Maren Morris Is 'Proud' of Her Post-Baby Body and Refuses to 'Snap Back'
Maren Morris snarled at the social pressure to "snap back" to the body she had before giving birth to her son on Friday, April 2.
The singer of "The Bones" shared two photos on social media: one of her lounging on her bed in a nude-colored bra and underwear pair, and another of her changing into gym clothes before working out in the kitchen.
Morris wrote in the caption, "I'm never saying 'trying to get my body back' again." "It wasn't taken, and I didn't misplace it like a set of keys. The burden we put on mothers to "snap back" is insurmountable and profoundly distressing. You've always been an f—-ing bada—, and I'm proud of you."
Ruby Amanfu, a Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter, commented underneath Morris' message, "Inform. Them. Those unreasonable attitudes must SNAP BACK into place. A GODDESS is a GODDESS is a GODDESS is a GODDESS is a GODDESS #LessonNumber1 is the first of a series of lessons."
On May 23, 2020, the 30-year-old country singer and her husband, Ryan Hurd, welcomed their first child. Morris has long advocated for pregnant women and mothers to love and embrace their bodies, especially when she performed at the Houston Rodeo while nine months pregnant last March. The "GIRL" singer posted another workout photo on her Instagram Story when she was eight months pregnant and got down to some "real chat."
"I'm nearing the end of my pregnancy and have been working out with @erinoprea and eating pretty clean the entire time. I'm 5'1 and 40 pounds heavier, so I wouldn't change a thing "she penned "I've loved being pregnant, even with the lower back pain and my anemia-prone BS."
In an interview with CBS This Morning in September, the singer discussed her struggle with postpartum depression four months after giving birth. "I'm almost out of the tunnel now," she said. "You're trying to be a good mother and father and do something right, but you feel like you're failing on every stage."
