Krystal Nielson Gets Real About 'Embracing' Her Post-Pregnancy Curves
Yas, mama! Krystal Nielson took to Instagram this weekend to let Bachelor Nation know that she is “embracing” her post-pregnancy curves.
“Got a cute new workout outfit and decided to snap some pics... But rather than try to hide my curves.. I am embracing them,” wrote the Bachelor Nation star, who welcomed daughter Andara Rose with boyfriend Miles Bowles on March 31.
In Krystal’s slideshow of photos, the new mom is seen showing off her bare midriff in an orange athleisure set. In one snapshot, she proudly squeezes her belly.
“I will not erase this chapter of my journey and act as if my body never changed… Because She did,” the gorgeous fitness coach continued. “And I am proud of her. And I love her even more than ever before because of it. So let’s embrace and celebrate our bodies!!”

Krystal’s candid post comes just days after she opened up about the “overwhelming” challenges of acclimating to first-time motherhood.
“Today has been a tough day,” she admitted via social media. “Andara has started her 3 week cluster feeding so Miles and I have barely slept the past 3 days. Ohh how I miss those 10 hour sleeps...even when I was 9 months pregnant!”
Krystal added, “I’m still trying to figure out a routine with a newborn- but it seems once I land one- her needs change and we start over. While all this is really overwhelming (primarily bc of sleep deprivation) deep down my heart is so fulfilled and happy... mom emotions are full swing over here.”
Krystal — who split from husband and fellow “Bachelor in Paradise” alum Chris Randone in February 2020 after eight months of marriage — announced in November that she was pregnant. She and Miles, who live together in Southern California, began dating in the spring of 2020 after meeting through a mutual friend.
