Carrie Underwood Shares Photo Without Makeup Showing Her Scar As She Reveals Weight Struggle After Giving Birth
Mama Carrie Underwood is getting real and honest on social media after the birth of her second son, Jacob Bryan.
Carrie took to Instagram where she posted a cute makeup-free selfie after a hectic workout.
The country diva, who gave birth about 10 weeks ago, was not afraid to show off her scar and natural glow without foundation and fake eyelashes.
Carrie captioned the photo: “When your face matches your shirt = you had a good workout! Unless your shirt is blue…then maybe you should be concerned! 😂 (sorry, total mom joke). I took these pics after my gym sesh yesterday (today I’m cleaning this mess of a house, which I totally consider to be my Saturday workout). This is one of my favorite new outfits…I especially love the top because this is basically my motto these days! 💪 Anyway, just wanted to share! Sending out lots of weekend ❤️ to you all! May we all get lots of stuff done and make a little time for ourselves in there, too!”
She also confessed that losing the weight is very hard this time around.
The mom of two said: "I’m going to be honest, “bouncing back” after having Jacob has been much more difficult than after I had Isaiah and I’ve been pretty hard on myself lately. I go into the gym, and I can’t run as fast or as far. I can’t lift as much weight or do as many reps as I could a year ago. I just want to feel like myself again...for my body to feel the way that I know it can. As I was working out today, I realized that for the past 11(ish) months, my body has not belonged to me. It was a perfect home for Jacob. And even now it belongs to him every time he drinks his milk. As I prepare for red carpets and for life on tour, right now I make a promise to myself to start appreciating what my body CAN do and stop focusing on what it can’t. I promise to stop analyzing every angle and every curve and every pound and every meal. I’m going to keep staying the path because it is a journey and as long as I’m always working towards my goals, one day I’ll reach them. I’m going to take it day by day, smile at the girl in the mirror, and work out because I love this body and all it has done and will continue to do! "
One fan told the diva: "So freeing to be “real” ... ppl connect better, you know? We are all God’s children. That’s what’s most important... that we let the inside beauty show.😇"
