The Victoria’s Secret model and mother of two shot back at all of the body shamers! Candice Swanepoel welcomed her second addition to the family just last month, and now, the paparazzi photographed her on a beach trip in Brazil.
The point is that after the unflattering pics of her post-pregnancy body surfaced, people had a lot of negative things to say and she is not here for any of that!
To shut them up, Candice posted one of the photos taken of her in a bikini and captioned it: ‘This is me twelve days after having my second son. If you have something bad to say about it…just check yourself. Society can be so very cruel to one another.’
‘Beauty standards are sometimes actually impossible for women these days. I am not ashamed to show my post partum tummy. I’m proud actually…I carried my son for nine months in there. I think I have earned the right to have a little tummy.’
She went on: ‘Is it because I am a model? Well, we’re normal people too, so let me enjoy the beach in peace, please.’
Later she shared yet another pic of her in a bathing suit, this time showing off her baby bump.
‘I do not have to hide my belly just because people have some really unrealistic standards of women. We create life. What can you do? Ladies, we’re all in this together so be kind to each other,’ she wrote.
Candice and her fiance Hermann Nicoli, welcomed baby boy Ariel on June 19 and they also have another son, 1-year-old Anaca.
As you can imagine, Candice is not the first star to clap back at body shamers. In fact, not too long ago, Hilary Duff had a very similar problem and message.
