According to E! News, Morris was asked about her comments backstage at this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards — and she was more than happy to elaborate.
“It was important for me to realize it,” she explained about her statement. “And I realized that if I am coming to grips with this realization, I can’t be the only one.”
Morris told reporters that, after pregnancy, mothers are “always extremely pressed to erase any evidence on our body that we had a child [and] that we housed a child for nine to ten months.”
“I just realized how unhealthy that was for me and my workout journey — to be like, ‘I need to get back to where I was before’ — because that’s not really the goal.”
“[It] shouldn’t be the goal to just erase the fact that you had a kid. And I’m really proud of where my body is right now, even if it’s several pounds heavier.”
“I did something that half the population can’t do, so I think that’s pretty fucking rad.”
“I’m not, like, a stick, but I love the fact that I’ve got curves now and it proves that I did something really amazing and wonderful with my life,” Morris continued after saying she was “really proud” of her post-pregnancy self so far.
“Whether you’ve had a kid or not, who cares? Just enjoy working out if you want to do that. Enjoy eating rich, hearty foods like I did last night. I was eating short ribs before the ACM Awards. Do it all. Who cares?”
And those are words to live by.
