Believe it or not, celebs, like anyone else, are real people. Even (and especially) the moms.

And while some celebrities try to hide their struggles with their postpartum bodies, some are willing to come right out and admit that they, too, are human — and they're completely OK with it.

Here are nine times famous moms got real about their post-baby bodies.


When Pink celebrated her neo-natal normalcy.

Pink, currently with very un-pink hair, posted a photo on Instagram of herself with celebrity trainer Jeanette Jenkins earlier in February celebrating her first workout since giving birth to her son Jameson six weeks earlier — while also celebrating the fact that she hasn't lost a since ounce of baby weight yet.

"Week 6 post baby and I haven't lost ANY WEIGHT YET!!!! Yay me!!!!! I'm normal!" she wrote.


When Blake Lively debunked the "bounce back" myth.

While people gushed over Lively's slim, post-baby figure in her movie "The Shallows," Lively herself reminded fans that her postpartum body isn't typical of a woman who's recently had a baby.

"It took two different trainers and a nutritionist to help me get into that sort of shape because it’s not normal to look like that eight months after having a kid," she told The Sun.


When Chrissy Teigen gave no fucks about her stretch marks.

In January, just nine months after welcoming their daughter Luna, Chrissy Teigen stepped out with her husband John Legend wearing a long dress with a waist-high slit up the side.

The best part? She did nothing to hide her stretch marks in the unretouched photo she posted to Snapchat, simply captioned "Whatevs."


Or that other time Chrissy Teigen made her stretch marks NBD.

Yes, Teigen is quite proud of her tiger stripes and shows them frequently on social media. In August she snapped a pic of her stretch-marked thighs with the caption, "LOL my thighs have tributaries."

We'd be remiss if we didn't say we're not 100%. Here. For. It.


When Kristen Bell literally said "who cares?" to shedding the baby weight.

"Who cares?" told TODAY about getting back her pre-baby body. "I didn't lose my baby weight for over a year," she said. "And when I look down, even now, at the extra skin on my belly, it's a reminder that I've done something spectacular. It's a reminder that I'm a superhero. And I'm proud of it."

What's more important, she said, is knowing her family is "happy and healthy and together; nothing else matters."


When Kerry Washington didn't want her pre-baby body back.

The "Scandal" star told Self in September 2015 that "it's not about going backward in life."

"I've been really focused on not being 'back' to anything, but being the best version of myself right now," she continued. "My body is the site of a miracle now. I don't want to be pre-miracle."


When Olivia Wilde pointed out the benefits of good angles and lighting.

Olivia Wilde has been outspoken about everything from breastfeeding to her body since giving birth to two kids.

As she told Shape after a shoot, "I'm softer than I've ever been, including that unfortunate semester in high school when I simultaneously discovered Krispy Kreme and pot. ... The photos of me in this magazine have been generously constructed to show my best angles, and I assure you, good lighting has been warmly embraced. The truth is, I'm a mother, and I look like one."


When Zoe Saldana said she just wants to be healthy.

"I don’t want to get back to where I used to be," Saldana said in an interview with InStyle. "I want to feel healthy, and not just fit into the old jeans I used to wear."

The mother of twins Bowie and Cy — and just recently, new infant Zen — also noted that while her body is "softer," it's also "stronger" than it was before.


When Kate Winslet put her mind over her body.

The mom of three told Harper's Bazaar UK that she doesn't "do" the whole get-your-body-back thing.

"I so didn’t want to be one of those ‘Oh, wow, she’s back in shape after 12 weeks’ women," she said. "That’s actually impossible."

"I want to keep my health and my sanity and be well fed and happy," Winslet added. "My body will never go back to what it was, and I wouldn’t expect it to after three babies."
