Giovanna Fletcher Has An Important Message About Her Post-Pregnancy Body

"Yes, I still have a bump,"

Giovanna Fletcher gave birth to her second son Buddy two weeks ago and yesterday, she took to Instagram to say that a “near-stranger” made a comment about her post-pregnancy body.

The mother of two, who is married to McFly musician Tom Fletcher, shared the below photo on Instagram with the caption:

“A few days ago I had a near stranger point at my stomach, laugh and say “Oh look, Mummy’s still got her tummy.

“This was eleven days after giving birth. I was so shocked I laughed. But the words have stuck with me. Obviously.

“It wasn’t left there either as there was another comment about my face “slimming down”. More than anything, I was baffled over the stranger’s need to share her thoughts…

“Yes, I still have a bump. But that bump kept my little baby boy safe for a whole nine months. That bump has filled my world with even more love and light than I knew possible. That bump is a miracle worker…”.

A few days ago I had a near stranger point at my stomach, laugh and say 'Oh look, Mummy's still got her tummy'. This was eleven days after giving birth. I was so shocked I laughed. But the words have stuck with me. Obviously. It wasn't left there either as there was another comment about my face 'slimming down'. More than anything, I was baffled over the stranger's need to share her thoughts… Yes, I still have a bump. But that bump kept my little baby boy safe for a whole nine months. That bump has filled my world with even more love and light than I knew possible. That bump is a miracle worker… My bump will slowly go over time, but I'll never stop being thankful to it and my body for everything it's given me. #spreadlove ❤️ xx
