Emma Willis has opened up about her post-baby body after having three kids, admitting that giving birth has ‘wrecked’ her.
The TV presenter is known for her fantastic figure and regularly shares her diet and exercise secrets, but the mum-of-three has revealed in an exclusive interview with OK! magazine that keeping in shape after giving birth hasn’t been easy.
Emma and her husband, Busted star Matt, recently celebrated the birthday of their youngest child Trixie – who was born a year ago.
The 41-year-old mum explained that it was after giving birth to her daughter that she really struggled to get fit again.
‘Yes, it was harder after the this one because I’m older. It wasn’t about losing weight, though – it was about strengthening my back again and getting fit so I can run around after three kids.
‘I’ll never be like how I was five years ago, but I wanted to make the best of myself as I am now.
‘I’m only just getting there, so it’s probably taken a year.’
But despite finding her postpartum recovery tougher this time around, Emma is feeling inspiringly positive about her body after recognising what it has achieved – even if doing so ‘wrecked’ her.
‘I feel like my body’s phenomenal. I’ve grown and given birth to three children.
‘It’s pretty wrecked through; having a baby just wrecks your body and it’s never the same again.’
The former Big Brother presenter also opened up about her husband Matt, who she tied the knot with back in 2008.
Revealing that her musician beau is also into fitness, Emma gushed, ‘He really does just keep getting better and better. I lucked out when I bagged him – he’;s amazing.’
Despite the pair having been married for nearly 10 years and sharing three children, Emma gave some insight into how they still keep their relationship exciting.
‘We’ve grown together but we’re still as excited around each other as we were when we first met.
‘I get excited when I know h’s coming home from tour. As much as things change, there’s a lot of stuff that’s still the same with us, which is nice.’
