Tia Mowry-Hardict and her husband welcomed their second child together in early May, and just a few weeks later, the star is speaking candidly about how she's feeling. "This is MY #postpartum. Two weeks in. Do I still have a belly yes. I actually look like I'm 4 months pregnant and that is OKAY," she wrote on Instagram. "I wanted to shine a light on how our society creates false expectations after a woman gives birth. Ladies, it's okay that our bodies are not PERFECT after our babies are born. Give yourself time. Go at your own pace."

The actress encouraged moms to love themselves, adding, "Don't allow people to put a time limit on YOUR body. You've accomplished a miracle! #Love yourself, love your new body, embrace it. If you want to make changes than that's your desire and no one else's. Ps #moms freaking rock!"

This isn't the first time Tia has gotten real about her pregnancy journey. Before giving birth to her daughter, she took time to reflect on her infertility struggle. "I didn't let my infertility issues define me or define what my goals were and what I wanted out of life. We did try for a long time. It was hard. But I didn't give up," she told People. Fast forward a few months, and Tia is a happy mother of two who is "feeling grateful and blessed."
