Jessica Simpson is wearing what under her sweats?
There's the magazine cover photo of the new celebrity mom glowing as she looks down at the beautiful, sleeping baby in her arms—and then there's real life.
In real life, postpartum mothers are just as likely to be wearing diapers as their babies are, and bumps need months to deflate.
That's why we're so grateful for the way celebrities are ditching damaging narratives about postpartum perfection and embracing the messy authenticity of new motherhood. Thanks to these modern mamas, the rest of us are seeing our own experiences reflected in pop culture, and that lets us know we're not alone.
Here's to all the high profile mamas keeping it real in mesh panties, hospital gowns + girdles (because we're doing the same).
Hilaria Baldwin had documented her postpartum experience through bump selfies, proving that even when you are a yoga pro, postpartum fitness is a journey and bumps don't deflate overnight.
Cheers to keeping it real, mamas!
