The Official Guide to Posing for “HOW I GOT MY BODY BACK!” Magazine Covers

Immediately after giving birth, many celebrity moms stare into their beautiful newborn’s eyes and think:  “Oh, my gawd — I have to get ready for my ‘HOW I GOT MY BODY BACK!’ magazine shoot!”  It really should be a top priority, which is why we at The Laughing Stork have thoughtfully prepared a guide to help famous moms get ready for these all-important magazine covers.

1. DO request a healthy amount of retouching “assistance.”

2.  Do NOT remove your hands from your hips.  Ever.

3.  One exception:  You MAY remove one hand from the hip to triumphantly hoist baby in the air.  (Also be sure to note the “HOW I GOT MY BODY BACK!” uniform of choice:  a yellow bikini.)

4.  Do NOT simply the cradle the baby.  Hoist, Kendra, HOIST!  (And a blue bikini…?  Pssshhh.  Amateur.)

5.  If not in possession of a yellow bikini, DO wear a print that reflects your trademark elegance.

6.  DO benefit from a bandage dress that doesn’t allow breathing, but does flatter the figure.

7.  DO avoid the cheesiness of “HOW I GOT MY BODY BACK!” covers by being a bad-ass like Pink.
