In a new social media post, Bachelor alum Jamie Otis gets real about her postpartum body. She’s showing her social media followers what her body actually looks like during postpartum. In her post, Jamie reveals that she’s six weeks postpartum. Six weeks ago, Married at First Sight stars Jamie and Doug Hehner had a baby boy. The couple named him Hendrix Douglas. He joins big sister Henley Grace.
Jamie’s new post includes a side-by-side comparison of two pictures of her. She explains that they were taken only a minute apart. But, they look much different.
Jamie explains, “Isn’t it amazing what sucking it in & pulling up your yoga pants does?” Then, she goes on to say, “It’d be easy to only share the left pic where I look a bit more toned & skinnier.” She adds that it’s “normal” for people to still have a bump after they have given birth.
Jamie Otis mentions that it’s “empowering” to have grown her baby. So, that might help her love her postpartum body that much more.
Finally, Jamie leaves her followers with a reminder. She writes, “Sooo anyway, if you’re scrollin’ insta & all you see are toned, model worthy, Bikini-clad bods, just know that they’re probs just sucking it in.”
Jamie Otis’ followers love how honest she is
One reason why Jamie’s followers love her so much is that she’s honest. The Bachelor alum is always getting real about motherhood and life in general. They especially love this most recent post, but they also love to see whatever she decides to share each day. Sometimes, it’s about feeling mom guilt. Lately, she’s been very open about the postpartum experience, from recovery to all of the emotions she’s been feeling. This seems to help others feel like they’re not alone. And, she seems to want to normalize these kinds of things in pregnancy and motherhood.
Whenever she posts a photo on social media, she gets a lot of love from her followers. They thank her for being so honest. After all, like Jamie mentions, there are many “model worthy” people on social media. So, she knows it can be easy to get down about how your body looks. This might be exactly why Jamie shares so many real, honest moments on her Instagram page.
