Katharine McPhee‘s family is not letting anyone comment on her post-baby body.
This past week, the 37-year-old’s husband David Foster posted a photo of the mom of one on Instagram.
He captioned the post with “What baby!” — most likely referencing his wife’s post-baby figure after she gave birth to their son Rennie David earlier this year.
To which social media haters criticized his comment on the photo. McPhee responded on Wednesday in a post of her own.
“I’m sorry but we are not sorry. And for all of you who can’t deal with it maybe this helps. I’ve struggled with weight my whole 20s and 30. I’ve gone up and down 10 times over. Does that make you feel better? There is nothing wrong with that — most people do,” she began in the caption alongside another photo of her in a bathing suit.
In the comment section, Foster’s daughters Erin, 39, and Sara, 40, also supported McPhee’s message.
“If I can accept my step mom looking like this, you certainly should be able to,” joked Erin. “The photo wasn’t altered or filtered and she’s had no surgery. You can’t shame someone for feeling cute after a baby whether she’s sharing stretch marks or a six pack. Let her live.”
Added Sara, “If you had had cellulite and stretch marks in the photo and the caption was exactly the same we would all be celebrating his post. But you don’t and that’s not allowed to be celebrated.”
“Also, you had a baby almost a year ago, not yesterday,” she continued.
“You have been working your a** off in the gym. Let’s complain about women and husbands who post 3 week postpartum pics with their full body lipo, filters and altering apps that make us all feel like s***. People are crazy.”
In her caption, McPhee continued, “I lost this baby weight without dieting. Zero. Diets are the worst and I’ve had zero pressure from anyone. I’ve let me body do its thing and found a great workout. That’s it. And guess what? I’ll probably gain weight again at some point too. Who cares? BUT people freaking out about what my husband captioned seriously get a life… Stop being so offended by what people post who have zero impact on your life and move on.”
“Maybe you should have more of an attitude of like, let’s say… ‘oh that’s nice he thinks his wife is hot,’ ” she concluded. “I cannot with this overly sensitive society right now. But as Taylor Swift said haters gonna hate byyeeee.”
McPhee and Foster had Rennie in February after marrying in June of 2019.
