Danielle Armstrong praised for showing postpartum body 10 days after C-section

Former TOWIE star Danielle Armstrong has been praised by fans for her candid post and real photo of her body 10 days postpartum.

The 35 year old, who recently welcomed her second daughter Una Rae via C-section, posted a snap of herself in a black bra and pants while in the dressing room of her Essex home.

In a video also in the post she turns around for the camera displaying her body to her followers while cradling adorable little Una.

Captioning the candid upload, Danielle, who also shares three year old daughter Orla with husband Tom Edney, said: "I’ve been recovering after having a C – Section and wow I didn’t realise the simple things that I took for granted like getting out of bed, picking up Orla to cuddle her, bending down to pick things up and even putting on my underwear (thankfully my Tom has been amazing )."

Talking about her body the Essex girl added: "I’m celebrating what an amazing job it’s done, growing a tiny human being and going through a big operation to bring life into this world."

She then explained she wanted to show women exactly what a body looks like after pregnancy.

She said: "When I had Orla I remember thinking why did I still look pregnant for so long after I gave birth & I constantly compared myself to other women that had babies around the same time as me, how can they be back in their skinny jeans and I’m still wearing maternity clothes."

The fitness enthusiast also explained: "I know I’ll get my body back like I did after my first pregnancy, but I’m not putting pressure on myself or comparing myself to others this time."

It's unsurprising considering Danielle's refreshingly honest post that so many of her friends and followers sent their words of love and appreciation.

"Your blessed with two healthy beautiful girls." one fan said. "Tooo much pressure today to look a certain way … whatever your size embrace your body . Each tells a different story . Be happy in your own skin."

While another said: "You look amazing you are doing great."

Danielle announced the birth of her second child in a beautiful Instagram montage of the birth and welcoming Una home.

Days later Una met Danielle's close pal Ferne McCann's newborn baby Finty.
