9 Celebrity Moms Who Were Proud to Show Their Postpartum Body to the World
When you go through pregnancy, your body changes a lot in a short time. If you have children, you surely have before and after pictures, or memories of how that hormonal journey transpired that lasted months. In this sense, many celebrities, because of their public role, take the opportunity to share images of their postpartum body change and thus break with their hegemonic role, demonstrating that, whether famous or not, all women go through the same thing.
Bright Side followed these celebrities closely as they underwent their pregnancies and also after they gave birth. We were happy to see how they publicly revealed what they looked like after their transforming experience, especially because of the honesty and truth of the stories they shared with everyone.
1. Kate Hudson
Famous actress Kate Hudson jumped to fame after the amazing performance she delivered in Almost Famous and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Not long ago, she shared images on social media of her body during her third pregnancy. Sometime later, the first daughter she conceived together with her current partner, Danny Fujikawa, was born. In the picture we’ve included below, you can see how her body looked after she gave birth.
2. Ashley Graham
She has been on the cover of magazines like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and Glamour. She is one of the most famous models in the world too. You probably know Ashley Graham went through her first pregnancy in 2019/2020. Then, in January 2020, her son Isaac came into the world, and in October of the same year, several months later, she shared pictures of the traces left by the pregnancy on her body.
3. Chiara Ferragni
The Italian entrepreneur, blogger, and influencer gave birth to her second child, Vittoria Lucia, on March 23, 2021. On May 17, almost 2 months after giving birth, she was already showing off her body naturally on her Instagram.
You might also not be aware that Pink has 2 children. In 2011, her first daughter Willow was born, whom we see in the picture next to her mommy who’s pregnant with her second child. This happened in 2016 and it was from this second pregnancy that Jameson was born. In April 2017, about 4 months after giving birth, she shared a picture of her workout.
5. Meghan Trainor
The singer, songwriter, and music producer had her first child in 2021. Little Riley was born from her marriage to actor Daryl Sabara, who you may remember from the Spy Kids saga. A day before she gave birth, Meghan posted a workout video in which she talked about the importance of keeping her body healthy throughout all of her pregnancy. In that same video, she said she was looking forward to the beginning of her recovery and her honesty about the whole process was very illuminating and well-received by all of her fans.
6. Amy Schumer
The actress, screenwriter, and producer, became popular after she was cast to appear in films like Trainwreck and I Feel Pretty. Schumer went through her first pregnancy during parts of 2018 and 2019. On May 5, her first son Gene was born. When he was just 2 weeks old, she shared a photo of her son, after a bath, on social media.
7. Ashley Tisdale
You probably know her as Sharpay Evans, the villain of the High School Musical movies. Ashley is currently 36 years old, and during 2020/2021 she was pregnant with her daughter Jupiter Iris, who came into the world on March 23. Almost a month later, she shared a photo by a pool, where she is seen with a figure similar to the one she had before becoming a mother.
8. Ashley James
The presenter, DJ, and former star of the reality show Made in Chelsea announced she was tracking the evolution of her pregnancy until January 2021, when her son was finally born. This process generated in Ashley a new way of appreciating her body, so much so that she shared a photo that was taken just 2 hours after giving birth.
9. Cardi B
Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, better known as Cardi B, recently announced her second pregnancy on her Instagram. In April 2018, she had announced her first, and Kulture Kiari Cephus was soon born. 3 months later, she posted a photo, asking with a funny tone, “Girls, how do you get rid of the black line in the middle of your stomach after giving birth?”
