Jillian Harris is firing back at online critics!
The pregnant former "Bachelorette" star faced a barrage of negative comments after posting an Instagram photo on Monday.
“Today has been rough because I posted a picture of me this morning in the car with a cup of coffee and then later on I posted another pic of a coffee and all of these people are like ‘You shouldn’t be drinking so much caffeine,’" Harris, 36, told People.
The comments warned Harris about studies showing an association between caffeinated drinks and pregnancy loss.
"I’m like, well, first of all, it could be decaf. Second of all, I stopped drinking alcohol, I stopped partying, I don’t do Botox anymore … I’m going to drink my damn coffee!”
Harris, now the host HGTV’s "Love It or List It, Too," told People it wasn't the first time her choices have been questioned since she and boyfriend Justin Pasutto announced they were expecting three weeks ago.
Some fans, Harris said, have also criticized her decision to dye her hair.
Harris admitted that the negative comments are tough — but, she said, she realizes the fan feedback comes from "a place of love."
"[T]hey’re just trying to show me that they care, so I try to take a step back and say, ‘Thank you so much for your advice, I’ll remember that.’"
