Sharing the inspirational message with her 408k followers, the star started: ‘4 weeks after my boy as vacated his apartment this is what I’m left with n it really isn’t that bad!’

‘I know a lot of women feel anxious about what their postpartum body will look like, but 4 me, this was the least of my worries (I had a poo pregnancy!) I wasn’t worried about what my body was going to look like wen my boy had finished using it to grow.’

The 34-year-old continued: ‘Instead I was intrigued/excited to see the new me.. and I like it! The boobs have finally settled down. After breastfeeding they swelled beyond belief, going from a modest ‘B’ to a never-seen-before ‘F’ (leftie must have been at least a ‘G’).’

‘They were lumpy, absolutely wrecked and my once lil brown nips had trebled in size, I couldn’t wait to see  after all this, what they were going to look like. These r more than ok, I fed a human with them, they r awesome!’

New mum, Jennifer then went on to talk about her ‘squishy tummy’, revealing: ‘Where my flat tummy turned bump once was, I now have a squishy bit of comfort 4 both my boys! Lil man uses it 2 bounce off 2 relieve his wind n Gregs gon from babysitting him in my tummy to holding the ‘squidge’ whilst he sleeps.

‘Arms n legs are wobblier and I’m defo rounder, but I think the extra pounds suit as I get older. With our long morning walks wen daddy goes to work, 4 cappuccinos and toast and all the rocking, (he loves’s rocking) I’m sure they will firm up soon.’

And she wasn’t done there, as the brunette beauty added: ‘I’m still hairy. I swore once I could see IT again I would sort it but these days I have bigger fish 2 fry, so pls don’t judge if u spot a spiders leg or 10! The bum the bums BIIIIG..but the size as actually stretched out the cellulite a bit so every cloud.

‘Everything has healed downstairs and over the next couple wks maybe I’ll have a nose. This does make me slightly anxious.. on it with the pelvic floors. I have lots of friends who are pregnant/new mums. I know their new bodies can make them feel insecure n down.’

The star went on to explain why she had shared such a candid pic alongside her important message, insisting it was important for her followers to see unfiltered images of women’s bodies after birth.

‘I think it’s important we c unfiltered bodies during and after r babies n celebrate them! I’d seeing ow my body adapted to accommodate new life n its truly, beautifully, mind blowing. If u don’t like it,there’s always diets/gym wen u have recovered!

‘So 4now try to enjoy ur perfect changing shell I wanted 2post sooner but my new home (Gregs former bachelor pad) didn’t have a full length mirror.’

And obviously Jen’s thousands of followers couldn’t wait to shower the mum-of-one with praise, with one writing: ‘I love you so real’.

Another said: ‘Fantastic words & so very true xx’

A third agreed: This is amazing! Such a positive post plus you look phenomenal’.

While a fourth added: ‘Best, most realist thing I’ve ever read!!’

Bravo, Jen!
