Malin Andersson shared an inspiring post to mark International Women’s Day, opening up about how she feels about her post partum body after she lost her baby.
The former Love Island star sadly lost her first child in January, and she’s since been sharing how she’s coping with grief with her fans on social media.
To mark International Women’s Day, the reality TV star has shared a picture of her post partum body, and spoke about how she’s proud of her C-section scar because it reminds her of little Consy – who passed away a few weeks after she was born seven weeks premature.
Alongside the snap, she wrote: ‘Happy International Woman’s Day.. I’m out here in Dubai, and thought I’d share a pic of my postpartum body with you. Here you can see my loose skin and pouch where my scar is from my emergency c-section. My saggy boobs also which had milk in them!
‘I’m so proud to say my beautiful baby came out of me, and this is what I’m left with. No baby just this beautiful scar to remind me.
‘Every body is beautiful. No matter what you look like. All our body’s have a story to tell.’
Fans of the reality TV star were quick to comment on the post and offer words of support.
One wrote: ‘What an inspiration you are. You are so strong, stronger than you think ❤️’.
Another said: ‘This made me tear up. I can’t begin to imagine what you’ve been through / going through lovely, absolutely adore your positivity, stay strong 💗💙 #womensupportingwomen’.
A third also commented: ‘Totally admire your strength and courage ❤️✨ I’m sure your beautiful angel baby is watching over you 👼🏼.’
Following the death of her baby, Malin also shared more sad news last month when she confirmed that she’d split from her partner.
She told OK! Magazine: ‘A situation like that will either make you or break you and we’ve been at each other’s throats.
‘He deals with things completely differently to me, he bottles everything up and then eventually explodes, whereas I think it’s better to talk about everything. Our relationship wasn’t healthy so I’m taking myself out of it.’
