“The reality of having a baby”


Cara De La Hoyde has shared “the reality of having a baby”, just one day after giving birth.

Cara welcomed her baby girl this week and she has candidly shared what the post partum body looks like. The former Love Island star already shares a son Freddy with husband Nathan Massey.

She had a hard pregnancy, with pre-eclampsia but it all was all worth it as she shared a snap with both her son and daughter. She wrote on Instagram that “She’s here and home. We are both want to say a massive Thank you to all the amazing ladies who looked after us @darent_valley_hospital over the last few days”.

It is amazing that Cara shared the realities of post partum and how not everyone ‘snaps back’. Giving birth takes it toll on your body and Cara recognised this is a post captioned “P.s reality of a new mum 🤣 bleeding, back ache, sore nipples & still looking pregnant 🤰🏻 no one tells you these bits”. Not everyone talks about the nitty gritty and what your body goes through in the early post patum days.

Nathan also took to Instagram to praise Cara, saying that she was a “trooper” and also was in awe of all pregnant women!

We love that Cara has shared her gorgeous body on Instagram, similar to Millie Mackintosh, as it is women with a following that can help normalise the post partum body and promote body positivity.
