Jennifer Lopez graces the cover of Us and opens up about losing the weight after welcoming twins Max and Emme with husband Marc Anthony in February 2008.
I remember my flabby belly hanging out right after I gave birth,” Lopez, 40, says. “I kind of laughed and said to Marc, ‘Look, baby! Isn’t this crazy?’ I just didn’t care.”
In hindsight, J.Lo admits that she feels differently about that “belly.” She says, “I look back at pictures from that time, and I’m like ‘Oh, god, I was fat. I was still heavy eight months out!'”
It was her two kids who inspired Lopez to shed 50 pounds. “You get to the point where you’re like, Where am I? What happened to me? I got to get myself together for my kids, you know? They need to know what I really look like.”
The Back-Up Plan star she’s “back to the size I was before I had the babies,” although her “rib cage” shifted while carrying the twins. “Before I was always able to fit into sample-size clothes from designers, and now they have to take them out just a bit…It’s no big deal.”

It sounds like adorable Honor may take after her movie star mom: Jessica traveled to Washington yesterday in her capacity as the Honorary Co-Chairperson for the 1GOAL: Education for All campaign. She talked to momlogic.com about the importance of education to children around the world:
“Having my daughter put my life into perspective. If there’s any way I can contribute to giving a voice to women and children so they can have more opportunities and a better chance at life, I will. I am so grateful to be in the position that I’m in.”

Home sweet home! A smiley Peter Andre arrived back in the UK at Gatwick airport with his two children – Junior, 4, and Princess Tiaamii, 2 – and his manager Claire Powell on Thursday (April 22) after being stuck in Dubai for nearly a week due to the volcanic ash crisis. The kids were all smiles as they rode their toys through the airport.
Andre revealed earlier this week that he is still recovering from the end of his marriage to the kids’ mama, Katie Price:
If you really loved them, you don’t get over it just like that. These things take time. A survey revealed last week that it takes the average person at least 18 months to recover from a divorce. I would totally agree with this.”
