Desiree Hartsock loves her skin she's in! The Bachelorette alum, who gave birth to her second child, a baby boy, with husband Chris Siegfried four days ago, revealed that she is proud of her body by sharing a postpartum photo on Instagram.
Alongside a mirror selfie of her bare belly, the television personality, 32, wrote on Wednesday, January 16,
I’m not typically one to document or especially share body image pics but the more and more postpartum pics I see from you all — the more empowering I feel the message can be to new moms — or anyone for that matter.
The actress then added that she's "4 days postpartum" looking like "still pregnant" but "feeling like a supermodel warrior".

I’m not typically one to document or especially share body image pics but the more and more postpartum pics I see from you all- the more empowering I feel the message can be to new moms- or anyone for that matter!. So here I am 4 days postpartum looking like I’m still pregnant but feeling like a supermodel/ warrior. Haha. . It is an absolute miracle what our bodies can do to carry and deliver a baby and I’m always so fascinated by the sheer wisdom and nature of it all. The fourth trimester is no joke and it needs to be recognized that a woman’s pregnancy journey doesn’t end when the baby arrives- there’s so much healing and recovery that needs to take place physically and mentally when lack of sleep and roller coaster hormones are at work. Not to mention the post cramping the uterus does to contract back. it’s like labor all over again. . As a society we need to embrace the beauty of the body during this time and not expect a new mom to just ‘bounce’ back like her body didn’t just go through battle. It’s feeling beautiful and courageous in our own skin no matter the stretch marks, extra weight and whatever else is going on. Grace upon grace upon grace .. for ourselves and each other. . Long story short. You’re awesome, your body rocks and you’re beautiful!! #postpartum #pregnancy #selflove
