After staying tucked inside for most of her pregnancy and several months post delivery, actress Jennifer Garner stepped out and turned heads with her amazing post-baby body at a recent film event in Las Vegas.
Garner, 39, and husband Ben Affleck just welcomed their third child on Frebruary 27 – a baby boy named Samuel Garner Affleck. Based off all of the reports, their baby is healthy and doing well – as is mom. Samuel makes the first boy of their little brood, and will play little brother to big sisters Seraphina, 3, and Violet, 6.
Garner proudly showed off her healthy post-baby figure in a lace nude Dolce and Gabanna dress at the CinemaCon Festival in Vegas, where she is slated to receive the 2012 CinemaCon Female Star of the Year Award.
We reported several weeks back that Jen was taking her time to shed her post-pregnancy weight, which we were happy to see. It’s not every day that you see a celebrity mom taking time away for her family and not rushing to fit back into a red carpet dress.
To get back in shape post-baby gradually, Garner walks a ton. And not to mention while carrying kids, which is an arm workout in itself. But she also invites a yoga instructor to her home several times a week so she can ease back into the routine of being active.
For Jen, she that wants to lose the weight but it’s not her priority at the moment. She seems fine with easing back into pre-pregnancy shape naturally, and as time allows.
Because she was busy during her pregnancy playing mom to her two daughter, Garner admitted she didn’t have as much time to eat as healthy as she’d liked. But that she intends to try and get back on track and eating more thoughtfully now that the baby has arrived.
It’s down-to-earth actresses like Garner and Reese Witherspoon that bring some normalcy to the Hollywood realm, proving that it’s a good thing for moms to step away from work and focus on their family instead of spending hours at the gym. We love that.
See Garner in her upcoming Disney film “The Odd Life of Timothy Green,” which comes to theaters August 15.
