Megan Fox Gained 23 Pounds During Pregnancy, Has 10 Still to Lose
(LOS ANGELES) — Megan Fox has been called the “sexiest woman in the world,” but she may be looking to pass on that title for now.
Fox, the star of “Jennifer’s Body,” gave birth to a son, Noah Shannon in September. She told the Daily Mirror she is planning to keep her clothes on now that she’s a mom.
“It changes your perspective about being overly sexual in a film when you have a baby,” said Fox, now 26. “I’m going to be more cautious about choosing films because I’m already thinking about when he’s in school and his friends are going to be showing him my photo shoots with me in a bikini and he’s going to be horrified.”
Fox, who is married to actor Brian Austin Green, looks like she may be close to her pre-baby weight, but she said she’s not rushing to drop the pregnancy pounds.
“I only gained 23 pounds when I was pregnant and I’m still 10 pounds heavier than I was, but I don’t want to kill myself trying to get back into shape because it’s not a priority right now,” she said. ”I’m too in love with Noah and I don’t want to be away from him. I don’t want to be at the gym, I just want to be home.”
This is Fox’s first child. She said she didn’t realize how much work having an infant was going to be. She said that she didn’t hire any at-home help — and that she and Green are exhausted and devoted to their little one.
“I always wanted to mother things and I constantly had a doll I was taking care of,” Fox said. “I don’t receive the same satisfaction from my career as I do from being a mother, so I’m really happy.
“But two weeks ago I said to Brian, ‘We have to get a night nurse or we’re going to get a divorce, because somebody’s got to sleep in this house or we’re going to kill each other.’”
