Milla Jovovich admits she loved being pregnant and used that to her advantage – she ate whatever she wanted! She was, however, a little shocked to find out she had gained 75 pounds during her pregnancy. But, in the end, she didn’t sweat it.
The Resident Evil: Apocalypse actress, who is mom to daughter Ever, 22 months, wasn’t concerned about getting back to her pre-pregnancy shape.
“I was definitely not in shape the way I was used to being in shape. I gained 75 lbs. during my pregnancy. But doing an action type movie got me out of the house and made me tone up a bit.”
She continued, “But I was in no real rush to get back to my former body. I did not have to worry about training or about my weight too much because I was not that bothered about my shape.”
Milla says that becoming a mom to her daughter has taught her to relax.
“She’s the biggest single teacher in the world for me. When you have a baby, the baby becomes so important that only really tangible problems become important rather than all these emotional concerns that you have before.
“Pre-children you create so many problems for yourself, like, ‘Am I ready for this audition?’ and you fret loads about whether you’re good enough, but now I have Ever, it’s not such a big deal.
She added, “Even if I don’t get the job, I know I’m going to be really busy as a mum. And even if I didn’t do another film again, being a mum is a full-time job.”
Milla and director Paul Anderson tied the knot on August 22. Their little angel was their flower girl.
I can’t imagine gaining 75 lbs.! How much did you gain with your baby(s)?
