Yes, mama! Daphne Oz took to Instagram on Tuesday, Nov. 22, to put her bare baby bump on display in a gorgeous nude mirror-pic selfie. The 31-year-old TV personality — who is 38 weeks pregnant with baby No. 3 — also revealed her current weight. Check it out in the video below!
Daphne, who shares daughter Philomena, 3, and son Jovan, 2, with husband John Jovanovic, explained in a lengthy caption that she was initially unsure about posting the skin-baring shot. However, after giving it some thought, the mom-of-three decided that she could empower other women by celebrating the beauty of the female body and its capabilities.
"I have collages of each baby growing in my belly and try to write myself little reminders of what it felt like to know their movements and the excitement of holding them inside me before I got to know the actual people that would emerge," she explained. "But I decided to share it with all of you because the female body is worth so much more than objectification, scrutiny, comparison, hatred...We do so much in this skin. We all have complex relationships with the history of how we get comfortable living in and owning it.”
Daphne — who covered a portion of her body in pink doodles — added, “Mine has been a long, winding journey forward and back and forward again. And then there are moments like this that are a perfect duality: heavy and light, exhausted and exhilarated, unrecognizable and yet distinctly me (plus someone else). These last few weeks of pregnancy have gone so fast and slow and it got me thinking about a lot. I feel like you guys think these thoughts too. BIG LOVE!”
