Peta Murgatroyd Shares the Reality of Post-Baby Bodies


The picture with a powerful message!

Peta Murgatroyd and fiancé Maksim Chmerkovskiy (from Dancing with the Starswelcomed their first child, Shai Aleksander, at the beginning of January. Since then, the new mommy has been embracing her post-baby body and sending positive message to women everywhere.

The 30-year-old recently posted a picture to her Instagram of what her body looks like since giving birth. It did not shrink back to is pre-baby size immediately AND THAT’S FINE!

Real life: I took this photo 8 days post birth. I left the hospital looking 5 months pregnant. Many people think a woman should shrink right back to her pre-birth weight immediately. That is just not the truth for most. The female body is incredible and resilient, but healing and strengthening take time. Now it’s time for patience and hard work. Lots of love to all the new mamas out there on the journey. 💪🏼💪🏼 #yesihaveascrunchieinmyhair#shaiiswortheverypound

And while the new mom is sharing her body transformation, the couple has decided to wait to show pictures of their baby boy.

“We can’t wait to share him with you, but for the first most crucial weeks of his life we’re just keeping him for ourselves and soaking up these moments,” Murgatroyd wrote on Instagram. “Thank you for your patience and all of your love.”
