Katie Piper has been praised by fans for uploading a photo of her post-baby body on Instagram. The star says she’s ‘happy and healthy’ as she adjusts to life as a mum-of-two.
In a photo posted to Instagram, the TV presenter is dressed comfortably in a pair of loose-fitting trousers and a white vest top.
‘I posted a throw back picture of me yesterday in one of my favourite floral dresses from @wantthattrend and lots of you commented on what you thought was my post baby body and asked how have I’ve lost so much weight. I wanted to let you know well I haven’t and it was an old picture! This is me today, healthy, tired but very happy,’ she told fans.

‘I’m not dieting at the moment as I am breast feeding. We are faced with so many images each day on Instagram some good some bad and I want my page to be a profile that is enjoyed by lots of different people from all walks of life in a positive way. So this is me and has been since I gave birth and probably will be for while- elasticated PJ bottoms in the daytime- keeping Belle happy by wearing her favourite Aladdin ones – brill Xmas present from my friend Victoria 💖.’
Obviously inspired the shot, hoards of her 629,000 followers expressed their gratitude towards Katie for proudly and honestly revealing her post-baby body.

‘This is the best post….thank you!! I had my baby 9 weeks ago and it’s so easy to get down about ‘baby weight’ especially when looking on social media. You look amazing,’ said one.
Another added: ‘Love this. So many celebs think they are inspiring other by flaunting their flat stomach a few weeks after birth but in fact it just does the opposite. It’s lovely to see someone so honest and looking more beautiful then ever #positivebodyimage.’
The 34-year-old star welcomed her second baby with husband Richard in December and recently revealed that she’d called her Penelope Diane.
Katie and husband Richard Sutton are also parents to a little girl named Belle. The couple are preparing to celebrate Belle’s fourth birthday in March.
