She’s the Aussie fitness star who made headlines for exposing the truth behind those ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures on Instagram.
In one three second video, Emily Skye taught us that “posture, angles, posing & lighting” all make a difference in how your body appears in photos.
“Next time you look at a photo of someone who looks ‘perfect’ online or in a magazine remind yourself that the person in the photo doesn’t walk around looking like that!” she wrote.
I have something to tell you… I have a dessert baby! Haha! ???? . ⬅️ On the left is my belly when I’m not bloated & standing with a “tight tummy” or what I call “good posture”. . ➡️ On the right is my tummy VERY bloated after eating dessert last night! (It was SO worth it by the way ????). . Perfection doesn’t exist, which is easy to forget when we spend so much of our time on social media being bombarded by “perfect bodies” – or what “appears” to be. . So here’s a reminder from me that I bloat.. I also have stretch marks, cellulite and pimples (as you may have seen in previous posts). I’m nowhere near perfect.. and that’s fine by me! ☺ . #perfectnever #foodbaby #bloated #emilyskye . . @emilyskyefitness . .
“They’re posed, in their best angles with a tight or flexed tummy in ‘good’ lighting.”
Now, the 32-year-old is making headlines for another positive reason: she’s expecting!
Sharing her news on Instagram, Emily posed alongside her partner Declan as they both pushed out their bellies.
One is a food baby and the other is a REAL BABY! ???????????? . Finally the news is out. I’ve had to hide my little belly for weeks now and couldn’t wait to tell you all! @recdedmond and I are filled with so much joy and can’t wait to bring our little one into the world and share our new journey with you! So excited!! ????????
“One is a food baby and the other is a REAL BABY!” she shared, adding that she was relieved to finally be able to share the news with her two million followers.
“I’ve had to hide my little belly for weeks now and couldn’t wait to tell you all!
LISTEN: What do you do if “body positivity” doesn’t work for you? Go “body neutral”.
“[We] are filled with so much joy and can’t wait to bring our little one into the world and share our new journey with you!”
The pair are expecting their first child just in time for Christmas.
Congratulations to the happy pair!
