Just today George Clooney and wife Amal welcomed their twins. So why are we already talking about her  post-baby weight loss? It is not a joke!

As much as we may roll our eyes at David Koch we are thankful that this morning when his Sunrise co-hosts, Samantha Armytage and Natalie Barr, joked about Amal Clooney’s post-baby body they were scolded by Kochie, shares Daily Mail.

Samantha, 41, interrupted Angela Cox’s entertainment segment announcing the recent birth of the twins, Ella and Alexander.

‘Come on — I bet she’s already back to her pre-pregnancy weight today,’ she joked.

Nat added, “By lunch time!”

David defended Amal and told the girls they were being ‘nasty’.

‘Now you girls. Give her a break,’ he said ‘You’re being nasty. No, I think she’ll be a lovely mother.’

Natalie insisted to Kochie that the pair were merely kidding around.

‘We’re not being nasty. We were joking!’ she exclaimed.

With the ongoing struggle women face around body image why do we need to make light of it?

ANNE Hathaway actually reminded mums that there is “no shame in gaining weight during pregnancy” — or ever.

Pink recently shared she was proud to be a “normal” mum and that she didn’t rush back into weight loss before the six week mark post baby Jameson.

One mum recently shared an image reminding mums “This is a normal postpartum body”.

‘We give up our bodies to create our children, our bodies change and gain perfect imperfections that we should be celebrating, not shaming.’ said Abagail on her Instagram post.

Whether Amal takes one week or one year to get back to her pre-pregnancy weight is it anyone else business? Hell no! And it is certainly not something we need to be “joking” about, thanks Sunrise!

Do you find this attitude women have towards each other offensive?

  • I wish people would just focus on a beautiful new arrival instead of it always being about weight.

  • No doubt the twins stretched Amal’s skin considerably and it needs time to reduce in size regardless of whether or not she loses weight. I met a Mum who was admitted, weighed before and after the birth of her baby on the same set of scales. She weighted more a few hours after the birth than she did when she arrived at the hospital.

  • Good on Kochie, I’m right there with him. I think she will be a great Mum too

  • I’m so with Kochie on this one. It’s not funny, and it’s not something to be excused by “just kidding around”. To be honest even when it’s intended to be a compliment it’s uncomfortable — I’m two weeks postpartum and whilst I was still in hospital (I was in there for a week, however we’re talking 2-3 days pp), I had midwives commenting to the tune of “did you even HAVE a baby?!” – trying to compliment me, but it just felt so yucky and wrong. My body is not up for debate in any way, shape or form, and neither are any other women’s bodies. What my/our body/ies look like is absolutely nobody else’s concern and it’s high time that other people started realising it!

  • It is not and should not be something to joke about. Im sure ( Sam especially) they would not like anybody joking about their body. Good on Kochi for speaking up.
    Everybody is different and some new mums do have a quick recovery (bodywise) and they definetely should not be bullied because of it just like the mums who struggle to get back into shape shouldn’t.

  • I would not have even thought of post baby body. Anyone focused on body issues is missing the point – delivering a healthy baby/babies is a miraculous and joyous life changing event.

  • Hmmm interesting! I can’t imagine it would have even entered my mind to consider Amal’s weight. I was more caught up in the excitement of the fact she’d just delivered twins – TWO babies. Take it with a grain of salt, but a little surprising really.


    • I am with you – not even a thought about weight. It is just not important in the scheme of things.

  • Really I wish news presenters would stick to the facts and not inject their own personal comments and opinions – your there to report the news, not your take on it, just the facts – get that right and we can all enjoy watching the news rather than what is palmed off as news today! I want the facts and that’s it – not speculation, rumour, humour or anything that is not relevant to the actual news please.

  • It is terribly boring when anyone male or female comments publicly on women and their bodies after having babies. This does need to stop it – the focus should be on healthy babies, mums and families and not on encouraging body type stereotypes.

  • The so called “jokes” of Samantha and Natalie say a lot about themselves. It’s a pity they felt the need to express their comments, not only impacting Amal, their own thought life, but everyone who hears their comments. Such comment can work like a poison (sickening, destroying).

  • Amal will look wonderful no matter what she does – to her family who really care. The supposed ‘joking’ by the Sunrise pair is what makes women feel intimidated in this day and age of social media. Bad taste in my view

  • First George did not give birth to the twins, so it is Amal we should be worried about. As for what Amal looks like that is for her to decide. Just let her enjoy finally having her twins.

  • The Sunrise girls were joking around,they weren’t being nasty!


    • Im sure they would be the first ones on the band wagon if somebody joked about their bodies. Com’on Sam especially should have known better considering the battering she has had in the past about body issues. Good on Kochi

  • I’m more offended that the headline is George Clooney and his wife. She did all the work giving birth, she’s super impressive in her own right, why isn’t the headline Amal and her husband?
