The wife of cricketer David Warner has taken a swipe at the “unrealistic” and “fake” images posted on Instagram by some high-profile mothers.
The Daily Telegraph reports Candice Warner mum to Ivy Mae, 19 months, and Indi Rae, three months says, while other celebrity mums and mummy bloggers upload pictures in immaculate outfits, “calmly sipping cappuccinos”, cradling their ever-content kids, her uniform was “gym gear”.
“You have days where your kids aren’t great and sometimes you want to lock yourself in the kitchen cupboard,” Warner said.
“But most of the time the girls are really great and I really love being a mum.”
“Flicking through Instagram, you are seeing women who have just had babies and have their abs back, or are back in their size-six bikini within weeks,” Warner said.
“That’s not me. A few weeks post-birth, I am the one still in the size-14 pants with a muffin-top.”
Do you think social media puts more pressure on us to be something we are not?
