This new mom is feeling hot!

Tess Holliday celebrated the Fourth of July in style as she hit the pool in a bikini.

The model, who gave birth to son Bowie Juniper four weeks earlier on June 6, captioned the photo with a simple “MILF.”

Holliday, who celebrates her 31st birthday Tuesday, is known for her body positivity and her “effyourbeautystandards” campaign. She shared photos throughout her pregnancy of her growing baby belly, often fighting back against commenters who said that her size hides her pregnancy.

“When people say to me, ‘I can’t tell you’re pregnant,’ ” she captioned a nude bathroom selfie clearly showing her baby bump from May 19. “I will continue to live unapologetically, to thrive in this body, prove the naysayers wrong & laugh at the ignorance.”

She dealt with similar criticism in April, and posted about her frustration.

“What I’ve had to be learn to be okay with (WHICH IS NOT COOL) is the fact that people still think it’s okay to comment on my body: ‘you don’t look pregnant’, ‘you must be have quadruplets’, ‘you are putting your baby at risk’ & a slew of other uneducated statements that are very far from my reality.”

Holliday’s Fourth of July bikini snaps didn’t escape criticism, but this time, the majority of her followers cheered on her body confidence.
