Learning to love your body after baby can take time for some parents. But not Bekah Martinez.

Four days after giving birth to her daughter, the former The Bachelor contestant posed for a mirror selfie wearing postpartum underwear to send a message of self-love and appreciation for her body.

“So amazing what we can do. I’ve never felt so much love and respect for my body, diaper and all,” Martinez writes over a picture on her Instagram Stories, adding the hashtag #ThisIsPostPartum.

The reality star and her boyfriend, Grayston Leonard, welcomed their baby girl into the world earlier this week via water birth.

“On the morning of February 2, our little girl joined us earth-side, and we will never be the same. We are all as healthy and happy as can be,” she writes on Instagram.

Martinez tooks fans by surprise when she announced her pregnancy back in September. She and Leonard initially wanted to keep the news private to give themselves time away from the public eye. But since sharing the sweet update, the mom has been pretty open on social media, posting pregnancy photos to capture her journey.
