Anne Hathaway gave birth to a baby boy (opens in new tab) in March, and—as usual—her body was put under a microscope. Now, in a refreshingly honest move, Hathaway hit Instagram to let everyone know that she's making herself a new pair of denim shorts since "last summer's are just too dang short for this summer's thighs."

Hathaway is the latest in a string of celebrities to challenge the post-pregnancy expectations put upon new moms, including Kim Kardashian, who said (opens in new tab) "I was so jealous of women who had these cute little baby bellies and would gain 25 pounds—and then, a few weeks after giving birth, somehow look exactly like they did before they were pregnant, lol. That's not me."

Hathaway's comments (and Kim's—we see you too!) are a great inspiration for new moms, but reminder: All bodies are beautiful. Sure, sounds cliché, but it's still a concept that just doesn't get thrown around enough.
