Peta Murgatroyd became a new mom just two weeks ago — and now she’s getting real about having a post-pregnancy body.
“Real life: I took this photo 8 days post birth. I left the hospital looking 5 months pregnant,” the two-time Dancing With The Stars champ wrote on her Instagram, after welcoming new son Shai with fiance Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
She adds, “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.”
