Dancing with the Stars fans rejoiced earlier this month when costars turned real-life couple Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd announced the birth of their new baby, Shai.
Just two weeks later, the DWTS pro-dancer took to Instagram to upload a pic of her post-baby bod. The refreshing and realistic picture has been receiving an overwhelming positive response from fans and followers.
In the post, Murgatroyd wrote,
“Real life: I took this photo 8 days post birth. I left the hospital looking 5 months pregnant. Many people think a woman should shrink right back to her pre-birth weight immediately. That is just not the truth for most.The female body is incredible and resilient, but healing and strengthening take time. Now it’s time for patience and hard work. Lots of love to all the new mamas out there on the journey. #yesihaveascrunchieinmyhair #shaiiswortheverypound”
The couple has yet to release a photo of their son, but we can only imagine that with that gene pool, he will be a little bundle of talented cuteness. Regardless, we are loving the body positivity…and the scrunchie shout-out! Congrats to the happy couple!
