Following the birth of her son Jameson in 2016, Pink shared a gym selfie.

“Would you believe I’m 160 pounds [72kg] and 5’3″? By ‘regular standards’ that makes me obese,” she wrote.

“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.”

Tennis superstar Serena Williams reveals her body isn’t the same since having her daughter Alexis Olympia in September 2017.

“After I came out [of the hospital], I had a stomach but I thought, this is kind of cool. I have a stomach because the baby was there,” she said.

Cardi B

In 2018, after the rapper gave birth to her daughter Kulture she posted a snap of her stomach line, and asked fans:

“Ladies how do you guys get rid of the black line in the middle of your stomach after giving birth??”

This line is also known as the linea nigra and is likely caused by changing hormones.

Anne Hathaway says there’s no shame in gaining weight during pregnancy.

“There is no shame in gaining weight during pregnancy (or ever),” she wrote.“There is no shame if it takes longer than you think it will to lose the weight (if you want to lose it at all).”

“There is no shame in finally breaking down and making your own jean shorts because last summer’s are just too dang short for this summer’s thighs.”

“Bodies change. Bodies grow. Bodies shrink. It’s all love (don’t let anyone tell you otherwise).”

Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen shared a video of her postpartum tummy after giving birth to her second child, Miles.

In May 2020, Made In Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh captioned a snap of herself in her underwear after giving birth to her daughter Sienna.

“I now see photos of myself pre-pregnancy and remember thinking at the time I didn’t like my body at certain angle but now I look back and think I looked great,” she wrote.

“It’s made me realise how critical I am of myself and how it’s so crucial, as women, that we learn to let ourselves off the hook.

“My mantra has always been that you exercise because you love your body not because you hate it, so any movement I do now is with the intention to feel good and never to punish myself.

“Sienna is worth every extra inch, pound and stretch mark. My body made me a Mother and for that I’ll always be grateful.”
