“Finally a celebrity who shows imperfections after childbirth”

Halsey has been praised for sharing a photo of their postpartum body on Instagram. The new mum gave birth to her baby boy last month and recently gave fans a glimpse at her life as a mum so far.

Alongside photos of their sweet son Ender, their baby boy’s room, and partner cuddling their son, the Without Me singer shared a snap of her stretch marks.

The mum wrote, “Well….this is what it look like,” alongside the photos.

Fans praised the singer for being real about her post-baby body.

One wrote: “I love love love that you posted ur cute little stretch marks. I’m 31 weeks pregnant and I keep getting paranoid I’ll get them and having to remind myself it doesn’t matter.”

Another said, “Finally a celebrity who shows imperfections after childbirth instead of a perfectly toned body right after. You’re such a badass!!”

“It’s because of people like her, that someday the world will see they aren’t imperfections at all,” another shared.

One mum added, “Thank you for proudly showing your stretch marks, I’m a mum to 4 boys and 4 angel babies And my stretch marks go from just under my boobs all the way to the back on my knees, it is so nice to see someone else with stretch marks when most celebs just airbrush theirs out!”

Halsey gave birth to their son Ender on July 14. The mum shared a beautiful photo of  her cradling their son in a hospital bed to confirm the news.

“Gratitude. For the most “rare” and euphoric birth. Powered by love. Ender Ridley Aydin 7/14/2021,” she announced last month.

Power to Halsey for normalising stretch marks. It’s about time celebrities started spreading positive messages about their bodies. There’s no doubt this will make so many people feel even that little bit better.
