How to Get Away With Murder star Aja Naomi King just posted an unedited postpartum selfie on Instagram, and it captures the beauty of post-baby bodies.
On June 6, King posted the photo to reveal the birth of her first child and to normalize bodies of all sizes after birth. “No, this is not a pregnancy Before picture. This is the After,” she writes in her post. “After days of labor. After experiencing what felt like my insides being ripped apart, no lie. After experiencing the unimaginable beauty of childbirth, this is what is left behind. This Gorgeous Body!”
She adds that this photo is all natural, and for a reason: “So in celebration of myself and my body for ‘Doing the Damn Thing’, I wanted to share this photo. No make up, no editing, no filters (and you know I love a filter!)…Just Me…a woman in awe of her Body and her Baby!”
The comments section showed support for her bravery and beauty, with noted from stars like Kelly McCreary, writing, “Behold! A goddess! A miracle! My Shero!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️” and Gemma Chan saying, “Congrats and love to you all ❤️❤️❤️.”
