DWTS pro, Peta Murgatroyd took to Instagram to get very real about her body changes after giving birth on January 4th to her first son with fellow pro, Maxim Chmerkovskiy.
Real life: I took this photo 8 days post birth. I left the hospital looking 5 months pregnant. Many people think a woman should shrink right back to her pre-birth weight immediately. That is just not the truth for most. The female body is incredible and resilient, but healing and strengthening take time. Now it's time for patience and hard work. Lots of love to all the new mamas out there on the journey. 💪🏼💪🏼 #yesihaveascrunchieinmyhair #shaiiswortheverypound
The two announced their first child on Twitter:

After seeing countless celebrities 'bounce back' just days after giving birth, this is certainly refreshing. Thanks for being so real Peta!
