“It’s so unfair though, because it’s so celebrated,” the pregnant actress said. “It’s like, this is what someone can look like after a baby. I think a woman’s body after having a baby is pretty amazing.”
Lively continued, explaining that new moms shouldn’t feel the pressure to immediately bounce back to their pre-baby body, because they’ve just created life.
“You don’t need to be Victoria’s Secret ready right away because you just did the most incredible miracle that life has to offer,” Lively added. “I mean you gave birth to a human being! So I would really like to see that celebrated.”
