Kendra Wilkinson decided to reveal a less than flattering photo of her post baby tummy and we thank her for it.
Media and celebrities play a big role in body insecurities, often painting an unrealistic picture especially about post baby bodies. When a celebrity decides to embrace and proudly reveal what a post baby body really looks like, it is like a breath of fresh air from the ‘bounce-back’ obsessed media and it really helps relieve the pressure many women feel to snap back into shape just weeks after giving birth.
This Mother’s Day Former Playboy model and TV personality Kendra Wilkinson took her Instagram to reveal what her tummy looked liked after giving birth to her two children, Hank (age 6) and Alijah (almost 2).
The photo shows Kendra in her bra and a close-up of her post baby belly showing stretched out skin with the caption: “Look what my 2 babies did… They made me happy. #happymothersday”
Kendra also posted a flashback photo showing the real side of motherhood: “Happy mastitis day. Ooops I meant Mother’s Day!! Flashback to the first week with Alijah.”
Kendra’s fans called her inspiring and powerful in the Instagram comments and thanked her for showing her real celebrity post baby body. Too bad there aren’t more celebrity moms to be so open about their post baby stretch marks.
