‘I’ll Always Have My Curves… My Body Reflects I’m A Mum,’ Says Holly Willoughby

Section: Celebrity Mums

Body hang-ups (or lack of) and hell no to six sessions of gym a week, Holly Willoughby says she’s proud of her post-pregnancy body…

32-year-old This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby recently revealed she celebrates her mum curves because they’re part of who she is.

‘I’m 5ft 8in and a size 12 — I’ll always have curves,’ the star told reporters, who’s mum to Harry, four, and daughter Belle, two. ‘I’m proud to have had two children and my body reflects I’m a mum.’ 

Not only does Holly accept her body, she was, in fact, chuffed to grow her famously curvy figure. ‘At school I was known as flat-chested Willoughby, so I was delighted when I developed hips and boobs.’

Holly admitted she does live a healthy lifestyle, but explained that obsessive gymming isn’t really her bag. ‘I’m useless at exercising, but I walk a lot and watch what I eat. I don’t know how people find the time to go to the gym six times a week.’

‘I love food. I’ll start with cereal or boiled eggs for breakfast, a salad or soup for lunch and spag bol or tuna and veg for dinner. When I was pregnant with Harry, I craved Kraft cheese slices.’ And when it comes to non-pregnancy food vices, they come in the shape of crisps, chip butties and Haagen-Dazs chocolate ice cream.

But, while Holly is proud of her body, a little nip and tuck in the future isn't out of the question. She added, ‘I’m happy with the way everything is, but I know at some point I will have a little something done. I wouldn’t, however, go to the extreme and end up looking like the Bride of Wildenstein. If people want it to make them feel better, good for them. But it can be addictive.’

It’s nice to hear a celeb celebrate their curves. Are you proud of your mum figure, too? If so, how have you learned to love it?
