(audience cheering)
– She was featured on this month’s cover of Health magazine. And it’s the first un-retouched cover in the magazine’s history. (audience applauds and cheers) So let’s talk about your cover. I mean, is it hard? Because everything nowadays is
so filtered and so retouched. Was it hard and scary, especially six months
after you’re having a baby? – Oh, it was so scary. And leading up, I was still breast feeding
when I did this shoot. And I was just freaking
out the whole time– – That part was probably good because they’re real full (laughs) – I didn’t need the help. – Oh, some of us do, Kate. (audience laughs) – I didn’t need any extra. No. But you know, un-retouched is actually really hard for everybody
on set, I noticed. The makeup artist and the hair stylist, everyone’s like, “Oh my God! “What are we gonna do with
her bruise on her knee? “Who’s gonna cover it? “The makeup’s not covering it!” Everything’s very stressful. And doing it in natural lighting adds that very real element as well. – Boy, natural lighting is not my friend. (audience laughs) – That’s such a lie.
– I like a soft, amber dim light.
– Stop! (audience laughs) No, but it was really
important for me to do this. Because we’re on Instagram all the time, and we see people
Photoshopping everything. You’re like, when does it end? And when you’re scrolling on Instagram, you constantly compare
yourself to these other people. And for me, I wanted to take a step back and show a real moment of someone who actually
is six months postpartum, is not being Photoshopped. And be that real person and real influence for other people.
– I love it. (audience applauds)
I think it’s awesome. We have four kids, and two of them are teenagers. One’s almost a teenager. And literally it’s so hard on social media because everybody compares you. And if you don’t get enough likes, it cancels something out. It’s like everything has to
be validated in social media, and everything is filtered, so I think it’s really cool that you’re such a, I mean, you’re a super model. So all these girls look up to you. Especially like, it’s really cool that you’re
brave and okay to do it. – Yeah, and why are we
comparing our bodies post partum to all these Photoshopped? When we should be admiring our bodies that we even created life! – Creating humans.
– Conversation should change! (audience cheers and applauds) – Like, created central nervous systems. – Exactly!
– You’re welcome. – Give ourselves a little
bit more time to bounce back. We don’t need to do it two months. – I’m in the middle of bouncing. (audience and Kate laughs) No, but even before the
Health magazine cover though, people always used to say that you’re too curvy. Which I’m like, “I wish I was Kate Upton, the super curvy “super model.” Is that nuts to you? – When it was first happening, obviously it was really hard, ’cause I was like, “I work out all the time. “Why is everyone calling me fat?” And now the conversation
has completely changed and people are like, “What? When did people say that?” And that just shows how
the industry’s changing, how our voice matters, and things can change. We mean something.
(audience applauds) We can change something. – Have you connected with other women because of this cover? – Yes! You know, because of this cover I actually started a hashtag, #sharestrong just on Instagram to create a community where we could all share our real selves, or what continues to motivate us to continue being strong. And a lot of people are
posting no makeup selfies, or their stories. It’s so great to go on that hashtag and get inspiration from
all these other women. Because we’re so strong. And to be able to share
in each other’s strength is what makes women so amazing. – Absolutely. (audience applauds)
And also, it’s, people don’t realize even if you’re a woman
and you’ve never had kids, there’s so much going on
after you have a baby. Not only your body is just giving up, but your emotional state is kinda crazy. So somebody talking to someone that’s just had a baby in a photo shoot saying, “You need to loosen,” that will send you in a spiral. – Oh yeah. The hormones are crazy. And no one talks about it. The hormones after pregnancy, for me, were crazier than when I was pregnant. And it took forever for them to calm down. Months after breast feeding. I might still be hormonal. (Kelly laughs) – No, here’s my best, this is my best story. So I was, I freaked out. ’cause I had to, I was pumping because I was
working at the same time– – Which is the worst! – Pumping is the worst!
– The worst! – It’s so painful, I don’t care what anyone says. Anyway, but somebody had kinda tossed out, and it was only a tiny bit of breast milk left in the bottle.
– No. No! – I lost my ever living, like a crazy person. Went in my closet and just (cries) collapsed on the floor and was crying. ’cause I was like, “You have no idea how
hard I worked for that!” (audience laughs) And really, there was like
nothing in the bottle. I’m crazy. But literally, it’s just a hormonal period and I don’t think people
take that into account, especially when we’re
women in the public eye. Like, it is a hard time. – And our energy is literally
being sucked out of us so you don’t feel like yourself. – Literally, it’s being sucked out of us. – Literally, it’s being sucked out of you. It is so difficult. And something people
need to talk about more. – I 100%, I talk about it any chance I can. (audience laughs) I complain about pregnancy
and all that any chance I can. It’s beautiful, and I love my children, and you love your child.
– Yes. – But here’s my thing. Your share strong is your daughter, right? – Yes. – So how is she your share strong? I love that. – Well you know, I want to be the example she can look up to. And I want to create
a happy, healthy world for her to grow up in. – Yeah, of course. We actually have a mom here today who was inspired by Kate. Say hello to Alex. (audience applauds and cheers) You look beautiful.
– [Kate] Beautiful. – Like, the red lip with the red skirt, I’m into it. So what do you want to say to Kate? – I’m Alex, I’m a new mom, and I just want to say thank you. When I was pregnant, I was a little over, I mean before I was pregnant, I was a little over 100 pounds, and I’m ashamed to admit it, but I was so afraid to gain weight and what I would look like. And then I got pregnant, and I found out I was having a baby girl. And I knew that if I wanted her to love herself that it had to start with me. I loved being pregnant, I loved the big belly. But then towards the end I started getting those
nervous feelings again. Like, what am I gonna look like? Will I still be strong? What will people think? And I had her, and I loved my body. But then I saw you on the cover of Health, and un-retouched and it was so inspiring. It made me realize like, I don’t owe anybody pretty
or perfect or skinny. (audience applauds and cheers)
Or anything. And to just be an example for my daughter and to just be someone she can look up to and be strong for my daughter is the best thing that I could be. And you don’t know how
many people you’ve touched, so just thank you so much. – Thank you. We’re all on our own journeys, it’s so important for us to share them. Thank you so much. – Thank you. – I mean, what do you think about that? There’s got to be so many women, especially in the field that you’re in, that you touch like that. – No, it means so much to me, because you know, when you hear all the criticism sometimes you’re like, “Why am I doing this?” And stories like that I realize, this is exactly why I’m doing this and we’re all in it together. And we’re all experiencing it together. So thank you so much for sharing that. (audience applauds) – And beauty is many things. My favorite thing is, why I think you’re so
beautiful coming out, yes aesthetically you’re beautiful, but you have a certain
confidence about you. And I love, I think confidence is so sexy. It’s the sexiest thing
on a man or a woman. I think just be happy, be confident, and you’ll exude it. – Yeah, but we all go
through our ups and downs. We don’t all feel confident all the time. But it’s working, getting back to that confident
place, that’s so important. And that journey there. – Yes, I love you!

    I understand the nice intention behind unretouched photo shoots, but when they're done by beautiful people with perfect skin, I don't really think it does anything to encourage people who are self-conscious and compare themselves to others. If anything, I think looking really beautiful in an untouched photo will make people who wouldn't look as good feel worse. Kate Upton is talking about how makeup artists were worried about a bruise on her leg when there are so many people in the world with bad acne, stretch marks, scars, discoloration, rashes, etc. How is seeing a gorgeous woman with near-perfect skin going to make most people in the world feel better about themselves?

    Having said that, I am not one of those people who is never satisfied. I realize kids today are comparing their actual faces and bodies to what people photoshop, essentially trying to obtain the impossible. But I also see the reasoning behind photoshopping imperfections. Everybody likes to see themselves look their best and photography is often about beauty and a perfect shot. I don't have an issue whether you want to photoshop pictures or not. What I do have a problem with is someone hiding their attempts to flaunt their natural beauty behind a "noble cause" that will produce more insecurities in the already insecure, not less.

    So she's not a bimbo, she has a brain. Ads and photos had me thinking otherwise for a long time. Plus the way some guys and even girls talk about her is so objectifying. She's clearly a driven, intelligent human. No wonder Kelly invited her.

    Why is it that humans are the only species that need to be congratulated for creating life, giving birth and carrying children. Every other species does it too, some have it worse! But yet humans need to be made to feel good about doing it. It's curious is all.

    the woman with the red lips is me. i am not 100,; have never been over 100,; and i am terrified to have a baby for weight gain reasons. i want to have a child and i feel the joy of being a mother and giving my kindness and positivity to a child and raising a child – however the thought of gaining weight terrifies me.
    if i’m not small – what will i be.? all i’ve ever been my whole life is “little linsey” literally that’s what everyone calls me and if i gain weight who would i be.?…

    I'm kinda sick of hearing about pregnancies and how difficult they are. I commend her for doing the photos untouched and having kids but like do we need this long of an interview about it? I don't have kids & maybe I have a hard time relating, but does it have to be a constant conversation?

    If she was considered fat what does the modeling industry think of Ashley graham???? She's a freaking mountain or bigger. Glamorizing obesity like she does is not a good thing. She's supposedly pregnant unless she's just gaining weight and getting fatter and not really pregnant. Ashley is beautiful but should not be showing her stomach. I am straight as fuck (i am married with four kids) and would rather see Kate's stomach instead of ashley's. Ashley is the fat one not Kate. Kate knows when to quit eating and is healthy. Ashley is only gorgeous when her stomach is covered. When her stomach is showing I wanna vomit from the jiggle. Nobody wants to see that shit

    This is parts loveliness and parts awkwardness. Kelly ~really~ needs to stop making everything 'bout her and Kate needs to loosen up and laugh a little. LOL That aside, even though she has a bit of a piercing and frightening gaze, Kate is really very pretty. ^-^
