Shanna Moakler Says Kids Are Worth the Weight Gain
Shanna Moakler loves her post-baby body and insists there is no Hollywood secret to being thin.
“I look at my children and I am thrilled that my body will never be the same after having them,” 32-year-old mother of three says. “They were worth it!”
Writing on her MySpace page, the actress tells readers she’d “rather be called Shanna porker and be a healthy average WOMAN, th[a]n do what most do, to get that thin.”
“Most ‘starlets’ have plastic surgery, they use pills, drugs, or they live in the gym for 4 to 6 hours a day,” writes Moakler. “It took 9 months[;] it might take a year getting back!”
For the Dancing with the Stars alum, post-natal body shape should be embraced – not despised: “Stop beating yourself up!! It will all go back!!”
The former Miss USA is mother to daughters Atiana, 8 – from her relationship with ex-fiancé, boxer Oscar De La Hoya – and son Landon, 3, and 19-month-old Alabama.
Her younger children were fathered by Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker, who filed for divorce last August after less than two years of marriage.
Moakler applauds the accuracy of a PEOPLE report on her “devastating” failed reconciliation with Barker – but they have since been spotted sharing parenting duties – and she promises to explain to eager readers of her blog her own weight-loss regime.
“I’ve had a lot of questions about pregnancy and getting in shape,” she says. “I promise I will post another answering all those questions.”
