Resident Evil: Afterlife star Milla Jovovich talks to HollyBaby.com about how she had to work hard to lose the 70 pounds she gained while pregnant with her daughter, Ever.
Here’s some comforting news for all of the new moms out there — not every famous mother in Hollywood managed to lose their baby weight overnight. In fact, model/actress/designer Milla Jovovich, 34, is proud of the fact that it took her about a year to work off the 70 pounds she gained while pregnant with her daughter, Ever, 3. “I took my time with the weight loss,’ says Milla, who ballooned up to almost 200 pounds and credits the Five Factor Diet combined with a lot of good old-fashioned exercise for helping her get her body back in shape. “I didn’t do some rapid juice cleanse. I did well-balanced meals and didn’t eat after 7,” she says.
And Milla says there is a major bonus to slimming down slowly: “If you lose the baby weight at a normal, healthy pace that will leave less stretch marks. Rapid weight loss leaves scars on you.”
Unlike most A-list ladies who can’t wait to fit back into those tiny sample sizes, Milla embraces her new, more feminine figure. “I really enjoy having curves. I don’t want to look like a 15-year-old boy,” she tells HollyBaby.com. “I look great and don’t want to see bones. I want to see a healthy person.” Isn’t that refreshing?
While Milla’s busy promoting her new film Resident Evil: Afterlife, she and her husband, director Paul Anderson, 45, are already working on their next big project. “We do want more kids,” she says. “Motherhood is amazing!”
