Many news moms have to deal with societal pressure to “get back in shape” after giving birth – and celebrities are no exception. Jennifer Lopez recently admitted that she dealt with a lot of insecurity and struggled with body image after giving birth to her twins.
Lopez had two children from her marriage with ex-husband Marc Anthony – Maximilian “Max” David Muniz and Emme Maribel Muniz. They’re both 15 now and finding their own path in the world, but their mom admitted things weren’t easy when she gave birth to them in 2008.
Lopez admitted she struggled with body image after becoming a mom while presenting her personal trainer Tracey Anderson with the Outstanding Achievement in Fitness award at the Daytime Beauty Awards. She thanked Anderson for coming into her life at the right time and helping her realize she was stronger than ever after giving birth.
“I met Tracy right after I had my twins. I called her at a time when I was feeling insecure and uncertain, wondering if I would ever get back to how I was before — as most new moms do after giving birth. She came into my life and helped me embrace the new me,” said Lopez in her speech.
