Roommate, we recently reported that Parker McKenna Posey is a new mom to a little girl named Harley. The actress kept her pregnancy under wraps and announced this on Instagram back in May. Like most new mothers, Parker has apparently had her moments of resigning herself to her new life. On Thursday, the actress took to Instagram to share details on restoring self-confidence after giving birth.
Parker said she felt unsure about “To be in someone’s goddamn swimsuit. ”She found herself making comparisons with others while“ not feeling ”about herself. Parker also shared that she had only experienced this feeling once in her life. But the moment helped her think about the novelty of parenting.
“This is new for me … then I noticed YES !!! This is all damn new to me, ”Parker wrote in a long caption. “I am a new mother. In a whole new room! A working mother. A bad woman !!!! ”
She went on to talk about learning about herself, and cultivating self-love.
“I need to relearn my body and learn to love this new woman that I have become, ”wrote Parker. “I recently read that self-love is not a destination, it’s a journey !!!!!!”
Parker has posted five photos to accompany the revealing caption. In these photos she is wearing a one-piece swimsuit with multiple prints. She saw her posing in the door of a bathroom. Her hair is styled in long, blonde and dark brown cornrows.
Parker also expressed her gratitude for her body and the journey he was on.
“All I know is that this body NATURALLY gave birth to an 8 1/2 pound baby,” wrote Parker. “I’m grateful for that and grateful for all the shapes and sizes I’ve ever had. !!!! ”
On Friday, Parker posted a follow-up to her first message. The new post apparently targeted people who allegedly criticized the actress for how her body looked in the swimsuit photos.
“There is no way I am fishing for compliments,” wrote Parker. “But more importantly, I NEVER want to hurt anyone while I’m sharing my trip … It doesn’t matter to me how many people tell me how good I look, it matters how I feel about myself.”
Parker also shared that she experiences the love and joy of motherhood every day, but that these feelings don’t stop her from being “Parker first”. She also talked about how the body changes during and after pregnancy.
“… although you may not see through pictures, videos, filters, and boomerangs what I see or understand how I feel … it is MY TRUTH,” Parker wrote. “I am very rarely super open to IG about shit like that. But I wanted to be transparent and let you know that we ALL have uncertainties, no matter what it looks like on IG, no one is perfect or feels perfect 24/7. “
