Keke Palmer spoke candidly about the pressure new moms, especially celebrity moms, face to lose weight.
Palmer, 29, spoke with People’s Daniela Avila in a new interview as part of the Beautiful Issue of the magazine.
The couple discussed the “recovery” culture, where new moms are faced with pressure to lose weight or look like they did before getting pregnant immediately after giving birth.
She advised moms to do what makes them “feel good” instead of focusing on how they look.
“I think for me the most important thing I would say to any new mom is to do what you can when you can, whatever makes you feel good,” Palmer said, adding that she exercised when she felt up to it. , but she rested when she needed it after becoming a mother.
But Palmer also cautioned people against looking to celebrities as role models for how they should approach post-pregnancy weight loss.
“Any time you see a celebrity snap back or something, it’s part of the fucking concert,” Palmer told Avila. “Part of our job is to look good and look good.”
“So don’t think it’s like, ‘We do it because we have it that way.’ No, the job is at stake,” he continued. “If we want the checks to get signed, we have to be what we have to be.”
