Daphne Oz, former co-host of The Chew, is getting positive feedback for posting an honest bathroom mirror selfie about her post-baby body. In the Instagram caption, Daphne, who welcomed her third child in December, shares that there’s no such thing as bouncing back.
"Seven weeks post-partum, still looking three months pregnant," she captioned a mirror selfie of herself in a black bra and underwear. "There is no bounce-back, it's all onwards and upwards. 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)."
"You're experience will be just right for you,” she continued. “Prepare to be amazed by some things and horrified by others. Motherhood is as complex and wonderful as the woman."
Numerous mamas came to appreciate her post, including Jessica Alba and Tamera Mowry-Housley, who commented: "Oh I still get questions if I'm pregnant or not. My daughter is 2 and half.”
Daphne will be posting more mom-related content when her site launches on April 1.
"I can't wait to share!" she previously teased on social media. "Third time around, I have some tried and true strategies."
