Roommates, we recently announced that Parker McKenna Posey is the new mom to a baby girl named Harley. The actress kept her pregnancy a secret and made the announcement on Instagram in May. Like most new mothers, Parker has apparently had times to come to terms with her new life. On Thursday, the actress took to Instagram to share details on restoring her confidence after the birth.
Parker shared that prior to a trip to Miami, she felt unsure of “be in anyone’s swimsuit. She found herself making comparisons between herself and others without “feeling” herself. Parker also shared that she had only experienced this feeling once in her life. However, the moment helped her reflect on the novelty of parenthood.
“It’s new to me… so I realized YES !!! This is all completely new to me, ”Parker wrote in a long caption. “I am a new mom. In a whole new space! A MOM AT WORK. A bad woman !!!! ”
She continued to talk about learning about herself and promoting self-love.
“I have to relearn my body and learn to love this new woman that I have become, ”Parker wrote. “I recently read that self-love is not a destination, it’s a journey !!!!!!”
Parker posted five photos to accompany the insightful caption. In these photos, she is wearing a multi-print one-piece swimsuit. She was seen posing in what appears to be a bathroom door. Her hair is styled in long blonde and dark brown locks.
Parker also expressed his gratitude for his body and the journey he went through.
“All I know is this body gave birth to an 8-1 / 2-pound baby NATURALLY,” Parker wrote. “I’m thankful for this and thankful for all shapes and sizes that I’ve been .. none of this will ever take away from the fact that I’m the fucking shit !!!! !!!!”
Parker posted a follow-up to his initial post on Friday. The new post apparently targeted people who allegedly criticized the actress for the appearance of her body in the swimsuit photos.
“I NEVER fish for compliments,” Parker wrote. “But more importantly, I NEVER want to hurt anyone while I’m sharing my trip… For me, it doesn’t matter how many people tell me ‘how beautiful I look’, what matters how I feel. for myself.
Parker also shared that she feels love and joy every day of motherhood, but those feelings don’t take away from being “Parker first.” Additionally, she spoke about how the body changes during and after pregnancy.
“… Even though you can’t see through pictures, videos, filters and boomerangs what I’m seeing or what I understand how I’m feeling… it’s MY TRUTH,” Parker wrote. “I’m very rarely super open to IG because of bullshit like that. But I wanted to be transparent and let you know that we ALL have insecurities no matter what it looks like on IG, no one is perfect or feels perfect 24/7.
