Blake Lively Slams Post-Pregnancy Body Ideals
Blake Lively is speaking out to slam the idea that women need to get their bodies back into tip-top shape immediately after giving birth.
The 28-year-old actress, who was interviewed by Australia’s Sunrise at the junket for The Shallows back in June, was praised for her post-pregnancy body seen in the film.
“It’s so unfair though, because it’s so celebrated,” Blake said. “It’s like, this is what someone can look like after a baby. I think a woman’s body after having a baby is pretty amazing.”
“You don’t need to be Victoria’s Secret ready right away because you just did the most incredible miracle that life has to offer. I mean, you gave birth to a human being! So I would really like to see that celebrated,” she added.
