LOOK: Chynna Ortaleza proudly flaunts postpartum body

Chynna Ortaleza ended 2019 on a positive note.

In a lengthy Instagram post, Chynna shared the realities and struggles she had to face last year. 

The actress proudly flaunted her body “flaws” — the result of giving birth to two children with Calla Lily frontman and actor Kean Cipriano. She also underwent an operation to remove her gallbladder.

“Katotohanan lang. Maitim na ang kili kili ko, hindi na maayos ang kurba ng bewang ko. May stretch marks pa na regalo si Nukie Mamon,” Chynna shared. 

Two months after giving birth to their second child Salem last September, Chynna had to go back to the hospital to have her Chronic Cholecystitis treated and her gallbladder removed. 

“At pagkatapos ko siya ipanganak at alagaan ng 2 buwan balik ospital ako dahil ipinanganak ko naman ang gallbladder ko. RIP sakanya. Hindi niya na kinaya. At ubod ng sakit nun. OA. Sabi ko nga manganganak na lang ako ng 20 times kesa maramdaman ang sakit ng Chronic Cholecystitis. Sana wag niyo siyang maranasan!” she continued. 

But according to Chynna, these challenges just made her even stronger as a woman and as a person. “Kung tatanungin niyo ako mas nararamdaman ko ang lakas ko ngayon. Hindi lang bilang babae. Bilang TAO. Buhay na buhay ako at nagpapasalamat na araw araw ay may panibagong gising,” she said.

She added: “I am bombarded yet I stand. Thank you Lord sa buong 2019. Pinakamasalimuot at masakit na taon ng buhay ko. Isa rin sa pinakamaganda para sa kaluluwa ko.” 

Chynna and Kean have two children — three-year-old Stellar and three-month-old Salem.
