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 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.
