Jessie James Decker is all about keeping motherhood and the change of her body real.
The singer-songwriter has always been open with her fans on social media — especially when it comes to motherhood.
Sharing her postpartum pooch on Instagram, the “Lights Down Low” mom has regularly offered a clear lens into the world of stretch marks and c-section scars from her point of view.
“I am so glad that I was able to show mommies what a real body looks like after baby,” James Decker, 27, tells PEOPLE exclusively of her decision to post candid shots on social media. “I have my scar and pooch, and 90 percent of the time I look a mess!”
“Women are too hard on themselves to be perfect,” says the singer, who is also mom to 18-month-old Vivianne Rose. “I think it’s more endearing to just be real. I also think it’s important for women to support each other.” “I don’t want to mislead any [mommies] who just had babies and are stressing,” James Decker’s photo caption read. “Wanted to make sure y’all saw what my tummy looks like under the tank top and blazer.”
