Katie Piper’s candid weight confession – 3 months after giving birth

The star stunned in a top-skirt combo earlier this weekend, but felt the resultant pap photos were unflattering - and spoke out as a result


Katie Piper is an inspirational person in every sense of the term, we can surely all agree.


So, it’s no surprise to see she’s used a recent outfit post on Instagram to share her honest thoughts about her post-baby weight and figure.

The 33-year-old star gave birth to her 2nd child, daughter Penelope, 3 months ago now.

And in the snaps, Katie looked gorge in a long-sleeved black top and floaty skirt combo – but felt the pap photos of her look showed the tiniest hint of ‘mumtum’.

From Mother To Daughter author Katie also candidly shared that she was 1.5 stone heavier than her pre-baby weight – and reminded us all that this is totally, totally normal.

(Because that IS totally normal and SO natural.) Here’s what she wrote…

“Yesterday’s outfit Dress @bymalenebirger Boots @louboutinworld and Bag @marcjacobs Hair and Make up @thebeautybo.

“Yes I am aware these are not the most flattering pictures of me, I didn’t realise my top would go see thru in the camera flash and my posture isn’t great either.

“My baby is now 12 weeks old and I’m probably a stone and half heavier than normal but that is also normal.

“I’m ignoring the troll comments, eating healthy, exercising when I can fit it in and enjoying my baby.

“For those people that sent me messages saying I shouldn’t of worn this outfit – I will wear what I want and not what pleases others.”

Katie obviously looks relaxed, happy and glamorous in the pics ❤️  We also wouldn’t say no to a quick rummage through her wardrobe… despite what trolls are apparently saying about this stylish look.

But we are secretly pleased to see she’s opened up about something as personal as her post-baby weight, especially since we know it’ll be reassuring to other new mums. To help them know that ‘not bouncing back’ is totally OK!

Maybe we’ll see more of this as time goes on…

Very recently, 20-year-old new mum and lip kit mogul Kylie Jenner revealed on Twitter that she’d gained 40lbs during her pregnancy, after being asked the question by a fan during a Q&A.

Sadly, and we’re not entirely sure why, she felt the need to promptly delete the tweet not long after posting 💔
