Tracy Anderson posed with her 4-month-old daughter Penelope at the Tracy Anderson Method Pregnancy Project in New York City on Friday (October 5). Gwyneth Paltrow and Christy Turlington were two of the celebrity moms who showed up to the event.
The fitness trainer – who is married to Matt Mogol – was on the Today show with her baby to promote her new fitness DVD for pregnant women.
When asked about her comment to Dujour magazine where she had said, ”a lot of women use pregnancy as an excuse to let their bodies go” she was happy to explain.
She told Today, “I can completely see why they would take offense to that…I’m glad you brought it up because it just give me another opportunity to say that that is not what I meant and that was taken out of context as you know many times in interviews things are. […] I’ve built my career on empowering women and giving them the tools they need to look and feel their best and be their healthiest. Unfortunately during my first pregnancy I gained 60 pounds and it was really rough and I’ve learned later on in life that a healthier approach and having the tools to not do that is kind of a better way to go.”
She also has a 13-year-old son named Sam with ex-husband Eric Anderson.
