Tiffani Thiessen: I'm Okay with My Post-Baby Body
"I’d love to be my size again but my body is just not that way,” Thiessen, 36, told PEOPLE at the launch of Crest Pro-Health Clinical Gum Protection Toothpaste. "It doesn’t work that way for me and I’m okay with that.”
After giving birth to daughter Harper Renn in June, new mom Tiffani Thiessen isn’t stressing about losing the baby weight.
“I’d love to be my size again but my body is just not that way,” Thiessen, 36, told PEOPLE at the launch of Crest Pro-Health Clinical Gum Protection Toothpaste. “It doesn’t work that way for me and I’m okay with that.”
The White Collar star, who gained just under 50 lbs. while pregnant, said that although she lost 30 lbs. right away she is having a much tougher time with what remains.
“These last 20 are really super stubborn,” notes Thiessen.
“When you’re running on four hours of sleep it’s a little hard to get motivated but I am definitely trying. I’m going to the gym three to four times a week and I started to run again. It’s about trying to balance and find the time to do it.”
One thing that the former 90210 star never has to find time for is spending time with 3-month-old Harper.
“She is a definite momma’s girl. She is very attached,” Thiessen said. “”When I’m nursing she just sits there and looks at me. She’ll sit there, then she’ll pull off and laugh. She is totally playing a game.”
So what’s next for this first-time mommy?
“I’m starting a new line [called] Petit Nest,” said Thiessen. “It’s baby furniture, bedding and wall art. We launch in October.”
