Anne Hathaway Shares Empowering Post-Baby Pic All Moms Need to See

Anne Hathaway

It's so refreshing when a new mom keeps it real about everything from breastfeeding to body image. Actress Anne Hathaway shared an amazing, body-positive message on Instagram that proves she's embracing her post-baby body beautifully. The star, who hails from New Jersey, gave birth to her first-born son, Jonathan, in March and isn't obsessing about her new curves. God bless her!


The 33-year-old, who starred in The Princess Diaries, starts her caption with this empowering statement: "There is no shame in gaining weight during pregnancy (or ever)" -- and it just gets better from there. Check it out.

We adore this message: "Bodies change. Bodies grow. Bodies shrink. It's all love (don't let anyone tell you otherwise)." This hashtag is also pretty awesome: #lovewhatyouhavebeengiven.

What a healthy approach to take. Rather than focusing on numbers on a scale or what other people think, Hathaway seems to be paying attention to what really matters, and making peace with the fact that changes may occur but it's not the end of the world. We can't help but think that that hashtag refers not only to her new form, but also to her new baby. So sweet! 

When some celebs spend so much time obsessing about their post-baby weight and share photos of some questionable practices (waist-trainers, we're looking at you), it really sends the wrong message to other new moms who are struggling to stay positive about their new shapes.

In addition to her acting talents, it looks like Hathaway is a first-rate photographer and clothing designer. What a cool picture, right? We also love that she's working with what she's got and recycling these jeans rather than rushing out to buy a whole new wardrobe.

We're sure this message is one plenty of new moms need to hear. Most moms know that feeling confident about their bodies is more attractive than being able to fit into skinny jeans, but it's always nice to have a reminder.
