Jenna Fischer is waving the white flag when it comes to the postpartum weightloss race.

According to the first-time mom — she welcomed son Weston Lee last September — there’s a reason you did not see her showing off her body after baby on the magazine covers.

“I’m actually angered by the ‘posing in a bikini six weeks after baby’ [trend],” The Office star, 38, tells Celebuzz. “Who cares if our boobs are hanging low and we have a little more junk in the trunk?”

The focus, she explains should shift from a new mom’s figure to the joy of a baby’s birth. “We created a human being, everybody. Let’s celebrate!” she suggests.

Calling the weightloss plight “unnatural,” Fischer feels as if every mother deserves a “free pass” when it comes to her curvacious silhouette.

“There’s so much pressure on you as a new mom that the last thing you need to have hanging over your head is some expectation of what your body is supposed to look like,” she explains.

“I actually think that the scrutiny of new mothers’ bodies has gotten out of control.”
