Stretch marks be damned. When it came to posing in the buff for the May issue of Allure, some celebrity mamas weren't shy about showing off every last inch of their post-pregnancy figures.
"I talk a big game about being comfortable no matter my size," Kristen Bell said of her nude shoot. "I wanted to put my money where my mouth was."
Bell, who welcomed daughter Lincoln last year, is joined by fellow moms Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Nia Long and Minnie Driver.
"Chan was really on board with it," said Dewan-Tatum of her husband and father of her infant daughter, Everly. "He knows I'm very comfortable in my own skin." The actress and former Janet Jackson back-up dancer swears by the grueling plank exercises her trainer forcers her to do. No pain, no nude photo shoot, we guess.
Meanwhile, Bell — who pretended to go naked for a recent appearance on Ellen — said being pregnant didn't faze her as much as she had feared.
"I was terribly frightened that I would feel like a schlub and not at all beautiful," she recalled. "But, I've never been so comfortable with my body. When I looked in the mirror, I saw Cindy Crawford. [After giving birth,] I started doing Pilates, then I realized it wasn't as torturous as regular cardio, so I've kept it up. I'm more in shape now than I've been at other times in my life."
Let's hope these hot mamas get something good for Mother's Day next month! They certainly deserve it. (Allure)
