Real Housewives Of Atlanta star Porsha Williams has wanted to be a mom for quite a while. Now that her beautiful daughter Pilar Jhena is here, she is 100% focused on being the best mom she can be. However, that doesn’t mean she won’t carve out a little time to put the body shamers in their place.
The new mommy recently had a pool day with her sister Lauren Williams, her best friend Shamea Morton, and both of their daughters. Porsha looked incredible in a black bikini with sexy cutouts while little miss PJ was a doll in her baby Burberry one-piece. It was the perfect mix of family and bonding time with the little ones.
Unfortunately, the reality star couldn’t enjoy a day at the pool without a troll coming at her. Though she did receive tons of love, Williams was criticized about her body under a photo of herself and her daughter. “It looks a teeny bit photoshopped,” one commenter wrote. “You need to cover up P until you lose the baby phat,” read another comment.
After scrolling through some of the negative comments, Williams set the record straight with her followers that she isn’t buying into the pressure society puts on new moms to shed their pregnancy weight. “Moms are badass don’t let anyone tell you different,” she writes. “Ps: It’s just weird I actually get this a lot. I think social media has altered people’s perception of what moms look like. A lot of moms tell me how they get under handed compliments or jokes about their weight and it really affects them in a negative way. I just feel like we should be able to bask in motherhood and let our bodies naturally heal and evolve.”
In an exclusive interview with ESSENCE back in April, Williams said she’s in no rush to get back to her pre-pregnancy weight. “I would definitely enjoy a snatched body, but I’m not concentrating on that,” she said. “I waited 37 years to have this baby. I’m concentrating on PJ and her health and how she’s doing.”
Online trolls aren’t the only ones who have criticized Williams’ appearance. The reality star posted a text message spat between herself and Nene Leakes, who allegedly called her fat six days after giving birth. Experiences like this are why Porsha’s says she’s done subscribing to unfair body image standards. “I had Pj 4 months ago and I just don’t feel ready to workout,” she continued in her recent post. “The snap back culture has put pressure on most moms so they end up feeling insecure about what their body is naturally doing and looks like. Ion know call me weird but I actually adore my lil marks and feel like it’s a lil badge of honor as all moms should🤷🏾♀️❤️ I just want to use myself to encourage fellow mommies.”
Clearly, the folks who felt it necessary to be hateful in the comments need to get their vision checked ASAP, because mama looks amazing!
