Daphne Oz opened up to her social media followers about the realities of having a baby and the impact on a woman’s body.
Almost two months after giving birth to third child Domenica Celine, the former The Chew co-host, 31, shared a photo of her body after baby on Instagram and Twitter Tuesday along with a stirring message to fellow new moms.
“Seven weeks post partum, still looking three months pregnant,” Oz captioned her mirror selfie in which she was dressed in a black bra and underwear.
“There is no bounce-back, it’s all onwards and upwards. every day has moments of total splendor and also a decent number of WTFs,” said the mother of three, who welcomed Domenica Celine with husband John Jovanovic on Dec. 4.

seven weeks post partum, still looking three months pregnant 🤗 there is no bounce-back, it’s all onwards and upwards. every day has moments of total splendor and also a decent number of WTFs. I especially want the new mamas out there to hear that, because we see so much of how glossy motherhood can be and not enough of how real 3D life is always complicated (and better for it). you’re experience will be just right for you. prepare to be amazed by some things and horrified by others. motherhood is as complex and wonderful as the woman. ❤️
