Blake Lively Is Here to Shut Down That 'Post-Baby Body' Talk

Blake Lively has one of the best figures in Hollywood (which is really saying something, because just look at that genetically blessed lot), but she'd really love it if everyone would stop talking up the infamous celebrity "post-baby" bod, including her own.

While promoting The Shallows in Australia (where the shark-infested flick is finally about to premiere), Blake addressed the horrible pressure on women to achieve an unrealistic look after just having given birth.

We've all seen the headlines that hype up an actress's super svelte figure after giving birth, one which has likely required countless gym hours and a strict no-fun diet that we wouldn't wish on our worst enemy. It's both a tremendous amount of stress to put on a celebrity and also a huge burden on women everywhere who see these images being applauded in the media.

In a video interview with Sunrise Australia, Blake said, "It's so unfair. It's so celebrated: 'This is what someone looks like after having a baby.' And I think a woman's body after having a baby is pretty amazing."

Instead the actress would like to see the act of having a baby celebrated, instead of the body type that is being purported as perfect after the fact. Revolutionary!

"You don’t have to be Victoria’s Secret–ready right away," she said. "You've just done this incredible miracle that life has to offer."

We are so with you, Blake. 

"You gave birth to a human being. I would really like to see that celebrated."

PREACH!
