As a mother of two, former “Bachelor” star Ali Fedotowsky knows that with babies comes a lot of change— especially to your body.

Ali took to Instagram to share a beautiful photo of her post-baby tummy along with an important message about self-love and body positivity.

“Self-love is a difficult thing to fully embrace,” she started. “When I look at myself in the mirror I can’t help but notice that my hips are wider than they used to be, my wrinkles are deeper than when I was in my 20’s, and my stomach has lumps and bumps that didn’t used to be there.”

When she gets these thoughts, Ali says she re-channels her brain to remember the reason why her body has changed.

“But then I try to remember that my hips are wider because they give birth to two beautiful children. My wrinkles are deeper because I’ve spent countless sleepless nights making sure my kiddos are cared for, fed, and loved. And my belly is extra squishy because it spent 18 months making sure two sweet little babies had a place to call home.”

She closed with a note about embracing your “flaws.”

“Sometimes what we see as “flaws” on the outside, are actually what make us stunningly beautiful on the inside.”
