Here’s how Solenn Heussaff answered body-shaming
Kapuso star Solenn Heussaff shared her inspiring reaction to those people body-shaming pregnant women and those who just gave birth.
It is known in the showbiz industry that Solenn has one of the most beautiful faces and the figure that has become fitspiration to many women. However, admittedly, she shared that it was not easy for her to go back to her figure after giving birth to her first baby with husband Nico Bolzico.
In her recent vlog, the actress-host shared that she started losing weight 4 months after she gave birth. “So it does take time and I only started healing now, at the 6th month postpartum,” she said.
Unlike before, Solenn said that it was really difficult for her to return to her weight before getting pregnant. “I was stuck at 65 kilos for three months. I could see that I’m losing weight, I’m shrinking, I was getting rid of my water retention but my weight stayed the same way. It made me depressed in a way because I do not understand,” she added.
Because of this, body-shaming entered the scenario. She said that people would say, “Ay maganda ka naman kahit buntis” or “Blooming ka kahit nanganak ka.”
She questioned why other people would say these, “Is that supposed to mean that people that gave birth don’t look good? Or people that just gave birth aren’t supposed to be glowing?”
For Solenn Heussaff, that should not be the case. She explained that women who get pregnant are going through a lot and that include changes their bodies.
However, the actress said that she is not letting these negative comments affect her. She said that she is much happier when she got pregnant.
“What I mean by happier is I care less about the judgment of other people and although I am 4 kilos heavier than I was pre-pregnancy and my hips are 4 inches wider, I am way happier now,” she said.
She also called out to all the mothers to embrace their physical appearances. The Kapuso star stressed that not all women can give birth and just by doing this, it means being powerful in their own way.
