McPhee is seen in the snapshot with her stomach taut in front of her in a small black two-piece. Foster added a caption to the photo, "What baby!" which didn't go down well with some of the people who saw it. "I understand what you are saying... but this post is very unhealthy." One person commented, "Not cool at all."
McPhee was also mentioned by another fan as having a history with eating disorders. She wrote, "Does she have a history or anorexia?" It's not healthy to concentrate on the body and not the soul. This post was written 10 months after McPhee welcomed Rennie David Foster into their home in February 2020. There's nothing wrong with a mom wanting to feel her best. However, Foster's post, along with Foster's caption and photo, which implied that McPhee looked better than what she went through during childbirth, really highlights how much moms are still under pressure to achieve a certain look.
Celebrities like Ashely Graham or Halsey embrace and document nearly every part of their bodies as they welcome a child. There are so many pictures of breastfeeding and stretch marks that show motherhood celebrated in a way that honors and reclaims bodily autonomy and the changes that pregnant and postpartum bodies undergo. Even though there has been significant progress in de-stigmatizing pregnancy experiences and the postpartum journeys of women, David Foster reminds us that we are under a lot more pressure than ever to achieve an ideal that is truly outdated.
