This eight-months-pregnant weightlifter is pumping some serious big-mama drama — but she’s pushing past the shade parade like a mother slugger.
Squatting with 315 pounds of weights on her back and about 5 pounds of unborn baby in her belly, fitness trainer Yanyah Milutinović is at the center of a mom-shaming cyber-storm spun by “haters” worried that her buns-of-steel workouts are hurting her bun in the oven.
But their digital digs don’t bother her.
“Those little ass-clowns on Instagram can’t stop me from doing what I do,” Milutinović, 34, told The Post. “I’m unbreakable.”
Crude critiques like “This isn’t it sis … You’re putting your baby’s life in danger” flood the comment section of a Reels video featuring Milutinović executing a series of squats and deadlifts with her husband Risel Martinez, 31.
“If I was your husband I would have you arrested you clout hungry h—,” another keyboard critic commented. “Is this legal?” some other shady naysayer said of Milutinović, a Serbian and Finnish native of Sweden. She is now living in New York with Martinez, who works as an NYPD police officer, and their 3-year-old-daughter, Smiljana. She’s due to give birth to their second child, a boy, next month.
In her problematic Instagram post — which has racked up over 10,000 likes and more than 260,000 views on her verified account — the musclebound mommy-to-be superimposed screenshots of the scoldings she regularly receives from social media sharpshooters who accuse her of pumping heavy iron for online popularity.
“Anything for the attention. Like really, what’s the point?” one attacker wrote, using the thumbs-down emoji to punctuate their displeasure with her pregnancy workouts.
But Milutinović — who exercises three to six days a week, conducts in-person fitness training sessions for up to 12 clients weekly and has still gained about 40 pounds throughout her pregnancy — is unfazed by the backlash.
“People online think I’m working out for Instagram fame or for vanity because I want to look good,” she said. “But for me that couldn’t be further from the truth.”
In firing back at internet trolls, Milutinović penned a lengthy caption for her controversial May 15 post: “Imagine if I would have lived my life the way that they would want me to, and that I allowed comments like these to break me down?” she wrote.
“Or dictate my decisions to live a healthy life for myself and my unborn child?” the pregnant powerhouse continued, adding that she exuded the same amount of sweat equity while carrying her daughter in 2017. “I am confident, strong, knowledgeable and in tune with myself and my growing child.”
To bolster her case, Milutinović claimed that there is a flurry of studies that back her choice to run, squat and lift while housing her little honey.
“There are so many health benefits to exercise for the mother and the growing child,” she said. “Research has shown that women who are active during pregnancy have children with higher IQs.”
She also alleged that her OB-GYN is “super supportive” of her fitness choices and guaranteed that her incoming son is developing at a healthy rate.
“We did a genetic test of the baby and he passed with flying colors,” Milutinović said. “He’s actually a little bit bigger than other babies at this stage.”
And her unashamed self-assuredness has attracted a handful of online allies, cheering her on for bodybuilding to the beat of her own drum.
“You’ve been such an inspiration to me for years now,” one social media supporter said in Milutinović’s comments section. “Just know way more of us got your back than there are lazy, knowledge-less clowns that wanna attack you.”
“Wooow, people are dumb. I am inspired by your strength and consistency,” another Instagram fan applauded.
And as a final address to her digital defenders and detractors alike, Milutinović said: “[I am] aware of who I am and what I want. I am built different.”
