New mom Amy Adams credits her pregnancy for teaching her an important lesson about her body.
“Being pregnant finally helped me understand what my true relationship was with my body – meaning that it wasn’t put on this earth to look good in a swimsuit,” The Fighter star, 36, tells PARADE’s Sunday issue.
“I was like, ‘Look, I can carry a baby! I’m gaining weight right, everything is going well.’ And I’ve had that relationship ever since,” adds Amy, mom to 7-month-old Aviana.
Amy isn’t in a frantic rush to lose the baby weight, either. “I’ve been working out when I can…but losing weight is not my number one priority,” she says. “It’s part of my job to return to some semblance of what I was before. But I don’t feel I’ve ever made my career on my rockin’ bod.”
