Sarah Michelle Gellar isn't always thrilled with her body.

I think that most moms would agree that having a baby definitely does things to your body shape that you didn’t expect. Even if you shed all of your baby weight, odds are good that there are still a few items of clothing in your closet that just don’t fit the way they used to.

Sarah Michelle Gellar may be a celebrity, but even she admits that she has body issues since giving birth to her daughter, Charlotte. In a new interview in Health Magazine, Sarah said, “I totally have body dysmorphic disorder. I think most women do. I just have to remember that I’m human, and I’m a mom. Being a parent changes the vanity at least a little bit.”

I have to give her a round of applause for owning up to the fact that she struggles with thinking that she is unattractive sometimes. With body dysmorphic disorder, women tend to imagine that they have a certain body flaw, even if they don’t. I’ve always said that as women, we are our own worst critics, and we tend to see imperfections that others don’t even notice.

I also agree with Sarah’s point that being a mom makes you a little less vain. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve reminded myself that I’m not 21 anymore, and it’s ok to be happy and content at the size I am at this point in my life. As long as my son is healthy and happy, then I must be doing something right.

Here are a few more photos of Sarah since she had baby Charlotte. She looks pretty darn good to me!
