She shared screenshots of encouraging and sweet replies that fans left on the thumbs-up selfie. One fan wrote that she was beautiful with or without stretch marks.
In her stories, Carson explained that she had noticed new stretch marks in a different spot on her body and felt upset. She shared that loving her post-birth body was a process:
"I guess when I found them the other day in a new spot I was emotional & in the process of accepting my new momma body."
Another fan wrote a length reply and said that she loved Carson's message and that she was beautiful no matter how many stretch marks she had.

after giving birth was no joke.
The photo featured Carson hold a tiny Leo to her chest. She wore a blue sweatsuit while baby Leo was in an olive-colored onesie. The caption read:
"Finally wearing real clothes but still in a diaper ? healing from a birth is no joke! So proud of this body."
During the month, Carson and her "DWTS" costar, Lindsey Arnold, introduced their babies to each other during an adorable playdate. Arnold gave birth to her daughter Sage in November.
