Jade Roper Tolbert Bares Post-Baby Body Just 1 Week After Giving Birth

“Bachelor in Paradise” star Jade Roper Tolbert is celebrating her body after welcoming son Brooks last week.

She bared her belly on Instagram as she cuddled Brooks, and wrote, “Women’s bodies are seriously phenomenal!”

Tolbert went on, “It’s taking my uterus more time to return to its normal state this time around, but honestly I have never loved my body more than I have this postpartum. A lot of you have asked about my recovery, and I received several stitches and am slowly healing physically— the mental and emotional healing is hard to put a finger on, but I am giving myself grace to process everything.”

Brooks came into the world fast. Jade’s water broke and 75 minutes later he was born! The reality star didn’t make it to the hospital in time, and gave birth in her closet.

I accidentally gave birth at home last night, in our master closet. I’ve been still processing the shock of this all, as this was not all at what I had planned, but I am so so thankful for each person who helped bring our son into the world safely. I’ll share my whole birth story soon, but long story short, my waters broke and 75 minutes later I gave birth to our healthy baby boy while clutching a bench in our closet. It was one of the scariest moments of my life because I felt so out of control, but Tanner, Tanner’s mom, my mom and the medics and firefighters kept me going when I felt like the world was caving in on me and my unborn baby. I was going to share the happy, cute Instagrammable pics first, but this felt right to me. So incredibly grateful for the support system we had and for this beautiful boy I get to hold in my arms.

Jade and husband Tanner Tolbert are also the parents of daughter Emerson “Emmy” Avery, who turns 2 in a few weeks.
