From Katy Perry posing in a breast pump bra to Ashley Graham proudly showing off her stretch marks, stars are getting real about their post-baby bodies, per Cosmopolitan U.K. And as if we couldn’t love her even more, Jennifer Garner opened up about how motherhood changed her body — and she got real about the effects pregnancy has on an expecting mom’s body.

Maren Morris is embracing her new curves
Instead of trying to get back into shape, Maren Morris is sharing her newfound love for her body after giving birth to her son, Hayes. In an Instagram post, the “My Church” singer pays tribute to her “badass” body. She writes, “[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. The pressure we put on mothers to ‘snap back’ is insurmountable and deeply troublesome. You are and always were a f***ing badass. And yeah, I’m proud.”
The outspoken singer and Grammy Award winner is known for speaking her truth (via Glamour). Morris has spoken honestly about C-sections, judgy moms, and postpartum depression, per US Weekly. And new moms shouldn’t feel pressured to “erase any evidence” that they had a baby, she told People. “It’s like, ‘I did something that half the population can’t do.’ So I think that’s pretty f***ing rad,” Morris said to reporters in April 2021, via People.
