With a baby on board, Lindsay Hubbard is making sure she collects her coins and she’s clapping back at those who criticized her for doing so.

The Summer House star announced her pregnancy with a paid partnership with ClearBlue, and she recently took to Instagram to defend her decision to do the reveal via a sponsored post.

In an Instagram Story on Friday, July 5, the 37-year-old reality star shared a post from another social media user that read, “Lindsay would have to make a pregnancy announcement at some point, so why not cash in? What was she supposed to do? Say no, to keep the bitter internet hags happy?”

The post also included a meme of The Real Housewives of New York City alum Bethenny Frankel with the quote, “It’s so stupid.”

In agreement with the comment, Hubbard added her own two cents, writing above the meme, “My thoughts exactly,” with the crying laughing emoji. “My expenses just doubled so…. Let’s goooo!”

“Trigger Warning: This post contains more fireworks than the 4th of July! WE’RE PREGNANT!!!!! 💥💥💥,” Hubbard shared. “I truly believe the universe has a bigger plan and this is it! 💫.”
