Pic! Peta Murgatroyd Gets ‘Real’ About Her Post-Baby Body

On Sunday, “Dancing with the Stars” pro dancer Peta Murgatroyd took to Instagram to show off her post-baby body.

Along with the photo, she spoke candidly about the state of her body after giving birth to son Shai with fiancé Maksim Chmerkovskiy, saying, "Real life: I took this photo 8 days post birth. I left the hospital looking 5 months pregnant.”

"Many people think a woman should shrink right back to her pre-birth weight immediately. That is just not the truth for most,” Peta went on. "The female body is incredible and resilient, but healing and strengthening take time.”

Peta revealed that she was working hard to get her pre-baby body back. She added, "Lots of love to all the new mamas out there on the journey.”

Last week, Maks posted a photo of himself holding Shai, gushing about fatherhood. As for why they haven’t posted a photo of Shai, he explained, “I don’t let too many people come see my son and I don’t want to put any of him on social media just yet. @petamurgatroyd and I just want to enjoy our little family, together with our loved ones, and take in all the precious moments which we’ll never get back.”
