Marcia Cross A Happy Mom

by in Celebrity Babies, Marcia Cross, Multiple Births

Marcia Cross, who had her twins just 3 months ago, says that she has almost hit her pre-pregnancy weight with just a few pounds to go.

She mentioned to reporters that she was still working on it, but it’s happening a lot faster than expected, at the recent launch for the Blackberry Curve in L.A.

I think it’s the end of those last few pounds, I hope,” she said. “It probably won’t happen until I stop breastfeeding!”

Meanwhile, she’s still enjoying new motherhood. “I’m so happy. Sometimes very tired, but mostly just a happy mother,” she said. “I like to get [the babies] out now, just go out and show them the world. Say hi to the flowers.”

Cross said her husband of 11 months, Tom Mahoney, has been a huge help: “He’s there every minute, and he’s as madly in love with them as I am. I don’t know what I would do if I had one of those husbands who was just not interested.”

As for whether they’ll stamp their passports for her Desperate Housewives costar Eva Longoria’s Paris wedding in July, Cross says she hasn’t decided – she hasn’t traveled with the twins yet.

“We’re going to go on a trial trip this weekend and see how it goes,” she said. “We have no idea what it’s going to be like traveling, so we’ll have to figure it out.”

There is a lot of stress out there for women to achieve their pre-baby figure and it bothers me.

It’s okay to carry a few extra pounds for a bit after having your child. Most women don’t start to really trim down until their babies start to walk, especially breast feeding moms who are trying to consume enough healthy calories to feed their own bodies plus the baby’s.

Give your self 3-5 months to get the routine down and the baby healthy and then buckle them into the stroller, hook up the strollometer and start to melt away the extra fat.
