Embracing a post-pregnancy body is hard for everyone, but particularly if you’re a celebrity in the public eye. That’s why we applaud Alyssa Milano for giving us a refreshing dose of reality about her body’s transformation after having two children.

She told the Today Show that she didn’t rush into losing her baby weight, instead focusing on getting to know her new little ones.

She said that once she did hone in on her body, she worked out up to five times a week and followed a low-carb Atkins program, but never became obsessed with it. She just focused on staying fit and healthy so she can be the best mother to her 5-year-old son Milo, and 2-year-old daughter Elizabella.

Milano is also the brains behind the NFL women’s apparel line Touch by Alyssa Milano, which recently launched maternity offerings. She told Today that she feels like this is a significantly under tapped market, and emphasized the need for soon-to-be mothers to look and feel good.

Keep up the good work, Alyssa, we love all the body positivity.
