Ben Affleck Breast Feeding Jennifer Garner Parenting Violet Afflect

Jennifer Garner Allure Magazine Interview

Jennifer Garner is on the cover of Allure magazine this month. She discusses her marriage to Ben Affleck and being a mom to Violet. Here are some highlights of the interview:

On nursing:

All I ever heard was everyone bitch about it – nobody ever said, ‘You are not going to believe how emotional this is.’ It’s like, I’ll say I’m going to stop, and then I’m in there, feeding her.

On losing weight while nursing:

It happened to a lot of my girlfriends and sisters, and I really thought, ‘This is the ticket, the best diet in the world’ – and it just wasn’t. I kept waiting, and I just didn’t lose weight. It took six months before I did. I also, though, used breastfeeding as an excuse to eat whatever I wanted. I’ve always had a flat stomach, and now everyone’s just always going to think I’m two months pregnant for the rest of my life.

Enjoying her new found curves:

I could not motivate myself to work out. I wasn’t going to give up that time with Violet, and if she was asleep, I wanted to sleep, because I was working. It just didn’t seem important. [And] my body felt so much more balanced out. Because I’ve always had a biscuit [her term for her small breasts] and I’ve never had boobs, and so I finally felt like, ‘Oh, this is how it’s supposed to be.’

I like Jennifer Garner. What you see is what you get. She brings her own child to the park, plays with her in the dirt, lets her get dirty and kisses her after the day is done.

The average woman can relate to her because she is a real mom, not a made up image that puts on an act while out in public.
