There is a goddess walking among us, and her name is Jill MacLean.
MacLean just gave birth to her son this week, but before that, she did something very inspiring with him in the oven: pole dance. Yup.
The new mum isn’t a pole dancing newbie. It’s her profession. However, toward the end of her pregnancy, MacLean felt unattractive and used the pole to feel herself again. And it definitely worked. Watch MacLean get her damn life on the pole in the video below–clearly at the end of her pregnancy. Sky-high heels and all.
“I am not going to write a speech justifying what I do, as a pole dancer and now as a soon-to-be-mother. But I will say this… As women we all want to feel sexy, this is how I feel sexy,” MacLean wrote on her website Cleo’s Rock ’n’ Pole. “This is how I express myself and I’m sure my son is gonna think his mum rocks when we bring out these pics on his 21st birthday! My husband also thinks I’m pretty cool!”
We think you’re cool, too. And before you start posting, “This is unsafe!” all over the Web, hear MacLean out.
“I take my pregnancy VERY seriously and would never put on a pair of seven- or eight-inch heels if I wasn’t completely comfortable and confident in them,” she wrote. “To be honest, I am more clumsy at home barefoot than I am in a studio with sky-high stilettos on.”
To each her own. Cheers to MacLean for proving sexiness comes in all sizes…and trimesters.
