Spoiler alert: It's something almost every mama struggles with at some point.
Several years and one beautiful baby later, Kelly Rowland appears even more confident than she was during Destiny's Child's heyday. The gorgeous mama just exudes power and she freely admits that she's "feelin' herself" these days.
But as it turns out, even women like Kelly have their insecurities. The singer came clean about one thing she wishes she could change about her post-baby body in a recent interview for Allure's "Pretty Powerful" series, saying "I wish that someone would invent something to take away stretch marks and cellulite. If you don't have stretch marks and cellulite after you had a baby, I really don't like you. It's just not fair.”
Now, we can totally relate to what Kelly is saying. It's so normal to feel a bit thrown when your body changes—but at the same time, stretch marks and cellulite are natural. And while they can be annoying, they're really nothing to stress about in the grand scheme of things.
Famous moms like Chrissy Teigen, Katherine Webb-McCarron and Kendra Wilkinson are among a growing group of women who have learned to live with—and even celebrate—their stretch marks and cellulite. While we love Kelly's candor and willingness to admit that she has physical flaws like the rest of us, we also think she's too beautiful and fierce to worry about her marks.
Overall it seems like Kelly has a really healthy, balanced view of her post-baby body. Back in February, she told our sister publication, Parents magazine, that new moms need to be patient with themselves when it comes to losing the baby weight. "It takes about a year to get the weight off. Don't beat yourself up if it takes even longer."
Does all this mean we'd turn down a safe, effective antidote for stretch marks or cellulite? No. Let's be real: If there was a simple way to nix them, we'd probably be tempted too. But since that doesn't seem to be happening anytime soon, we'll just have to learn to embrace them, won't we?
