New mum Aja Naomi King celebrates her post-baby body in empowering post

New mum Aja Naomi King is celebrating her post-baby body in an empowering post on social media.

The How to Get Away with Murder star took to Instagram to not only reveal that she had become a mother, but showcased her figure as she posed in her underwear with her arms in the air.

"No, this is not a pregnancy Before picture. This is the After. After days of labor. After experiencing what felt like my insides being ripped apart, no lie. After experiencing the unimaginable beauty of childbirth, this is what is left behind," the actress candidly wrote.

"This Gorgeous Body! So in celebration of myself and my body for 'Doing the D**n Thing', I wanted to share this photo. No make up, no editing, no filters (and you know I love a filter!)...Just Me...a woman in awe of her Body and her Baby (sic)!" King added.

While the star didn't share any details about her new baby, she was inundated with messages of support from her famous friends.

"Agree! Grateful to our bodies!!!!!" fellow mum Eva Longoria wrote, while Eternals star Gemma Chan commented: "Congrats and love to you all".

King announced her exciting pregnancy news in March, and opened up about previously suffering two devastating miscarriages.

"I really can't begin to express the fullness of our immense joy to be welcoming a baby into our family," she posted at the time. "With that I also want to express that this beautiful journey has not been devoid of heartbreak. This is my beautiful little rainbow baby."
