The How to Get Away with Murder actress explained some of her journey to self-love in the post's caption: "No, this is not a pregnancy Before picture. This is the After. After days of labor. After experiencing what felt like my insides being ripped apart, no lie. After experiencing the unimaginable beauty of childbirth, this is what is left behind. This Gorgeous Body!" she wrote. 

"So in celebration of myself and my body for “Doing the Damn Thing”, I wanted to share this photo. No make-up, no editing, no filters (and you know I love a filter!)...Just Me...a woman in awe of her Body and her Baby! ♥️"
