Giovanna Fletcher

Wearing a bathing suit or a bikini can be quite a daunting experience for many women.

We can’t help but feel exposed and self-conscious about the parts of our body that we aren’t too fond of. Giovanna Fletcher has penned the most inspiring post about why we all need to embrace our bodies for what they are because comparing yourself to others is a waste of time.

She posted a photo where she is wearing a black bathing suit and messing about in the pool in Disneyland. Holidaying in the happiest place on Earth may seem perfect, but those worries and self-conscious thoughts often prop up no matter where you are.

 

Talking about ‘real’ bodies can’t be done without body shaming those who have the bodies we’ve been relentlessly told we should strive to achieve, which really goes against what praising and embracing our different body shapes is meant to do in the first place. ‘Real’ bodies, ‘real’ women, ‘real’ mums… I’m pretty sure we’re all ‘real’ no matter our sizes, if we have flawless skin or cellulite and stretch marks, or if we’re an apple, pear, oval, diamond or hourglass. Our bodies should be seen as wonderfully unique, not something to be ashamed of – or something people might judge us over. Question actions and words, but not a body’s inability to ever achieve a thigh gap, someone’s muscular abs, slender frame or a wobbly bingo wing. I still have moments where I doubt myself, where I think before stripping down to my swimwear, but then I remember how much my body has given me (and continues to give me) and I decide to get into that blooming pool and splash around with my beautiful boys. Better than that, I love every second. Don’t let your body hold you back, whatever your shape and size. Don’t judge or compare. Be you… be the best you in that moment. Xxx

“Talking about ‘real’ bodies can’t be done without body shaming those who have the bodies we’ve been relentlessly told we should strive to achieve, which really goes against what praising and embracing our different body shapes is meant to do in the first place,” Giovanna wrote.

The author said that everyone has a ‘real’ body regardless of its shape. “We’re all ‘real’ no matter our sizes, if we have flawless skin or cellulite and stretch marks, or if we’re an apple, pear, oval, diamond or hourglass.”

She believes that we should all accept our bodies for what they are and not to waste time worrying about what we think they should look like.

Comparing ourselves to others is a pointless battle. “Our bodies should be seen as wonderfully unique, not something to be ashamed of – or something people might judge us over.”

 

Bumping along!  xx

She urged her followers not to judge people by their appearance, “Question actions and words, but not a body’s inability to ever achieve a thigh gap, someone’s muscular abs, slender frame or a wobbly bingo wing.”

The Billy and Me author admitted that she still has doubts about her looks. She admitted that she often feels nervous about wearing her swimwear, as many of us do, but we need to stop those thoughts from taking over.

There is one thing that helps Giovanna move passed those doubts, “I remember how much my body has given me (and continues to give me) and I decide to get into that blooming pool and splash around with my beautiful boys.”

She encouraged her followers to enjoy the moment, “Don’t let your body hold your back, whatever your shape and size. Don’t judge or compare. Be you… be the best you at that moment,” she shared.

Giovanna’s moving words are ones we all need to live by.

We image the likes of Tom Fletcher having oh-so cool birthday bashes involving a chic nightclub, bottles of champagne and vodka, and an after-party in a five-star hotel suite. 

But nope – it seems when the dad-of-two marked his 31st bday over the weekend, he did so in a spectacularly low-key fashion.

 

Me and Buzz are having a shoe off.

Indeed, and as revealed on Instagram, the celebrations looked delightfully worlds away from his celebrity status.

Standing with his two-year-old son Buzz hanging from his t-shirt (major swoon all the same), Tom can be seen holding up a balloon in his left hand, and a home-made card in his right.

 

Woke up to a poop on the living room floor and a pee on the bathroom floor. Happy Birthday to me…

In the background, the glorious weekend mayhem of family-life is in clear view: oodles of coloured toys, puzzles and games and are strewn around the vicinity. 

Better still, Mr Fletcher reveals in the accompanying caption that his birthday 'presents' included "a poop on the living room floor and a pee on the bathroom floor".

Still, his loyal fans didn't seem to mind – the Instagram snap was soon flooded with hearty best wishes and birthday congratulations.

As well as toddler Buzz, Tom and his wife of four years, Giovanna, have a five-month old son, Buddy. 

Yesterday, the musician added a further snap of Buzz to his Instagram page. The touching black-and-white snap shows the child playing with a toy car. "Love watching my boy use his imagination," he wrote.

And this morning, Mr Fletcher revealed that he and his eldest son had on complementing footwear.

Me and Buzz are having a shoe-off," he wrote alongside a snap showing the elder Fletcher in Mickey Mouse slip-ons, and the little boy in corresponding Super Mario runners.

Tom and Giovanna Fletcher welcomed their son Buddy earlier last month, and now the doting dad himself has introduced his newborn to the world.

Tom made an adorable video of when Giovanna was only three months pregnant, and in short clips, brought it up to present day.

His older son, Buzz also makes an appearance in the video, and it's just too cute to handle.

Tom shared the video on Twitter today, saying: "Wishing my wife @MrsGiFletcher a happy Mother's Day. You are truly incredible, look at what you did in 9 months! X" Awwww…

In this day and age, and with all the controversy of it online, it's a wonder why people feel the need to body shame. We're all different, we're all beautiful – end of story.

But Tom Fletcher's wife, Giovanna, had to take it upon herself to hit back at nasty strangers who criticised her baby bump.

The mother-of-two took to Instagram to tell fans about the stranger's comment and how it affected her.

"A few days ago I had a near stranger point at my stomach, laugh and say 'Oh look, Mummy's still got her tummy'. This was eleven days after giving birth," she began.

"Yes, I still have a bump. But that bump kept my little baby boy safe for a whole nine months. That bump has filled my world with even more love and light than I knew possible. That bump is a miracle worker."

The post was filled with positivity and love and we just hope we look that good after giving birth.

It's been just over a week since Tom and Giovanna Fletcher welcomed the newest addition to their picture-perfect (or vlog-perfect), and we already have a first picture.

After teasing fans with news of little Buddy's birth by tweeting the words "Player 2 has entered the game" last Tuesday, McFly singer Tom kept things simple with the first official baby photo too, choosing only to share a snap of his new son's tiny feet.

"Can't believe these feet are a week old already. Happy 1st week in the world Buddy!" the proud dad wrote on Instagram last night.

We've also had a glimpse of what appears to be Buddy's hand, in this picture posted last week with no caption, just two days after the couple welcomed their new arrival:

The couple are already parents to a two-year-old son, Buzz, who features regularly in Tom's adorable father-and-son vlogs.

Over the last couple of years, the videos have earned the Fletcher family something of a cult following, and indeed the couple used a vlog to announce their pregnancy back in September. 

The singer, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2010, recently explained that his outlook on life had changed over the last two years, largely thanks to becoming a dad.

"Having a kid has really helped me in my life. It gives you a sense of needing to be stable," he told The Mirror.

At his lowest point he contemplated suicide, but these days Tom Fletcher says he is in a much clearer, healthier and more stable place.

The singer, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2010, explains that his outlook on life has changed over the last two years, largely thanks to his son Buzz.

"Having a kid has really helped me in my life. It gives you a sense of needing to be stable," he told The Mirror.

"It’s not about you any more, it’s about this child that you’ve decided to bring into the world. 

"You don’t have any choice but to cope with life because you’re doing it for someone else."

Tom and his wife Giovanna welcomed Buzz in 2013, and the McBusted star says it was a huge turning point for him. So much so, in fact, that he no longer uses medication.

The 30-year-old, who is expecting his second child early next year, first opened up about his mental health issues after Robin Williams's suicide last year.

Writing in response to a radio host who branded Williams' decision to take his own life as "diabolical," Tom said depression was no black and white issue.

"Sometimes … the storms come. I'm not talking about a light shower, I mean the full works," he wrote on his website. 

"The darkest skies you have ever seen … It's so completely consuming that it is suddenly not only the only thing you know but the only thing you have ever known.

"When I'm not in a storm I can remember pretty well what it was like being in it, but when I am in the storm I can't remember what it's like ever being happy."                     

We're delighted to hear Tom is doing so well these days.

Ok it's official: former McFly front-man Tom Fletcher and his wife Giovanna are the cutest couple on Instagram.

Along with pictures of their son, Buzz, the teenage sweethearts regularly share snaps of themselves living what seems to be a very normal life.

Indeed, their featured activities include watching Game Of Thrones and going for morning strolls.

The pair met when they were just 13, which makes this particular love-story all the more perfect.

In short, they are SOOOOOOO in love! 

 

Goodnight

Along with the rest of McFly, 29-year-old Fletcher swapped over to super group McBusted in 2013. And that band is still going strong: they have just finished a world tour which included a successful visit to Ireland. 

Tom even posted a picture depicting a pint of Guinness and captioned "goodnight" to celebrate wrapping up the Dublin show. 

 

4 years ago today I put a ring on it and asked @mrsgifletcher to be my wifeypoos.

He also shared a snap of the location where he popped the question to his "wifepoos" – also the spot where they met for the first time (awww!).

The couple recently celebrated their three-year wedding anniversary and thankfully for us, they marked the day by sharing lots of lovely pictures with the world.

His wife, Giovanna, is a 30-year-old author and sister of Towie's Mario Falcone.

She is a first-time mum and a self-confessed Nutella-lover, who has dedicated her Instagram account to her other-half. 

 

This is a woman about to start writing her 4th novel. Doesn't look like she's getting much done to me.

It's clear Fletcher is absolutely head-over-heels for his wife as, in return, his Instagram revolves almost entirely around her. 

The Fletchers are just back from a family holiday and Tom informed us that Giovanna is ''about to start writing her fourth novel''. 

You might remember Tom shared their journey from bump-to-baby in an adorable time lapse video last year, and it seems he hasn't stopped being adorable since. 

 

She still loves me.

But the award of cutest picture of all goes to a shot of Buzz and his dad asleep. We literally can't deal… We're gone. Bye!

The baby’s name is yet to be released but #BabyFletcher has already started trending.
