Witney Carson gave fans some insight into how her recovery from childbirth is going. 

On Instagram, the Dancing With the Stars pro shared a photo of her holding her newborn son Leo, her first child with husband Carson McAllister.

"Finally wearing real clothes but still in a diaper," she wrote in the caption of the photo, along with a crying-laughing emoji, "healing from a birth is no joke! So proud of this body and what it went through to bring this angel boy into this world. We are absolutely in love with you little Leo."

One thing to note, it's common for people to wear adult diapers or pads in the weeks following birth. People in the comments applauded Witney for her candor.

"I just had our 3rd daughter 4 weeks ago and it's amazing what our bodies can do," one follower wrote. "Leo is adorable. Congrats!!!"

"Girl yes!!" another added. "Birth and pregnancy does a number on our bodies!!! But it's all worth it!!"

A third said, "Good for you for being real and honest. It is appreciated. Hugs!"

Leo, whose full name is Kevin Leo McAllister and is named after Witney's late father-in-law, was born on Jan. 4, 2021.

Witney announced that she was expecting her first child in August 2020 with an excited Instagram post of her showing off her pregnancy test. 


"Baby McAllister coming Jan 2021!!!!! We can't even contain our excitement and joy right now," Witney posted. "We found out together with @clearblue, which was so surreal and special! Getting our results in words made this whole thing that much more real! We love this little bean so much already and we can't wait to start this beautiful chapter in our lives! #15weekspregnant #mcallisterbaby."


Despite the challenges, it seems Witney and Carson couldn't be more excited to be parents.
