Jessie James Decker on Sharing Postpartum Pics: I Wanted to Show What a ‘Real Body Looks Like’

11/13/2015 at 01:30 PM ET

Jessie James Decker is keeping it real.

The singer-songwriter has always been open with her fans on social media — especially when it comes to motherhood.

From posting breastfeeding pics with her newborn son Eric Thomas Decker II to sharing her postpartum pooch on Instagram, the “Lights Down Low” crooner has regularly offered an unedited lens into the world of stretch marks and c-section scars from her point of view.

“I am so glad that I was able to show mommies what a real body looks like after baby,” James Decker, 27, tells PEOPLE exclusively of her decision to post candid shots on social media. “I have my scar and pooch, and 90 percent of the time I look a mess!”

Glory Johnson Shows Off Her Stomach Days After C-Section: ‘Let’s See If I Can Bounce Back’

10/22/2015 at 12:00 PM ET

Glory Johnson is already working on getting back into her pre-baby shape — just days after giving birth to twins via c-section.

The WNBA star posted a photo of her stomach on Instagram Thursday morning, 10 days after welcoming her daughters.

“Let’s see if I can bounce back,” she wrote. “#CantLiftForSixWeeks #FingersCrossed #CravingAGoodWorkout … Who’s with me?”

But Johnson’s primary focus is on her baby girls: Ava Simone and Solei Diem were born Oct, 12, much earlier than their February due date. They were each 1 lb. 7 oz. at birth, and in an Instagram post about their births, the 25-year-old Tulsa Shock player wrote, “Born a little earlier than expected, I have no worries because these babies are fighters just like I am.”

Tamera Mowry-Housley Begins Her Post-Baby Fitness Journey: ‘It’s D Day’

10/20/2015 at 01:15 PM ET

Tamera Mowry-Housley is ready to kick it into high gear.

The talk show host shared a selfie Monday on Instagram, commemorating day one of getting back to her pre-baby figure.

“Fat be gone … this momma’s about to get it,” Mowry-Housley, 37, wrote. “I always allow myself three months to heal after a c-section. It allows me enough time to focus on being a new momma again and my baby. Additionally, to allow a steady milk flow for my baby.”

She continues, “Once those are established. It’s time to start working out. It’s D day. Here we go!”

Jessie James Decker Shows Off Postpartum Pooch: ‘I’m Not Perfect’

10/15/2015 at 06:15 PM ET

Six week after welcoming her second child, Jessie James Decker looked like she had completely bounced back and shed the pregnancy pounds.

After her followers were quick to take notice of her svelte shape in an Instagram photo showing the new mom of two all dressed up for date night, the country star returned to social media to clear up any misconceptions.

“I appreciate all of the sweet comments about how tiny I look after baby! But I don’t want to mislead any momm[ies] who just had babies and are stressing,” James Decker, 27, writes alongside a picture of her tummy.

Carrie Underwood on Conquering Her Body Issues and Loving Her Post-Baby Figure

10/14/2015 at 12:00 PM ET

Country star (and new mom!) Carrie Underwood opens up about body issues, breast-feeding struggles, and how she makes her marriage work. Subscribe now for exclusive family photos and an inside look into how she’s adjusting to motherhood, only in PEOPLE!

It’s been 10 years since Carrie Underwood won American Idol — and the singer admits that back then, she wasn’t always happy with how she looked.

“I knew that I weighed more than I had ever weighed before,” she tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story.

“But then as soon as you start making little tweaks, people immediately go, ‘You look so great!’ Then you start wondering, ‘How bad did I look before?’ Then it’s like, ‘Well, I guess I should keep on going.’ Then you start eating less.”

Underwood, 32, admits that she turned to weight-loss supplements to slim down.

“I was taking things with ephedra in it,” she says. “It wasn’t the best way. If I could go back and talk to myself I’d be like, ‘Here’s how you do it the right way.’ ”

Asked if she ever had a problem, she answers, “No, because none of it was intentional, you know? I wasn’t eating enough calories, but it wasn’t because I was trying to starve myself. I just didn’t know how many calories I should be eating.”

New Mama! Carey Mulligan Walks the Red Carpet After Welcoming Daughter

10/09/2015 at 01:15 PM ET

Make way for new mama Carey Mulligan!

The actress stepped out for the London premiere of her new film, Suffragette, on Wednesday, hours after it was revealed she and husband Marcus Mumford had welcomed a “healthy and happy baby.”

For her walk down the red carpet, Mulligan, 30, opted for a ruffled mauve-colored dress by Chanel Couture. She paired the frock with simple black stilettos and minimal makeup.

“She is just enjoying this time with her family and close friends,” a source told E! News of the first-time mom’s new life.

The Mumford & Sons’ frontman, 28, and Mulligan had yet to comment on the birth of their first child, but confirmed late Friday that the newborn is a girl born in September.

Robyn Lawley on Body After Baby: I Want to Teach My Daughter ‘Strong Is the New Sexy’

09/30/2015 at 06:00 PM ET

Robyn Lawley gave birth to her daughter Ripley Dorothy seven months ago, but instead of using a diet to get her post-baby body back, she’s staying focused on her health.

“I don’t believe in restricting myself. I believe in eating wholesome foods and good quality foods,” the 26-year-old model tells PEOPLE. “I generally eat what I want, when I want, but I keep it in moderation.”

The first plus-size model to get her own page in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue also believes in making exercise like kickboxing and hiking a priority.
