Bethenny Frankel regularly gushes about newborn daughter Bryn, and the fact that motherhood has helped her become a softer, happier person. But not everything that comes with babies and motherhood is quite so magical. One thing that wasn’t such a cup of tea for Frankel? Pregnancy.
“I’m just happy I’m not pregnant now!” the new mom told Usmagazine.com while at Opening Day of the 2010 Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge in Bridgehampton, NY. After watching so many episodes of her reality show, Bethenny Getting Married?, during which Frankel groaned about all the pains and struggles of pregnancy, we’re not shocked she said that either. Maybe the fact that she was so bothered with her large baby bump during pregnancy motivated her to lose those 29 pounds of baby weight so fast (She lost the weight within three weeks of giving birth!).
But now that Bryn is on the outside, Frankel is still just as thrilled as she was on day one. “I’m so luck to have a beautiful, healthy baby,” she said. Frankel said that her daughter, with husband Jason Hoppy, has started smiling regularly, and grabbing mom’s hair–not that she minds that part.
“It makes me feel like she needs me,” the celebrity chef said. It doesn’t look like Frankel will tire of parenting anytime soon, even if she did get a little “over” the being pregnant part.
