The first photo in the carousel featured Patrick Mahomes’ wife in a red bathing suit for Sports Illustrated.

"These are just a few of the many women who I look up to... the ones that have used their position in this life to build businesses, give back and overall do good in this world," Kelly began.

“So for those of you who are wondering if it’s appropriate to use the platform you were handed, I would say it absolutely is. Don’t be ashamed of how you received it, be grateful and use it. Use it to support your family, use it to give back, use it to create positive change, use it for good. Even if you misstep along the way, stay true to yourself and your values and you will do more good than bad,” Kelly continued.

“I’m still reminding myself every day of this. It’s hard not to feel ashamed that what you have is because of someone you are married to and I know Matthew gave me this platform but I’ve used it to create a community. Through my podcast, which normalizes not being perfect.. not being a perfect spouse, mother, friend, human being.. and hoping women feel a little less pressure to be the 'perfect woman' as society stresses we must be,” she added.

Kelly concluded: “So let’s keep lifting one another up…Tag a woman in the comments to let them know that they inspire you ❤️.”
