Jessie James Decker is keeping it real.
The new mommy of two has recently posted a few post-baby photos that flaunted her enviable body, and upon receiving a number of flattering comments surrounding her figure, the country singer decided to take an honest selfie of her her body following the arrival of her newborn baby boy, Eric Thomas Decker II, to make sure fellow mothers aren’t feeling pressured to lose weight.
“I appreciate all of the sweet comments about how tiny I look after baby! But I don’t want to mislead any mommy’s who just had babies and are stressing! I gained 55 pounds with my daughter and only 27 this time! I gained so much with her because I threw up every day for five months and of course was starving after so I would shove anything in my mouth to make that hunger feeling go away,” the caption began.
The photo showed Jessie lifting up her shirt to show her “pooch” and C-section scar. She continued, “This time I ate very normal and would take occasional walks. I am still 15 pounds away from what I was originally before I got pregnant with Vivianne. I take occasional walks but haven’t done anything yet to try and lose weight and am in no rush! Nursing mamas should def not try and do any severe diets or milk supply will run low! My tummy is still swollen and you can see my c-section scar and pooch! I had another due to my 9lb baby and petite frame.
“So no rushing and no stressing about losing weight! Wanted to make sure y’all saw what my tummy looks like under the tank top and blazer…I do wear a belly waist train thingy a few hours here n there which helps c section mamas and swelling to go down. I am so glad we all can support each other.”
Decker concluded, “Being a mommy is so rewarding but hard work so we need to stick together and help each other out. I’m not perfect but I do my best. That’s what it’s all about. So never be hard on yourself. I’m going to try and do more posts like this. So feel free to ask anything below and will try and incorporate it in another mommy post!”
Jessie and hubby Eric Decker, who are also parents to adorable daughter Vivianne, welcomed their son and second child into the world on Sept. 4.
Since then, the country crooner has been busy sharing tons of photos of the little guy.
From football outfits to “skin time” with daddy to their first family photo, Jessie is obviously enjoying every moment of being a mommy-of-two.
