This momma is looking hawt these days, but it hasn't been easy for her!
Jennifer Love Hewitt admitted recently, at Tuesday's launch party for her new A Pea in the Pod maternity clothing line called L, that she's struggled with her perception of her body since her pregnancy.
But she doesn't want to worry about it too much — even if she has to remind herself of that fact every now and then.
Here's what she said:
"It's hard, it's really hard. And I wasn't sure where I was going to fall and what was going to happen and how I was going to feel. It just feels great to sort of be honest about the fact that it is tough and these clothes make it a little easier, make me feel beautiful. I'm still in a lot of my pregnancy clothes and there is just where I feel good right now. Everything hasn't returned back to where I want it to be and put on my other clothes and feel good about that."
Although it's been a struggle, Jennifer Love doesn't want people, especially her daughter Autumn, to think she's obsessed about it!
"If your priorities are right, the baby's most important. You have to eat to feed to your baby. And I have a girl so I want her to see some day why her mom has good self-esteem and good body issues. It gets you down sometimes, I'm not going to lie. I've had days where I'm like, ‘Ugh, I wish this was easier.' But it's not, and that's OK."
Which is part of the reason why she wanted to create this maternity clothing line. She said:
"We're sort of in this odd time in our society right now where women are not being nice to each other. We've got a lot of reality stuff where people being mean to each other and, fashion-wise, people are talking bad about each other. I thought, ‘What a beautiful place to put my energy?' Make a line for women, by a woman, who actually wants them to feel great and feel beautiful and look fantastic and look better than everyone walking around, especially at a time when you cannot feel very good about yourself."
Making people want to feel good about themselves? We're all aboard that train!
We're loving Jennifer Love these days! Keep up the brilliant work, lady!
