Christina Aguilera Talks about Motherhood

Celebrities often appear to live a fancy, eccentric, and over-the-top lifestyle. Sometimes, however, we get a glimpse inside a celebrity's life and realize that they are human just like you and me. Christina Aguilera was recently on Oprah making a profound statement about her experience as a mother. Here's what she said...

Christina Aguilera stated that "she feels sexier having had a child." She went on to say, "I think as women, our bodies go through such amazing things, and we are superhuman," she said. "We give life, we give birth, we are our child's source of everything. Our bodies are not our own for a time period, and we givingly and willingly do so for our child. But then when we get them back, you feel that much stronger and that much better and more confident. Sure, I have a difference in my body than before, but I'm more confident in that."

This is such a great message for all moms. We are so hard on ourselves when we look in the mirror and often forget how beautiful the entire journey of pregnancy and childbirth really is. Stretch marks and extra curves are dreaded but the truth is we really do become more beautiful as mothers. Thanks Christina for reminding us of all the beauty we possess!
