Meghan Trainor is getting real about her body image struggles since giving birth to her son, Riley, earlier this year.

The 27-year-old "No" singer recently opened up to People about her confidence taking a hit in the months following her pregnancy, and how she has been learning to love her body again. The "All About That Bass" singer revealed that since giving birth, there have been some changes that she's trying to adjust to.

“I’m covered in scars and stretch marks in new places I didn’t know stretch marks could be," she said. "There are things that aren’t going to go away ever, and I have to learn to love that."

She also went on to explain that she struggled to feel desirable — even in her relationship with her husband, Daryl Sabara. 

"I started to feel unsexy immediately. Even with my husband, the love of my life, who worships the ground I step on, who loves my body — I was like, 'I'm not feeling it, man,'" Trainor recalled before revealing that therapy helped her get back on track.

"It took me a couple of weeks and therapy sessions to be like, how do I get back in the mindset of: 'My husband loves me, and I'm hot, and everything's OK?'" she shared.

Despite the brief setback, Trainor and her husband are committed to keeping the spark alive. 

"The spark didn't leave, but the spark has struggled," she said, adding, "a surprise — it's not scheduled — and that really brought back our spark."

The singer explained that the primary reason she has been focused on fitness since giving birth is so that she can keep up with her son. 

"I want to run and keep up with my kid. I want to be able to put on a bathing suit and run out there and not be in my head about it. And I want to climb up a treehouse with him," she said. "I've lost all the baby weight and 10 extra lbs., so I'm just going to keep going and do this for my younger self."
