She recently shared she and her husband Ryan Jones made the decision to live a child-free lifestyle.
The blonde beauty later revealed she received a variety of hateful messages from her followers.
“CHILD-FREE AND HAPPY. I opened up about our choice to be child-free on my Stories yesterday… and, well, WHOA!” she wrote in an Instagram post.
“These are just a small handful of comments that people were sending to me. FYI… and not that you should need a reminder, but not having children is just as OK as deciding to have them.”
A variety of people expressed their disappointment in her decision, with some of Karina’s followers taking it personally.
“As a person who can’t have kids I’m offended to hear you want to be childless. It’s a blessing,” one person messaged her.
“You’ll grow up one day. Stop posting your a** on Instagram and want 2 [sic] be a good mum,” said another.
A third wrote: “You would be such a great mum! I can’t wait for you to change your mind.”
While some of the other messages were even more hateful – one person told her “women are here to reproduce” – Karina didn’t let it phase her.
“I love nothing more than seeing happy parents loving their children and their choices in life. Just as I love and respect those who decide not to take that path,” she continued.
“And it honestly breaks my heart to see and hear those people who desperately want to have children, be unable to.
“However, just because I might have the ability to be a parent, doesn’t mean that I have an obligation. You understand that, right?
“And, if you don’t, it’s time to understand that!”
Karina believes it’s time the stigma around the choice to be child-free needs to be changed.
She went on to say that we only get one shot at life.
The 32-year-old added: “Perhaps y’all would be better parents if you respected other people’s decisions about their bodies and their lives.
“Being child-free by choice does not make your life any less meaningful than a couple who have chosen to have children or those who wish to reproduce.”
This isn’t the first time Karina has gone public with her decision to not have children.
In August 2021, she wrote: “Why we’re not interested in having kids. Ok, so I’m getting a lot of messages about this since my story.
“The truth is that Ryan and I love kids! But, as for having our own, we are genuinely not interested. And there are so many factors.”
The model revealed how the couple are “selfish” as they love their lives together and having the freedom to do whatever they want.
She added: “We are also busy and obsessed with our work. Running a company is like having a child.
“You never rest, you’re always on and your love for it continues to grow every day.
“Also, the thought of putting another human on this planet scares me right now.
“Why on earth would we want to put another person on this planet to clean up, deal with or die in this mess we’ve created.”
