Ali Fedotowsky-Manno Reveals Her Real Postpartum Body

Ali Fedotowsky-Manno Reveals Her Real Postpartum Body in ‘Most Vulnerable’ Post

Ali Fedotowsky-Manno welcomed her second child, son Riley Doran, on May 24. The former Bachelorette got real on her social media Monday, showing a series of photos of what the reality star’s postpartum body really looks like. The new mama of two described her post as “her most vulnerable post ever” and fans are applauding the blogger for her honesty.

The 33-year-old mother explained it wasn’t an easy decision to put herself in such a vulnerable light writing, “I’ve gone back-and-forth 1 million times in my head on whether not I wanted to post it. But at the end of the day, I know it’s important to be open and honest about my postpartum body in hopes that it helps even one person out there who is struggling with their own body image.”

“If you swipe to see the second photo in this post, you see that my body has changed,” she added. “My skin around my stomach is very loose and stretched out, I’m 15lbs heavier than I used to be, and my cup size has grown quite significantly.”

Ali Fedotowsky-Manno also used an Instagram story to show her “extra fat” and “loose skin” around her belly while admitting she was “so nervous” to expose her post-baby body writing, “This is what my body really looks like and I am okay with that. I LOVE my body!”

The lifestyle blogger wrote a supporting post to her Instagram post expressing her thanks and gratitude to her supportive following but wanted to clarify that she is just like any new mother struggling to get her body back.

“I’ve gotten so many comments from people on my recent Instagram photos saying that they can’t believe how much I bounced back to my pre-pregnancy body.

Or someone will say something like, ‘I wish I looked that good after having a baby!’ ” she wrote. “And while I appreciate the positive comments, you guys are always so good to me, I keep trying to explain that I’m just good at picking out clothes that flatter my body and hide my tummy.”

“And I’ve tried to assure many of you that I haven’t completely bounced back and that my body has changed – a lot! But as much as I say that, I feel like it’s hard to believe unless I show you guys. I want you all to see me as I really am, and to know that I’m not perfect and I struggle with my postpartum body just like many other women out there do.”

Ali is also a mother to her two-year-old daughter Molly who she shares with her husband Kevin Manno. The former Bachelorette admitted she bounced back quickly after the birth of her daughter but the second time around may not be as easy. “And look, everybody is different. I bounced back pretty quickly after I gave birth to Molly,” she admitted. “But things are different this time and I’m okay with that.”

“I’m learning to love my body and embrace how it’s changed. I hope I get back to my pre-pregnancy shape one day, but that may never happen. And if it doesn’t, that’s okay.”

Brie and husband Daniel Bryan, 37, are already parents to daughter Birdie Joe who just turned 1-year-old. The couple is already making plans to give their little girl a sibling in the near future.

“My husband would love to start trying now for Baby No. 2.,” she admitted. “I’m like, ‘No, there are so many things I wanna do!’ But we said definitely, 2019’s our year to start trying again, which is right around the corner.”

The 34-year-old went on to say, “So I’ll probably be pregnant sooner rather than later.”

In April, the reality star spoke to People and revealed she is feeding Birdie a vegetarian diet. The mother is realistic though, knowing that as her daughter grows up and starts to become curious about different foods she may want to try meat. Brie said if that day comes, she will not pressure her daughter to follow a vegetarian diet.

“The day that Birdie asks me to try meat, I won’t deny it to her. I’ll always let her know the things I believe in and why, but I’ll never push them on her. I was blessed to be raised in a family where they didn’t push a lot of stuff on me.”

Brie added, “I was able to find who I am today and I want Birdie to have that. I’ll educate her on why I live the lifestyle I do, but if she asks for it one day I won’t make her feel bad about it and I’ll let her try it for sure.”

Ellen Pompeo’s Family Goes Vegan

Grey’s Anatomy Leading Lady Ellen Pompeo Puts Her Whole Family on a Vegan Diet

Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo has played one of our most beloved doctors on TV over the past 14-years but the actress is taking advice from her real-life doctor and has switched her entire household into the vegan lifestyle.

Ellen is the latest Hollywood elite that has decided to give veganism a try for not only herself but her entire tribe. Pompeo revealed to People magazine on her deciding factor to what many may think is drastic and she talks about how easy of a transition it has been for the entire family.

“I just went to my yearly appointment a couple of weeks ago and Dr. Kristi Funk told me about her book.” Dr. Funk just released her book Breasts: The Owner’s Manual. Ellen went on to explain, “Since then my whole family has gone completely vegan.”

“Dr. Funk told me she turned her three kids completely vegan and I came home from my appointment with her where she basically gave me the information…and I said, That’s it, we’re all vegan.’”

Ellen, 48, flipped the food script not only for herself but husband Chris Ivery, and her three kiddos Stella, 8, Sienna, 3, and Eli, 1. For most families giving up meat and dairy can seem daunting even unimaginable but the actress said its been a fun and seamless transition on their new road of health.

“It’s super fun. I don’t think it’s tricky at all-it’s actually easier because meat you have to cook it before it goes bad. Grains and lentils and rice and beans, everything’s in the pantry already. You just have to get vegetables, but vegetables stay good for a week and I think we all feel better.”

Ellen brought her eldest daughter Stella to Dr. Funk’s launch party for her book and when asked what food she misses most since changing to the vegan lifestyle the young girl admitted she was “missing bacon,” and had “tried fake bacon today.” She said when asked how her palette enjoyed the vegan version of bacon she replied, “It’s okay.”

But Ellen Pompeo said it’s not just for health reason that she decided to make the jump to veganism, the global issue took a big part in making such a diet commitment. “I think we’re at a critical point for our planet and in the United States, this health issue is out of control, the obesity, the diabetes everything…Sickness is a huge business, I know that really, really well. The message of veganism is not one that they want to get out but not only will it help us, it helps the planet.”

Daphne Oz Shares Selfie of Her Baby Bump

By now almost every fan of The Chew knows that Daphne Oz, 31, is expecting her third child any day now. Daphne Nur Oz and her husband, John Jovanovic, decided to share the latest baby-bump pic, at 38 weeks no less, on Instagram. Though the couple has not yet decided on a name for the newest addition to their family, the baby will join older siblings Philo and John-John as the tiniest member of the trio. Headlines proclaiming that “Daphne Oz shows off 38-week baby bump in selfie” showed up online and in print media early this week.

🍯✨well…we are very close now. 193lbs (so my doctor tells me – i don’t own a scale). definitively not all baby. taking this picture last night, it was just going to be for our family – i have collages of each baby growing in my belly and try to write myself little reminders of what it felt like to know their movements and the excitement of holding them inside me before I got to know the actual people that would emerge. but i decided to share it with all of you because the female body is worth so much more than objectification, scrutiny, comparison, hatred…we do so much in this skin. we all have complex relationships with the history of how we get comfortable living in and owning it. mine has been a long, winding journey forward and back and forward again. and then there are moments like this that are a perfect duality: heavy and light, exhausted and exhilarated, unrecognizable and yet distinctly me (plus someone else). these last few weeks of pregnancy have gone so fast and slow and it got me thinking about a lot. i feel like you guys think these thoughts too. BIG LOVE!!❤️

The 31-year-old commentator, nutrition author and frequent face on TV discussion programs noted “… we are very close now,” after sharing the touching photo with her Instagram followers early this week. Even though her physician logged her weight at 193 pounds, the svelte nutrition guru was quick to add that she and her husband do not have a scale in their home.

The photo was originally intended for “family sharing” only but Oz eventually sent it out to a much wider audience due to her beliefs about combating negative concepts of the female body. Her father, noted TV doctor Mehmet Oz, has a viewership of millions for his daily informational show that touches on virtually all aspects of health and nutrition. Daphne grew up in an atmosphere where eating and nutrition were of key importance in life.

The intrepid media personality already has complete collages of her other two children as they advanced along the growth cycle inside her body, recently noting that she kept a pregnancy diary each time, in which notations were made about how all stages of growth felt and what her impressions were as the child got ready for the big day.

Calling her new family a “party of 5,” the eldest child of Dr. Oz pointed out that she and her husband, John, were delighted to learn of the pregnancy and went on to mention that the new child will be a girl. That means the family of five will consist of two males and three females altogether.

Their daughter Philo is already 3 years old, while John-John is just approaching his second birthday. Philo’s full name is Philomena Bijou and John-John’s is Jovan Jr.

Daphne Oz is a sought-after speaker on topics ranging from healthcare to lifestyle and has already chalked up some major gigs on her resume by appearing at Maria Shriver’s “Governor’s Women’s Conference” and at the prestigious Aspen Institute’s wellness forum in 2009.

In addition to those activities, Oz is the face of non-profit HealthCorps, an organization that helps young people as they struggle with learning about exercise, nutrition, and stress. HealthCorps programs are in place all over the U.S., currently taking place in more than 50 schools.

The happy couple has been married since August of 2010, having met in college at Princeton. After a civil ceremony initially, John and Daphne opted for two religious ceremonies, one of which was in a church and the other in the private home of Daphne’s grandparents.

Princeton grad and best-selling nutrition author, the TV host celeb’s Instagram pic of her 38-week bump went viral the minute it entered the cyberspace stream.
