Entertainment gossip and news from Newsweek’s network of contributors

Suki Waterhouse gave birth to her daughter with Robert Pattinson four months ago — and stars and fans alike can’t get over the poolside postpartum photos the actress just posted.

The Daisy Jones & the Six star, 32, took to Instagram on Tuesday, July 9, to share a series of photos of herself and friends, all clad in swimwear and lounging by the pool. Waterhouse, for her part, wore a red string bikini that showed off her postpartum figure.

“Not enough time in the world for the amount of berries and books I wish to consume 🍓,” the singer captioned the instagram carousel.

Everyone was stunned.

“Miss Suki HOW do you look that good after birthing a whole a** child,” one person wondered.

“How does one look like that after birth. I swear she teleported the baby out 🙌,” another commented.

“Did you even have a baby orrrrr,” a third follower remarked.

“If i don’t look this good after having a baby i’ll sue,” someone else quipped.

Even celebrities were awestruck by Waterhouse’s latest Instagram upload.

“Perfect perfect !!” Tallulah Willis gushed.

“Oh,” simply wrote singer Ashe.

Paris Hilton and Liz Phair used emojis to express their reactions, with the Simple Life alum commenting a heart-eye emoji and the “Why Can’t I” artist responding with a starry-eyed emoji and a red heart.

Others made the point that everyone “bounces back from baby” differently — and the comparison is only harmful.

“Can everyone stop commenting on her body like everyone is different and there is no reason to compare yourselves,” one person noted.

Waterhouse, for her part, recently posed with her little one on the August 2024 cover of British Vogue. “What an honor to be on the cover of @britishvogue with the most perfect girl in the world 💕,” she captioned a series of images from the shoot.

In the profile, Waterhouse revealed that she and Pattinson “really planned this,” adding: “We were as ready as we were going to be.”

Still, Waterhouse revealed, even she was worried about her postpartum body during the Vogue shoot.

“I definitely think, ‘Oh, I’m shooting the cover of Vogue and I’m 25 pounds heavier than I normally am right now,’ but it’s also like, ‘Who gives a f***?’ It is what it is,” Waterhouse told the publication before adding: “The boobs are so fun.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the British star — who has been dating Pattinson since 2018 — made a rare comment on her “dark and difficult” split from ex Bradley Cooper, whom she dated from 2013 to 2015.

“When something very public happens to you and the story behind it is dark and difficult, and you’re actually not doing well, and you can’t explain yourself to the world, that’s very isolating,” she told the publication.

As for her bond with the Twilight star, 38, Waterhouse loves seeing Pattinson step into the role of a father.

“For someone who’s quite an anxious person, he’s been very calm,” Waterhouse told Vogue. “I mean a dad and his daughter? It’s an actual love story.”
