A new mum has revealed her husband calls her "Miss Piggy" to "motivate" her into losing weight.

The 32-year-old woman, believed to be from the US, says her hubby even makes their young kids call her it too.

She said she's struggling to lose stubborn baby weight because of her "postpartum depression" and that her husband is trying to help "because he loves her".

The married woman, who remains anonymous, took to Reddit to ask for advice after she snapped at her husband, who she refers to as 43-year-old Dave.

She said she ended up yelling at Dave in front of their kids during a family dinner as he started "oinking" at her.

The woman said Dave was annoyed at her as they agreed they'd never yell in front of their kids.

She shared: "We have a rule not to yell in front of the kids, but we're almost always in front of the kids during quarantine and I feel so dismissed.

"The kids started crying and Dave says I'm to blame."

In the post, the woman continued: "I get next to no sleep attending to my children and most mornings, I can barely get out of bed, much less drive to the gym. It's been a dark few months for me."

The woman said her hubby has taken the "Biggest Loser approach" by calling her names, but that it's left her feeling "undermined".

She also said he's urged friends and family to call her Miss Piggy too – which she says is a step too far.

"I hate this nickname, but he says it's supposed to motivate me to lose weight," she wrote.

"I think he really believes it's going to help me, but I feel really undermined while parenting because of this nickname."

The upset mum received tons of messages from fellow Reddit users slamming her husband's cruel behaviour.

One person wrote: "Wait, he says he's calling you demeaning names because he loves you? No. When you love someone, you use terms of endearment. Honey, Sweetie, Darling. Not Miss Piggy."

While another added: "He is also teaching his kids to be bullies and he is a bully. What a mean person."

A third fumed: "Teaching your children to humiliate you into losing weight is so beyond f***** up."

Others urged the mum to stand up to her husband while others suggested a therapist might be able to help her and her hubby through the situation.
