So it seems us Mums have another goal to reach…. don’t just nourish and give all of your attention, love and energy to your newborn, make sure you get your pre-baby body back in 3 weeks. Yes, 3 weeks ladies. At least that is what Katie Price seems to be promoting with the latest image she has posted to her page on YouGossip.
Why is it that every time a celebrity has a baby they (almost) immediately have to post photos of how quickly they got their baby weight off / give us “solid” parenting advice on how to feed and nourish our children / tell us how to manage children’s behaviour / set impossible standards for parenting that only the filthy rich could ever achieve?
Congratulations if you are one of the lucky ones that manage to get baby weight off quickly, I am sure there are plenty of mums out there who are with me in all honesty congratulating these mums – it is brilliant (you lucky things!). But for most of us who have taken a little longer (and longer again for each bub) photos like this make me downright cranky. Cranky that being a celebrity apparently gives you the right to tell everyone else how to parent and how to look after yourself – and yes you can convey that via an image.
This image from Katie Price is clearly just to get back at the women with whom her husband cheated on her with, but is this the right way to do it? It’s extremely public and feels like she is rubbing it in everyone’s face, not just the two women she wanted to get to….
Katie put up this photo with the comment:
After past months of stress and lack of confidence after what them scum women did to me it’s certainly coming back now I’ve had baby!
The Daily Mail reports:
“The 36-year-old glamour model took to her page on YouGossip, a charity-supporting, photo-sharing site, to share incredible images of her stunning post-baby body while also taking the opportunity to slam the former friends who her husband Kieran Hayler cheated on her with during the pregnancy. “
“The reality TV star announced she was divorcing the part-time stripper in May after finding out he had a seven-month affair with her best friend Jane Pountney.
“She then found out he’d also had an affair with another pal, Chrissy Thomas.
“However, Katie has chosen to believe that Kieran is suffering from ‘sex addiction’, which he is currently receiving treatment for, and is trying to repair their marriage.
“She told OK! magazine recently: ‘We’re working on our relationship and taking it day by day.
‘I wanted to focus on having a healthy baby rather than ending another marriage, so I decided that I would have our child and help Kieran through his therapy.’ “
Let’s be real about this, she has NOT forgiven the women that betrayed her if she had to post that image, but she isn’t exactly portraying herself in the best light to every other woman on the planet now is she?
How do you feel about images like this in the media?
