Jenna Fischer may be a celebrity, but that doesn’t mean she’s trying to keep up with her peers in the post-baby slim-down race. The Office actress, mom to 7-month-old son Weston, says it’s time mothers give themselves a break!
“There’s so much pressure on you as a new mom that the last thing you need to have hanging over your head is some expectation of what your body is supposed to look like,” the 38-year-old added. “I actually think that the scrutiny of new mothers bodies has gotten out of control.”
Jenna Fischer continued, “Every new mother just gets a free pass. I’m actually angered by the ‘posing in a bikini six weeks after having my baby’ [trend] … Who cares if our boobs are hanging low and we have a little more junk in the trunk? We created a human being, everybody. Let’s celebrate!”
