She welcomed a healthy child last week and couldn’t be more thrilled. However, her joy was short-lived.

Kramer now says that she was attacked on social media for her postpartum body.

Over the weekend, the mother of two shared a seemingly innocuous photo posing alongside her husband.

Fans were quick to point out that she looked thin even though it had only been days since she’d given birth. Some accused her of having a tummy tuck, Kramer said.

There was so much backlash that the “Dancing With the Stars” alumna took to Instagram the following day in order to address the rumors.

Kramer posted a photo showing off her postpartum belly, alongside a lengthy message calling out her critics.

The new mom wrote, in part:

A few things because honestly I’m so frustrated and I need to vent this. I wanted to post this photo (showing my stomach) because I wanted to show my journey back to healthy and my goodness I’m so glad I didn’t which is why this photo is now cropped. It’s amazing the comments and how rude some people can be from my last photo I took yesterday.

A few things because honestly I’m so frustrated and I need to vent this. I wanted to post this photo (showing my stomach) because I wanted to show my journey back to healthy and my goodness I’m so glad I didn’t which is why this photo is now cropped. It’s amazing the comments and how rude some people can be from my last photo I took yesterday. A few things, no I didn’t get a tummy tuck, no I don’t have a personal chef, no I don’t have fortunes so I didn’t train everyday. Yes I had a c section, yes I am still in pain and on meds but I do have a high pain tolerance. I have had 3 stomach surgeries before this (appendix, gallbladder, and c section).. In that photo I had a belly bandit wrapped tightly, and high waisted pants and wow here I am defending myself. Why?!? If I would have posted the photo of my actual stomach in this photo I would have probably been shamed too even when I was wanting to be vulnerable with my journey. Why do we women have to compare ourselves to each other and then shame?. I say this to myself as much as I say this to y’all…why can’t it be that we are all different. Our bodies are all beautiful and crafted differently, they heal different, they react different, they simply look different. Why do we need to shame someone for not looking a certain way? Or feel bad about ourselves for looking a certain way? Can we be kinder to ourselves and know that every women has a different journey but yet we are all beautiful? Can we lift women up but not tear yourself down in the process with comparing? Let’s give that a try…..I love y’all. Back to my baby.

Kramer continued on to explain why her belly wasn’t showing in the original photo she posted:

A few things, no I didn’t get a tummy tuck, no I don’t have a personal chef, no I don’t have fortunes so I didn’t train every day. Yes I had a c section, yes I am still in pain and on meds but I do have a high pain tolerance. I have had 3 stomach surgeries before this (appendix, gallbladder, and c section). In that photo I had on a belly bandit wrapped tightly, and high waisted pants and wow here I am defending myself. Why?!!

The country singer said that if she posted a photo showing her full stomach, she would have been shamed for that also. Kramer wrote:

Why do we women have to compare ourselves to each other and then shame? Our bodies are all beautiful and created differently, they heal different, they react different, they simply look different. Why do we need to shame someone for not looking a certain way? Or feel bad about ourselves for looking a certain way?

She concluded by saying that women should try and lift each other up and that she is now shifting her focus back to her son, Jace.

Despite the rocky week on social media, it seems Kramer’s baby has been healthy and happy since he arrived.

    Her FB Post was totally what a lot of people need to hear! These attacks by faceless bullies on social media are ridiculous! No wonder the suicide rate is rising, and social skills and empathy are declining in this country! I tell my teenage daughter all the time that social media is not a good place to be if you want to develop and flourish as a well-adjusted young lady. I don’t allow her on it, and don’t use it much myself, and keep my FB page private with “friends only”. I also tell her that no one can hurt you unless they matter to you, and if someone hurts you to make themselves feel better, they shouldn’t matter to you or anyone else! With that being said, there’s a lot of people that prove every day on social media that they don’t matter at all! LOL!
