Former The Bachelor and The Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky — who is also known by her married name, Ali Manno — recently got very candid on Instagram when she shared a stunning body confident selfie with her followers. The new photo showed the gorgeous mom of two as she went completely makeup-free and rocked a mismatched two-piece while sitting by her swimming pool.
The reality star, who shot to fame on Season 14 of The Bachelor with Jake Pavelka in 2010 and then looked for love again on Season 6 of The Bachelorette, proudly showed off her body without retouching or deceiving angles and flashed a big smile for the camera.
Ali took the photo herself with her right hand and had her textured long blond hair flowing down over her left shoulder.
She wowed in a blue, pink, and white tie-dyed cropped bikini top with a round neck, which showed off plenty of her décolletage.
Rather than opting to wear the matching piece on her lower half, she paired the tie-dyed top with bright red bikini bottoms. She accessorized with a gold necklace that had a half heart pendant.
Ali ditched the makeup to let her natural beauty do all the talking. Her bare skin glowed in the sunlight as a swimming pool filled with inflatables could be seen behind her.
In the caption, the reality star confirmed the bikini photo was all natural and was posted to her account to inspire others. She explained to her 844,000 followers that she decided to share it because she was feeling “strong and beautiful.”
She also shared a number of hashtags alongside the photo, including “#everybodyisbeatiful,” “#bodypositivity,” and “#bodypositive.”
The stunning candid has received more than 66,000 likes since she shared it to her account. More than 1,500 fans took to the comments section to leave messages, many of which contained a whole lot of praise for the TV presenter after seeing her be so open and honest about her body.
“Love seeing how real and transparent you are!” one Instagram user wrote with a heart-eye emoji.

“THANK YOU FOR THIS REALNESS. It means a lot to me,” another person commented.
“That’s amazing! Working towards the body positivity, love opening my IG and seeing your posts!” gushed a third person.
Ali has always been pretty candid with fans on social media, as she documents her life as a wife and mom of two.
As The Inquisitr reported back in November, the star opened up to her followers about the scary time she discovered her 3-year-old daughter Molly — who she shares with husband Kevin Manno — had a 104-degree fever.
