Kristen Bell Has No Interest In Your “Body After Baby” Narrative

Kristen Bell Has No Interest In Your "Body After Baby" Narrative

“The secret to body after baby is flushing down the toilet every notion of body after baby. Honestly! … I made a commitment to not allow my narrative for the year after having a baby to be about my weight. And I think that freed me up and it made me less concerned with all the pressures that revolve around body image. I was like, ‘I have a baby. Do you know how awesome that is? It’s so radical! Why on earth am I going to be so concerned with my pants size?’”

Bless Kristen Bell for her refreshing outlook on that whole “body after baby” obsession that our culture demands of new moms, especially new celebrity moms. She’s the coolest and daughter Lincoln clearly has a great role model to look up to as she grows up. [E! Online]

Snooki Talks About Losing Her Baby Weight, Doesn’t Understand What Baby Weight Is

Seriously, how good is Snooki looking these days? I think she’s always been cute, but when she got pregnant, she stopped tanning, and it seems like she’s started using more natural makeup (natural for Snooki, of course), and honestly, I think she’s super hot right now. Unfortunately, Snooki doesn’t agree with me. She just did an interview with In Touch, and she says she’s still got a ways to go:

“I really don’t like how I look,” the “Jersey Shore” star tells In Touch in an exclusive interview. “When you have a baby you get stretch marks, and it’s all loose skin. Everything needs to get back to where it was.” Read more…

“Nobody wants to talk about their weight. For me, I have had to come to a place where I am comfortable with myself. I’m a mom now, and get to be a role model for this beautiful little girl … I feel like everybody can do what I am doing. I’m not a supermodel. My body is not bouncing back like a supermodel. I’m just your everyday woman who is trying to feel good and be healthy for her daughter, her fiancé and herself.”

Jessica Simpson, pop star, entrepreneur, and new mom to baby Maxwell, responds to USA Today‘s questions about losing her very famous baby weight. Now, don’t get me wrong, the article also contains the usual stats about her Weight Watchers points allotments, and I know she’s being paid ungodly sums of money to lose the weight, but still, I thought this quote was actually really thoughtful and inspiring, even. As someone whose never-had-a-baby body looks a lot like Jessica’s post-baby body, I’ve been very interested to see how the media–and more importantly, Jessica herself–handles her weight loss process. I’d love to hear more about her journey to find a healthy weight under massive pressure, but with her “new body” being unveiled on Katie “Eat A Sandwich” Couric‘s show next week, I’m afraid my hopes aren’t terribly high for a positive and honest conversation about body image and self-esteem.

Amy Adams Isn’t In A Rush To Lose The Baby Weight

“Being pregnant finally helped me understand what my true relationship was with my body — meaning that it wasn’t put on this earth to look good in a swimsuit. I was like, ‘Look, I can carry a baby! I’m gaining weight right, everything is going well.’ And I’ve had that relationship ever since.”

– Amy Adams, Golden Globe-nominee for her role in “The Fighter,” is not tussling with the scale after giving birth to baby Aviana a few months ago. With every magazine ever touting “celebs who lost the baby weight in five minutes!” I find her perspective to be so refreshing. [People] Keep reading »

Victoria’s Secret Model Finally Admits To Not Magically Losing Baby Weight

Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosia walked in the VS fashion show four months after giving birth to her first child. And she looked the sort of good that inspires teenage boys everywhere to steal mommy’s catalog for, well, personal use. Given that most women complain endlessly about the difficulty of losing baby weight coupled with the fact that Ambrosia is clearly already genetically blessed, her claim that all she did was yoga once a week was a bit painful to hear.
