We need a round of applause for Daphne Oz! The former The Chew host is sick and tired of seeing celebrity moms show off their slender bodies right after giving birth, and she wanted to show regular moms that they shouldn't feel the need to "bounce back" immediately.
"Seven weeks postpartum, still looking three months pregnant 🤗," she wrote alongside a photo of herself stripped down to just black lingerie in her bathroom. Her face screams "exhausted," and her tummy is still showing the aftermath of carrying baby Domenica. Oh, and by the way, she looks stunning!
"There is no bounce-back, it’s all onwards and upwards," she continued. "Every day has moments of total splendor and also a decent number of WTFs. I especially want the new mamas out there to hear that, because we see so much of how glossy motherhood can be and not enough of how real 3D life is always complicated (and better for it). Your experience will be just right for you. Prepare to be amazed by some things and horrified by others. motherhood is as complex and wonderful as the woman. ❤️"
Daphne knows what to expect because she's a mom of three, and fans were thrilled that she was so honest and open giving advice to other moms. "Thank you for being real and posting this. You look amazing!" wrote one thrilled fan. "Thank you for sharing and being so honest," agreed another. "We need more of this beauty in the world." We can't help but agree!
Daphne is actually launching her new website DaphneOz.com on April 1, and asked fans what they wanted her to write about. "Thank you for all your thoughts and feedback on what things you’d like to hear my take on regarding newborns and new mama care!" she wrote. The good news is... you want it all!! 😜and I can’t wait to share! Third time around I have some tried and true strategies." Since she "couldn't wait" to start sharing her wealth of knowledge, she decided to just post on Instagram until her site is up. Keep it coming, girl!
