A celebrity fitness blogger's selfie, taken -- she said -- four days after her daughter's birth, has engendered controversy, jealousy, and congratulations as well, as it has gone viral on the Internet, Yahoo reported Tuesday.

Caroline Berg Eriksen runs the biggest health and fitness blog in Norway. She is also married to Norwegian Premier League player Lars-Kristian Eriksen. The Instagram photo, shown above, had the following caption:

I feel so empty, and still not 4 days after birth

The image shows Eriksen with a toned stomach, seemingly enhanced breasts (which most breast-feeding moms can relate to), and little evidence of a recent childbirth.

While some comments on her Instagram post were complimentary, others were doubtful, or even critical.

One comments, baboforever, wrote:

Im not impressed by the body bc she was very fit before and worked out all through her pregnancy w personal trainer and I'm sure personal chef/nutritionist ... What amazes me is that after 4 days pp she has the energy (desire?) to get up, put on sexy lingerie, take a selfie and post it on IG!

On the other hand, juniord63 wrote:

Women in Hollywood do this all the time after giving birth... I thought keeping fit and healthy was a good thing... Girl keep doing the DAM THANG!!! Let the haters hate it don't matter what you do or how you do it there will always be haters...

Appearing on "Good Morning America," Eriksen said:

People kept telling me that my body would never be the same,” Berg Eriksen told ABC News. “I wanted to show everyone that’s not entirely true.

Right after birth – like three minutes after – I felt like myself again.

It's true, too, that Ericksen was exercising right up until the birth. Additionally, she never developed a very large baby bump. As tiana_bryant24 wrote:

its not suprising u look like that since u didnt gain much weight and u lose water weight quick after birth

Some though, felt that Eriksen's post gave some women a poor self-view. What do you readers think?
