The Love Island star posed up a storm on Olivia Buckland's hen do

Cara De La Hoyde has been praised by fans for showing her ‘real’ post-baby body on Instagram as she continues to celebrate Olivia Buckland’s hen do in Mykonos.

The Love Island star was hailed ‘awesome’ and ‘real’ for stripping down to her bikini to show her 922K Instagram followers that she’s proud of her body, just six months after giving birth.

Island life 🙏🏼 #buckstobowen

Moments after the 28-year-old posted the smokin’ hot snap, fans went wild over her bikini body.

‘Look at her body so soon after having a baby. I’m hoping I have this luck haha,’ one fan wrote.

Another said: ‘Hi Cara, just stumbled across this post and you are a total inspiration. Thank you for normalising what a woman’s body can look like, that it can change and is beautiful no matter what.’

It’s not the first time the Love Island winner has wanted to re-assure fans that she’s a ‘real’ mum like anyone else.

Back in March she posed in her underwear to share the same message.

Good morning Monday 💕

A third said: ‘This is so refreshing to see a celebrity a few months after giving birth with a normal ‘mom’ body! Beautiful figure.’

Like most mums, Cara – who recently became a mum to her first child, Freddy, with boyfriend Nathan Massey –  was keen to get back into the gym, even if that meant taking little Fred as her trainer’s ‘newest recruit’. Aw!


Back in February, the 25-year-old told fans she had a ‘long way to go’ but was on her way to getting her pre-baby body back.

Alongside a video of her working hard in the gym, she wrote: ‘Ok so here’s me lumps, bumps, backrolls, no makeup post baby body. There’s a long way to go but I’m not giving up iv got @viphq_essex kicking my butt back into shape. Even Fred’s helping me workout. Everyone has to start somewhere.’


Cara and Nathan’s journey into parenthood wasn’t exactly plain-sailing and the pair briefly split last year – just one year after winning Love Island and weeks after she found out she was pregnant.

But, thankfully the couple’s time apart worked wonders and they’re now back together and ‘stronger than ever’. In fact, just last week Nathan – who enjoyed a brief stint on TOWIE – gushed that he felt ‘blessed’ to have his little family.

You guys!
