<Catherine Giudici Lowe is starting a new trend: reverse pregnancy pictures.

The first-time mom to son Samuel Thomas took to Instagram to show side-by-side photos of her pregnant belly compared to her figure one week after giving birth.

Wearing the same outfit as when she posed nine months pregnant, Lowe stands sideways to the camera to show her shrinking stomach, already well on her way to her pre-baby body.

One Week 😊

The Bachelor winner, 30, and Sean Lowe, 32, welcomed their son on July 2.

“I’m in love with another boy, my son Samuel Thomas Lowe,” the new mom tweeted upon the baby’s arrival.

Samuel Thomas, I think I'm in love🙂

The new dad also surprised his wife with a very shiny push present – a nearly 2-carat rose gold band decorated with over 100 little diamonds created by The Bachelor‘s go-to jeweler, Neil Lane.

“They’re such a fantastic couple and Sean was so excited about becoming a dad,” says Lane. “He thought about this gift for months and it was a wonderful way to honor the continuity of their journey together.”
