Casey Batchelor has hit back at one of her followers who asked if she's 'still pregnant', after she posted a bikini picture on social media.
The mum welcomed her first child less than two months ago, and she’s understandably adjusting to her new life as a mum.
After going away on a sunny break, the new parent shared a picture of herself in a bikini, something she debated but decided to go ahead to show her ‘post pregnancy mum bod’.
Alongside the snap, she wrote: ‘Had a lovely time last week away with this one @samdowlertime Was debating if I should post this pic or not but thought why the hell not! Rocking the post pregnancy mum bod! 🙌😂👶🏻 #postpregnancy #dontcare #mumlife #postpregnancybody #newmom #6weekspostpartum’.
But while many of her followers commented on the snap to gush about gorgeous the new mum looks, some decided it was a good idea to ask her if she’s still pregnant.
One wrote: ‘Is there any need for this. I am trying to eat my dinner here!!!! Are you sure you don’t have another baby in there?’
Casey did not hold back however, and hit back at the nasty commented by saying: ‘When people comment are you still pregnant??!! Morons!!
‘This is what my 6 weeks post pregnancy body looks like! Or could be the Spag Bol I had for dinner!’
Many of Casey’s followers also defended the mum and praised her for showing what real postpartum bodies look like.
One said: ‘You still look amazing Casey ❤️ you will be giving body confidence to all post baby body Mummas out there!’
Another wrote: ‘I think you are amazing posting this pic. I was exactly the same! Thank you Casey for keeping things real! We honestly need more of this on social media!!’
A third added: ‘You look amazing! Finally a picture many mum’s can relate too!! I had my third 3 months ago and have had a few comments as to why my belly hasn’t gone down 🤔 I know it takes time but many people think you just bounce back, so posting a real picture like this is great 👍 congratulations on the birth of your beautiful baby girl 💖’.
Casey announced she gave birth to her first child at the end of May, by posting a cute snap of her holding her baby’s tiny hand.
She wrote alongside the picture at the time: ‘I haven’t been on social media as I’ve been slightly busy the past few days. We have finally welcomed our beautiful baby.
‘I’m going to take some time out to enjoy and cherish these precious new born moments. But wanted to let you all know as I’ve been having lots of messages. I’ll update you with details and with beautiful pictures soon 💛👶🏻💛’.
