36-year-old Maria Nordø Jørstad is a normal woman who lives in Denmark, but since she started posting pictures of her pregnancy this spring she has received over 46,000 followers.
The reason? The unusual shape of her belly.
Maria told Swedish newspaper Expressen: “I’m proud of my stomach! I’m also surprised at how it can be so big without falling down. It’s amazing!”
Since the beginning of the year, thousands of people online have followed 36-year-old Maria’s pregnancy on Instagram, much because of her amazing stomach.
You see, Maria is pregnant with triplets, and the unusual shape they’ve created has prompted many people to react on the internet.
“At first there were strange comments, people tagging their friends and so on. But, over time, the response has become more positive,” she told Expressen.
“I’m proud of my stomach! I’m also surprised at how it can be so big without falling down. It’s amazing!”

34 weeks! ❤️❤️❤️ Today I’ve felt pretty good, and we are excited to have reached another milestone. In the beginning we feared that I would have to be hospitalized or put to bed rest towards the end, so we are very happy that I’ve made it this far without any serious complications. 💪🏼 Hope my body will keep up the good work for the next 8 days! 🤞🏼 ⠀ ⠀ #expectingtriplets #34weekspregnant #triplets #pregnant
Couldn’t lift things
Mary’s stomach began to adopt it’s shape around week 22. Despite having three growing babies in her belly, the rest of her body remained virtually unchanged. That said, she did experience trouble when it came to lifting things, and couldn’t pick up her two-year-old son.
Early on Thursday morning, the three triples arrived safe and sound. Their names are Agnes, Filip and Iben, and the adorable trio can be seen by visiting Maria’s Instagram @triples_of_copenhagen.
The human body really is incredible, or what?
