29-year-old Jenna Kutcher is a Wisconsin-native photographer.
Jenna…. in jeans? 💁🏼♀️ I know, I know… I used to call these babies "leg prisons" and then I was converted. Sounds dramatic, but it's true, @NYDJ swooped in and turned this elastic waistband girl into a jean-wearing sista. 👖 Now they've done it again with Curves 360, their newest collection that fits all shapes, sizes, and curves from size 00 to 28 (yup, talk about range for my ladies!) 👩👩👧👦 Jeans aren't as intimidating when you know they were made to hug your curves and dare I say: they are just as comfortable as my yoga pants! I’m wearing their new SHAPE fit, which supports and lifts from the front to the booty! 🙋🏼 Trust me when I tell you, my life was changed when @NYDJ swooped in and made me wear jeans again. Pants are invited to this party, again! 💃🏼 Shop Curves 360 at NYDJ.com and Nordstrom! #foryourcurves #sponsored #kutchersinkihei
She’s also been married for the past 10 years to fitness guru, Drew Kutcher, who she’s dubbed ‘Mister Six Pack.’
I want to look back on the season and see that we kept showing up: in life, in our marriage, in sharing our struggle, in keeping it real, in celebrating the joy. I want to remember this trip that started as running away from our problems but ended with coffee in bed, mezcal margaritas and nights spent spooning. I want to remember this hilarious thing I said to Drew to see his smile lines inch across his face. I am confident we will look back on this season and remember all of the in between moments that it holds, the ups and downs, the highs and lows but above all, we just keep showing up. Double tap if you agree that @kickingitwithkutch is a handsome, handsome man. 🙌🏻 #goals #imarriedup #rememberingbabykutch
Jenna posts photos of her everyday life with Drew on her Instagram page.
However, not all of the comments online are nice. Whenever she posts a swimsuit photo, internet trolls leap at the opportunity to body shame Jenna.
I am always shocked at the response when I post things about my body. An hour before Drew took this, I almost cried about my this size ten bod, I changed suits, covered up, and vowed that I wouldn't be caught dead at the pool…. But then I thought of you and why I couldn't hide. You see, these images don't do well because of me, it's because of you. You see yourself in my jiggly thighs, you feel your fears in my cellulite, you hear the voice in your head when you see my extra loving love handles, you feel more at home in my wide hips, you relate to one boob being a bit perkier than the other, you feel the shame in oversized arms… BUT (and this is a BIG but) we are all so much more than all of that. Maybe it's simply refreshing to see a double digit sized body baring it all or just a body that isn't retouched. Whatever it is, I am loving myself a little harder and praying that you'll do the same! I am not a number on a scale or a size in my clothes, neither are you!

One comment in particular took aim at the fact ‘they couldn’t believe [she] had managed to land a guy as good looking’ as her husband.
Hi, I'm Jenna and I believe in unicorns. JK, here's me floating on a unicorn in my swim suit. The best part? For the last 3 months I've hid my body…. It's gone through a lot of change. I carried a baby, lost a baby, and I simply felt like a stranger in this sized 12 shell. It'd be easy to caption this "Just another dreamy day in Austin" which would be true, but that's only half of the story… That's what social media is. If you're comparing yourself to strangers on the internet, remember that these snapshots aren't the whole story. I am on this journey, facing another miscarriage, filled with hope and fear, shame and body consciousness, and yet I'm still here, alive, happy, showing up, and seeking answers. This story is mine and I need to be in it, here I am so that I never forget this season of life, even though some days are really hard and some days are perfectly sunny. Enough about me, tell me about you. How did you end up here and why did you stay? 🙌🏻🙋🏼🥂Swimsuit: @aerie Hat: @audreyroloff Sunnies: @toms #aeriereal #fridayintroductions
Jenna explained how that message in particular affected her confidence and brought up past insecurities.
Someone once slid into my DMs and told me they couldn’t believe I had managed to land a guy as good looking as @kickingitwithkutch. I’ll be honest that I was taken aback. ✨ Part of my insecurity with my body has stemmed around being married to Mr. 6-Pack himself. Why should I, a curvy girl get him? I feel unworthy and when I write narratives in my head that because I am not thin, I don’t deserve him. 🙋🏼 This man has embraced every curve, every dimple, pound and pimple for the last ten years and has always me reminded me that I’m beautiful even when my inner dialogue doesn’t match (and when I haven’t showered in days.) 🙌🏻 So yes, my thighs kiss, my arms are big, and my bum is bumpy but there is just more of me for him to love and I chose the man that could handle alllll that (and so much more!) ✨ I am so much more than my body, so is he, and so are you.

Find the one you wanna tackle on the beach. We’re more pancakes on the couch while watching “This is Us” than going out kind of people. 🍷 We’re more adventures over things and less is really more kinda people. We’re fans of wine tastings that happen on the couch and church on Sunday mornings. 🛋 We let our dogs sleep under the covers and we list three things we’re thankful for every night before falling asleep. 🙏🏼 We’re small town folks with big dreams. We’re going places together and we’re still getting sand out of unmentionable places while we settle back into our little Midwest life. 👫 We are wildly filled with gratitude and excited for what’s to come. And yes, I love @kickingitwithkutch! (Have you seen how cute he is?) 🙋🏼 What’s the number one thing you look for in finding your partner in crime? Photo by: @mrslindseyroman

Since tonight’s all about hometown dates for The Bachelor, let’s talk about the first time @jennakutcher came to my house and met my parents. 💥 Jenna ran out to the car, fell on the last step and broke her foot. My dad yelled, “Drewwww, your girlfriend is laying in the driveway.” We ended spending all day in urgent care after she finally admitted to hearing a pop and she came back with a cast and crutches to navigate the Wisconsin winter with. 😂 My parents weren’t quite sure what to do, but I think they loved her (and the chaos she brought with her!) Let’s just say she took the “break a leg” thing seriously. 🍻 Who are you rooting for Arie to end up with? Comment below. Photo by: @mrslindseyroman
In an interview with Yahoo Lifestyle, Jenna shared that her struggle to love her body started at a young age when she was a gymnast.
“I think deep down, as women, our biggest fear is that we aren’t enough, that our bodies are broken,” she shared.
Jenna says Drew played a big role in helping her get over her past insecurities.
I vow to always travel the world with you and pack so much I have to sit on my suitcase and you pray TSA doesn’t open it. ✈️ I vow to be silly, to memorize each freckle on your face, to never take waking up next to you for granted, and to still grab your butt even when you’re old and wrinkly! 👴🏻 Double tap if that’s the kind of love you want!

“I think that he helps me, he sees me beautiful on the days when I don’t shower or change out of my high school sweatpants, which, let’s be honest, is most days. And he reminds me of my worth and beauty. But beyond that, I’ve had to really find that within.”
“I don’t think it’s safe or healthy to rely on someone else for acceptance and so, as I’ve grown my empire of a business, I’ve had to learn how to put myself first so that I can pour into others.”
