American star actress and super mum, Tia Mowry-Hardrict gave birth to her daughter Cairo in May 2018, and has completely owned her journey to heal and recover.
In a beautiful post she shared on her social media page, the mother-of-two wants to assure new moms that there are more important things to worry about than weight.
According to the 42-year-old award-winning actress, she’s lost 68 pounds since giving birth to her second child in May 2018, and she’s “very proud that I did it my way, and in my time.”
Instead of focusing on her figure, Mowry said, “I enjoyed breast feeding and spending quality time” with her children.
The star noted that there is no reason for any woman to feel that she has to “snap back” to her pre-baby body immediately.
“To all the women who are feeling pressured after birth. Do YOU! Do what makes YOU proud and do it in YOUR time. Not anyone else’s,”

In a place like Hollywood where body goals expectation is an unrealistic feat for the everyday woman, Tia’s post is quite relieving.
Mowry and her husband, actor Cory Hardrict, 40, have two children: Cree, 9, and Cairo, 2. Earlier this month, the actress shared a photo of her kids, gushing in the caption that their relationship “puts the biggest smile on my face and just melts my heart.”
“This is why #motherhood is so rewarding,” she wrote. “Seeing the #love that these two have for each other. It’s so #beautiful to witness.”
