Jessie James Decker Shares Post-Partum Belly Pic: ‘Be Proud, Don’t Stress’
Jessie James Decker has never been shy about sharing the realities of pregnancy with fans, and now she's dishing out another dose of truth in a new Instagram post.
Decker gave birth to her and husband Eric Decker's third child, Forrest, on March 31. As she reflects on the few weeks since delivering her baby, she offers an honest look at what her postpartum belly looks like. She admit that while the road to recovery is a tough one, she's still thankful for the experience.
"Keepin it real! 3 weeks post and I’m still very swollen. The 3rd has been by far the hardest recovery, but I’m feeling stronger every day," she shares with an accompanying photo that shows off her post-pregnancy stomach. "I’ve updated you all throughout my entire pregnancy and how much my tummy/baby were growing monthly so I felt like I should share where I’m at post baby. It sure is incredible what the body can do and I’m so grateful!"
She encourages new moms to not stress so much about what their body looks like and focus more on the special moments that come with parenthood and having a baby to create lifelong memories with.
"Remember what our bodies just went through for 9 months and be proud," she comforts.
Oh, and she has a helpful mom tip: Coffee will be your best friend for all those sleepless nights!
The Eric & Jessie star isn't afraid to tackle any hurdles regarding pregnancy. She filmed the empowering video for her song "Flip My Hair" while six months pregnant, dancing alongside a team of fellow expectant moms.
"I’ve never felt sexier or more confident than I did during this music video shoot," she proclaimed in an Instagram post. "I wanted to showcase that no matter where you are at in your life, shape, or size you can exude that confidence and sexuality in your womanhood!"
