Singer Jessie J has the best post-baby body message every new mom should hear
After announcing her pregnancy via Instagram in January 2023, singer Jessie J gave birth to her first child in May 2023. Since then, she has regularly shown her little son, whom she has with basketball pro Chanan Safir Colman, in cute photos and videos. However, she can be seen in the most recent picture on her Instagram profile. With a round baby bump – eleven days after the birth of her child. Under the picture she put her song “Queen” in which she sings: “I left my body, I left my skin” – so “I left my body, I left my skin”. A nod to her after-baby body, which she describes in an emotional letter to herself.
Jessie J celebrates her post-baby body with emotional letter
The caption of the Instagram picture is long because it’s not just a small caption, but a whole letter that Jessie J addresses to herself and others. She begins by saying, “I’m writing this for myself, but also for anyone else who needs to read this.” She probably means all new mothers who have experienced the changes in their bodies during pregnancy and after birth. The singer continues:
“Your body was someone else’s home for nine months. Your organs have moved and must now find their way back. Your uterus is still shrinking, your hormones are flying and crashing, your body is working harder than ever. You’re exhausted, but you’re magical. You created a person who is by your side now and loves you beyond measure. Take your time. Be gentle with yourself, your body and your mind. Remind yourself that things are getting better and don’t forget to remind those around you as well. Celebrate your new body.”
The singer goes on to write how the body changes and that both big and small changes are beautiful. She also encourages other mothers not to be influenced by the opinions of others. “It’s 2023, people need to relax!”
Even if it seems to many at first glance that the picture was taken during pregnancy, the singer shows it after the birth of her son. She writes: “This was my body eleven days after birth and I still look almost the same now, 35 days later.” Jessie J ends the letter by saying, “You’re doing great mom,” and we can only echo her!
