Danielle Lloyd has been slammed on Instagram for posting a photo of her post-pregnancy body on Instagram only a week after giving birth.

Danielle, 33, only gave birth to her fourth son eight days ago, but she posted a photo of her post-pregnancy body on Instagram yesterday evening.

Her astonishingly flat and toned tum was met with awe by all of her followers, as many praised her for looking so amazing.

However, quite a few of her fans were not happy about it.

Danielle's post saw the mum-of-four in a cropped black top and grey skinny jeans, with the caption: "There's been a lot in the press this week about what mums who have recently given birth are 'supposed' to look like. I had my baby one week ago, and this is me. Simply me.

"I've had no time to go to the gym or diet in a week, of course I've been with my newborn. But should I really be ashamed of how I look for fear of judgement?"

She then finished with: "Should any of us even be worrying about what people think of our bodies after bringing a new life into the world? We're all on a journey, all doing our best, and all have imperfections.

"I've had four children and I'd never dream of sneering at another mum's body. Let's all start focusing on what's REALLY important, looking after our kids - and focussing on our families rather than our bodies."

And whilst many praised the mum for her empowering post, many slammed her and accused her of being "fake" and "showing off".

One wrote: "But if you're saying it's more important to look after our children than our bodies, why are posting a picture of your perfectly flat tanned stomach?? Yes you look great, but not every mum has your luck."

Another wrote: "Why gloat? Not kind," whilst one added: "It's a little insensitive to those who struggled or are even still struggling to lose baby weight."

One person wrote: "Just makes new mums feel worse about themselves as she looks so good. That is not what the majority for mum tums look like one week after giving birth. This will make a lot of new mums feel real rubbish."

One commented: "You don't realise what message you've given out just by posting this! The words you've written do not support the photo. To all the normal mums out there just unfollow or ignore her it's not real life!"

Another person wrote: "Attention seeking. No need to post this picture! Your going to put a lot of new mums and mums to be down, thinking this is how they should look after birth!"

However, some of Danielle's fans praised the former model, writing: "Wow! Well done babe," "You look amazing" and "Think you've got some very bitter, jealous people on here today Dan, you look amazing."

One hit back at the negative comments, writing: "What a bunch of nasty jealous b*tches with all the nasty comments! Scary how bitter people can be! She looks amazing no matter what the posts about... Go and get a life!!!"
