A photograph sparked mothers to show us what their post-baby bodies really look like.

After giving birth to her son Sequoia, Jade Beall posted photos of her post-birth body to show the world what a real mother's body looks like.

What happened next was remarkable.


The photo went viral, and something struck Jade: She realized mothers around the world so rarely see themselves reflected accurately in the media. She was flooded with thousands of messages from women telling their stories about their bodies, how they struggled with not fitting the norm of "beautiful," and how they felt her photo helped redefine beauty.

Jade photographed hundreds of mothers who used to feel "too saggy," "too wrinkly," and "too fat," but who now are being celebrated for who they are. Watch her video below to hear more.

NSFW: lots of beautiful bare bodies (read: nudity).

Have you ever woken up one day and wondered if you were destined to do more in your life? Or worried you didn't take that shot at your dream?

FOX's new show "The Big Leap." is here to show you that all you need to take that second chance is the confidence to do so.

Watch as a group of diverse underdogs from all different walks of life try to change their lives by auditioning for a reality TV dance show, finding themselves on an emotional journey when suddenly thrust into the spotlight. And they're not letting the fact that they don't have the traditional dancer body type, age, or background hold them back.

Unfortunately, far too many people lack this kind of confidence. That's why FOX is partnering with the Movemeant Foundation, an organization whose whole mission is to teach women and girls that fitness and physical movement is essential to helping them develop self-confidence, resilience, and commitment with communities of like-minded girls.

Sure, it's basically like having a second hand, but it also does something equally important: It totally reflects his personality. How? It's a "Transformers"-themed arm.
