Actress and new mom Kylie Padilla recently took to Instagram to spread body love and we can't help but rally behind her. Writing a brave and heartfelt message, Kylie addressed those who left body shaming comments on an earlier post: "I really didn't want to make this a big deal because, honestly, it isn't, but I wanted to have my say before I go 'lose this baby weight and be society's definition of sexy' again."
She continued, "I recently experienced some body shaming on my last post at the gym and I didn't really get my feelings hurt but I had this thought, 'People know I just gave birth, right?' Still, comments kept coming in about how fat I was. And guess what: Yes, I am fat. I am overweight. Whatever these things people tell me that is supposed to make me feel guilty or bad. Fine, but the thing is I have never felt so confident, so happy, and so in love with my body. Stretch marks and all."
Kylie was referring to this specific picture she took when she went back to the gym:
In August, Kylie and fiancé Aljur Abrenica welcomed their baby boy, Alas Joaquin Abrenica. But prior to getting pregnant, Kylie revealed she was battling a strong case of body insecurity even while she was in a shape society calls "sexy" or "thin." But now, with her new son and an upcoming wedding, Kylie can't be more confident with her body.
Sorry, bashers. Kylie is as happy as she can be!
