In an old Instagram post, Mariel Rodriguez opened up about how she gained a lot of weight after giving birth and became a hands-on mom to her daughter Maria Isabella Padilla. Initially, she felt low but eventually embraced her new physique.
to my glam team @mkqua @ariesmanal_hair @jotlosa thank you so much for accepting the "challenge" hahaha i know it took effort to beautify me because im fat, extra large, huge, gigantic etc (ako na magsabi para di ako masaktan pag sinabi ng iba hehe 😂) thank you for making me look decent on our triple event. i have been so reluctant in posting photos of me because lately i have not been comfortable with my weight but God willing after i breastfeed I will be back to my tip top shape 💜 again, thank you. btw, this is my real hair na no extensions i didn't realize it was this long na pala. 👩🏻 #OneTreeSouthEvents #Happy9thMonthIsabella #VivereMoments
She then posted a photo of herself and wrote, “Right now my peg is ‘Big is Beautiful’”.
