Kylie Padilla, for almost two months after giving birth to her and Aljur Abrenica’s son, has been a victim of body-shaming on social media. But she speaks up in behalf of those who are and have been bullied because of their shapes and sizes.

On Friday, Kylie bravely took to Instagram her thoughts on the issue, after netizens gave rude comments on a photo she recently shared.

Her post read, “I recently experienced some body-shaming on my last post at the gym and I didn’t really get my feelings hurt but I had this thought, people know I just gave birth, right? Still, comments kept coming in about how fat I was. And guess what yes, I am fat. I am overweight.”

I really didn't want to make this a big deal because honestly it isn't but I wanted to have my say before I go "lose this baby weight and be societies definition of sexy" again. I recently experienced some body shaming on my last post at the gym and I didn't really get my feelings hurt but I had this thought, people know i just gave birth right? Still, comments kept coming in about how fat I was. And guess what yes, I am fat. I am overweight. Whatever these things people tell me that is supposed to make me feel guilty or bad. Fine, but the thing is I have never felt so confident, so happy and so in love with my body. Stretch marks and all. Before having a baby I had a body that was hungry, a body I treated so badly that I got used to being depressed only because I was starving. A body I was disappointed with, no matter how thin and tired I was I still was not happy because I let society tell me my body was not "perfect." So even after carrying a baby for 9 months and giving birth to a new life I still fall under "fat" or "curvy" or whatever label people want to give me then so be it. I'm happy to be there. No label or opinion is going to stop me from being proud of myself that first I am now a mother and two, that finally I can choose to be happy no matter how imperfect people or culture says I am. Something that I could never do before. And I have more priorities to prioritize lol. First and foremost a baby that needs his constant supply of milk and a body that needs to recover heal and be nourished, with food and exercise. And oh a man that actually enjoys this curvy body. I seem to like it too, I feel so womanly and cushiony hahha lol kulang pa nga eh feeling ko mas masaya baby ko kung mas malaki pa ako ? Anyway so there. P.S. There is no sin in being confident no matter what size, shape, color even race you are. Don't let people shame you. Ok I have said my piece so peace bye! ???

Instead of taking all the negativity in, Kylie proudly expressed it was only after giving birth (last month) that she started to really love her body. And that after all, people will always have something to say about others.

“Before having a baby I had a body that was hungry, a body I treated so badly that I got used to being depressed only because I was starving. A body I was disappointed with, no matter how thin and tired I was I still was not happy because I let society tell me my body was not “perfect,” she said.

Kylie goes on to add, “So even after carrying a baby for 9 months and giving birth to a new life I still fall under ‘fat’ or ‘curvy’ or whatever label people want to give me then so be it. I’m happy to be there.”

Kylie is more concerned about her baby’s needs than what other people are saying about her body or weight, and she also mentions, in a ‘flirtatious’ tone, that her ‘man actually enjoys her now-curvy body.’

“First and foremost a baby that needs his constant supply of milk and a body that needs to recover heal and be nourished, with food and exercise. And oh a man that actually enjoys this curvy body. I seem to like it too, I feel so womanly and cushiony hahaha lol kulang pa nga eh feeling ko mas masaya baby ko kung mas malaki pa ako. [this isn’t enough yet, I feel like my baby is happier if I was bigger].

Day 3 With the help of the wink corset. @urbanessentialsinc * the key is to focus and be consistent.

Kylie expressed her bravery for standing against body shaming as an inspiration to others, especially those who are experiencing the same. She further encouraged everyone to embrace who they are and love their body no matter what body type or shape they have.
