Pregnancy and giving birth can cause significant changes to a woman’s body, among them weight gain, skin stretching, and hormone fluctuations.

And the body doesn’t just snap back into place like some sort of elastic band after the baby is born, even if there’s enough “inspo” on Instagram to make you believe otherwise.

When you are a new mother who also happens to be famous, expectations around what your body should look like postpartum can be even harder to meet. There are some celebrities, however, who refused to be ashamed of their new bodies.

These 20 celebrities showed what they really looked like after giving birth:
