14 great celebrity quotes about the post-baby body

These women, like, totally get us…

“We have one life. I don’t want to spend my time thinking about the size of my arse. I want to be as healthy as I can be, and I want to have as much fun as I can have. I want to be around for my children. That’s it. Those are the priorities. Not getting a flat stomach.” Kate Winslet

“Becoming a mom has definitely made me feel more confident and secure than I ever did in my 20s. Even though I can’t ever get down to my pre-baby weight before having Honor, my jeans don’t zip up the same way, and things just hang differently (all moms know how that goes!), I feel completely comfortable in my skin and my idea of perfection has changed.” Jessica Alba

“My stomach…. even though it will never be flat again, it’s still my favourite because it reminds me of my greatest achievement: my babies.” Isla Fisher

“It’s really an awakening — when you get pregnant and have a child — that the female body is the most amazing machine imaginable.” Alyssa Milano

“It’s like, by the way, don’t you want to look like you’ve had a baby? I’m sitting here with you, I’m crunched over, I have a huge muffin top — who cares?!” Kristen Bell

“I remember right after the twins were born having that weird jiggly belly – and kind of loving that, too. Because I earned that jiggly belly.” Jennifer Lopez

“I wasn’t in a race to lose the baby-weight. I was really kind to myself because I was actually really impressed with the fact that I had just had a baby, like ‘I made a human!'” Pink

“I feel sexier after having a baby. I think you feel a lot more confident and much more appreciative of your body and what it’s capable of doing. I’ve got a lot more respect for it.” Rachel Weisz

“I gained so much weight, I got an opportunity to see myself completely disfigured in many different ways — for a very good reason — and I don’t regret it for a second. That’s when I started appreciating my body. The things that I used to criticise, they were not that bad after all.” Salma Hayek

“I’ve been a model and actress since I was 14, so I’ve been on a diet my whole life. But once I gave birth, I didn’t want to think about myself or feel insecure about my career; I wanted to think about my child. So I stopped worrying about diets.” Liv Tyler

My body has given me the greatest gift of my life. Ladies, let’s be proud of what we’ve got and stop wasting precious time in the day wishing we were different, better and unflawed.” Hilary Duff

“The truth is, I’m a mother, and I look like one. I believe in a world where mothers are not expected to shed any physical evidence of their childbearing experience.” Olivia Wilde

“It takes about a year to get the weight off. Don’t beat yourself up if it takes even longer. Write on your mirror in lipstick: ‘I had a baby. I’m a superhero.’” Kelly Rowland

“As a woman, you hate certain parts of your body. You go through those periods where you look in the mirror and you think, Oh, if only I had different legs or arms or whatever. You go through pregnancy and labor and then feeding the kid and you go, Wow, my body is totally amazing, and I’m never going to not like it again, because it did this, and this is fucking extraordinary.” Keira Knightley
