When Princess Jieyou star Zhang Xinyi was spotted out and about with friends at a party recently, her public appearance post baby incited a flurry of comments about her weight across the internet. The actress was none too happy about it and took to Weibo to express her discontent and her hope that people would be more mindful of their words towards new mothers.
Zhang Xinyi gave birth to a bouncing baby boy just last February with her husband Yuan Hong whom she married in 2016. And unless you’re a Victoria’s Secret model like Heidi Klum who returned to walk the runway just 5 weeks after giving birth (whoa), I think it’s only natural to expect the new mum to still have some of that post baby weight right. Well it seems some people have other ideas and commented some “not so nice things” about the actress and her post baby bod after being photographed by media on her day out.
In her Weibo post, Xinyi admitted slimming down to her pre-baby bod has not been a priority and that she hasn’t had any sleep because she is busy breastfeeding her son. The actress also adds that she wants to experience motherhood quietly sans any more drama about her post-partum body. Let’s cut the new mum some slack now guys – surely she deserves some well deserved down time to enjoy mummyhood with her new baby.
