Amy Adams: “I Have A Muffin Top, And That’s OK”

The Muppets star Amy Adams sparkles in Valentino on the cover of InStyle’s December issue. The 37-year-old mother of daughter Aviana, 18 months, opens up about motherhood and her “muffin top” after giving birth.

On her postpartum body: “I read about these actresses who get on a stationary bike two weeks after giving birth and I’m like, ‘What? Where did you push your baby out of?’ Since having Aviana, I have a muffin top, and that’s OK right now.”

On motherhood: “I’m definitely not one of those women who make it look easy. I’m always running late – and look, there’s guacamole on my purse! But I’m more patient than I ever thought I would be, and I’m not hard on myself anymore.”

On balancing work and family life: “I have to trust that I can prioritize my family and myself while still finding the energy and focus for my work. And I believe I can. I know I can.”

      I don’t think she means NOW, I think she means after she gave birth. If you gave birth 18 months ago and STILL have a muffin top, then you’re not even trying.

    Some of these celebs make me laugh. They make juggling children and work sound like some incredible task for them. Do you think they have to worry about off setting childcare costs against their salary, piles of ironing, cleaning, not getting paid if they have to take time off because their child is sick and various other things that everyday Mum’s have to think about on top of caring for their child.

      Well, okay, they don’t have to worry about *those*things, but juggling kids and work can be a struggle for everyone.

      Just because someone has money and a flexible job doesn’t mean it’s all peaches and cream.

    At least Amy Adams is honest about motherhood being sometimes hard. She seems so much more grounded than many others who act like everything is too easy! She’s a breath of fresh air

    Her comment about the stationary bike cracked me up! It’s true, my lady parts were hurting bad a few weeks after giving birth, trying to heal the tear. I sat on a donut pillow for a good while.
