Giovanna and her husband Tom Fletcher welcomed their second child, Buddy Bob, into the world nearly two weeks ago. 

But sharing a snap of herself on Instagram today, the author revealed that someone had made a comment about the size of her stomach. 

"A few days ago I had a near stranger point at my stomach, laugh and say 'Oh look, Mummy's still got her tummy'," she wrote.

"This was 11 days after giving birth. I was so shocked I laughed. But the words have stuck with me. Obviously. 

"It wasn't left there either as there was another comment about my face 'slimming down'. More than anything, I was baffled over the stranger's need to share her thoughts."

Buzz's mum added that despite the comment, she was happy with her post-pregnancy shape. 

"Yes, I still have a bump - but that bump kept my little baby boy safe for a whole 9 months," she continued.  

"That bump has filled my world with even more love and light than I knew possible. 

"That bump is a miracle worker... My bump will slowly go over time, but I'll never stop being thankful to it and my body for everything it's given me. #spreadlove."

 

A few days ago I had a near stranger point at my stomach, laugh and say 'Oh look, Mummy's still got her tummy'. This was eleven days after giving birth. I was so shocked I laughed. But the words have stuck with me. Obviously. It wasn't left there either as there was another comment about my face 'slimming down'. More than anything, I was baffled over the stranger's need to share her thoughts... Yes, I still have a bump. But that bump kept my little baby boy safe for a whole nine months. That bump has filled my world with even more love and light than I knew possible. That bump is a miracle worker... My bump will slowly go over time, but I'll never stop being thankful to it and my body for everything it's given me. #spreadlove xx
