Daphne Oz opened up to her social media followers about the realities of having a baby and the impact on  a woman’s body.

Almost two months after giving birth to third child Domenica Celine, the former The Chew co-host, 31, shared a photo of her body after baby on Instagram and Twitter Tuesday along with a stirring message to fellow new moms.

“Seven weeks post partum, still looking three months pregnant,” Oz captioned her mirror selfie in which she was dressed in a black bra and underwear.

“There is no bounce-back, it’s all onwards and upwards. every day has moments of total splendor and also a decent number of WTFs,” said the mother of three, who welcomed Domenica Celine with husband John Jovanovic on Dec. 4.

“I especially want the new mamas out there to hear that, because we see so much of how glossy motherhood can be and not enough of how real 3D life is always complicated (and better for it),” Oz wrote. “Your experience will be just right for you. prepare to be amazed by some things and horrified by others. Motherhood is as complex and wonderful as the woman.”

Also during her pregnancy with Domenica Celine, Oz frequently shared updates on her growing belly, including a nude mirror selfie.

Earlier this month, Oz, who is also mom to son Jovan Jr., 2, and daughter Philomena Bijou, 3½, celebrated her newborn turning 4 weeks old by sharing sweet mother-daughter moments from a recent photo shoot exclusively with PEOPLE.

“Domenica is such a good baby, we got really lucky,” she said. “I have to say, this time around has been a crazy transition with three under 4 years old, but even more fun because John and I get to see how obsessed our older two are with their baby sister.”

Adding, “They fight over who gets to hold her, and always want to help me with bath time or pick out her outfits — it’s the sweetest! I can’t wait to see how they all grow up together and become their own little wolf pack.”

Although Oz will certainly have her hands full with three children under 4, she revealed in her Fit Pregnancy and Baby cover story that Domenica Celine may not be her last child.

“I love being pregnant. I always joke with John that I want seven kids. We’ll see what number we actually get to,” she said.

Oprah Winfrey is continuing to pay her respects to Recy Taylor — the inspiring woman she spoke about in her powerful Golden Globes speech.

Earlier this month, the 63-year-old actress and media mogul received the 2018 Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globe Awards. Her speech was filled with somber moments, standing ovations, past memories and the story of Taylor, a Black woman who never received justice after being abducted and gang-raped by six white men in Alabama. On Dec. 28, Taylor died at age 97 in her hometown of Abbeville, Alabama.

In the weeks after she gave her speech, Winfrey was on assignment for 60 Minutes and ended up in Abbeville, where she visited Taylor’s grave.

“I don’t believe in coincidences, but if I did this would be a powerful one. On assignment for @60minutes I end up in the town of Abbeville where #RecyTaylor suffered injustice, endured and recently died. (GGspeech),” Winfrey captioned a photo shared to Instagram Tuesday of herself standing beside Taylor’s flower-adorned grave.

“To be able to visit her grave so soon after ‘speaking her name ‘sharing her story, a woman I never knew. Feels like🙏🏾☁❤” she wrote.

At age 24, Taylor was walking home from Rock Hill Holiness Church for a Pentecostal service in Abbeville on the night of Sept. 3, 1944, when six white men abducted and raped her, the New York Times reported in Taylor’s obituary. They forced Taylor into a green Chevrolet, blindfolded her and forced her to remove her clothes. The group’s leader Herbert Lovett instructed her to “act just like you do with your husband or I’ll cut your damn throat” before he and five other men raped her in the car.

After Taylor was tossed out of the car, the county sheriff arrived and though Taylor couldn’t identify her assailants, her description of the car matched that of one of her rapists. That man then identified the other assailants, though he insisted the men paid Taylor and did not rape her. The next day white vigilantes set her porch on fire, forcing Taylor, her husband, Willie Guy Taylor, and their 3-year-old daughter Joyce Lee to move in with Taylor’s father. The NAACP sent Rosa Parks, then a young activist, to investigate the case, which eventually went to trial. However, the all-white, all-male grand jury decided not to indict the men.

The case received widespread coverage in the black press, and activists (W. E. B. DuBois and Mary Church Terre were two of the most prominent ones to take up her cause) urged Gov. Chauncey Sparks to investigate. He did and a second grand jury received the case in 1945, but still refused to indict the men, four of whom admitted to having sex with Taylor.

In 2011, the Alabama Legislature apologized, calling the decision not to prosecute her assailants “morally abhorrent and repugnant.” The Alabama Legislature presented to Taylor an apology letter on Mother’s Day that year at the Pentecostal church, known presently as Abbeville Memorial Church of God in Christ, where she was coming from the night she was raped in 1944.

In Winfrey’s speech, she referenced the Golden Globes’ support for the Time’s Up initiative and noted of Taylor’s rapists, “Their time is up. And I just hope that Recy Taylor died knowing that her truth, like the truth of so many other women who were tormented in those years and even now tormented, goes marching on.”

It was a night full of gold, glitz and glamor for Stranger ThingsCharlie Heaton and Natalia Dyer.

The Netflix costars-turned-couple attended the National Television Awards — Britain’s TV awards event where all winners are chosen by viewers — in London, England, together on Tuesday, where the duo walked the red carpet ahead of the show.

For the night out, Dyer, 21, donned a sleeved and shimmery floor-length rose gold gown while Heaton, 23, sported a black suit which he paired with a white, button-up shirt.

During the show — held at The O2 arena — the pair was all smiles as they took the stage together to present an award.

Last month, the couple — they star as love interests Jonathan Byers and Nancy Wheeler on the Netflix hit — also traded their on-camera ’80s garb for red carpet glam when they attended the 2017 Fashion Awards at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

The pair’s most recent appearance comes comes a year after they were spotted jetting out of Los Angeles International Airport together in January and nearly three months after Heaton was detained at LAX for alleged cocaine possession.

Heaton was denied entry into the United States in October and sent back to the United Kingdom the same day, a law enforcement official confirmed to PEOPLE. Authorities allegedly found cocaine on the actor as he arrived into the country. He was detained, but not arrested.

“My planned travel to the U.S. last week was affected by an issue at U.S. immigration, and I am working to rectify it as soon as possible,” he said in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE. “I do want to clarify that I was not arrested or charged with a crime, and cooperated fully with the U.S. officials at LAX.”
