The pregnant mum of two believes that all bodies should be seen as "wonderfully unique".

Giovanna Fletcher, 33, has urged all women to embrace their "real" bodies for what they are.

The wife of author and singer/songwriter Tom Fletcher, 32, has posted an image of her enjoying a family holiday in Florida and has written an inspiring message alongside it. 

 

Talking about ‘real’ bodies can’t be done without body shaming those who have the bodies we’ve been relentlessly told we should strive to achieve, which really goes against what praising and embracing our different body shapes is meant to do in the first place. ‘Real’ bodies, ‘real’ women, ‘real’ mums... I’m pretty sure we’re all ‘real’ no matter our sizes, if we have flawless skin or cellulite and stretch marks, or if we’re an apple, pear, oval, diamond or hourglass. Our bodies should be seen as wonderfully unique, not something to be ashamed of - or something people might judge us over. Question actions and words, but not a body’s inability to ever achieve a thigh gap, someone’s muscular abs, slender frame or a wobbly bingo wing. I still have moments where I doubt myself, where I think before stripping down to my swimwear, but then I remember how much my body has given me (and continues to give me) and I decide to get into that blooming pool and splash around with my beautiful boys. Better than that, I love every second. Don’t let your body hold you back, whatever your shape and size. Don’t judge or compare. Be you... be the best you in that moment. Xxx
