Star of ET and, more recently, Blended, Drew reinforces what all mothers know about how her body’s changes are worth it thanks to the beautiful children it created

Drew - who has daughters Olive, two, and Frankie, 11 months, with husband Will Kopelman - feels like a “kangaroo” and admits it isn’t always easy to feel body confident any more.

She said: “After making two babies, holy cow, does your body do some crazy stuff!

“It’s hard to stay positive and love yourself.

“You feel like a kangaroo with a giant pouch; everything’s saggy and weird.”

The 40-year-old actress takes comfort in the fact carrying a child is a “beautiful” process and says spending time with her daughters helps put her concerns into perspective.

She added to America’s Glamour magazine: “But you think about how beautiful it is that you’re able to make children.

“When I lose sight of that, I exercise, read Dr. Seuss’s ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go!’, and spend time with my kids. Then I start to see things that are bigger than myself.”
