On fake social media:
“In the age of social media, when you can edit your life in beautiful pictures, it’s important to remind moms that all of us are wearing yogurt and all of our hands smell like urine. When you present an unrealistic idea of perfection to people, it’s not fair.”
… says Kristen.

On her pregnancy diet and cravings:
“I just like food. If it can be digested, chances are I’ll want it. Pretty much what I normally eat, which is fairly healthy, but I give in a lot more to cravings. It occurs to me more often how delicious Kettle chips are when I’m pregnant. I give into my cravings more often because if I’m not going to do it now, when will I do it?”
… says Kristen, who is currently pregnant with her second child.
On losing the baby weight:
“I’d like to get back down to where I was before the baby. But if this is where my body wants to be, so be it. I’m not going to make myself miserable for the rest of my life trying to get back to where I was before.
“I refused to worry about something I could not change, and I still refuse. Look, I’m like any other woman. All this evolved b.s. that I’m telling you is my mantra: It’s not something I practice naturally.
“I had to surrender to not worrying about the way I looked, how much I weighed, because that’s just part of the journey of having a baby. I am not a woman whose self-worth comes from her dress size.”
… says Kristen, who gave birth back in March, in Redbook Magazine.

On how pregnancy made her love her body:
I look in the mirror and I think it’s the reverse body dysmorphia because I can understand what my shape is but I see Brooke Shields. And, it doesn’t make a lick of sense but it’s something that the baby’s giving me hormonally makes me feel really giggly and happy.
