Postpartum and getting back on your feet is difficult, yet different for any woman. Some celebrities decided to show their postpartum bodies to spread body positivity and to motivate new moms to embrace their new bodies.
Viral Strange has gathered 23 pictures of these celebrity moms that have posted their natural post-baby bodies.
1. Karlie Kloss
Kloss posted a photo showing her sculpted abs, five months after giving birth.
The singer posted her stretch marks, less than a month after giving birth.
3. Lauren Burnham Luyendyk
“11 days postpartum. Just a reminder that not everyone gets a flat tummy back right after popping babies out, and it’s all good. Proud of this squishy belly even if I have to ask, “What could possibly be in there?!’ LOL,” wrote Lauren.

“I am never saying ‘trying to get my body back again. No one took it; I didn’t lose it like a set of keys,’ wrote Maren a year after giving birth to her son.

6. Robyn Lawley
“I knew the stretch marks were coming, and as they’re fading into white (like all my others), I thought I might capture them.

“When I look down, I see stretch marks that are here to stay, ab muscles that need continuing strengthening, legs that are powerful, and feet that are ready to fly! My stomach] still looks like a hot mess, but the stability and strength are coming back to my core,” wrote the athlete.
16. Hilaria Baldwin
“I took this yesterday when Leonardo was about 24 hours old. It always makes me a bit nervous to do something like this, but I feel that in the age of such strong body shaming, I want to do all that I can to normalize a real body and promote healthy self-esteem,” wrote Hilaria in 2016.
17. Ashley Tisdale

Brittany flaunted her body as soon as she was able to get back to the gym.
