Zoë Foster Blake on self-identity after giving birth

She gave birth to her second child, daughter Rudy Hazel, in July last year. 

And author and beauty guru Zoë Foster Blake spoke candidly on post-baby identity, in a candid Instagram post on Friday.

A close-up snap that saw the 37-year-old sporting a new look, consisting of natural curls and a full fringe was captioned in part: ‘My New Me arrived today!’ 

‘My New Me arrived today!’ Zoë Foster Blake, 37, spoke candidly on post-baby identity in an Instagram post on Friday, after giving birth to six-month-old daughter Rudy Hazel

‘After pregnancy, and giving birth, and being tethered to your delightful sprog for months upon months, you begin to yearn for your pre-baby identity to return. Any identity, actually. [I’d take Gary two doors down],’ Zoë began.

‘Who IS this person, chained to the house, eating granola for dinner, smattered with stale breastmilk? Enough! Enough. Old You™️ is no more, and this new mum phase can’t hang around forever, so it must be time for New You™️. 

‘It could take three months, or three years, but my god you’ve earned a bit of self-care and probably some new shoes. New You™️ signals to the world that you’re back, you’re better than ever, and you’re not to be f***ed with, actually. 

‘My New Me™️ arrived today! Features include my natural, air-dried curls, zero styling, the fringe I’ve wanted since 2015, cup holders, and duh, 500 selfies. Thank you, @hairbylaurenm, and thank you Flashdance/Dirty Dancing/Hot Shots Part Deux for the inspo,’ the author went on to say. 

The media personality delighted in her ‘New Me’ writing: ‘Features include my natural, air-dried curls, zero styling, the fringe I’ve wanted since 2015, cup holders, and duh, 500 selfies’ 

The image shared with Zoë’s 642,000 Instagram followers saw the mother-of-two in profile, sporting a black singlet top and drawing attention to natural curls, a full fringe and a blemish-free visage.  

Zoë’s candid post comes before she shared a heartfelt Instagram snap of three generations of women in her family.

The beauty posed alongside her mum Gerda and her six-month-old daughter Rudy wearing a jumpsuit with the words: ‘THE FUTURE IS FEMALE’ emblazoned on the front.
