Kimberly Henderson is taking the internet by storm with her latest Facebook post — and for good reason. The proud mom of four shared an unedited photo flaunting her amazing body — stretch marks and all!
Kimberly Henderson, 27, is a mother or four and she wouldn’t change it for the world — even if her body isn’t perfect because of childbirth. The singer shared a stunning picture of herself in the mirror and all eyes were on her tummy.
Kimberly has had enough of feeling down and out about her post-baby body. She decided to do something amazing not just for herself, but for other mother’s struggling with the same body image issues. She snapped a pic of her tummy and posted it to her Facebook. The photo itself was amazing, but her words were just as important.
Her amazing statement is as followed:
“Everyone always compliments me on how I have such a “perfect” body after 4 kids. I decided to upload this pic and leave my belly “unedited” “unphotoshopped” because I used to struggle with accepting my body after kids. I used to have a six pack before my babies.. And now even though I work out I know its not going to make my loose skin tight.. Or my stretch marks disappear ever lol and I’m ok with that because everyday I get to wake up to 4 beautiful smiling faces and I’m reminded that they are worth this flabby belly and they are worth these stretch marks.
I still wear a bikini because being a mother makes me feel beautiful.. Not having a flat tummy. It took a long time to get there.. Because I struggled so much with my body. I struggled so much because I was young and all these girls my age had perfect bodies and I was in my one piece bathing suit trying to hide all my flaws. And I’m not trying to say I have it worse than anyone else or bad or anything like that just reminding you guys.. That your body is beautiful… BECAUSE we ARE moms and we ARE superheroes and we freakin ROCK and in my opinion that is sexier than any 6 pack!”
Kimberly Wants Moms To Feel Sexy In Their Own Skin
Now that her picture has gone viral, “I’ve always been super insecure about my post-baby body,” Kimberly tells People. “I’m 102 lbs. but my belly’s not flat anymore and it’s never going to be, and I’m okay with that. I posted the picture because a lot of people see me and they’re like, ‘Your body’s so perfect, how’d you have four kids?’ I’m like, ‘If you only knew what’s underneath these clothes!’ “
She went on to say, “I wanted other moms that felt like I did in the past to not worry about it, and embrace it, and just be confident with who you are. Stretch marks and loose skin – that doesn’t matter. I wanted them to be able to say, ‘I have that same stomach, and I can still wear my bikini.’ If you feel confident and beautiful in your skin, then that’s going to be sexy to anybody.”
