Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi wants to show off her post-partum body and she doesn’t give a damn what the online trolls have to say!
Snooki shares the CUTEST video of baby Angelo:
Just four days after giving birth to her third child, the Jersey Shore star took to Instagram to share a mirror selfie and provide her fellow mums with some #fitness goals.
Wearing a blue crop top and black tracksuit bottoms, the 31-year-old captioned the image: “4 days postpartum & body is feeling good besides the fact that my cramps still feel like contractions!”
“Still healing but can’t wait to jump back into the gym hardcore this summer! Time to be a fit mawma again for my nuggets 💪🏽”
However, despite the positive message, many of Snooki’s fans saw the social media post as just an excuse to show off her body, slamming the reality star for being too obsessed with getting in shape so soon after giving birth.
“Why is there so much pressure to bounce back? Why is there so much focus on how flat a new moms belly is? 🤦🏻♀️,” one wrote while a second fan comented, “Is this really necessary? God forbid you don’t look skinny days after birth 🙄”
The mum-of-three addressed the criticism by editing the caption of her post to read:
“Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but don’t attack me for wanting to become strong and fit again after my pregnancy.”
“My boobs are leaking and pulsating, my butthole is sore and my cramps are unbearable & I’m still wearing a diaper the size of Texas.
“Postpartum is a bitch. But I’m allowed to look on the bright side of things and want to get back into shape. Don’t punish me for that.”
“THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR ADVICE ON HOW TO DEAL WITH RECOVERY!” she added before signing off with:
“I’m still keeping my diaper on for weeks tho.”
Snooki and hubby Jionni LaValle welcomed their third child, son Angelo on May 30. The couple also share older son Lorenzo, six and daughter, Giovanna, four.
