Mom Of 4 Posted This Picture Of Herself Because She Was Tired Of Hearing She Had A “Perfect Body.”
Kimberly Henderson is used to receiving compliments for having a ‘perfect body.’ The musician, who gained an online following after her lullaby cover of Whitney Houston’s, “How Will I Know” went viral and mother of four works out regularly. However, she still has stretch marks and loose belly skin. Instead of hiding behind a photoshopped picture depicting a flat, perfectly toned stomach, Henderson is owning her truth and sharing it on social media.
Uploading a selfie to Facebook, Henderson shows off her midriff and offers a refreshing perspective: “...everyday I get to wake up to 4 beautiful smiling faces and I'm reminded that they are worth this flabby belly and they are worth these stretch marks.” She adds being a mother is more beautiful than any six pack.
It is great to see strong and beautiful women redefine beauty standards and take a stand against mass media that bombards girls and women with unrealistic portrayals of the female form.
Henderson uploaded an untouched photo of herself. It has gotten over 143,000 Likes on Facebook.
