Teddi Mellencamp shows off ‘stretch marks and loose skin’ after giving birth
Teddi Mellencamp is getting candid about her body.
The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star posed in a high-waisted bikini and showed off her stretch marks and loose skin in a video posted to Instagram on Sunday just five months after giving birth to her third child.
“It’s easy to lose ourselves in comparison- how we perceive our bodies vs others,” Mellencamp, 39, captioned the post. “We too often default to self-criticism and forget about the effort we’ve put in to get to here. It’s taken years of work for me to feel comfy enough to head to a beach day and only think about the good times I’ll be having with the kiddos, rather than things not fully in my control.”
She continued, “And even so, I can snap a pic feeling confident in my bikini but the reality is the stretch marks and loose skin are there.”
But the reality TV star says she is owning her body.
“I’ve learned to love and embrace them because they tell my story,” she said. “So today, I am heading to the beach feeling good about myself because that’s the only way it should be. With lots of SPF and Truly’s of course!”
Mellencamp and husband Edwin Arroyave welcomed daughter Dove in February.
Their newborn had to have a neurosurgical procedure after being diagnosed with Lambdoid Craniosynostosis. The surgery was a success.
In June, the wellness coach gave a post-partum update, sharing, “Having that consistency of clean-eating and daily activity gave me a routine that helped me manage my time and anxiety.”
The Bravo personality and Arroyave also share daughter Slate and son Cruz.
