Everything Kids

We Love Jenna Dewan Tatum's Classy Response to Mom Shamers

Baby's got back, and she doesn't care what anyone has to say about it.

Oh my god, Becky. Look at her butt!

Jenna Dewan Tatum is catching some serious heat for a recent photo she posted to Instagram. Why? Because in it, the 36-year-old mom—a former dancer who now models for Danskin's Fit for Everything campaign—is rocking a barely-there lace bodysuit that exposes her booty. Her seriously enviable booty—and one that apparently inspired the mom shamers to come out in full force.

"A woman who shows her body this way shows that she needs validation and is looking for attention that isn't given at home," wrote one. "Please wear clothing next time and dress accordingly, and leave for Channing's eyes what belongs to him alone."

"A strong woman, secure in herself wouldn't need to show her butt to the world for compliments," added another. "Especially with a child."

And from a third: "I'm sure your husband is so proud."

Oh, you mean this guy?

Oh shit... Magic Mike Live on the grind... oh shit!

Yes, Jenna is a mom, but she is also a wife and a woman and an athlete who is strong and sexy and happens to have a seriously impressive dancer body.

Why can't she show off the curves she's worked so hard for without being shamed? Whether you've popped out a few kids or not, there is nothing more beautiful than self confidence, and we think that's a pretty inspiring message for a woman to put out there.

And so, by the way, is this quote which Dewan Tatum posted in response to all the racket just a few hours later:

Amen, mama! Haters are always going to hate—it's just a reflection of their own insecurities. But we love that you are teaching your daughter to support other women and be comfortable in her own skin. So keep on rocking that powerful body, girl. Because if we had a set of glutes as killer as yours we wouldn't be wearing pants either!
