Rebel Wilson defends decision to go out partying just a week after daughter was born

Rebel Wilson defends decision to go out partying just a week after daughter was born

The Bridesmaids star hit back at critics over her decision to go out with friends days after becoming a mum

Rebel Wilson has hit back at people who've criticised her for partying just a week after her daughter was born.

The Australian actor and partner Ramona Agruma welcomed Royce Lillian into the world back in November.

Since then, the pair have been getting to grips with parenthood and all the trials and tribulations that it brings.

And Wilson says some other mums weren't too happy after seeing that she had been out at a couple of parties a few days after giving birth.

For the record, the first soiree was to celebrate Leonardo DiCaprio's birthday, while the other was Paris Hilton's wedding anniversary.

But despite the A-list names involved, some weren't very happy with the 42-year-old.

Speaking on the Life Uncut podcast with Brittany Hockley and Laura Byrne, Wilson said: "It was only a week until I got mum-shamed.

Rebel Wilson and Ramona Agruma welcomed Royce Lillian into the world last year.

"I was shocked at the criticism because Chris Hemsworth goes to the gym, and people aren't yelling, 'Where's your kids?' But why do they do it to every woman?"

Wilson admitted that she had questioned her decision to go partying after going through childbirth, but claimed that her nanny supported the idea and encouraged her to get out.

"It's a little bit [of] work in a way," she said. "Like, I'm talking to directors or talking to other actors that might be useful to collaborate with… and then we were basically home by midnight.

"Just because you become a mother, doesn’t mean that you lose your identity as a person.

"It doesn't mean you can't go out with friends or you can't go on a holiday. It doesn't mean you can’t have a career.

"People will say I'm in a privileged position, which I am, but I think it's so outdated. Why is it women shaming other women? It always is."

She added: "I worked hard to get into a position where I had a really great household and stable life to bring up the baby, but we don’t go out that much though because we want to stay home and chill and we’re so exhausted!"

Following the birth of her Royce Lillian, the Bridesmaids star came out and explained the inspiration behind her name.

“I wanted an original name starting with the letter R and so eventually landed on that one,” she shared with People.

The Australian TV and film star said she shares the name Elizabeth with her daughter, which was inspired by Queen Elizabeth II.

Rebel explained: “Lillian and Elizabeth are both family names carried by women in my family who I admire. Elizabeth, which is also my middle name, after the late Queen.”
