Karlie Kloss Reveals What Helps Her Post-Pregnancy Body Image – Hollywood Life
Karlie Kloss, 31, just welcomed her second child four months ago and is learning how to embrace her post-pregnancy body. The model, who is the mother of a son, Levi2, and four months old Eliasshe admitted to self-pity after having a conversation with herself about staying in shape.
“I had a conversation with myself a while ago because I want to be in shape but I also have more self-pity, because my body created life,” she said during a speech at an event for Theragun at Reset in New York City, NY, PEOPLE reported.
Karlie also appeared PEOPLE that the only thing off it when she was pregnant was her supermodel status. “Just being pregnant for nine months, I found my job therefore bad,” she admitted. “So now I’m relearning my whole anatomy and trying to fix it, straighten my back.”
Karlie, who shares her son with her husband Jared Kushner, she also opened up about her diet and fitness routine as a mother. “Let me tell you, I come from a long line of carb lovers,” she said. “I’m from the Midwest. I never even saw green juice until I was 20 years old. I eat what I want, but I try to listen to my body, although that has changed. I just do what I can to rest, recover and refuel my body.”
“Everything changes after children. My practice has improved. It has become more efficient,” she continued, talking about how she maintains her fitness in life. “I feel like my philosophy has gotten a lot more about strength in sustainable ways. So I do light weights and also body weight exercises. I still travel a lot, so I don’t always have a gym nearby. So I like to do things that I can do anywhere. And I like to squeeze in exercise first thing in the morning. Actually, the first thing I do in the morning is check my sleep data. I’m very competitive with myself over my sleep.”
When it comes to balancing her work life and motherhood, Karlie said she loves it. “They are delicious,” she said. “My 2-year-old is just, oh my god, he’s a sponge. He asks a million questions and is so curious and I feel like I see the world through his eyes. All the cliche things I find myself saying, I can’t even believe it. But it is very special. “
