Blake Lively Got Real About The Post-Baby Body Expectations All Women Face
It's no secret flabby dadbods are a pretty hot commodity these days.
So, why are people still shaming new moms for having a little extra weight after bringing a new life into the world?
Recently, Blake Lively decided to address this issue, speaking out against the ideal post-pregnancy body and implying society puts too much pressure on new mothers to drop the baby weight immediately after giving birth.
She made remarks about how unfair it is that the press criticizes the figures of new moms and only celebrates the ladies who bounce back to flat tummies right after having a baby.
During a video interview with Sunrise in Australia, the interviewer asked Lively questions about her latest film, "The Shallows," including how she prepped her to get her flawless figure for the role.
The interviewer also commented on how it's great for an actress to challenge herself with an action film right after pregnancy, since the media is normally curious how stars manage to score their post-baby bods.
Lively had the perfect response to this statement, saying,
It's so unfair, it's so celebrated. I think a woman's body after having a baby is pretty amazing. You don't have to have be Victoria's Secret-ready right away. You've just done this incredible miracle that life has to offer. I would really like to see that celebrated.
