9 Celebrities Who Know "Bouncing Back After Baby" Is BS — and Proved It With Honest Postbaby Pics

A lot of expectations are put on women to "bounce back after baby," but thankfully, of late, so many moms are sharing their real postpartum bodies to end the stigma against sharing stretch marks, extra weight, and cellulite postbaby. Recently, more and more celebrity moms have opened up about their bodies after birth to show that even though they're in the spotlight, their bodies aren't any different than a "regular" woman's and that they too struggle with feeling differently about their bodies after becoming a mom.

The resounding sentiment, however, despite the admittance of struggling with insecurities, is that we all deserve to — and should — love and cherish our bodies for what they've done rather than what they look like. See the celebrities who have bared all postbirth to prove that every body is beautiful.

Victoria's Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel is used to people looking at her nearly naked body, but that doesn't mean she was ready to accept people's cruel comments regarding a photo of her walking the beach in a bikini less than two weeks after having her son.

"Society can be so cruel to one another," she wrote on an Instagram story featuring the above photo. "Beauty standards are sometimes impossible for women these days. I'm not ashamed to show my postpartum tummy, I am proud actually . . . I carried my son for nine months in there. I think I've earned the right to have a little tummy. Is it because I'm a model? Well, we are normal people too, so let me enjoy the beach in peace, please."

Hilaria Baldwin

Mom of four Hilaria Baldwin has posted a mirror selfie of her postbaby body within 24 hours of having each of her kids, with the exception of her first, Carmen. She openly admits she was too nervous with Carmen, but realized after having Leo that she wanted to normalize postpartum bodies, and she has continued to do so in various forms since having her three boys.

Peta Murgatroyd

A dancer's body is typically strong and toned, but Dancing With the Stars' Peta Murgatroyd shared a postpartum photo to proves it doesn't matter what your body looked like before baby — it takes time to heal. The professional dancer posted a candid shot to Instagram of herself eight days after she had her son, Shai Aleksander, to share what her body looked and felt like during that time.

Hilary Duff

Five years after giving birth, Hilary Duff opened up about being proud of her body, which gave her the "greatest gift" — her son, Luca. "I am posting this on behalf of young girls, women, and mothers of all ages," she wrote on Instagram. "Ladies, let's be proud of what we've got and stop wasting precious time in the day wishing we were different, better, and unflawed."

Tia Mowry

Seven weeks postpartum, Tia Mowry shared a photo with a powerful caption about feeling like something was wrong with her because she'd previously seen photos of celebrities and models with flat bellies sporting bikinis at the beach two weeks postpartum. "To be honest, it had to take time for me to embrace my new body," she wrote. "With this second pregnancy, I now have embraced that fact that I've housed a human being. A miracle. A life. If it takes a while for me to get back to my normal self, than so be it. This. Is. Me. And I love me."
