Jillian Harris Speaks Out Against Critics, Won’t Give Up Coffee For Pregnancy

Jillian Harris of The Bachelorette is pregnant with her first baby, but she is doing things her own way. This reality star is now speaking out against her critics and saying that she gave up a lot for this pregnancy, but don’t expect her to quit drinking coffee. People shared what Jillian Harris had to say about people calling her out for everything she is doing during her pregnancy.

Right now is a very exciting time in Jillian’s life and she is revealing that she is dealing with a lot of critics. Here is what Jillian had to say.

“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. All of these people are like ‘You shouldn’t be drinking so much caffeine. 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 d**n coffee!”

Jillian Harris is staying busy since she was on The Bachelorette. She has been her own online blog and hosts HGTV’s Love It or List It, Too. Being in the public eye, Jillian Harris is getting a lot of criticism about the way that she is doing things during her pregnancy. Besides the coffee comments, Jillian is also getting comments from people about the fact that she dyed her hair. Harris shared that she got permission from her doctor before getting this done.

When it comes to the critics, Jillian Harris wants to get defensive right away, but realizes that isn’t always the way to do things. Here is what she shared.

“It’s funny because I don’t like people telling me what to do. But then I have to remember that most of the people that are following me are doing it because it comes from a place of love and they’re just trying to show me that they care. I try to take a step back and say, ‘Thank you so much for your advice, I’ll remember that.”

Jillian Harris is due with her first child in August. She admits that one thing she is nervous about is losing sleep, because she does love to sleep. Right now they travel a lot for work and she knows that some of this stuff is going to have to change when the baby is born. Jillian is willing to work less or bring the baby along with her, whatever she has to do to make it work. Jillian and her boyfriend may not be married yet, but they have a dog together and have already lived together for the four years.

People shared when Jillian Harris actually announced her pregnancy in early March. She was over the moon excited and said she can’t remember a time that her heart was fuller. Jillian has wanted to be a mom for a long time, but her boyfriend is younger than her and they waited until they were both ready for this big step. They have big plans to keep the sex of the baby a secret until it gets here. Even though Jillian didn’t find love that lasted on The Bachelorette things have worked out great for her.
