Kim Kardashian's attempt to "break the internet" was not without competition from pics from Solange Knowles wedding and paparazzi pics of an 8-months pregnant Hayden Panettiere baby-mooning in Hawaii on the beach.
The latter too set the Internet ablaze with criticism of her quite large and bulbous tummy.
The Nashville star and her and her fiance since October 2013, athelete Wladimier Klitschko, are expecting their first child together. The Heroes alum announced the pregnancy this August on the Emmy Awards red carpet.

Panettiere told Hello! magazine that she gained 40 pounds this pregnancy and at 5 feet tall, one could see why she would appear to be overwhelmed by her growing belly.
All the asinine "she looks like she's about to pop" caliber of jokes makes me regret a bit our new societal glorification of the baby bump because the general public may not truly be ready for he reality that is pregnancy.
But alas, those who know of the miracle of life, are striving to one day become a mother and who genuinely adore the human body in pregnant form have to have thicker skin when encountering our fellow man making insensitive remarks in social media.
Rise above it all. Yes, let's be bumpwatch snobs! ha!
