Claire Danes and other celebs may shed baby weight like it’s nothing, but some don’t!
Speaking to reporters on Jan. 24 at the Elle Women in Television event in West Hollywood, Molly Sims spoke candidly about her postpartum weight loss struggles following the June 19, 2012 birth of her son, Brooks Alan:
“I’m still about ten pounds away and my baby is seven months. And I look at Claire Danes at the Globes and I’m like, I hate you.”
When Us Weekly pointed out that Danes credited Spanx for her svelte post-baby look at the Globes, Sims, who’s married to film producer Scott Stuber, quipped, “Sweetie, that ain’t Spanx. I’ve got Spanx on. That ain’t Spanx.”
Count your blessings, Miss Sims! You’ve done a lot- acting, modeling, designing…and now parenting. The 39-year-old mom has a bit of a right to be frustrated, though: she revealed she gained almost 65 pounds during her pregnancy because of a thyroid condition.
“My thyroid kind of shut down, so that really made it very difficult in terms of the weight loss.”
Now on a natural thyroid medicine, she’s ten pounds from her goal weight, and restricting her diet as well as working with personal trainer Tracy Anderson. Like many moms, losing the weight is really hard. I mean, I don’t know personally, but it has to be- mothers’ bodies go through so many changes. Still, it’s important to appreciate what you DO have, am I right?
