Earlier today, I posted a slideshow of 10 celebrity moms who painted a true picture of the experience of pregnancy. I thought it was only fitting to follow up with photos of 10 famous mamas who looked like real women right after giving birth. Often times, women in Hollywood seem perfect, but as you will see in these photos, many of them had to work very hard to get camera ready after delivering their children.
Pregnancy really takes its toll on a woman’s body, and the aftermath is often not what we expected. I actually know quite a few women who packed their regular clothes in their hospital bags thinking that they’d be wearing them home! There are a select few new moms who are lucky enough to drop all of their post-baby pounds right away, but the majority of us still carry extra weight for months after giving birth.
Amy Adams is one celeb mom who was never shy about admitting that she had quite a bit of baby weight to lose. I remember reading an interview with her after she had her daughter, and she said that she really wasn’t concerned with her body at that time. She was more concerned with taking care of her baby, and getting to know her.
Take a look at our slideshow of other celeb moms who looked like real women post-partum. Theses photos are a mixture of brand new moms, like Pink, and moms like Gwen Stefani who look much different now than right after they had their babies!
