British singer/songwriter Jessie J clapped back at social media users who made presumptuous comments about her body after recently giving birth to her first son.

In January, Jessie J announced she was pregnant with her first child after dating professional basketball player Chanan Colman since 2021.

They welcomed their son, Sky Safir Cornish Colman, in May.

While most of her fans congratulated her with lovely comments, some of her followers were not so pleasant.

She had mentioned specific commenters who gave their unsolicited observation that was pretty much body-shaming.

On Tuesday, the "It's My Party" singer wrote on Instagram story:

“Couple of people have said to me, ‘I bet you can’t wait to get your body back.'"
"My reply is...'I don't want to go back.'"
"'That body is gone. I want my body to go forward. I'm getting my body forward."
"That's the vibe ladies.

She ended by encouraging them to:

"Embrace that bowdddddy!"
