What did the Bringing Up Bates star share about her postpartum body?
On her Instagram Stories, Katie Bates took fans along as she attempted to buy her first pair of jeans postpartum. She shared a couple of snaps from the fitting room with her husband Travis Clark and their baby girl Hailey, who’s almost a month old.
In one short clip, Katie recorded Travis as he folded and stacked several pairs of jeans on the bench in the fitting room. She asked her followers to “send help.” Then, she explained, “That feeling when I’ve tried on 20 different things and only 1 fits.” Finally, she added a hashtag, blaming it on her being #postpartum.
The new family of three posed for a mirror picture, and Katie said, “Love our little fam.” They all look as happy as ever.
