5 Celebrity Moms Who Embraced Their Post-Baby Bodies

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

The urgency to lose baby weight in Hollywood is almost as serious as an Oscar win.

Who dropped the postpartum pounds the fastest? Who debuted her post-baby body on a magazine cover? How much did she gain during her pregnancy?

Celebrity moms face these and many more questions when it comes to their bodies after baby. So when we hear moms like Kate Winslet and Mariska Hargitay embracing their postpartum figures, we can’t help but celebrate with them.

Let’s take a look at 5 celebrity moms who did not focus on fast weight loss, but instead embraced the postpartum period and their post-baby bodies.

Kate Winslet

Academy Award-winning actress Kate Winslet is mom to three kids: daughter Mia, 13, and sons Joe, 10, and Bear, 4 months.

While recently promoting her new film Divergent, the actress said she’s in no rush to lose the baby weight.

“To be honest with you, after having a baby you end up being so busy with the baby and the nursing,” she said. “And I have two other children as well obviously, so there’s so much going on that the difficulty I find is remembering that you have to eat. Because when you’re nursing you really have to eat, otherwise you don’t produce anything that’s going to feed your child. So nursing’s a great excuse to eat heaps. That’s what I’ve been doing.”

“I have to say, so much attention is placed on this thing of bouncing back after a baby,” she continued. “I don’t advocate fast weight loss at all after a baby, because you are nursing, you can’t, you have to eat and you have to be well… throwing myself into some workout regimen is crazy.”

She added: “Having just had a baby, I’m not going to be thinking about my arse.”

Reese Witherspoon

Academy Award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon had great perspective after welcoming her third child, son Tennessee, in September 2012.

At just 3-months postpartum – when the media asked how she’s “bouncing back” to her pre-baby body – the Oscar-winner kept it real.

“I don’t know if I’m bouncing back. I’m slowly crawling back,” said the actress, who’s also mom to daughter Ava, 14, and son Deacon, 10.

Drew Barrymore

Currently expecting her second daughter, actress Drew Barrymore didn’t stress over losing the baby weight after welcoming her baby girl Olive in September 2012..

“I don’t worry about it,” she shared of her post-baby body. “I probably wasn’t totally in shape before I got pregnant, but I do think I’m back to where I was. Perfect for me! I take care of myself. But I’m never going to be the person who talks about diet and exercise — I would fail that conversation!”

Prior to her second pregnancy, the Blended star praised the postpartum period as “sacred,” and not a time to be focused on rapid weight loss.

“I’m still working on it, but I’m not worrying about it,” she said. “We live in a society where everyone’s like, ‘Look at how amazing she looks two weeks out [from giving birth].’ I don’t want to be on that hamster wheel; that’s hell. I’m never going to have the kind of body that makes me excited about bikini season. I’ve never had a ‘beach body.’ But I want to feel like I’m showing up and doing my best. My goal is to be nice to myself, gentle toward myself, during this process. It’s such a sacred time.”

Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson’s weight gain during her first pregnancy was one of the most talked-about topics of 2012.

The Fashion Star mentor graced the January/February 2013 cover of Weight Watchers magazine, showing off her weight loss after the May 1 arrival of her daughter Maxwell.

“I really have to separate myself from the world’s expectations and really just be healthy with myself,” Jessica shared. “I’m not a supermodel. My body is not bouncing back like a supermodel. I’m just your everyday woman.”

And although she’s a multi-millionaire and one of the world’s most beautiful women, Jessica says she’s still human and it hurts when people bashed her body.

“It’s not fun to be talked about,” she shared. “It’s not fun to be judged.”

“I never listen to it, no matter who the press talks about when they’re pregnant,” she added. “It’s ridiculous and unfair. I think any woman who is pregnant and creating a life is pretty much entitled to eat whatever she wants as long as she’s healthy. I wasn’t going to let the media take away from what was one of the happiest times in my life.”

Mariska Hargitay

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star Mariska Hargitay is mom to three children: August, nearly 8, Amaya, 3, and Andrew, 2.

The actress says she not only embraces, but loves her body after baby.

 “I love my curves because they scream, ‘I’m a mama!’ I’m the girl who started wearing maternity pants about an hour after I found out I was pregnant because I was so excited about becoming a mom,” she shared. “Things are sagging a bit – I’m not going to lie. But am I going to be upset about the sag or am I going to look at my three gorgeous kids and my husband and count my lucky stars?”

Celebrity Parents Shine at the Academy Awards

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

This post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

Call the ‘sitter, it’s Hollywood’s biggest night out!

Some of our favorite celebrity parents attended the 2013 Academy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (February 24). From mom-of-three Reese Witherspoon, to power couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, to parents-to-be Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum, let’s look at the best – and worst – dressed of the evening.

Parents-to-be Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum rocked the red carpet on Hollywood’s biggest night. Jenna dressed her baby bump in a body-hugging black lace Rachel Roy gown with cap sleeves and a deep V-neck.

The mom-to-be accessorized with one-of-a-kind Irene Neuwirth earrings and Christian Louboutin’s Aida clutch in nude satin.

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck – parents to daughters Violet, 7, and Seraphina, 4, and son Samuel, 1 on Wednesday – looked every bit the glam Hollywood couple.

Walking the red carpet in style, Jennifer looked stunning in a custom Gucci gown paired with Neil Lane jewels and a Roger Vivier clutch. And Ben didn’t look too shabby in his dapper tuxedo, accessorized with his shiny trophy!

Helen Hunt went eco-chic in an H&M couture midnight blue gown in silk satin. The actress – who is mom to 8-year-old daughter Makena – debuted H&M’s eco-friendly initiative with the environmental group Global Green.

Going equal parts glam and down-to-earth, Helen paired the strapless gown with $700,000 worth of jewels by Martin Katz which were sewn right into the dress.

Best of 2012: Favorite Maternity Trends

Monday, December 31st, 2012

This post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

There’s no question Hollywood had a baby boom in 2012. And in celebration, we’re taking a look at the best maternity fashion trends of this last year.

1. Sarah Michelle Gellar

Our readers love Sarah Michelle Gellar! Not only is she one of our favorite celebrity moms year-after-year, we can’t get enough of her fabulous fashions. And when she is dressing a baby bump, we all watch with admiration.

Before welcoming her son Rocky in September, SMG led the way in maternity trends this year. From going casual in skinny jeans and tees, to leggy floral prints and layers, we couldn’t get enough of Buffy’s maternity trends.

2. Reese Witherspoon

New mom-of-three Reese Witherspoon was simply radiant with breezy summer dresses throughout her third pregnancy.

Before welcoming son Tennessee in September, Reese delighted us with her stylish maternity duds. From polka dots, to stripes, to solid colors, the Oscar-winner often opted for above-the-knee dresses, flat sandals, and layered necklaces throughout her pregnancy. We loved it!

3. Kourtney Kardashian

From casual chic to red carpet ready, Kourtney Kardashian sure knows how to make pregnancy look good!

Before welcoming her second child – daughter Penelope – in July, the reality TV starlet was the queen of polished pregnancy looks. Whether it was at the latest Hollywood event or at the local farmer’s market, the reality TV mama did not disappoint. For her everyday maternity style, Kourt kept things casual chic in fitted duds showcasing her burgeoning belly, paired with the latest trends such as oversized handbags, fedoras, and blazers.

4. Kristin Cavallari

The Hills alum Kristin Cavallari was one of those lucky women who was ‘all belly’ during pregnancy.

And she dressed that bump beautifully while expecting her first child – son Camden who was born in August. From feminine flowing maxi dresses, to mini maternity looks, to skinny jeans and form-fitted tops, we could not get enough of Kristin’s maternity style.

5. Camila Alves

Brazilian beauty Camila Alves knows how to make pregnancy look good!

Before giving birth to her third child with Matthew McConaughey earlier this week, the model mom flaunted her maternity curves with fitted dresses and colorful prints as her belly grew.

The Most High-Profile Celebrity Babies of 2012

Friday, December 21st, 2012

This post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

There’s always reason to celebrate a baby’s birth, but when our favorite celebrities add to their families, we can get downright giddy!

1. Blue Ivy Carter

R&B royalty Jay-Z and Beyoncé welcomed daughter Blue Ivy on January 7, 2012. The superstar couple released a touching statement to announce the birth of their first child.

“Hello Hello Baby Blue!” they stated. “We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, born on Saturday, January 7, 2012. Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven. She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7 lbs and it was the best experience of both of our lives. We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support.”

2. India Rose Hemsworth

The Avengers star Chris Hemsworth welcomed first child, daughter India Rose, with his wife Elsa Pataky on May 11, 2012. The Snow White and the Huntsman actor said fatherhood has been smooth sailing so far.

“She’s been great,” Chris gushed of his newborn daughter. “She sleeps very well. Not out of any skill on my behalf, but my wife has been amazing.” The Aussie actor adds that fatherhood has already shifted his perspective: “Just her being here. It’s certainly taken all my focus and attention away from work — or what have you — but that’s the main thing on my brain right now. It’s wonderful.”

3. Samuel Garner Affleck

Already parents to daughters Violet, 7, and Seraphina, nearly 4, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck finally welcomed a son, Samuel Garner, on February, 27, 2012. The proud mom-of-three opened up about their newest family member.

“He is so chill… He reaches when he sees me and he laughs a lot,” Jennifer said. “He thinks I’m super funny. What more do you want?”

4. Olive Barrymore Kopelman

E.T. star Drew Barrymore and husband Will Kopelman welcomed their first child, daughter Olive, on September 26, 2012. “We are proud to announce the birth of our daughter,” the newlyweds announced.

“I can’t wait until I have my children,” Drew said just weeks before welcoming baby Olive. “I love the idea that they don’t have to do something that they have no interest in, that they can do something completely opposite if they want to. I will be so surprised if they don’t want to do something involving food or wine or art, but I’ll be OK with it. I just want to build fun, great things for my family.”

5. Maxwell Drew Johnson

Singer-turned-entrepreneur Jessica Simpson and fiancé Eric Johnson welcomed their first child, daughter Maxwell Drew, on May 1, 2012. And by all accounts, it seems the Fashion Star mentor has taken to motherhood like a duck to water.

“I am so in love with baby Maxwell,” the new mom gushed. “I want to cry every time I look at her. Motherhood is by far the best thing I’ve ever experienced.”

Spitting Image: Celebrities and Their Little Lookalikes

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

This post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

Who are some of the closest lookalike mother-daughter duos in Hollywood? What about father-son, or father-daughter, or even mother-son pairs?

Celebrity Baby Scoop takes a look at 15 celebrities and their spitting images. From Reese Witherspoon and daughter Ava, to the late Heath Ledger and daughter Matilda, to Gwyneth Paltrow and daughter Apple, here’s a look at Tinseltown’s mini-me’s.

1. Reese Witherspoon and her 13-year-old daughter Ava might be the closest lookalike pair in Hollywood! Reese and her 8-year-old son Deacon also look similar, but we think he looks more like papa Ryan Phillippe. No?

2. Cindy Crawford and her 11-year-old daughter Kaia are a close second to Reese and Ava. This gorgeous mother-daughter duo are spotted all over Los Angeles in their funky duds. Not to mention, Kaia’s 13-year-old brother Presley and dad Rande Gerber are just as beautiful.

3. Gwyneth Paltrow‘s daughter is the apple of her eye! There’s no doubt about it, Apple, 8, looks just like her mama. Gwyneth and her husband Chris Martin are also parents to 6-year-old son Moses, another close lookalike for the stunning actress.

4. Tina Fey has a mini-me: her 7-year-old daughter Alice! Tina and her longtime love, husband Jeff Richmond, are also parents to 1-year-old daughter Penelope. We hope to see more of Tina’s baby to see if she is also looks like her hilarious mama.

5. Julianne Moore and her 10-year-old daughter Liv are one of the cutest mother-daughter duos in Hollywood! We love this redheaded pair who look so much alike. Julianne and her husband Bart Freundlich are also parents to 14-year-old son Cal — not so much of a resemblance there!

6. Adam Sandler and his 6-year-old daughter Sadie look so much alike that she was cast to play his young identical twin sister in his movie Jack and Jill! Adam and his wife Jackie are also parents to 3-year-old daughter Sunny, who also resembles her funny dad.

7. Mark Consuelos and his 15-year-old son Michael have often been called one of the closest father-son lookalikes in Hollywood. Mark and his lovely wife Kelly Ripa are also parents to daughter Lola, 11, and son Joaquin, 9, but we don’t see the strong resemblance with the younger two. Do you?

8. Teri Hatcher and her 14-year-old daughter Emerson are such a pretty pair! The lookalike mother-daughter duo seem like the best of friends and are often seen out lunching and shopping together. Emerson is Teri’s only child, whom she had with ex-husband Jon Tenney.

9. Heidi Klum and her 8-year-old daughter Leni are blonde beauties! Often seen at the playground, out for lunch, or just strolling in SoHo, Heidi’s oldest child is definitely her mini-me. Heidi and estranged husband Seal are also parents to sons Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and 2-year-old daughter Lou.

10. Angelina Jolie seems to have passed down her luscious lips and overall stunning good looks to her 4-year-old daughter Vivienne. There’s no question that her other biological children – Vivienne’s twin Knox and 6-year-old daughter Shiloh – also look like her, but we think the strongest resemblance is with Vivi. No?

11. Jennifer Garner finally got her boy, and we think he’s the spitting image of mama! Baby Samuel, 6 months, seems to have Jen’s beautiful eyes. While big sisters Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3, also look like mom, we think Jen’s boy looks most like her.

12. Heath Ledger died too soon at the age of 28. But before his tragic passing, he welcomed a daughter, Matilda, with actress Michelle Williams. Now nearly 7, Matilda is the spitting image of her late father. May his memory live on in her beautiful smile.

13. Britney Spears‘ boys – Sean Preston, 7, and Jayden James, 6 – are both little lookalikes to their gorgeous mama! It seems the boys have gotten their mother’s good genes, making them some of the cutest celebrity kids around. The boys’ father is Brit’s ex-husband, former backup dance Kevin Federline.

14. Uma Thurman‘s 14-year-old daughter Maya could play her younger self in a movie! We recently spotted the pretty pair out with Uma’s newborn daughter and we couldn’t help but notice the striking resemblance. Uma and her ex-husband Ethan Hawke are also parents to 10-year-old son Levon.

15. Kris Jenner and her infamous daughter Kim Kardashian, 31, are one of the most photographed lookalike duos in Hollywood. The mother-daughter team not only look like each other, they spend countless hours working together on their reality TV show and many other endeavors. Kris’ five other children also share a strong resemblance with the famous matriarch.
