Amy Adams isn’t hopping on the ‘mommyrexia’ bandwagon, according to an interview published in InStyle‘s December issue. She’s okay with baby weight, even if it does give her a temporary muffin top—an attitude we wish more celebrities would take when it comes to their post-pregnancy bodies:
She’s working out again but says she’s not in a huge rush to squeeze back into skinny jeans. “I read about these actresses who get on a stationary bike two weeks after giving birth and I’m like, ‘What? Where did you push your baby out of?’” Adams says with a dramatic shrug. “Since having Aviana, I have a muffin top, and that’s OK right now.”
Another interesting fact InStyle taught us about Amy Adams: Her mother had a career as a semi-pro bodybuilder, which she launched when Amy was a teen. Speaking about her mother’s career, she said:
It was strange…but I was proud of her. Shes a oughie. She taught me about perseverance and to push through my fears.
Which just goes to show that emphasizing the importance of being strong and happy, instead of just skinny, is a much better example to set for our daughters (and each other) when it comes to promoting a healthy body image and attitude towards fitness.
