Katharine McPhee has reacted to the backlash following her husband, David Foster’s comments about her post-baby body.
The 72-year-old songwriter shared a photo of the singer lounging in a black bikini while vacationing in Hawaii on Wednesday. Foster captioned the photo “what a baby!” in reference to McPhee giving birth to their son in February.
Fans slammed the caption for reinforcing the idea that women need to “pull themselves together” after giving birth. The 37-year-old responded to the criticism in a separate post, insisting the couple are “not sorry” for the photo.
“I’m sorry, but we’re not sorry. And for all of you who can’t deal with it, maybe this helps. I struggled with the weight in my 20s and 30s,” he said. explained the songwriter. “I’ve been up and down 10 times. Does that make you feel better? There’s nothing wrong with that – most people do.”
McPhee insisted she lost her baby weight “without a diet” and with “no pressure from anyone”. She said she found a “great workout” and let her body “do its thing” from there.
“And guess what? I’ll probably gain weight at some point too,” the singer continued. “Who cares? BUT people freaking out about what my hubby captioned seriously have a life…Stop being so offended by what people post that has no impact on your life and move on.”
The Over It hitmaker suggested the commenters could change their attitude, adding, “Maybe you should have more of an attitude like, say… ‘Oh that’s good, he thinks his wife is sexy’. I can’t with this overly sensitive society right now. But as Taylor Swift said, haters gon’ hate (laughing emoji).”
