Revealing photos of celebrities in their undies are not unusual but we think Katy Perry has raised the bar by sharing a selfie in her pumping bra and panties just days after she’s given birth.
The 35-year-old’s honest Instagram story shows her standing in front of a mirror wearing a beige nursing bra and some full panties. Her raised tummy, as can be expected, is still very evident.
While the singer might still be reeling from the birth and everything that goes along with getting to know a new baby, she hasn’t lost her quirky sense of humour. Katy credits her hair and makeup to @exhaustion and tags the makers of her pregnancy support wear.
She set the pic to her new song, “Not the End of the World,” featuring the lyrics, “It’s not the end of the world, throw on your fancy attire, fears to the fire, don’t lose hope.”
Katy became a mom last week, announcing the birth of her daughter, Daisy Dove, with British actor Orlando Bloom on social media.
Can we hear three cheers for Katy’s willingness to show the reality of a postpartum body? As we know by now, a baby bump doesn’t disappear magically after birth – it takes time mamas. And you don’t have to be in a hurry to get there.
