Mina Starsiak Hawk Keeps it Real in a Postpartum Diaper

The Good Bones star shared a very candid snap of her post-C-section situation five days after welcoming Charlie Drew, as a way of encouraging all new moms to take it easy on themselves and not rush to look a certain way after welcoming a baby. 

“Next time you wish you looked like this or dressed like that, or had it ALL together like so many of the influencers we follow, just remember … you’re only being shown what they want you to see; part of them for sure, but usually not the whole story,” she wrote on an Instagram post comparing her “sucked in” stomach to one in the hospital-issued undies. “So be kind to yourselves and to those you might be quick to judge based solely on social media. My Monday soap box moment 😂 Hope it helps at least a couple of you feel good this Monday!!!”

Ashley Graham’s Mid-Shopping Diaper Change 

When your baby’s gotta go, there’s no stopping them! Ashley Graham had to improvise when her newborn son, Isaac Menelik Giovanni, had a “diaper blow up” while she was shopping at Staples. 

In the candid photo, the model is crouching on the ground, changing her son’s diaper in the middle of the store’s stationery aisle.

Hey, a mom’s gotta do what a mom’s gotta do!

Ali Fedotowsky-Manno Shares Her ‘Riley Pooped In the Pool’ Story

When your kid is constipated, you celebrate when he finally poops — unless he does it in the hotel pool during your family vacation. That’s what happened to the Bachelorette alum, who shared details on her Instagram Story in Feb. 2020.

“So, Riley pooped and I’m so mortified at what went down when he finally pooped that I don’t think I’m ready to share — or will ever be able to share — but I’m just letting you guys all know it happened,” she said in a video, after sharing hours before that her one-year-old hadn’t pooped in three days.

“You all guessed that Riley pooped in the pool. That’s the truth,” she confirmed in another clip. “He pooped in the pool. They had to shut the pool down for like an hour-and-a-half.”

She continued, “It was super embarrassing, so that’s Riley’s poop story.”

Fedotowsky-Manno went on to explain to followers that she had tried to prevent the accident by having Riley wear a water-resistant nappy in the pool. Unfortunately, she said, he had “runny as F poops and it all leaked out of his swim diaper.”

However, the incident didn’t put a damper on her day.

“Anyway, today was awesome. We had the best day,” she told fans in another video. “The kids had so much fun. I still don’t have a voice, but I don’t care. I had the best time and we’re really happy.”

Olivia Wilde’s Early-Rising Toddler Has Her Considering Drastic Measures

Parenthood has a way of making you ask yourself the questions you always thought you knew the answer to, as Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis have discovered recently.

“When your 3 yr old becomes an (early morning) photographer and you wonder if it’s “bad” to put a industrial level padlock on your bedroom door,” she captioned this sleepy (and somewhat annoyed) snapshot taken by daughter Daisy.

The actress is never afraid to keep it real about her parenting hits and misses, as she shows in this snap of her wearing a robe, slippers and wet hair to school drop off – but hey, at least her daughter “barely made the bus on time” while her mother “kept it classy.”

Meghan King Edmonds Compares Instagram vs Reality

The beauty of social media is that you can perfectly curate photos of a seemingly fabulous life — except, most of what you see is not at all close to what it’s really like. That’s what Edmonds tried to explain in her latest Instagram post.

“Instagram ➡️ Reality (swipe left),” she began her note, directing her followers to look at her “Instagram” version of motherhood, a beautiful shot of her and her twin boys Hart and Hayes, and then her “Reality” version, the same shot, except her facial expression shows shock and horror.

“The reality is that I wish my life was closer to the feeling I get when I see this beautiful photo with my twins… but it’s not: my life is summed up by the look of fright in the next photo 😂,” she added.

Amy Schumer’s Postpartum Glamour Shots

Bringing a baby into the world is a beautiful thing. The aftermath? Maybe slightly less glamorous, as the comedian makes clear in this shot from the hospital room where she welcomed son Gene captioned “Milf alert 1 o’clock”.

Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi’s Workout Woes

The Jersey Shore alumna opened up about the tribulations of being a mother, sharing an exercise video on her Instagram Story with the caption “Giving Birth PROBLEMS.”

While filming herself riding on her Peloton bike at home, Polizzi — who shares daughter Giovanna Marie, 5, and sons Lorenzo Dominic, 7 and Angelo James, 7 months, with husband Jionni LaValle — asked her 13.1 million followers, “Do any other moms pee on the Peloton?”

“It’s not on purpose,” she quipped. “You’re just like, ‘Whoa!'”

11 of 45


This mama’s definitely got her hands full. “Every single time I get out of the car. How? Why?” the actress joked of her haul, which included a hat, an iced coffee, a waterbottle, books, notebooks, homework, her phone and her keys. She added the hashtags “not staged” and “I’ve got it.”

And Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi’s Third-Child Improvisation

Ask any mom of multiple kids: The first child gets weekly staged photoshoots with specially-designed chalkboards and excellent lighting. The second child gets an official monthly check-in, give or take a few days. The third child (that would be Polizzi’s son Angelo) gets a Post-It note to help jog your memory when you go through your camera roll later.

Talk about being on mom duty (no pun intended)! The Little People, Big World star shared this snap of son Jackson for “all those mamas out there that sometime[s] feel like they are sinking.” She captioned the shot with a detailed recount of her day — which started with hosing husband Zach Roloff’s vomit off the porch after he woke up sick, and ended with finding their son (and his crib) covered in poop. And it didn’t stop there — since they had no hot water in their house that day, Tori had to drive him to another house to get him cleaned up. “If you were having a rough day I hope this helps. I can laugh now that Jackson is asleep in a throughly scrubbed crib,” she wrote.

The Lip Sync Battle star did her bit to show the reality of being a new mom by sharing a photo of herself just four days after giving birth to son Miles Theodore, her second child with husband John Legend.

In the picture, the model is dressed in postpartum mesh underwear, which she hilariously called “Asian pear underwear” — a reference to fellow mom Ali Wong‘s Netflix special, Hard Knock Wife. And she was even holding a carefully wrapped pear!

A far cry from her What to Expect When You’re Expecting character who somehow inherited a glowing complexion and superhuman energy with her pregnancy, Decker (whose husband is athlete Andy Roddick) took to Instagram to show off her skin blemishes — a direct result of pregnancy hormones, she says — which she sarcastically called “effin awesome.”

38 of 45


Dressed up and ready to take on the day, the model-actress headed to a private room to pump (and snap a selfie!) before returning to a press event for her company, Finery. “Yes I am in a back room pumping as they talk outside,” wrote Decker. “Yes this sucks. But YES this is why it’s awesome to be a part of a female founded, female-run startup.”

Getting the perfect Santa photo is often a Christmas miracle and something parents everywhere struggle to achieve — the fitness guru (and mom-of-four!) included. “This is us… Rafa: hates Santa,” Hilaria, who’s married to actor Alec Baldwin, wrote in the caption. “Carmen: asked for a magic carpet. Leo is like: whatever…as long as food is involved in this experience. Alec: the forever photogenic celebrity, And me: trying to avoid traumatizing my 2 year old and GETTING MY OBLIGATORY SANTA PHOTO…while sacrificing any attempt at a decent pose.”

“… I love every bit of my postpartum bod,” wrote Otis with this Instagram pic of herself posing in a white tank top and matching “hospital undies” three days after the birth of daughter Henley Grace, whom she shares with husband Doug Hehner.

She continued: “It’s truly amazing how my body helped create & carry an 8 lb 2 oz baby … I’m feelin’ like I can conquer the WORLD after pushing her out. Women are SO much stronger than we give ourselves credit for.”

43 of 45


Spending the day with daughter Everly proved to be quite artistic for Dewan and ex Channing Tatum’s only child, who very creatively painted the World of Dance star’s face.

Those who send photos more often during the coronavirus pandemic may be at higher risk of depression

The COVID-19 pandemic has rewritten social media usage habits: People spend more time on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube, and more often, they post pictures and videos of themselves and their loved ones. However, all of this can lead to an increased risk of depression, according to a recent study.

“In order to get a snapshot of the change in social media usage patterns and its mental health implications, we examined the responses of 170 participants using a 20-question online questionnaire during the peak period of the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic in Hungary. The data collection took place between 22 April and 11 May 2020, during the strict lockdown measures, so that the participants could perceive the changes more realistically compared to the pre-epidemic period,” said communication and media expert Alexandra Valéria Sándor, a Ph.D. student at the Doctoral School of Sociology of Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest.

The popularity of social media platforms is shown by the fact that all the respondents were Facebook and Messenger users, followed by YouTube (76%) and Instagram (59%). When asked how their own time spent on social media changed during the pandemic, 19% of respondents said it “greatly increased” and 36% said it “somewhat increased.” As one respondent put it in an open question about changes due to COVID-19, “I had no choice but to use social media much more often because my child’s school requires teachers to keep in touch with parents through Facebook groups.” Another user stressed that they engage in “one hour of video chat every day with family and friends. I haven’t done this before.”

The study also revealed that the participants perceived the change in their own habits significantly differently from what they experienced in their environment during the lockdown period. 42% thought that others’ social media activity had “greatly increased,” and 46% said it had “increased somewhat.” There was a 36% rate of those who said their own social media activity “didn’t change,” while only 6% perceived others as unchanged.

The time spent using social media also increased significantly among participants during the restrictive measures during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. The most significant change was observed for Facebook: The most common response was that the participants spent “more than two hours” per day there, compared to only 9% before the epidemic.

To monitor the intensity of self-representation, respondents also stated the frequency with which they posted or sent pictures and videos of themselves or their loved ones (including their pets) on each social media platform before and during the lockdown. Nearly 18% of them shared such content on Messenger multiple times a day, while 8% said they had done the same before the epidemic.

In terms of self-representation, selfies were the most common on all the platforms examined, but interestingly, users also posted photographs and videos taken in the company of others and on trips. The latter may be explained by the answer of one of the respondents to the related open question who said that they share nice memories during the lockdown.

To obtain a basic assessment of the mental health of participants, the Patient Health Questionnaire-2 (PHQ-2) was administered through the question “Over the last two weeks, how often have you been bothered by the following problems?” These problems included “little interest or pleasure in doing things” and “feeling down, depressed or hopeless.” The possible responses were “not at all” (0 points), “several days” (1 point), “more than half the days” (2 points), and “nearly every day” (3 points). Final PHQ-2 scores ranged from 0-6. A score of at least 3 indicates the possibility of major depressive disorder and suggests that further examinations are necessary; 16% of participants scored a 3 or higher. However, the likelihood of major depression was higher (19%) among those who shared photos of themselves or their close relations “multiple times a day” or “daily” on Messenger, the platform where the frequency of photo sharing increased the most.

“The results show that during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, the use of social media has increased, which has also made the sharing of self-representative content more common. The responses also suggest that there may be a link between mental health and the increase in social media usage, which is certainly worth examining in the future with a larger sample. The most important thing was to be able to shed light on the changes in the use of social media for self-representation, their nature, and possible mental hygiene consequences, even with the methodological challenges and time constraints of the pandemic,” concluded Alexandra Valéria Sándor.

A post shared by Marissa Jaret Winokur (@marissajaretwinokur) on

The Broadway star has lost nearly 50 pounds since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.

In a lengthy Instagram post, Winokur shared that she embarked on her current weight loss journey partly because she is “high risk” when it comes to contracting the coronavirus, but also because it gave her “something to focus on” amid the lockdown.

“If you have been following my [stories] you know how hard I have been working out with Keith Anthony to get healthy. Truth Covid scares me. I checked off all the boxes, I am HIGH RISK !” she began the post, alongside several photos showing her transformation.

Winokur continued, “So I started working out at home with Keith via zoom classes and eating healthy to have a fighting chance. In all honestly I also needed something to focus on have a goal . 6 months later I have lost almost 50 pounds. We have been here before. I was scared to post photos, it’s really one day at a time for me when it comes to food. But I thought, Covid isn’t over we are all sitting ducks maybe I could inspire someone ANYONE to chose to fight!”

She added that the results of her fitness journey have been tangible, sharing that she hasn’t “had asthma in months.” Working out has also helped alleviate her anxiety, she said.

She also told Yahoo Canada Lifestyle, “Stephen and I have been riding bikes outside together which has been really nice, or try and time our workouts together. It’s kind of like summer camp with Stephen and I both home, so we try and keep the kids active.”

The caption continued, “I’ll be honest with you guys — with my ‘Year of Health’ mission I’m trying to get to 75kg’s and career wise am trying to get one of my movies into production before the end of the year! Both of these things are requiring a daily effort and there’s constant setbacks — but I’m working hard x.”

Bump Up the Jam! These Celebs Showed Off Their Baby Bumps in Music Videos

Moms really can do it all.

On Thursday, a pregnant Nicki Minaj posted a video on Instagram where she is seen effortlessly rapping along to her latest single, "Move Ya Hips," her just-released collaboration with A$AP Ferg and MadeinTYO. Minaj announced on July 20 that she and husband Kenneth Petty are expecting their first child together, alongside a set of glam snapshots baring her baby bump.

Because celebrity moms are no strangers to putting in work while — no big deal — nurturing and growing another human life, here are nine other singers and performers who gave multi-tasking a new meaning and showed off their baby bumps while showing off their skills.

Katy Perry

The singer revealed that she is expecting her first child with fiancé Orlando Bloom when she debuted her growing baby bump in the music video for her song "Never Worn White."

Carrie Underwood

In 2018 the country music singer revealed her baby bump in the music video for "Love Wins," showing it off in a flowing orange dress while singing in an open field. The star had just announced that she was expecting her second child with husband Mike Fisher.


The singer, who was expecting her daughter Willow at the time, cradled her baby bump in the music video for "Perfect," which made the already emotional song even more heartfelt.


We love a supportive big sister! Beyoncé made sure to include her sister Solange, then pregnant with son Julez, in the music video for "Soldier," when the group sang the lyric "known to carry big things if ya know what I mean."


After revealing that she was pregnant while performing at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, Beyoncé included her bump in the music video for "Countdown," pointing to her stomach while singing "I'm tryna make us three from that two." The singer gave birth to her first child with husband Jay-Z, baby girl Blue Ivy Carter, on Jan. 7, 2012.

Cardi B

The rapper revealed that she was expecting her first child with her husband, Migos rapper Offset, while performing live on Saturday Night Live in 2018. The couple welcomed their daughter, Kulture Kiari in July of that year.

Jessie James Decker

The country music star released the video for her song “Flip My Hair” in January 2018, in which she performed an impressive dance routine – while six months pregnant with her third child!

Natalie Portman

In 2017, a very pregnant Natalie Portman starred in the music video for James Blake's "My Willing Heart." And when we say "very pregnant," we mean literally days away from giving birth to her daughter Amalia.

Teyana Taylor

Teyana Taylor revealed the happy news that she is expecting her second child with a music video for her song "Wake Up Love." In the closing scene of the video, Taylor shares a kiss in bed with her 4-year-old daughter Iman Tayla (a.k.a. Junie) and NBA pro husband, Iman Shumpert, before pulling down her blanket and lifting up her shirt to reveal her baby bump for the first time.

One thing's for sure: These famous kiddos will have some pretty cool stories to tell!
