Even stars struggle to get back to pre-baby shape: Megan Fox just shared a few details of her experience, and it's surprisingly relatable.
Celebrity moms seem to drop their baby weight almost overnight—and when asked about their postpartum weight loss, many of them claim the pounds "just sort of melted off" from a combination of breastfeeding and running after a baby.
And while it really is that easy for some people, most of us have to put in some serious work and time to reverse pregnancy weight gain. Ultimately, we all have to be patient with the process and realize that there are more important things to think about—but hearing stars talk about how they just saw those pounds slide right off without much work? Well, it's enough to make a mom feel like she doesn't measure up to that standard.
That's why it's refreshing to hear a gorgeous celebrity mom who's not afraid to get real about how drastic those physical changes can be. The latest to do so? Megan Fox, a mom of three boys. It's easy to look at someone like Megan and think her bounce back game is effortless, but she's quick to tell fans that's not necessarily the case.
“I worked out really hard. This time it was a struggle for me. There was a lot of walks and very long runs. It was awful,” the star, who is working with Frederick's of Hollywood, admitted to Extra. She also came clean about how hard parenthood is, saying: “I haven’t slept in almost a year. There’s not one night that I have slept through the night. I’m still breastfeeding and [Journey] wakes up all the time, and then the other two come and wake me up and get in bed also.”
Also worth noting? Megan gave a nod to nursing's effect on a woman's boobs, saying that after breastfeeding three kids, she'd much rather be seen in a push-up bra. Relatable, right?
Obviously, a woman like Megan Fox is going to have a distinct advantage where dropping that baby is concerned: At 31, she's a pretty young mom of three; she can hire a personal trainer and nutritionist; she's obviously been blessed with great genes. Still, it's refreshing to hear that losing baby weight almost always takes a lot of hard work—even for the celebrity moms of the world.
