Celebrity Moms Struggle To Take Off The Weight After Birth Too

gisele_bundchen

Except Gisele Bundchen, of course…who probably nibbled on lettuce and worked out six hours every day until the weight shed.

After popping out a baby it is hard to lose that weight. But can you imagine how hard and stressful it must be for a celebrity mother who needs to get down to where they were in order to get a job on a film or back in that swimsuit for a modeling gig? Well, yeah it would suck. Having an unlimited amount of money for trainers and nannies to care for your little ones make it a whole hell of a lot easier for celebs. Other than for Gisele Bundchen who makes it look so easy, there are some celebrity mothers out there who found it to be a HUGE struggle to get back the bod they once had.

Check out five stars who found it very difficult to take off the baby weight here via our friends at Girls Talkin Smack.

Selena Gomez spent her Mother’s Day with her mama Mandy Teefey and it just so turns out that Sell Bell’s mama is going to be a mama one more ‘gain. On Sunday, the Come and Get It singer posted a photo of herself holding her mom’s baby bump with the following caption, “Hope all the amazing moms had a great day! I have the best momma in the world ) I love you so much!”

In a recent interview with Glamour magazine, Gomez talked about being raised by a single mom. “I definitely didn’t appreciate [my upbringing] when I was little,” she said. “I was frustrated that my parents weren’t together and never saw the light at the end of the tunnel where my mom was working hard to provide a better life for me.”

Check out a photo of Selena Gomez and her mama (and her baby bump) here.

Khloe Kardashian Isn’t Desperate For A Baby

khloe-kardashian

This month, Keeping up with the Kardashians star, Khloe Kardashian glows on the cover of REDBOOK. In the June issue, the reality star, and now fashion designer opens up about her pregnancy challenges, married life, and famous family.

Check out the highlights from the interview below.

On sharing her desire to get pregnant with the world:

I do think my difficulty getting pregnant has helped a lot of women. Do I wish people would quit asking me about it 24/7? Yes, but I don’t regret it. I was 26 when that started, and I admit, I didn’t know a lot about my body. It was hard for me to understand what was happening because my mom had six kids and Kourtney got pregnant quickly. People assume I’m desperate for a baby. And yes, I would love to have a baby. But I’m 28, and I’ve been married three and a half years. I love my life, but it doesn’t feel incomplete right now.

On whether she has been diagnosed with a fertility problem:

It’s more about my hormones being off. I was taking hormone shots to stabilize them, and you have to take those shots consistently and they have to be done by a doctor—you can do them yourself, but I couldn’t. And then after your cycle, you have to go to the doctor for ultrasounds and more testing. And if I’m in Miami and miss a treatment, I have to start all over again. It’s a commitment and I don’t mind doing it, but the timing was just off .

On rumors that she resents Kim for being pregnant:

Please. People want to assume that I’m devastated. I couldn’t be happier. I actually got mad at Kourtney, because she was afraid to tell me at first. So I get why people think I’m hurt, because my own sister thought I would be.

On welcoming Kanye West into the family:

I love Kanye. We’ve known him since 2004. He always had a crush on Kim, but she was never into him at the time. I’d always told Kim they were like two peas in a pod, and she would never listen. Then one day she says, “I think I like Kanye.” I was like, “Since when?”

You’ll Never Guess What Kerry Washington Wanted To Be When She Was Growing Up

Introducing ELLE’s June cover girl: Kerry Washington! The Scandal star poses for her first-ever major fashion magazine spread wearing Marc Jacobs. In her interview, the actress opens up to the magazine about her current success, getting red-carpet ready, and the career she always thought she’d pursue (hint: it isn’t acting!) The issue hits newsstands nationwide on May 21st.

Check out the highlights below:

On the career Washington thought she’d pursue:

“I imagined I’d be a clinical psychologist, with a focus on how performance shapes identity. I’d figure out ways to use role-playing in the healing of people.”

When asked if as a girl she thought she’d ever consider modeling or becoming a film actress:

“I was not that girl. I was a kooky theater kid, silly and goofy and academic.”

On getting red-carpet ready:

“I found out I enjoy the process. All these people show up at my house, they all have kits, someone has dresses. And it’s like, Let’s have fun. It’s not all about me. We’re able to create stories on the red carpet.”

On her current success:

“I’m the luckiest broad in Hollywood now. To be the lead actor on Scandal and to be in the highest-earning Tarantino movie- I don’t get to ask for more.”

Selena Gomez Says She and Justin Don’t “Focus On The Attention” From Public

Selena-Gomez

Selena Gomez is on a big fat promotional tour for her new music and she just landed the cover of InStyle magazine’s June issue for 2013. In the issue’s interview, Sell Bell chats about her fashion line, her new music and yes, Justin Bieber (of course!). Check out the highlights of the interview below.

On dating Justin Bieber:
“It’s uncomfortable that everywhere I go, people know. I don’t like that. But Justin and I never really focused on the attention. You can’t help who you date. So I wouldn’t swear off that or say that’s what I want again.”

On mending a broken heart:
“I’m a kid, and a breakup is normal. I have to go through the emotions and feel it out. I’m doing my own thing, being with friends, and he [Justin] is doing very well too.”

On her song “Love Will Remember” about her breakup with Bieber:
“That’s the most personal track on the record, for sure. I think it’s a sweet way of releasing it. It’s not an aggressive approach to what people are probably expecting. I’m sure he’ll love it too.”

On her clothing line “Dream Out Loud”:
“I remember I was younger and kids in school would be wearing $40 sweaters and other things I couldn’t buy. I wanted to make a line that was super cute and affordable, things a 12-year-old could wear and I could wear too. I like to wear things that are fitted because they give me more shape. I like to show a little bit of skin in a nice way. The idea of trying to get on a best-dress list stresses me out. I’m so nervous. I love picking out clothes and it would be a blast to just play dress-up all the time.”

The Voice Contestant Releasing New Music!

terry-mcdermott

OH em gee! FINALLY, somebody from The Voice is releasing music that doesn’t totally suck!

Singer, songwriter, musician TERRY McDERMOTT has released “Pictures,” the first single off his forthcoming EP due out later this summer and first since placing second on NBC’s “The Voice” last season.

The creation process for “Pictures” was fast as was its rise up the iTunes Rock Singles chart. Less than a week after it was written, much less recorded and mastered, it hit #1. In addition, the official music video for “Pictures” has been viewed over 41,000 times. The #1 track will be included the 5-song Pictures EP.

Shortly following his successful run on “The Voice,” the New Orleans-based musician flew to Los Angeles to write songs with Todd Burman, a musician with whom he had toured with in the past. On their first day writing together, McDERMOTT and Burman had completed “Pictures” and recorded a rough version. The following day the song was posted to Soundcloud and the response was immediate. Without proper promotion, “Pictures” received 26,000 hits on the first day it was posted.

“Todd was a big supporter while I was on the show, and the first thing I did when it was over was call him,” TERRY recently shared in an interview with Examiner.com. “We went to his house in Hollywood and sat there with a guitar and solidified everything really quickly. I remember we both had a similar vision of what we wanted the song to be about, but from different angles. I was looking at it more from the point of a lost love or girlfriend, and Todd was looking at it as more of a family member.”

Chris Brown was nowhere in sight. It seems as if these two could be done with each other…for now.
