Singer-Actress Details Struggle with Body Image, Media Scrutiny after Pregnancy
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/19/2012 -- Hilary Duff talks post-pregnancy weight-gain and weight-loss with Parents.com in a new interview. The singer-actress had her first son, with husband Mike Comrie, this March and said that she was aware of having her body compared to other actresses, especially women who seemed to gain no ‘baby weight’ at all.
Duff told the website that, “There are some women who look the same right after. I think they are freaks of nature! I don’t know how that happens. I’m not one of those people.”
The singer-actress, known for “Lizzie McGuire”, says she is working on dropping her post-pregnancy pounds, but it’s been a struggle to slim down: “It takes your body nine months to get there, really 10 months. So I’m trying to be patient, but I’m working hard.” She added, “And I think now more than ever, I appreciate my body and what it’s done for me.”
The blonde diva also said she feels the weight of being under scrutiny from the press and paparazzi : “ I mean there are photographers following me every day, so you feel the pressure because of what people write about you. Not that they’re personal attacks, obviously, when you see ‘Hilary Debuts Post-Baby Body!’ you want to tell people, ‘No, actually, I was just going out to get a coffee.’”
Despite putting on a few pounds, the star says that being a mother is indescribable:
“It's really wonderful. There are no words to describe it. I mean, to say ‘It's wonderful’ sounds minuscule. When you get to see your baby for the first time, and they put him on your chest, and you're looking into each other's eyes, this feeling just washes over you and there are really no words.”
Though she loves being a new mom, Duff admits it can wear you out:
“You know the first two weeks I was just on a high. I was going, going, going. And then after that, exhaustion set in. So that was tough. The advice people gave me was to sleep when your baby's sleeping and I didn't do it in the beginning. Once I got exhausted I thought, ‘Okay, I understand what they mean.’”
