Maren Morris has been focusing on feeling healthy as opposed to "bouncing back" since giving birth to her son, Hayes, last year. 

The star's personal trainer, Erin Oprea, recently revealed to Us Weekly that the "Bones" singer is secure with her postpartum figure, even though she's been bullied online for her shape.

“She doesn’t have this, ‘I want to bounce back kind of mentality,’ which I freaking love, after having a baby,” Oprea explained. “She has this, ‘I want to feel good, but I still want to love life.’ And I think it’s cool. My goal for her [is] slow and steady, enjoy the journey.”

According to Oprea, Morris is "100 per cent comfortable" with her body and has been working out three times a week.

“Her goal is to feel good and to put on her clothes and just keep her confidence," she continued. "She’s competent. She looks beautiful. She feels amazing.”

The fitness guru added that Morris has had a realistic and positive perspective on her fitness journey from the start, and is committed to her health.

“I don’t think [Maren] says, ‘I want this and I want that.’ She’s not that way. And I think her goal is to just keep her confidence up and rock [the] outfit that she loves,'" Oprea said. “We do lots of fun weight training. My philosophy is to try and turn fitness into games. So we play lots of fitness games."

Morris and her husband, Ryan Hurd, welcomed their first child in March 2020. Since then, however, she has faced criticism about her figure. Last month, Morris addressed her critics in an interview backstage at the Academy of Country Music Awards.

"We're always extremely pressed to erase any evidence on our body that we had a child — that we housed a child for nine, 10 months," she told reporters. "I just realized how unhealthy that was for me and my workout journey to be like, 'I need to get back to where I was before.'"
