What is it with Hollywood's fascination with post-baby bodies? Anne Hathaway, for one, does not subscribe to the unrealistic expectations placed on new moms to lose weight. Showing off a DIY denim project, she took to her Instagram to write an honest and empowering message about her own experience after giving birth to her son back in April.
"There is no shame in gaining weight during pregnancy (or ever)," she captioned the photo. "There is no shame if it takes longer than you think it will to lose the weight (if you want to lose it at all). There is no shame in finally breaking down and making your own jean shorts because last summer's are just too dang short for this summer's thighs. Bodies change. Bodies grow. Bodies shrink. It's all love." We couldn't agree more—after all, your happiness is all that really matters.
