Geri Horner claims young mothers are under too much pressure to get their bodies back into tip top shape quickly after giving birth.

The former Spice Girl spoke out after pop star Cheryl shared online a picture of herself displaying a toned stomach after giving birth to her first baby, son Bear, in March this year.

The artist formerly known as Ginger Spice, who is mum to daughter Bluebell and son Monty, thinks it is not realistic for most mothers to throw themselves into a dedicated exercise regime so soon after giving birth.

Appearing as a stand-in host on This Morning today, Geri admitted she was impressed by former Girls Aloud star Cheryl’s efforts, but said people should not be too hard on themselves in a bid to try and get the perfect figure.

She said: “We shouldn’t put so much pressure on women to lose weight after having a baby.”

Cheryl has been sunning herself while on holiday with her singer boyfriend Liam Payne and the couple has been sharing some snaps from their break with fans on their social media pages.

The famous pair welcomed their first child together earlier this year.

Cheryl announced the happy news by sharing a picture of Liam holding the newborn on Instagram.

She wrote at the time: “We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with out little arrival.”
