British television presenter Ulrika Jonsson gained 70lbs while pregnant with her fourth child Malcolm Charles Trip, now 8 1/2 weeks old. Tired of the “derogatory comments” made about her weight – she retaliated by writing a column in the Daily Mail.
While pictures of my ever-growing body have been appearing in scores of magazines, often accompanied by derogatory comments, it has been comforting to find that my husband has taken a shine to my newly-upholstered derriere.
Jonsson, 40, also talks about the “relentless pressure” on female celebrities to quickly lose weight after pregnancy, which she calls “both insidious and damaging”.
I’m sure sane women everywhere will agree when I say I felt like tearing up those pictures of Nicole Kidman and Halle Berry when they popped up with ironing-board-flat stomachs days after giving birth.
