    Barely 24 hours after giving birth to her third child, Hilaria Baldwin posed for a mirror selfie inside the hospital bathroom sporting only lingerie.

    The 32-year-old yoga teacher, who married "30 Rock" actor Alec Baldwin in 2012, welcomed son Leonardo Ángel Charles Baldwin Monday evening. Baldwin snapped a shot to share on Instagram after removing her postpartum pads, because "there is a limit to how much you need to see," she says in the post. Baldwin wore a black and pink bra, with matching black underwear. Through the image, she said she hoped to promote body positivity and show the beauty of childbirth.

    I took this yesterday when Leonardo was about 24 hours old. I did the same thing right after Rafael was born. It always makes me a bit nervous to do something like this, but I feel that in the age of such strong body shaming, I want to do all that I can to normalize a real body and promote healthy self esteem. Many of you know that I love to show the process of life's experiences on the body and I am a firm believer in how a good diet and the right balance of exercise make us happy, healthy, and strong. So from here on, I want to dedicate the majority of my #366daysoflivingclearly #hilarialcm daily posts to getting back in shape and I invite you to do it with me ❤️🙏🏼. Common questions last time were: Did I have a c section?: No, I pushed him out Where are all the pads for bleeding?: I took them out briefly to snap this pic as there is a limit to how much you need to see 😂. Where am I?: in the hospital room bathroom #glamour Oh, and no filter. Just brightened it up a bit.

    "I feel that in the age of such strong body shaming, I want to do all that I can to normalize a real body and promote healthy self esteem," she wrote.

    That goal is nothing new for Baldwin. Throughout her last two pregnancies, she has been a vocal proponent on social media for appreciating mothers’ bodies, often publishing pregnancy photos with accompanying words about health.

    In another scantily clad Instagram post three weeks ago, Baldwin bragged that she had never been affected by stretch marks, but also cautioned those who are expecting to "embrace all that comes with these babies." 

    Her body-positive message aside, Baldwin said she's eager to lose the baby weight. In her post-delivery Instagram from Wednesday, she made it clear that she would be "getting back in shape" and invited her followers to join her as part of her #366daysoflivingclearly hashtag initiative.
