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.”
