Kenya Moore is celebrating quarantine weight gain. The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, 49, updated her Instagram ahead of the weekend with a massive shout-out to positive body-image – Kenya’s photo celebrated the scales going up, not down, as she flaunted her fantastic figure in a stunning peach dress. The Bravo face, who made headlines in 2019 for her “snap-back” post-baby body, is now flying the flag for curves, although fans might well think the weight gain still puts her on the slim side. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo. Kenya, who welcomed first daughter Brooklyn Doris Daly in November 2018, had posted a red hot shot. It showed the reality star posing confidently and wearing a ruched, but nonetheless very tight, minidress with bandeau fabrics and a hip-hugging finish. The one-sleeved number, also grazing Kenya’s thighs, showed off some hip, with Kenya fully glammed-up and photographed with her hair waving down her shoulders.
A caption from the star addressed her 2 million followers with a little positivity.
Keep scrolling for the photo. Kenya wrote: “183 lbs!!! The Quarantine has added 25lbs to my 5’10” frame. I don’t mind if you don’t mind ?? #lovetheskinyourein.”
The post, now approaching 50,000 likes, has brought in nothing but positivity over in the comments section. Actress Viola Davis leads the way with her reply – “183 looks fabulous!!!” she wrote, with over 680 others agreeing. Kenya was also thanked by fans for getting real and doing the opposite of the industry standard. Check out the replies below.
A comment racking up over 300 likes came from a fan themselves having struggled with their weight over COVID.
“I gained weight too and right around your number. I was so upset I literally cried because I had spent the last 2 years or so working really hard to drop 20 lbs and thanks to the pandemic it all came back in 6 months.”
The gushing fan opened with a giant “thank you” and closed by saying Kenya looks “amazing as always.”
Kenya did seem to see fans envious of how she shapes up at 183 pounds. “I wish MY 183 looked like that….im 5’6″ and should be 165 at my best….im a mess!!! You inspire me!” one wrote.
Kenya has opened up on her weight in the past. Her 2019 side-by-side photos, sparking the “snap-back” comments, saw the star say she “gained so much weight” by carrying her baby. Her weight-loss regime at the time was including Vegan Protein from Body Complete RX – it was meal replacements all the way as Moore guzzled 20g of protein per portion to “feel like me again!”
