No shame in extra post-baby pounds, insists Anne Hathaway
Hollywood star Anne Hathaway has urged mothers not to feel "shame" over their post-pregnancy bodies.
Hathaway, who had her first child five months ago, shared her message on social networking site Instagram in a bid to encourage women to not feel pressured to lose their baby weight.
The Oscar-winning actress (33) wrote: “There is no shame in gaining weight during pregnancy (or ever). There is no shame if it takes longer than you think it will to lose the weight (if you want to lose it at all).”
Her body-confidence message concluded: “Bodies change. Bodies grow. Bodies shrink. It’s all love (don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.) Peace.”
