Candice Swanepoel Fires Back at Haters Criticizing Her Bikini Body 12 Days After Giving Birth

Supermodel Candice Swanepoel gave birth to a baby boy in mid-June and just 12 days later, she hit the beach in Vitoria, Brazil in her bikini.

Now, Candice, 29, has a message to the haters sending negative, body-shaming messages her way.

She posted on her Instagram Story, “This is me 12 days after having my son. If you have something bad to say about it…check yourself. Society can be so cruel to one another. Beauty standards are sometimes impossible for women these days. I’m not ashamed to show my post partum tummy. I am proud actually…I carried my son for 9 months in there. I think I’ve earned the right to have a little tummy.”

Candice continued, “Is it because I’m a model? Well we are normal people too, so let me enjoy the beach in peace please.”

She also added, “I don’t have to hide my stomach just because people have unrealistic standards of women. We create life..what can you do? Ladies we are all in this together be kind to each other.”
