On Monday a new set of photos surfaced via DailyMail and Backgrid in which for the first time Candice Swanepoel showed us her fantastic post partum body after 12 days of her natural birth at home.
On Wednesday Candice took to Instagram Stories to adress the disgusting comments she saw after that and as well as during her last months of pregnancy with the next words:
“This is me 12 days after having my son. If you have anything bad to say about it… Check yourself. Society can be so cruel to one another… Beauty standars are sometimes impossible for women these days, I’m not ashamed to show my post partum tummy… I am proud actually. I carried my son for 9 months in there, I think I’ve earned the right to have a little tummy, is it because I’m a model? Well, we are normal people too so let me enjoy the beach in peace please.✌”
“I don’t have to hide my stomach because people have unrealistic standars of women. We create life. What can you do? Ladies, we all are in this together, be kind to each other. XC.”
