Former beauty queen Precious Lara Quigaman recently gave birth to her baby second baby boy but some body remarks from her friends and relatives prompted her to share her sentiments about post-pregnancy figure.
In her Instagram account, Lara shared how she got ‘big tummy’ remarks after she gave birth and encouraged moms to embrace their post-pregnancy flaws and changes in their bodies.
She wrote: “1 Month Post Partum or 4 months pregnant?
Just a few days after giving birth, some relatives and friends visited me and asked “Bakit ang laki pa rin ng tyan mo?!”. I know they don’t mean anything bad but people can be so insentive, and all those photos of ‘celebrities and models’ that seems to look so perfect right after giving birth doesn’t help either. I mean, hello I just gave birth, i was cut open and a human being came out of me! Can you just congratulate me?
It was really difficult to post this photo, to show what the world sees as ‘flaws’, but well this is the real deal. My body housed 2 beautiful baby boys and it took 9 months each time to grow them in my belly and I have accepted the fact (trying to by God’s grace) that it will take some time for my body to go back to the way it was (if it does go back) And if it doesn’t, that’s okay too.”
