Another Celeb Mama Shows Off Her Post-Birth Bod—and It's Awesome

The mom of two—newborn Rafael was born June 17—

took a selfie showing her post-baby bod mere days after giving birth. Spoiler alert: It probably looks a lot like yours and mine did. She wrote on Instagram that she had been planning on sharing belly shots but wasn't sure whether she'd "have the guts to actually follow through."

Baldwin went on to write, "I hope you understand my intention here: I believe it is important to accept and love our form after going through a bit of battle bringing life into this world. Deep breath, here we go..."

Pretty incredible, right? Of course, this master yogi isn't the only A-list mama who's rocked a post-baby bump. Right after Prince George's birth, mama Kate Middleton made news when she wore a flowy, pooch-friendly dress. Zoe Saldana has been refreshingly candid about her body after twins and her quest to regain her strength and health. And mom of two Kristen Bell famously said of her post-birth figure, "I have a huge muffin top -- who cares?" (Can someone please put this on a bumper sticker?)

Look, it's tough enough to deliver a baby into this world and then take care of him or her. The last thing we moms should have to fret over is whether our bodies are so-called "back to normal." Here's hoping this awesome take-it-or-leave-it attitude sticks around for the long haul.

  1. Quick tip for all you parents all out there: My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>>>SleepBaby .org<<<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! Sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link. >>SleepBaby .org<< Best of luck to you and your family! :)
