Hunter McGrady is discussing her postpartum body.
Recently, the new mother posted an Instagram photo of herself in her bra and underwear. McGrady talked about how she’s learning to love her body again after giving birth in the caption.
“I’m Just a Girl,” McGrady, 28, wrote, “standing in front of a mirror, 12 days postpartum, with breast milk stains and depends diapers, pure exhaustion, asking herself to learn to love this new body.”
At the end of June, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and her husband, Brian Keys, welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Hudson Tynan.
Hudson’s middle name honors McGrady’s younger brother Tynan, who died on May 1 at the age of 23.
During her pregnancy, the model spoke out about the lack of representation for plus-size pregnant women in an emotional April Instagram post.
“Being plus size the representation already falls incredibly short, but being plus size AND pregnant? Forget it,” McGrady shared. “When I embarked on this journey I was excitedly googling pregnancy, plus size pregnancy, bump pictures, updates, all the things! However, I never saw myself represented.”
