'I was humbled by my savage little boy who said I looked 'pregnant with two babies''

A mum was 'humbled' by her 'savage' little boy who says she looks 'pregnant with two babies' while trying on a bodycon dress.

Poor Joanne Phibbs, 32, recorded herself trying on a new fitted dress when her four-year-old son, Oliver, blurted out: 'That looks like you're pregnant with two baby kids.'

Mortified, the mum-of-one uploaded the clip to TikTok where it went viral - clocking up 1.2 million views.

Joanne has 'struggled with her weight' her whole life but decided to do something about it and lost 6st in six months - going from 23st 2lbs to 17 st 3 lbs and a size 28-30 to a size 20.

She bought a fitted Primark dress to show off her slimmed-down figure, but her new-found confidence was quickly dashed by her 'cheeky' little boy who 'brought her back down to earth' with his brutal honesty.

Joanne, an influencer, from Kildare, Ireland, said: "I feel like my life has only just begun, it's a dream come true being able to shop in normal shops.

"I felt amazing in my new dress but Oliver obviously felt differently.

"Honestly, I found his brutal honesty absolutely hilarious.

"When I went to get my weight loss surgery he was so scared but I told him 'mammy is going to get her tummy fixed'.

"Now he is my number one supporter and always tell me 'mammy you're tummy is looking smaller'."

In May 2019, Joanne started suffering from gall stones in her gall bladder.

Doctors said it wasn't safe to operate because of her weight and that it would be the same risk to her to have weight loss surgery.

Joanne said: "I wanted the surgery so I could be the best mum I could be to my little boy and so that I could start living."

The health advocate decided to undergo bariatric surgery - which involved removing part of her stomach and moving an intestine, making her stomach smaller so she feels full quicker - in Prague, Czech Republic, in February 2022.

She said: “On the day I had the surgery, my new life began.

“The operation was smooth sailing, I was well cared for and looked after.

“I have struggled with my weight my whole life, I have always been naturally bigger - even at my communion when I was eight, I had to buy an adult-sized dress.

“People think having weight loss surgery is the easy option, but I had tried every diet and pill in the book.

“I’ve made a lifelong commitment to losing weight and I work out every day.

“I can be so much more active with Oliver, and I can’t wait until I can go on holiday and wear swimwear.”

She has now lost an impressive six stone in just six months - and hopes to lose another 100lbs.
