10 Absurd ‘Post Baby Body’ Headlines Replaced With Celebrity Dads

1channing__1374755868_74.134.205.46If y’all haven’t noticed, I’m pretty sick of the way the media and tabloid magazines treat women after having a baby. Being pregnant is exhausting and having a baby is a huge amount of work! And at the end of it, no one ever takes the man who impregnated the woman to task for looking less than magazine-cover ready or for gaining some sympathy weight or for leaving the house looking like he may be suffering from a distinct lack of sleep.

But what if we did? What if we lived in a world where magazine headlines read things about dads like we are used to seeing about female celebrity moms? I think it’s time someone throws some of this post baby body BS towards the men who have become new fathers. I  have happily stolen real headlines about celebrity moms and replaced the mom’s names with that of celebrity dads. I don’t agree with criticizing anyone for their appearance regardless of sex, but the thought of living in a world where we put men under the same sort of intense scrutiny as we put women is all too appealing at times. Especially when we see these types of headlines every day.

Even though his wife rocked some sexy mom bangs, President Obama continues to appear older and older with each month he spends in office. Could running the country and being the proud daddy of two young girls be the reason the president looks old and tired?

    It is just awful that we have become brainwashed into body-shaming women. This reads as a comedy piece if you didn’t read the intro.

  • BrendaKilgour

    This is brilliant.

  • jsterling93

    I love what you are saying but I got distracted. something about a big man like Chris Hemsworth holding a tiny baby makes we want to breed again.

    • koolchicken

      Ah yes, the human stroller. I wonder how many children he’s indirectly responsible for…

  • jaybee

    This article may have a point, but I was too busy looking at Javier Bardem.

    Are you turning the focus on men because you feel that men are the driving factor behind criticism of after baby celebrity bodies?

    Newsflash, the vast majority of men couldn’t care less about any celebrity baby body.
    This is all driven by women.

    Leave the men out of it, we don’t want your hatred.

    • Tawrens

      Yeah John the male driven media that sexualizes 10 yr olds having nothing to do with body shaming women. Can I come and live in neverland with you?

    • Perstephane

      I think it was meant more to be amusing – how ridiculous does it sound when this is done to the dads? I’m pregnant with my first kid, and this just made me giggle. No media agenda/body image issues/culture focus necessary.

  • RW

    I LOVE THIS. It seems so ridiculous in this context, but when you think about the fact that these are not unusual criticisms for women, it’s just priceless. They’ll keep doing it if you keep buying the magazines, ladies!
