Nine months pregnant and boasting a very small baby bump, Sarah Stage swapped her infamous belly photos for one of a burger?

The L.A.-based lingerie model posted an Instagram photo holding a burger at In-N-Out in Studio City on the heels of social media criticism over her svelt pregnant tummy.

The 30-year-old kept it cryptic with the caption, simply tagging her pal in the pic and adding heart and cheeseburger emojis.

The Costa Rican-European model – who is expecting a son in four weeks – has gotten much attention for her photo posts displaying her tiny belly (and abs of steel), even nine months into her pregnancy. Many fans – and a few critics – commented on the burger snapshot.

“I applaud you for sticking up to these nay sayers. You look awesome Sarah wish all the best is yet to come,” one supporter posted beside the In-N-Out photo.

“Unless you are an ob/gyn, you really shouldn’t comment about her size. Everybody is different. I applaud her for trying to appease you, but it is not necessary,” another wrote in Stage’s defense.

But others still weren’t convinced: “Oh look the baby got a fake bite of that in and out burger,” a follower commented.

It remains unclear whether she had any motive behind showing off the fast food.

Stage balances out her indulgences with an impressive dedication to the gym. The model’s Instagram frequently boasts fitness selfies and inspirational quotes to promote health and happiness.
