5 Stars Who’ve Embraced Their Bodies With Motherhood

Pregnancy and motherhood are life changing experiences, and these 5 stars have noticed how their attitudes towards their bodies have changed since welcoming a child. Amazed by all their bodies can do, these celebs let go of their insecurities and embraced their flaws, learning to love what they have and all that their body has been able to give them.

Kerry Washington


Kerry was so amazed by the process of child birth that she just gave her body up to the experience: ”I think lending my body to that miraculous journey has taught me a lot about surrendering my own needs for someone else’s being.”

Kendra Wilkinson

Kendra fell in love with her post-baby figure: ”I’m not trying to be perfect anymore. Even though I was in Playboy back then, right now I have the body of my dreams. I fill out jeans pretty good, now — I have the butt I’ve always wanted!”

Keira Knightley

Keira was just amazed by her own body and let her insecurities go: “Also, I have to say, 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 labour 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 f**king extraordinary’.”

Jessica Alba

Jessica is happy to embrace her flaws because she knows where they came from: “There’s something so amazing about having a child. My breasts are saggy, I’ve got cellulite, my hips are bigger, but I love it.”

Christina Aguilera

Christina is not afraid of her changing figure and motherhood taught her to embrace it further: “Some people are afraid of change and [feel] that getting older is a bad thing, but I really love maturing and gaining wisdom, and the experience of being pregnant and having a child and seeing what a woman’s body can do is amazing.”
