Celebrities who’ve posted incredibly candid photos of their baby bodies before and after birth

Welcoming a child into the world is widely known as one of the greatest experiences life has to offer, but as a result of snap-back photos and Instagram filters, the pressure on mums can be huge.

So, here’s a look at some of the ladies showing it for how it is, posting candid snaps of bumps and postpartum bodies without a filter, or three.

Ashley Graham

Model Ashley Graham is a beacon of positivity when it comes to body shots, and never fails to show it how it is. After giving birth to her son Isaac at the start of the year, Ashley wasted no time taking to Instagram to document stretch marks left on her stomach. “Same me. Few new stories,” she wrote.

Kate Hudson

Actress Kate Hudson, 41, got candid with her 11.9 million followers, posting a picture in her lounge after giving birth to her first child with Danny Fujikawa in October 2018.

She wrote: "The routine with our baby is getting more familiar and I'm ready to start taking a little time in the day focusing on myself. For me that means my health," whilst donning activewear.

Chrissy Teigen

Unafraid to share a stretch mark or two, model Chrissy Teigen shared a snap of her stomach after giving birth to her and John Legend’s second child, Miles.

The 34 year old posted a clip of her stretch marks on Twitter alongside the caption: "Mum bod alert!"

Gemma Atkinson

Gemma Atkinson was “loudly and proudly [rocking] her post baby curves,” in an Insta post shared after having her baby Mia last year.

In the candid post, Gemma detailed how exercise is a crucial part of her life and routine, adding: “Part of training well is training smart and recovering long term. Not just a quick fix to 'snap back’.”

She added: “I hope new mums realise they don’t have to be back to their post baby body so quickly. Growing a human for 9 months is a big deal and it’ll take longer than a few weeks to get your body back to how you want it."

Amy Schumer

We are totally here for Amy Schumer’s incredibly no-nonsense pregnancy shots on Instagram, proving yet again that she really is one of the most down-to-earth celebrities going.

After welcoming her first child Gene with husband Chris Fischer, the star, whilst sat on the toilet, wrote: “Milf alert 1 o'clock."

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway shared a simple snap of a pair of jeans cut in half with scissors resting on top. Captioning the pic, the actress wrote: “There is no shame in gaining weight during pregnancy (or ever).

"There is no shame if it takes longer than you think it will to lose the weight (if you want to lose it at all).

"There is no shame in finally breaking down and making your own jean shorts because last summer's are just too dang short for this summer's thighs. Bodies change. Bodies grow. Bodies shrink. It's all love (don't let anyone tell you otherwise.) Peace.” Hear, hear!

Serena Williams

Tennis star Serena Williams wrote a humorous caption on a post after giving birth to her first child, Alexis Olympia.

Opening up about her postpartum body in an interview with Allure, the star said: “After I came out [of the hospital], I had a stomach but I thought, this is kind of cool. I have a stomach because the baby was there."

Kim Kardashian West

Known for sharing most aspects of her life on reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim Kardashian wasn’t afraid to jump on Instagram to tell her followers how it really was whilst pregnant.

She wrote: “First they said I'm too skinny so I have to be faking it…Now they say I'm too big so I have to be faking it…SMH! Some days I'm photographed before I eat & look smaller, some days I've just eaten & I look bigger. It's all a part of the process.”

Nadine Mulkerrin

Hollyoaks star Nadine Mulkerrin posted a refreshingly honest snap to her Instagram after giving birth to her first child with her fiancé Rory Douglas-Speed.

The actress shared two nude pictures and an underwear snap displaying her post-baby body to break the taboo surrounding birth.

She wrote: “1 Week Postpartum! Was thinking should I really post a pic of my bare a** on insta…Then I thought b****r it!!

"The recovery is tough, the tears have lifted, my t**s are big brown aggressive and slightly Pamela Anderson-esque but you can’t do anything fun with them! 'It’s the best rollercoaster I’ve ever been on I don’t wanna get off! All mummies your amazing!! It’s true it’s all worth it.”
