Keke Palmer talks embracing her post-pregnancy body

On Monday, The Cut revealed Palmer as its newest cover star. Along with the release, Palmer also participated in an exclusive interview where she talked about embracing her body after pregnancy. As previously reported by The Shade Room, the 29-year-old gave birth to her first child, Leodis Andrellton Jackson, with her boyfriend, Darius Daulton Jackson, in February.

During the interview, Palmer explained that she has “become a lot more powerful” since becoming a mother. She explained that before she had a child, she was “really self-conscious”.

“After I had my baby, I just got so much more empowered… Shaking my stuff, enjoying myself… before I even had my baby, I was really, really self-conscious. In a way you would expect, considering the kind of work I do as a public figure. I’m always trying to be right with my body and make sure I take care of this and that. There is a lot of physical attention. Being slim and fit in a certain way was always something I was shooting for…”

However, Palmer explained that since she has her son, she has put stress in places she never had before.

“After I had the baby, my body got a lot bigger and I started getting fluff in areas I never had before.

She continued by explaining that her goal with her fitness trainer was to move. Furthermore, she realized that the change in her body was something to “accept.”

“I was trying to work with my trainer, Corey Calliet, and he was just like, ‘Well, we’re never going to try to get your body back to what it was. before the child because you gave birth to a child.’ It seems, that’s not something to hide, that’s something to embrace. We are going to continue into this new group…”

Palmer continued by explaining that today “it’s about loving who” she is and what she has experienced. “

“It’s about loving who I am and loving what I’ve experienced and what I’ve gone through to get me here. Thank you very much.”

The actor shares words of encouragement for other mothers

During the interview, the actor also shared advice for other “new moms” dealing with criticism. The 29-year-old encouraged them to “do it with you.”

“Are you, new moms. Are you. Girl, if there is one person on this earth who loves you for sure, it is that child. Be happy, because there is no love like it. Someone loves you like that, hell, who cares?”

Keke Palmer also touched on living life “Under a Magnifying Glass”

Elsewhere during the interview, the 29-year-old mother of one also touched on life as a public figure. She explained that there is “such a thing as privacy,” but that she is “just a normal person. “

She explained that although she is putting her “best foot forward”, she is “fallible” and does not want to be held to an “unbelievable standard”.

“I am flawed. I will definitely try to put my best foot forward. But again, because I don’t like the ideology and I don’t like the kind of time we’re in with fame, I definitely believe it myself, pointing out my flaws, always saying that I’m not perfect because I really do not care. I don’t want people to put me to this incredible level…”

Palmer explained that she “doesn’t live to be a celebrity.” Instead, she lives to “give something positive to the world” and should be allowed to “at least” be herself.

“I don’t live to be famous. I live to do what I love, to share love, to give something positive to the world. Being under a magnifying glass all my life, it was a kind of surrender to realize that no matter what I do, it will never be enough, so that’s okay. At least let me be myself.”
