Jerika Ejercito is proud of her postnatal figure: "This body produced 3 amazing, healthy boys. and this body deserves to be loved…"


It’s been nearly four months since Jerika Ejercito gave birth to her twins, Daniel and Michael, and she is in no hurry to “bounce back” to her prenatal figure.

Posting an Instagram throwback from her recent pregnancy, Jerika has decided to take her time losing the baby weight and loving the body she has now.

She writes on her caption, “This is time I decided that things will be different. That I will make sure to take my time. That there is no need to ‘bounce back’. To love my body at every stage in my life.

“This body produced 3 amazing, healthy boys, and this body deserves to be loved and accepted by none other than myself.”

The mother of three just wants to focus on her twins and Isaiah, her son with former partner, Bernard Palanca.

Jerika continues, “This moment in my life is NOT about me, it’s not about how I lose the baby weight, it’s not how I am supposed to look.

“It’s about my boys, their need to feel loved at all times, their need for attention, and their need to be nurtured…

“Yes, I’ve got a lot of work to do and that’s ok.

“It took my body 9 months to grow not one but TWO healthy boys!

“I’ve got the battle scars and giggly parts to show for!

“And I am sure as hell proud of it!”
