DWTS Pro Witney Carson Opens up about Accepting Post-pregnancy Body a Month after Childbirth

"Dancing With The Stars" pro Witney Carson opened up about accepting her post-pregnancy body a month after childbirth.

"Dancing With The Stars" professional dancer Witney Carson opened up on her Instagram stories about accepting her post-pregnancy body a month after giving birth.

The professional dancer posted a thumbs-up selfie and wrote how she had almost "freaked out" after finding stretch marks on her body. 

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. 

Carson and her husband, Carson McAllister, welcomed their son Kevin Leo McCallister on January 3, 2021. It seems the couple is calling him by his middle name, Leo.

Carson and her "DWTS" costar, Lindsey Arnold, introduced their babies to each other during an adorable playdate.

Carson has been sharing a few photos of her with her 1-month-old. Including a candid mirror selfie where she shared that healing 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. 

Carson had announced Leo's birth earlier in the month and share that she had been through 24-hour labor and had to undergo a c-section. 

She had shared with her fans that she and her husband were expecting in July. Carson and McAllister have been married since 2015. 

Although having gone through a stressful birth, it seems mother and son are doing well. Her Instagram is now filled with adorable photos of her little family.
