Bikini model ‘lost male followers’ after having baby

Allison Yee

She boasts over 1.5 million followers on Instagram, but Aussie fitness blogger Hannah Polites claims her fan base has dropped substantially since she gave birth to her daughter Evaliah last August.

Like any other new mum, the 26-year-old is a fan of posting adorable photos of her young daughter, but she says not everyone has been happy to see them.

“I definitely have lost a lot of male followers and people that maybe aren't interested in babies,” Hannah told the Gold Coast Bulletin.

Despite the drop in male followers, Hannah doesn’t care saying she’s “gained a lot of mummy followers”.

After starting her blog back in 2012, the midwife – who is engaged to marry her paediatrician fiancé Garth Small next year - believes a lot of her followers have matured and are focusing on starting family’s of their own.

Despite this, the Gold Coast mum has copped her fair share of criticism.

After being trolled over everything from how she holds her baby to breastfeeding in public, and posting too many photos on Instagram, the mum admits it’s all water off a duck’s back and she won’t let anyone tell her how to parent.

“I sometimes get comments from people on Instagram saying I should be looking after my baby but I think if Evaliah isn’t in the photo they just assume I’m not with her,” she says.
