People think that dad bodies are attractive, but mom bodies are not.
As a society, we have beauty standards for women that are too high, especially for women who have just given birth. Even though a woman’s body needs time to heal after giving birth, many people think that women should be back to their pre-pregnancy bodies in weeks, not months or even years.
Jennifer Garner is proud of her “baby bump” after having three children and being asked if she was expecting her fourth.
Jennifer Garner, who is 50 years old, is known for not showing pictures of her three children with ex-husband Ben Affleck, Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10.
Garner worried before she had her second child if she would be able to love them both the same amount.
In March 2021, she was a guest host on the Happy Mum, Happy Baby podcast. She said that instead of making it harder to love, her heart “spread into two.”
It was easy to decide to have a third child because they loved Violet and Seraphina just as much.
During the episode, the Alias actress also talked about the things people said to her after she had her three kids.
She said, “I can work really hard and be in great shape, but I will always look like a woman who has had three babies.”
In 2014, after giving birth to her third child, Garner went on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to put some rumors to rest.
“I’ve had three kids, and there’s a bump.”
Even though she’s put an end to the rumors and explained that a “baby bump” will always be there, Garner, like many other women, still gets comments about her looks.
“It’s only a corpse. Give thanks for it. You got this far with it. It helped you have babies. What else do you want? “Oh, my!”
She has told other people not to be hard on themselves about how they look.
“I want to look normal, and I want to make looking normal a normal thing. She told Today, “I’ve always felt very strongly about that.”
It’s crazy that we set rules for women and expect them to follow them. I really wish it was “normal” to look however you wanted to. As long as you’re happy, healthy, and not bothering anyone else, why should anyone care?
