Kudos, Haylie Duff!
The girl is honest: nine months after giving birth to her baby daughter Ryan Ava, she says she hasn’t bounced back to her pre-baby body and she’s cool with that.
Duff told Wonderwall that she “definitely” doesn’t “feel like I’m looking amazing (but that she has not) put pressure on myself to lose everything right away.”
Aside from walks with baby Ryan, Duff’s fitness regimen has been mellow, mainly due to her desire to breastfeed:
“I had sort of an interesting situation when I was nursing where if I was working out too much or cutting my calories, my milk supply really went down,” the Real Girl’s Kitchen host, 30, told Wonderwall.
“So for me, it was a struggle because I really wanted to focus on losing weight and getting my body back. But at the end of the day, I had to sit down and make the decision that meant the most to me — and that was breastfeeding my baby.”
Haylie made a choice. And I’m glad it was the one that had to do with the personal relationship with her baby, and less about how she is perceived by society…
