Fitness influencer Massy Arias took to Instagram yesterday to reveal some pretty unexpected news – she’s now a single mum!
Being a qualified health coach, the CEO of her own supplement brand, a Fabletics ambassador, a full-time mum, and having almost 3 million Instagram followers, Massy Arias is definitely killing it.
And as if that wasn’t enough, she’s just confirmed her divorce with former partner Willie Beamen, and reveals she is now creating her fitness empire as a single mum too! Is there anything Massy can’t do?
Who is Massy Arias?
Massiel Indhira Arias, better known as Massy or formerly Mankofit online, is a certified personal trainer and fitness influencer.
Born in the Dominican Republic, she has been an American resident since the age of 14 and currently lives in Los Angeles, California.
She has a YouTube channel, as well as a 2.7 million follower Instagram account where she teaches people how to adopt a healthy diet and active lifestyle – all whilst being a full-time mother to her beautiful daughter Indi!
Massy used to be with husband Willie Beamen
If you’ve been a fan of Massy for a long time, then you probably remember somebody else being part of the family.
Massy used to be married to Willie Beamen, who she would often feature in some of her fitness videos.
But now, there seems to be no sign of him on her social media – so what happened?
Massy revealed she is now a single mum on Instagram
Massy took to Instagram yesterday to post a beautiful photo of herself with her daughter, and the caption really caught a lot of people’s attention.
She said: “Being a single mom is hard. Being a single working mom is even harder. I just want to tell all my fellow hardworking mamas out there what a great job you’re doing.”
Many fans were shocked to hear that Massy is now divorced, as she kept it very quiet on social media. One fan on Twitter said: “I did not know Massy Arias got divorced…….. since when?” And another said: “Omg, I just discovered that Massy Arias is single.”
In her post, Massy continued to say:
“Being a stay home mom is the hardest job anyone can do, and having to be the breadwinner for your little one comes with a lot of guilt and pressure. Regardless of which position you play as a mom, you should know you’re AMAZING; I hope you focus on doing the best you can with what you have, vs the picture society paints in your head.”
She then discussed how this year has been the hardest, but also the most gratifying year of her life, and thanks everybody for their continuous support.
