      That’s why BN said “first photos” not “official photos”. A detailed post will follow soon.

      Stop cyber bullying and body shaming women! What the hell ! You’re even a boy ! Shut up and leave her the hell alone. Did she complain to you? Or does she look unhealthy to you? Or you’re her doctor? Tired of this nonsense! Shut up she looks okay.

      Cecilia I agree that the manner ofili said it was wrong but for you to say she looks okay, is not entirely true.
