What a little cutie! Carnie Wilson and hubby Rob Bonfiglio sat down with Life & Style to discuss the arrival of their 4-week-old daughter, Luciana ‘Luci’ Bella Bonfiglio.
Well known for her struggles with weight, the 41-year-old Wilson Phillips songstress who once had gastric bypass surgery, says Baby Luci was more than worth the 60 pounds she gained while expecting. Also mom to 4-year-old Lola Sofia, Carnie opens up about knowing if it’s postpartum depression again, her weight loss goals and if she and Rob plan for baby boy Bonfiglio.
On gaining weight during pregnancy: “People gain weight when they have a baby, and someone like me, I gain more weight than I want to. I’m not hiding that. I’m not ashamed of that.”
On baby Luci: “She’s just a few weeks old but a very good baby.”
On co-parenting in these early months: “Rob can help change diapers and help with some bottle- feedings, but he’s kind of leaving it up to me. For the first month, it really is ‘mommy time,’ and Rob lies low. After that, the baby’s not as fragile.”

On watching for the signs of postpartum depression: “If the baby cries, she’s either hungry or has gas or a wet diaper, and that’s it. It changes every month, and I just know that so far it’s been a lot easier on my mind.”
On already losing 25 pounds, but wanting to lose another 35: “Now I think I’m reaching a point where it’s slowed down and the hard work is going to come in. My goal is to be somewhere between 150 and 160 pounds.”
On having another baby: “I’d love to have a boy, but I’m not going to do it again. I can’t predict the future, of course, but right now, no. I see my family as complete now.”View Slideshow »»
