Mariah CareyNew twinner mama Mariah Carey finally stepped out to "debut" (whether she wanted to or not) her post-babies body to the celeb-crazed world just two months after the birth of her twins, Moroccan and Monroe, who were born on April 30. Doesn't she look great? And let's be honest -- did we really think she wouldn't?
She's doing everything right with this casual look. Wearing big shades to cover her sleep-deprived eyes and a form-fitting black sweat suit. After all, it's a mistake to wear big baggy clothes postpartum. It only makes you look bigger than you already feel.
After seeing all the shots of Mariah, all I can say is thank god I'm not a celebrity -- "debuting" your postpartum figure for the first time isn't easy for us "invisible" moms. Can you imagine if you were a celebrity, albeit one who's known for her sexy bod?
These snapshots of Mariah Carey were taken outside of her Manhattan apartment building, and they're the first we've seen of the new mom. To us, she looks lovely and perfectly slimmed down, but if Carey's like any other new mom I know, she's still getting used to her post-baby body.
Don't get me wrong. Our bodies after babies are not bad (well, except for those early weeks when your squishy gut and milk-filled breasts take up an extra seat, which they fall into on their very own). However, they sure are different. Even when I got back down to my pre-pregnancy weight at least 10 months after both my boys were born, things didn't sit the same on my frame. I was, let's say, wonderfully remodeled. And let me also say I didn't feel that positive about it on most days either. It's a big transition atop becoming a mom and all the new feelings and emotions that brings.
Anyway, I give Ms. Carey some credit for being brave amid what's likely to be a lot of commentary on her new figure. While she's unlucky to have to live out this transition in the public eye, she's lucky she looks so fit and fabulous. Her celebrity status may bring scrutiny, but it also brings personal trainers.
Did you have a hard time adjusting to your post-baby body?
