Keke Palmer's Post-Baby Glow-Up Doesn’t Want To Set ‘Unrealistic’ Body ‘Standards’

Keke Palmer’s post-baby glow-up had captured the internet’s attention since giving birth earlier this year, but the 29-year-old mom is making it clear that she doesn’t want to set “unrealistic” body goals.

During a recent episode of her podcast, Baby, This is Keke Palmer, the Nope star opened up about the praise she’s received from her post-partum figure. “It is my job [to stay fit],” she shared with the episode’s guest — and her personal trainer — Corey Calliet. “Let’s not get crazy… I don’t want people thinking that I am setting unrealistic standards.”

Palmer used the segment to stress that as a Hollywood starlet and public figure with access to fitness training, her “snapback” was more due in part to it being her “job to look good.” However, the Nickelodeon alum doesn’t want her results to cause comparisons for her fans or new moms.

“I can afford a trainer, meal prep, and a lot of things,” she notes. “It is expensive, but I am investing in my career because it is my career to look good.”

“Not even is it my career to look good, it is my career choice to have the kind of career that I want to have,” she adds.

Since giving birth to her son Leodis Andrellton Jackson seven months ago, who she shares with Darius Jackson, Palmer emphasized that staying dedicated to her fitness routine is a “personal decision” and encourages her supporters to set their own pace and not feel compelled to meet the same goals they’ve seen her embody.

“I never want to put it on anybody. I always want to make it clear that when I am talking about fitness, health, and wellness is that your journey is your journey,” the Big Boss artist says. “You figure it out the way you can. And when you look at these celebrities and people in the industry, know that it is their job.”

In May, Palmer's trainer Corey Calliet echoed these sentiments on non-body comparisons while sharing his fitness objectives for the star exclusively with E! News.

"She's never had a thicker body. I said, 'Let's tap into that. Let's create a shape that was made by the baby,’” he shared. "It's turning things that are supposed to be looked at as negative into positive."

"Get the Keke mindset," he told the publication. "I want her to be the new face of fitness. I think it's time to have someone like her represent that lane of women in Hollywood—someone that is fit and strong."

No matter where you are on your fitness journey, it’s important to remember that it’s just that: a journey. And when it comes to Keke Palmer, it’s the glow-up for me… she’s a mom.
