‘Sad’: MAFS star’s brutally honest photo

Married At First Sight star Jess Wardrop has opened up about her body image struggles, eight months after giving birth.

The reality TV alum - who appeared on season three of the show, during which she was brutally dumped by "husband" Dave Crisp - welcomed baby daughter Stevie Marianna with new partner Chris Pappas late last year.

 

 

While she's clearly loving being a mother, Wardrop admitted in a new Instagram post that she's had trouble adjusting to her new post-birth figure.

Alongside an old bikini photo shoot image published in New Idea, she wrote: "Feels like I'll never get close to looking like this again which makes me sad.

" … Every day I look at my body albeit very quickly and I don't recognise the body looking back at me. The human body is a wonderful thing as it created and feeds and comforts my little love but it also cause me sadness and pain because I don't like it anymore. I can respect it but we are not friends right now."

 

It's not the first time Wardrop has spoken about the body image issues which can accompany pregnancy.

After announcing she was expecting last year, the TV star took to Instagram with a "moment of truth" about her "huge body struggle".

 

She had worked hard to shed the kilograms following her 2016 appearance on MAFS, after Dave infamously told producers on-camera that he "expected something a little bit different".

Less than a year after the show wrapped, Wardrop triumphantly posted a before-and-after weight loss photo, showcasing her efforts.

 

 

Since giving birth to Stevie, Wardrop has posted shots from inside her gym alongside candid captions about how difficult it can be to get back into a workout routine.
