From Kate Middleton to Khloe Kardashian, there have been so many celebrities who welcomed babies so far in 2018.

While they have fame and motherhood in common, there's another thing that almost every new A-list moms have spoken out about: postpartum weight loss.

Many mothers often feel pressured by society to shed the pounds they've gained during pregnancy as soon as the baby arrives, and it's even worse when you're a celebrity.

"It's so unfair though, because it's so celebrated," actress and mom-of-two Blake Lively said on Sunrise, an Australian talk show. "It's like, this is what someone can look like after a baby. I think a woman's body after having a baby is pretty amazing … You don't need to be Victoria's Secret-ready right away because you just did the most incredible miracle that life has to offer. I mean, you gave birth to a human being! So I would really like to see that celebrated."

Just recently, Khloe updated curious fans about her "bounce back" progress since giving birth to her daughter True Thompson in April.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star revealed that she has already lost 33 pounds, but she is still far from reaching her goal weight.

Khloe spilled the beans about how she shed the pounds, saying that it is a "combination of breastfeeding and being very active during and after my pregnancy."

While many people applauded her for her efforts, there are many moms who don't have the means or time to achieve similar success. This is why so many women found it refreshing to hear about how the Duchess of Cambridge got rid of the baby weight and continues to stay fit after three babies.

It's no secret that Kate is a super mom. She manages to raise her children and carry out all her official royal duties (including international trips) while looking perfectly primped and polished.

Despite all the work she does, the focus usually tends to be on the royal's body and it has been a hot topic of conversation. Some wonder what fitness routine or diet kept her looking like she never had a baby, while others criticized her for getting back into shape too quickly.

She finally put all speculation to rest when she revealed that being a mother is what is whipping her into shape.

"I am running after my kids," Kate said in reply to a question about losing weight after having her babies. According to Hello!, the question was asked by a guest during a 2016 garden party in New Delhi, India, to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday.

This is definitely a fact that every mom can relate to. Parenting is no easy task, and it involves a lot of chasing after children, which is enough to burn extra calories.

In Kate's case, not only was she keeping the children in check during Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding in May, she reportedly drops off her eldest son Prince George, 5, to school, and even did it a day after giving birth in April!

She was once again spotted running after George and Princess Charlotte, 3, at their dad Prince William's polo match in June. According to People, she was hoping to tire them out before they drove home.

"She seemed to say to, 'First to the polo field is the winner!'" a source told the magazine.

Spending quality time and playing with her children, especially outside, is something the duchess has always advocated for.

"Spending quality time together is such an important aspect of family life and for me, as a mother, it is the simple family moments like playing outside together that I cherish," she wrote in an open letter for Children's Hospice Week in May.

We're sure Kate tries to maintain a balanced diet and does take the time to exercise, but it's nice to know that she isn't relying on any unnatural methods, fad diets or other weight loss gimmicks.
