All The INSANE Snapbacks We Didn’t See Coming In 2017

All The INSANE Snapbacks We Didn’t See Coming In 2017

These hot mamas got snatched to the gawds!

Published December 15th

The word “snapback” is a loaded term because it can mean different things depending on who ask. But we define it as a woman whose confidence after giving birth is infectious. She’s proud of her body and ready to show it off to the world. Celebs, like regular folk, have different results — some get super fit,  some get skinty like never before and others gain a little more cushion for the pushin’ — either way we’re her to celebrate all the snapbacks that had us talking in 2017.

  1. Janet Jackson started From the Bottom, Now She's Here

    All 2016,  Janet was serving baggy black ‘fits that looked super cozy but did little to show off her bump or curves. But at the top of January, at 50 years old, the music icon dropped baby Eissa Al Mana and all that baby weight flaunting a figure we hadn’t seen since her epic tour days — then she went her State of the World Tour! #Legendary

  2. Beyoncé's Snapback Gave Us 'Thickonce'

    We didn’t get to see too much of Bey’s belly when she was pregnant with Blue Ivy, so it was nice to see her bump in full-effect when pics from the Carter’s Push Party were released. Remember this time she was carrying twice the load?

    Then the same day she posted the world’s first look at her and Jay-Z’s twins, Rumi and Sir Carter, she also posted pics solo dolo, looking thicker than ever. There’s a lot more of Beyoncé to go around now, and that’s something we can all celebrate!

  3. Joseline Hernandez Got Snatched Like Never Before

    Her daughter, Bonnie Bella, hasn’t even turned one yet, and the Puerto Rican princess debuted rock hard abs thanks to online workout program Results In 28 Days. She flossed her 65-pound snapback on the ‘Gram in this post!

  4. Serena Williams Took Pregnancy Like a Champ

    Serena showed off her very pregnant bod at six-months along on the cover of Vanity Fair. This is after winning the Australian Open while pregnant earlier this year.

    No surprise here! The new mom’s waist was snatched just weeks after delivering little Alexis Olympia.

  5. Eniko Hart's Itty Bitty Bump and Snapback Were Equally Miraculous

    Kevin Hart’s wife gained only 22 pounds during her pregnancy with baby Kenzo Kash, and that was amid a cheating scandal. We guess she doesn’t believe in stress eating.


    But it seems like the Harts worked it out, and Eniko showed off a post-baby bod that says, “I ain’t worried about nothing.”

  6. Ciara Shows Off Her Post-Preggo 'Goodies'

    Ciara showed off her goodies, err, we mean her baby bump, looking like she came straight out of an ad for Calvin Klein.

    She gradually shared her snapback progress after giving birth to her daughter with Russell Wilson, Sienna Princess, and then she sprang up on the ‘Gram lookin’ like this. We see you, CiCi!

  7. Pharrell's Wife, Helen Lasichanh, Snapbacked x3

    It’s hard to see Helen’s snapback since she usually prefers her clothing a little looser, but she gave birth to three boys with Pharrell Williams earlier this year and was red-carpet ready before the end of 2017. That takes skills!

  8. Keshia Knight Pulliam Pulled Off Her Post-Preggo Bod Like a Pro

    The Cosby Show alum gave birth her first child, Ella Grace Hartwell, this year, but before she welcomed the baby girl, she showed off a massive bump on Instagram.


    And although she divorced Ella’s father this year as well, she was spotted stuntin’ for the ‘Gram in a bikini while on vacay living her best life.


    No filter, no photoshop, no funny business... just me.

  9. Zoe Saldana's 'Snapback' Was the One We Never Saw coming

    The actress was doing pretty impressive spins while promoting her film Live By Night, while she should have been pregnant with her third son. Although we never saw a baby bump, Zoe welcomed baby Zen about a month later without anyone ever knowing she was expecting.

    While the world may never know if she actually carried Zen or used a surrogate (the actress has yet to make a statement), mommyhood looks good on her, regardless. Here she is sashaying onto the the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards a couple weeks later!


    Sorry for my face being cutoff, but isn't this dress killer??!! Hahaha #KCA #GOTGv2 @kcanickelodeon
