Tia Mowry Shares Postpartum Pics, Dismisses Pressure to Snap Back Into Shape (PHOTOS)

Celebrity culture can be quite entertaining, but it also creates unrealistic expectations both for the public and stars themselves. Just three days after giving birth, Jordin Sparks was seen looking slim and snatched on the Show Dogs premiere red carpet.

While there’s nothing wrong with showing off your svelte-figure after carrying life for nine months, Sparks and other celebrity mothers’ snap-back bodies could possibly plants seeds of insecurity in women who can’t or choose not to drop all of their baby weight immediately.

Tia Mowry understands, recently sharing photos of her postpartum body after giving birth to her second child. She admittedly still has a belly and looks, “4 months pregnant,” but refuses to rush her body back into shape.

“I wanted to shine a light on how our society creates false expectations after a woman gives birth. Ladies, it’s okay that our bodies are not PERFECT after our babies are born. Give your self time. Go at your own pace. Don’t allow people to put a time limit on YOUR body. You’ve just accomplished a miracle!”
