Pink is not ashamed of her postpartum body, so stop the body-shaming

After being labelled obese by "regular standards," the celebrity mom of two has some Insta-wisdom for new moms: "stay off that scale ladies!"

Pink is not ashamed of her postpartum body, so stop the body-shaming

The singer and mom of two keeps giving us more reasons to love her. She and her husband, Carey Hart, are parents to daughter, Willow Sage—born in June 2011—and just welcomed son, Jameson Moon, in December 2016.

Pink is not one to shy away from publicly calling out her haters, and we love her for it. After giving birth to her son in December, she (naturally) still has some baby weight—so what? She shouldn't have to justify that, should she? Well, she did, and it was in her usual, always-positive Pink fashion.

She shared this awesome photo on Instagram to remind new moms to love their postpartum bodies and to not be concerned with the number on the scale.


We love that even though she hasn't reached her goal weight, she's still feelin' herself—as every new mom should! Even her hashtags are straight-up awesome: #feelingmyself, #strongismygoal and #bodygoals. We should all take a page out of Pink's self-love handbook whenever we're having an "I hate my body" moment.

Besides being ridiculed for microwaving a decaf coffee while pregnant, she's no stranger to public attacks when it comes to being bullied online about her weight. Back in April 2015, she was attacked on Twitter with "concerns" about her body after attending the 30th Annual John Wayne Odyssey Ball in Beverly Hills. Amidst the hate and negativity, she posted a badass comeback about how she was "perfectly happy" with her post-baby body.


When Willow asked why she was so squishy, Pink replied, "Because I'm happy, baby."

Hear that, world? Let's stop shaming ourselves and others about body image and weight.

Keep doing what you're doing, Pink!
