50 Celebrities Postpartum Who Showed What They Really Looked Like After Giving Birth

Published

on

Even today, it’s a general expectation in society that women will simply snap back into shape after giving birth. This flawed perception is a result of shame: for years, women have hidden their postpartum bodies under baggy clothing, only emerging after getting back in shape.

This is only exacerbated by the fact that many celebrities, who can afford nannies and personal trainers, are able to return to their pre-pregnancy bodies almost instantly, giving the impression that this is normal. It certainly isn’t. There should be nothing secretive or shameful about the after-effects of putting your body through the incredible pressure of giving birth. Every single woman who has ever experienced a pregnancy has also experienced changes to their body, so why is it such a secret?

Thankfully, some celebs are now choosing to break the stigma and share their own postpartum bodies, hoping to normalize this stage of pregnancy once and for all.

1. Sadia Slayy

Beauty influencer and blogger Sadia Slayy gave birth to her child nearly 2 years ago, and she had this to share on Instagram:

“Ive decided to share this even though it makes me 100% vulnerable to all of you and your judgements. I’m here to show you that we aren’t perfect. We all have flaws, and here is one of mine. I want you to feel better about yours and not be ashamed.”

2. Brie Bella

Retired professional wrestler and reality TV personality wanted to show her Instagram followers her reality after her second birth, writing:

“It’s been such a magical time✨ After giving birth it’s essential to take care of yourself so you can take care of the new love in your life too! Recovery the second time around has been so different in a good way because I was way more prepared”

3. Pink

Yes, Pink! She was quick to share what she truly thought about being “obese” post-pregnancy, writing:

“Would you believe I’m 160 pounds and 5’3″? By ‘regular standards’ that makes me obese. I know I’m not at my goal or anywhere near it after Baby 2 but dammit I don’t feel obese. The only thing I’m feeling is myself. Stay off that scale ladies!”

4. Hilaria Baldwin

Despite her apprehension to share a photo of her postpartum body, fitness and wellness expert Hilaria Baldwin plucked up the courage to do so – and we’re so glad she did.

“I took this yesterday when Leonardo was about 24 hours old. I did the same thing right after Rafael was born. It always makes me a bit nervous to do something like this, but I feel that in the age of such strong body shaming, I want to do all that I can to normalize a real body and promote healthy self esteem.”

5. Jenny Mollen

American actress and best-selling author Jenny Mollen educated us on what happens when you lose weight after pregnancy. She wrote:

“Not anorexia, it’s a thyroid issue. I don’t know what it says about me that I got this thin and didn’t think there was anything wrong. Last Friday, I had a bulge in my neck that finally got me to the doctor. I’m STILL waiting on blood work but my doc thinks it’s Graves. If you just had a baby and have lost an inordinate amount of weight, feel like you are on cocaine, are suddenly heat intolerant, can’t stop losing hair, and think your husband is being a dick it might just be your thyroid!! Get checked ASAP”

6. Kate Hudson

We might know her best from “Almost Famous”, but behind the scenes, Kate Hudson is just a regular mom. Sharing her own life as a new baby mom to Instagram, she wrote:

“So…here we go! The routine with our baby is getting more familiar and I’m ready to start taking a little time in the day focusing on myself. For me that means my health. Why? Because I wanna be around a long time for these three kiddos of mine.”

Daughter Ignores Dirty Sock On Floor So Mom Puts Up Sign Next To It Resulting In Hilarity

Published

on

What did your mom do when you left dirty laundry on the floor? Or, if you are a mom, what do you do when your children do it?

I bet our mothers, and any of us that are mothers ourselves, don’t do what this mom did. My mom sure didn’t.

I’m not a mom myself, but I’m trying to imagine what I would do. And I think it would depend on a variety of circumstances. But I can assure you I would never think to start something that ends up looking like a shrine in my bathroom.

Here’s what happened.

Save
Source: Facebook

Xep Campbell, of Port Townsend, Washington, found one of her daughter’s very dirty socks on the bathroom floor. Since this wasn’t the first time such a thing had happened, she decided that Instead of picking it up, she would conduct an experiment. In her Facebook post, she says,

“I decided not to toss it in the hamper but instead see how long it would stay there, sort of a sociological experiment.”

A week later, her 10-year-old daughter Kestrel still hadn’t picked up the sock. I’m not sure if this means she failed the test, or if the amount of time has some other deep sociological meaning. But that isn’t the point.

After a week had passed and the sock remained on the floor, Xep decided to up her game. Because surely, after this much time her daughter had seen the sock there—I’m guessing this was a shared bathroom—and picked it up.

I certainly knew better than to test my mom that way.

But Campbell is made of different stuff than my mom. As she tells TODAY Parents,

“I try not to take anything in life too seriously and we often play little jokes on one another, so I made the museum label and figured she would roll her eyes, laugh a little, and then pick up the sock.”

Save
Source: Facebook

She wasn’t expecting what happened next.

Upon seeing the wannabe plaque on the wall, Kestrel texted her mom.

Save
Source: Facebook

At which point I would have said, “Haha, you’re hysterical, mom.” And picked up the damn sock, because I would not expect her humor to last indefinitely.

Not Kestrel.

As Campbell said, her daughter,

“Gamed her shame.”

When Campbell got home that day her daughter informed her that she had made a pedestal for the sock. Because, a museum piece, right? It deserved a pedestal. Maybe even a glass case.

Save
Source: Facebook

At this point, Campbell tells TODAY,

“I realized then the game was on. It sort of took a life of its own after that.”

And it did indeed.

Campbell decided that like any true museum piece, this objet d’art needed an awestruck audience.

From here, it seems that mother and daughter just got silly and started having even more fun with the dirty sock. And I have to wonder if this was also a stinky sock. Because who could put up with that for so long?

Regardless, an audience was formed. And not your typical museum type crowd of tourists with cameras. Oh, no. This was a crowd of barnyard animals.

Save

Source: Facebook

And why stop at barnyard animals?

This whole thing started on US Thanksgiving, so there might be a natural transition here, at least in terms of holidays. And either mother or daughter is keeping up with what’s trending in the news.

As Upworthy reports, the newsworthy addition is a representation of the first monolith that popped up in Utah in November, and the subsequent ones that appeared as well. Why not add one to the bathroom?

Save

Source: Facebook

And finally, the holiday theme.

Before long, a nativity scene appeared on and around the sock. Some more art was added to the museum bathroom wall. And eventually, a gorilla joined the barnyard animals. Perhaps for a bit of diversity?

Save

Source: Facebook

With all of this going on, you might think the family had a huge bathroom, but that’s not the case at all. Imagine being not quite awake in the morning and trying to brush your teeth without stepping on the exhibit?

For those that know Campbell, none of this is likely surprising. She told Upworthy that she aimed to live her life in a way that positively impacts those she comes in contact with.

She explains,

“I always try to take the creative route whenever possible. There is a lot of beige in the world that needs to be countered. There are also endless possibilities to be creative with even the most mundane aspects of life. I tend to go for the weird option when it’s there.”

I think I’d like to meet her.

Going through pregnancy and giving birth can cause significant changes to a woman’s body–weight gain, skin stretching, and hormone fluctuations to name a few. So naturally, once the baby is out, the body doesn’t just snap back into place like some sort of elastic band that has been stretched too far. And when you are a new mother who also happens to be famous, expectations around what your body should look like postpartum can be even harder to meet. There are some celebrities, however, who refused to be ashamed of their new bodies. Check out this list of 60 celebrities postpartum who showed what they really looked like after giving birth and be sure to find beauty in your own body as well!
