She captioned it, ''When people ask how I’m feeling being pregnant...Most days I luckily feel like cheetara from Thundercats. A powerhouse, strong, incredible, magical superwoman.''

She continued, ''Other days I’m Krang from Turtles. I can’t move properly, I’m bloated and I feel like there’s a Thai boxing match happening in my uterus. Today, after only 4hrs sleep Its a Krang day so @gorka_marquez you know the drill, don’t come home without pizza or Doritos dude.''

Her fans loved her honesty.

One said, ''This post is everything! Hoping for more Cheetara days for you!!''

While another wrote, ''Couldn’t have explained it better myself! I’m with you all the way on the Doritos.''

Gorka responded with crying with laughter emojis.
