Erica Messer can’t think of a more perfect day for Criminal Minds to turn 10.
“Episode 10.1 airs on 10/1. How cool is that?” Messer tells TVGuide.com. “It wasn’t planned. We didn’t know that until we started back up and we were well in the swing of things, and [CBS] mentioned that the premiere would be a little later than usual because of Extant and Survivor. So it’s great timing.”
But for Messer, “seven” is the magic number for Season 10. After Jeanne Tripplehorn left the series in the Season 9 finale, Messer told TVGuide.com at the time that she wasn’t sure if they would replace her or just stick with the remaining six BAU members. “It was a really big, long conversation with the network and the studio, and they said, ‘Let’s go ahead and try to find someone new,'” she says.
Enter Jennifer Love Hewitt as Kate Callahan. The actress was not only on the top of the network’s list because of her days on Ghost Whisperer, but she and Messer go way back to Party of Five.
“I knew her many, many moons ago at Party of Five,'” Messer says with a laugh.”So it was sort of, ‘Well, she just had a baby. We don’t know if she wants to go back to work or not.’ I sat down with her and caught up and it was like no time had passed. I then told her that the show is different from what she’s been doing because what she’s been doing is being No. 1 on the call sheet, having to be there 14 hours a day every day. … I think it was the combination of the actors on the show and the idea of doing something different. She has never fought crime like this. She’s an amazing addition. She’s laughing it up with the cast and crew and certainly believable as an FBI agent on screen. It’s been a breath of fresh air for us.”
But just who is Kate Callahan? What’s her secret? Get the scoop and more from Messer below.
1. Undercover boss
Kate is not who you think she is when we first meet her. That’s because she’s undercover collaring a perp before she heads to the BAU to interview with Hotch (Thomas Gibson), who hires her on the spot. “You see her interacting with a criminal in a way you don’t see our team doing it, which is she has to act like she enjoys being with this person before turning the tables on him,” Messer says. “One of the things she says to Hotch is, ‘It takes me a couple of months to catch one offender. You catch a new one every week. How do you do that and how do you not let it take over your life?’ She’s got to adapt to that skill set, which we’ll see throughout the season.”
2. Kate’s secret
Like the introduction of Blake (Tripplehorn), Kate has a mysterious backstory that viewers will get a peek at when we follow her home at the end of the season premiere. But unlike Blake, hers won’t be tied to an unsub or even keep you guessing that long. Hotch and Rossi (Joe Mantegna) already know her secret, which involves a plane crash, and she will tell Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) in the third episode. “Something pretty tragic happened in her life, but she wasn’t a victim necessarily,” Messer says. “Her secret is not like Blake’s at all. She’s been dealt a hand that most people aren’t dealt. There’s no secret in that, but she also doesn’t want it to be what defines her, certainly to the rest of the team.” The event is also partially what spurred Kate on to become an FBI agent. “She was on her way there with her psychology degree, but this happened at a very important time in her life,” Messer says. “It was her trigger, so to speak, and it informs why she’s as strong as she is. She’s very tough, smart and fearless.”
3. The long road to recovery
As we previously reported, Garcia (Kristen Vangsness) will be suffering from PTSD as a result of shooting the pseudo-nurse who tried to poison Reid in the season finale. In the second episode, she will meet with the guy in prison and get some closure, but look for it to pop up again. “[Meeting him] will certainly help, but I don’t think you move on from traumatic events completely, so it will come up here and there,” Messer says. “Morgan and Hotch really try to help her.” In better PTSD news, Reid will not fall back on Dilaudid after his brush with death in the finale. “He becomes even wiser,” Messer says. “You see how he’s dealing with it, but there’s nothing tragic. That’s definitely by design. He’s had a lot of tragedy, so maybe the surprising thing is we don’t go there.”
4. Jane Lynch is (maybe) back!
It’s been six years since we last saw Reid’s schizophrenic mom Diana, but now that Gleeis ending — with a shortened season at that — chances are looking very up for her to finally return. “We’ve been teased throughout the years that we could have her. We don’t want to get our hopes up again, but we’re starting to think of ideas,” Messer says, adding that a return would not occur until the second half of the season. Diana was most recently mentioned last year, when Reid learned that she’s been doing well and went on a supervised trip to the Grand Canyon. Because of that, Messer wants her return to be in a similarly positive vein. (Maybe she’s released from Bennington Sanitarium?) “The thing that brings her back can’t be sad and heartbreaking. We’ve seen that already,” she says. “We need to have a big splash to bring her back and we want to arc out what that could be.”
5. Don’t scratch
The season’s still young, but Messer promises that the fourth episode is the show’s “grossest episode yet.” There’s not much in the way of blood and gore, but the hour, titled “The Itch,” will be heavy on creepy crawlers, as it follows an unsub who believes he has cockroach larvae in his body. “He tortures people with live cockroaches because he wants them to believe him,” Messer says. “We had 1,500 live cockroaches on set. The psychological torture of this one is victim and audience alike! I kept squirming and closing my eyes when I watched it. It will creep people out!”
6. A love letter for you — yes, you!
To celebrate the big 1-0, Messer is planning a major midseason episode — similar to last season’s 200th episode — that will have many callbacks and possibly old faces from the last nine years. “I can’t talk about it yet, but I’ve got an idea. It’s going to be a giant team episode because those are my favorite,” she says. “It’s going to be a love letter to fans who’ve been with us all 10 years.”
7. Replicating The Replicator (story line)
For the second time ever, the series will feature a season-long unsub, who will be introduced at the end of the premiere after the BAU thinks they’ve closed the case of the week, which involves human limb collecting. Technically, they do solve the case, since the new, overarching one spans beyond chopping off some arms and legs. (Hint: It involves a wide-reaching network.) “The unsub is only part of the puzzle,” Messer teases. After touching on the case midway through the season, Messer plans to wrap up the story line in the last two episodes. “It will culminate in the finale. We try to break our last two episodes of the year as a movie. We know pretty much how Part 1 would end and how the finale would end. You’ll probably think one thing [after you see the premiere], but it’s bigger than you think.”
Criminal Minds airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on CBS.

“Criminal Minds” executive producer, Erica Messer, sat down with TV Fanatic to chat about the upcoming season of the series. TV Fanatic asked a few question about Jennifer Love Hewitt, as well as her character. You can check out the snippet below. They also talked more about the new cases, the 200th episode, and more. You can click the link after the article to view the rest of the interview.
We’ve been through this before, right?
New season of a long running show is about to kick off, but the new face to the show is a very familiar one to TV viewers. For Criminal Minds Season 10 it’s Jennifer Love Hewitt (Party of Five, Ghost Whisperer), as she joins the cast as Kate Callahan.
Executive Producer Erica Messer told me yesterday that she and her writers had Callahan start off on the right foot with the group from the start, explaining why in the exclusive interview below.
Also, we talked about personal stories to come and, this being Criminal Minds, some of the cases that just may have you looking away from your TV at times…
TV Fanatic: I really like how you integrated Jennifer Love Hewitt into the show in this premiere. She seems to get along with everybody pretty quick but was that your design or was that more organic just because of who Jennifer is?
Erica Messer: I think it’s a combination of both. She’s so lovely it’s hard to not like her and then it feels like it would be playing something really false to have any kind of conflict there and also it’s a little bit of a learning curve when we introduced Blake back in season 8 [and] there was a little bit of internal conflict.
The very nature of somebody new coming into our family and having a little bit of conflict with somebody was not really embraced by the audience and my fear with that was it kind of stuck with her longer than intended. It was actually just meant to bring another layer and a shade to it but instead I felt like it sort of had people not excited about her character and I certainly didn’t want to do that again. So this was a little combination of learning from the past but also just also the nature of who Love Hewitt is. She’s lovely on screen and off and the team, you know it seems only right for them to connect with her on the great and they certainly are connecting with her on the great.
TVF: That said, did you go about making sure that Kate Callahan was a little different than what we’ve seen in the past with other characters?
EM: Yeah, at this point we’ve had the show for so long and the audience definitely wants to come back and watch the team that they’ve known and loved for so long. So if we’re going to bring somebody new into that family the idea was they have to have a little bit of a different voice and a different skill set because they’re coming into a very established world…what I did with it was give her the background of going undercover and having to interact with bad guys on a long term basis and that’s something right off the bat that our team doesn’t have to do.
They go in every week and they find the bad guy and they bring him to justice weekly and the idea is there’s a whole other group at the FBI that doesn’t have that and I don’t know if the grass is greener there or not because what they have to do is dive in, sometimes for months, to really lure in these bad guys and it felt like why not have her character know the world, be familiar with the worst of the worst but she’s just had to deal with it in a completely different way and she pretty much says that to Hotch in their first interaction. “You find a bad guy every week. How do you not take that home with you?”
TVF: Would you say at least in the first episodes with her, is that her learning curve? How to shake it off when she’s doing this in a much faster pace than what she’s used to?
EM: It will sort of culminate by the end of the season. You’ll get the idea that it’s easier said than done to just let something go and Hotch gives you that look at the end of the premiere that he’s not letting it go either. So it’s not something that we will touch base with throughout the episodes but sort of the feeling of season 10 will be they don’t all let things go.
Get ready to meet the newest member of the BAU when Criminal Minds debuts its 10th season.
Ghost Whisperer alum Jennifer Love Hewitt is returning to CBS this fall as FBI Agent Kate Callahan, who will gladly fill the void at the BAU after Blake’s (Jeanne Tripplehorn) sudden exit in the season finale. The team will welcome her with open arms after spending the summer down a man, so to speak. How will she fit in? And what made Hewitt return to broadcast television? EW caught up with the actress to get the scoop.
EW: How did you joining Criminal Minds come together?
I had been on a break for a bit being a mommy. They were looking to add a new cast member and obviously I spent some time at CBS before, doing Ghost Whisperer. Honestly, I had always wondered and been waiting to find the perfect way to get back. My first CBS experience was so awesome. They’re great, and Les [Moonves] has been great to me. I was really excited when they called and asked to take a meeting. I met with [showrunner] Erica [Messer], who I’ve known since I was 14 from Party of Five. I hadn’t seen her in a really long time, so it was great to catch up with her. It all fit and the timing was perfect.
Tell us about Kate Callahan.
Kate is a really interesting woman. She comes to the BAU with her own experience, which I like. I wasn’t quite sure at first if I was going to be a newbie who hadn’t done this before. When they told me about her, I was really excited that she comes with her own background and talent. She had met the BAU team before in an interesting way, which they talk about in my first episode. It’s fun how they’ve all run into each other one other time before Kate gets added to the team. She has a lot of gumption. She’s very feisty. If she’s afraid of a bad guy, she doesn’t show it. She enjoys her job. She really enjoys understanding these people better and getting them put away.
It seems like she fits into the team very well. Is there anyone she doesn’t get along with?
No, pretty much just the bad guy. She has a rapport with everybody on the team. There isn’t a lot of awkwardness with Kate and these characters. She comes in and they remember her very quickly and they get to work. She has a big first day with this team on the job. It’s fun that way. Kate loves really good people in a very sarcastic, feisty way. She has a lot of respect for her comrades and the people she works with. She’s excited to be part of the team.
She’ll be paired up with Rossi (Joe Mantegna) a lot early on. How do they work together?
In the beginning, Rossi is who she’s with the most. I’d say Rossi and Hotch (Thomas Gibson) really are the people she’s with. I always say she’s like the Barney Fife to Hotch’s Andy. She gets really excited to go where he tells her to and be at his side in that way. She and Rossi have a really sweet connection. They have a lot of respect for each other and really enjoy working side by side. I’ve gotten to do a little bit of stuff with Morgan (Shemar Moore) recently, which has been fun. I obviously work with everybody, but those three characters in particular seem to be where I am. Hotch and Rossi are the first two to know Kate’s background story, so they’re very kind to her and supportive of her own personal life story.
Can you say anything about her backstory?
You will get to know it pretty quickly into the season. It’s not like a cliffhanger or anything, but it explains a lot about what some of her triggers will be, why she’s so willing to be feisty and finds real disgust in these people that she has to deal with on a daily basis.
She starts out undercover in the premiere. Is that an expertise she’ll bring to the team more this season?
I hope so. We haven’t done it again yet, but it’s only the beginning of the season. I really had fun with the undercover part of it in the beginning. I’m hoping it’s something she’ll get to use because it is different.
How is this character different from the roles you’ve played in the past?
For me, it’s completely different. Coming off of [The Client List], which was so incredibly different, they couldn’t be more different characters. For [Ghost Whisperer’s] Melinda, there wasn’t a bad guy. Melinda really came up against a lot of super scary people in a totally different way than Kate does. Kate comes up against real life, scary, creepy bad guys. For Melinda, most of the time those people ended up being dead and she was able to find empathy for them. Kate has absolutely no sensitivity for these people just because she believes in the right in people, doing things the right way and not hurting other people. Melinda could understand why these people could do these things and she had to understand in order to get these people to the light. It’s fun, I obviously dress much different on this show than I have in the things that I’ve been in the past and I have a different haircut. It’s the first time I’ve been on a show that I’m not producing and didn’t put together. I’m just a cast member. It’s their house and I’m just really honored to be invited in. It’s fun for me. It’s different in every way possible, but it’s really great.
You brought some great comedy to Hot in Cleveland. Does Kate bring levity to the team?
She does. She has a really fun sense of humor. She’s very sarcastic, and sometimes makes a joke when it’s inappropriate to make a joke. She loves to have zingers with the bad guy, like land something right as she’s leaving the room. It’s a fun part to her. I was really excited that Erica let me bring a sense of humor into this world.
Michael Ausiello caught up with the show boss, Erica Messer, for “Criminal Minds” and he got her to spill a little information on Jennifer Love’s character of Kate Callahan. Check out the info below. I’m getting excited for the premiere, aren’t you guys?!
Question: Any news on Jennifer Love Hewitt’s Criminal Minds character? —Michael
Ausiello: Turns out that the the BAU team previously made the (off screen) acquaintance of J.Love’s character — because FBI agent Kate Callahan apparently was on hand for their bar-closing karaoke night last season. Nonetheless, they’re a bit startled by the way she resurfaces in their world. “You see [Kate] doing something you don’t see our team ever doing, which is schmoozing with a bad guy, working undercover to take a pedophile down,” show boss Erica Messer shares. “We’ve never seen our team pretend to like a criminal, so right off the bat she’s different in that way.”
Happy baby! Jennifer Love Hewitt gushed about her baby daughter Autumn to Us Weekly at the CBS Annual Summer Stars Party held Thursday, July 17, at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood.
“I feel really happy,” Hewitt, 35, told Us of her life, which went through a series of ups and downs within the last year. “It’s been a whirlwind,” she said while elaborating: “Losing my mom was quite shocking, and finding the love of my life and having a baby…. all of it just kind of like hit me. But it’s great. It’s really great.”
The Client List star welcomed her first child, daughter Autumn James, with her costar Brian Hallisay in late November. Shortly after their little girl’s arrival, the couple wed in secret.
Motherhood, according to Hewitt, has been surprisingly doable. “You have nine months [to prepare],” Hewitt told Us, “and you’re terrified. You’re like, ‘There’s not going to be any way that I can do this!'”
The star added, “There are still days when you wake up and you’re like, ‘I’m not going to be able to do this.’ And then the day’s over, and you’re like, ‘I did that! This is awesome! I can do it tomorrow.’ And then you wake up, and you do it again. It’s great.”
As for baby Autumn’s milestones? “She’s going to be 8 months,” the actress gushed. “She’s just smiling and laughing all the time. We call her the Happy Buddha. She just is like constantly joyful, and it’s just invigorating to your soul. And you suddenly go, ‘Oh, my gosh, life is this really exciting thing!'”
CBS’ Criminal Minds will fill the void left by Jeanne Tripplehorn’s departure with a lotta Love.
TVLine has learned that TV vet Jennifer Love Hewitt is joining the crime drama during Season 10 in a series regular role.
She will play Kate Callahan, a seasoned undercover agent whose stellar work at the FBI has landed her a coveted position with the Behavioral Analysis Unit. The character will be introduced in the Oct. 1 season premiere.
“We’re thrilled to introduce a new special agent by adding the very talented Jennifer Love Hewitt to our amazing cast,” says Minds showrunner Erica Messer. “Many of us on the show have enjoyed working with her over the years and look forward to again. We have exciting storylines planned for her character and the entire BAU team as we head into our 10th season.”
News of Love’s casting comes seven weeks after Criminal Minds‘ May finale saw Tripplehorn’s Alex Blake signal her decision to part ways with the BAU, after a two-season stint.
Hewitt’s previous credits include Party of Five (and subsequent short-lived spin-off), Ghost Whisperer, The Client List and a couple of I Know What You Did Last Summer movies.
Jennifer Love Hewitt stopped by E! News to chat with Giuliana Rancic and Terrence J. about her new baby girl Autumn and to show off her new maternity line called “L By Jennifer Love Hewitt.” To view the full 4-minute interview, you can check it out here. Enjoy!
Jennifer Love Hewitt loves being a mom!
Autumn’s mommy stopped by E! News and couldn’t help but gush about motherhood. “I just feel like my heart expanded quadruple and every time I look at her, I just melt. It’s great. And I get no sleep which is also fun,” she tells us.
Husband Brian Hallisay seems to be getting the hang of fatherhood, too. “He’s great, he handles it great. He looks at me sometimes like I’m a crazy person, especially right in the beginning when we got home with her, he was like, ‘You look a little crazy.’ I’m like, ‘All right, we’ll talk about it later,’ ” JLH joked.
Along with expanding her heart, going through pregnancy and having her first child inspired the actress to launch a maternity clothing line!
“Well for me it’s a time in your life when you want to feel really beautiful and it’s a struggle sometimes because you’re expanding and you’re changing and your hormones are all over the place,” the star says of her Pea in the Pod line L by Jennifer Love Hewitt, “so comfort was a big thing for me, and I really wanted to—as a woman—make other women feel beautiful and special in their clothes.”
Watch the clip to see some of the styles she created!
With a new baby and a new husband, it was a busy winter for Jennifer Love Hewitt. But the mom of now 4-month-old Autumn James couldn’t be happier about her new roles.
“Those first couple of nights, it was wild,” the actress, 35, told PEOPLE at the launch of her maternity line for A Pea in the Pod on Tuesday in Beverly Hills.
“When they let us bring her home I said to [husband, actor Brian Hallisay], ‘To get your license you have to take a test. They check to make sure you’re a good human being to get behind the wheel of a car. They’ve given us no test! We just had a baby and now we’re going home.’ He was like, ‘I know, it’s terrifying!’”
Thankfully, Dad is up for the challenge. “He’s fantastic. He’s great at diaper changing and at the football hold, which she loves,” says Hewitt.
“It’s really 50-50. I feel very lucky that way! I do the stuff that I need to do as a mom and he does the dad part.”
Aside from his amazing fatherhood skills, Hallisay, 35, was a powerhouse in the delivery room.
“The labor was crazy. It was fantastic, but I just couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that that was happening,” Hewitt says. “[Brian] was the best during labor. He was a rock, never flinched. He got in there and was like, ‘I see the baby!’ I was looking at him like, ‘You should be a doula.’ I was really proud of him.”
The pair wed just a few days before Autumn was born with a simple, no-frills celebration. “It was just the two of us,” Hewitt reveals. “We went to our favorite Mexican restaurant afterwards, that was our reception. We loved it. It’s been fun to celebrate both.”
The couple rounded out the low-key affair with a visit to Bed Bath & Beyond, where they purchased a few items for their kitchen. “We’ve been through a lot already in our marriage. I’m really glad that it happened that way,” says Hewitt, who adds they are not planning a honeymoon.
And Hewitt is a working mom already. The star has designed a collection called L by Jennifer Love Hewitt, inspired by her own desire to find “cute” pregnancy clothes.
“This was something I could do [during my pregnancy] that was super creative and sending good yummy vibes to my belly. It was so beautiful to be able to put my energy [in] to making [moms-to-be] feel comfortable and special. It was really fun.”
When it comes to her post-pregnancy figure, Hewitt is taking it slow. For now, her “number one priority” is nursing — and not counting calories. “The most important thing is [Autumn] getting food,” the actress explains.
But it has taken Hewitt some time to approach shedding the pregnancy pounds at her own pace.
“Having been somebody who has had to think about what my body looked like for 25 years, it was hard when it didn’t come off. I didn’t look like some of the girls in the magazines that I’ve worked with … who [the weight] does fall off for,” she says. “I was like, ‘What’s wrong with me?’ I had to have a conversation with myself.”
Ultimately, it was the realization that she had just given birth to a daughter that shifted the new mom’s views. “I had to look at her and think, ‘Would I want her to feel this way when she’s my age?’ I was like, ‘Get it together – your head’s in the wrong place.’”
She continues, “It took nine months to get it this way, it might take nine months to get it back. If I have an hour to go to the gym or an hour to lie down and take a nap with her in my arms, I’m going to lie down and take a nap.”
Now, regaining her svelte shape has become a team effort. Hewitt is easing back into workouts with swimming and Zumba classes with baby girl by her side.
“I hold her, we do squats, we dance, she listens to the music and she loves it. Or I put her in her little chair and she watches and thinks it’s really funny,” she shares. “[Working out is] really jarring to your body. I don’t know how people go back and do CrossFit a week later. It’s just not me. I’m slowly getting back into it. I’m not that worried.”
That leaves plenty of time for bonding with her daughter. Hewitt confirms the couple didn’t find out the sex ahead of time, but she had an inkling the baby would be a girl.
“I just had a feeling,” Hewitt explains. “My mom passed away not too long before we found out that I was pregnant. So the whole time I felt like it was a gift from her, that she’d send me our relationship in a way.”
And Autumn James — whose moniker comes from Hewitt’s wish to have a “feminine first name and a masculine middle name” — is taking after her own mom already.
“She’s a hybrid [of us],” says Hewitt. “She looks like Brian from the nose up, and when she smiles, she looks like me! It’s so cute.”
We still can’t believe that Jennifer Love Hewitt and husband Brian Hallisay got married only five days before she gave birth to their daughter Autumn back in November!
“She came early!” the 35-year-old actress told us exclusively of her quickie, low-key wedding (it was just the two of them) last night. “It was just under the wire.”
So what did Hewitt wear to tie the knot while nine months pregnant? “I wore the only thing in my closet that fit me!” she laughed, adding, “Which was a really nice cotton maxi dress and that was it!”
Hewitt says she and Hallisay have no plans for a big wedding celebration in the future. “I think that was it,” the new mom smiled. “I think that it was perfect the way that it was.”
Hewitt says motherhood is going “great” and that Hallisay is an amazing father. “He’s really hands-on,” she gushed. “It’s really fifty-fifty for us. He’s a tremendous father.”
And it sounds like Hewitt and Hallisay may be expanding their family sooner rather than later! “I’d love to have another one!” she said without hesitation. “Loved the whole experience. I’d do it again tomorrow.”
Meanwhile, at lat night’s L by Jennifer Love Hewitt launch party at A Pea in the Pod, Hewitt opened up about the difficulties of dealing with one’s post-pregnancy body.
“It’s hard, it’s really hard,” Hewitt admitted. “And I wasn’t sure where I was going to fall and what was going to happen and how I was going to feel. It just feels great to sort of be honest about the fact that it is tough and these clothes make it a little easier, make me feel beautiful. I’m still in a lot of my pregnancy clothes and there is just where I feel good right now. Everything hasn’t returned back to where I want it to be and put on my other clothes and feel good about that.”
“If your priorities are right, the baby’s most important,” she went on. “You have to eat to feed to your baby. And I have a girl so I want her to see some day why her mom has good self-esteem and good body issues. It gets you down sometimes, I’m not going to lie. I’ve had days where I’m like, ‘Ugh, I wish this was easier.’ But it’s not, and that’s OK.”
Jennifer Love Hewitt is back in the spotlight after hiding at home with baby Autumn. The actress, who became a first-time mom on November 26, 2013, has opened up to Ellen DeGeneres about all the changes her body has gone through in the past year.
Referring to her previous appearance on the talk show in April 2013, the wife of Brian Hallisay explained, “I was already pregnant and I couldn’t tell anybody. The wardrobe [department] put me in this dress and I had to be just like, ‘Oh, awesome. This looks great.’ And [my boobs] were like up here and I came out and all I saw was your face and you were like, ‘Hey!’ And then [guest co-host Matthew Perry] was like, ‘hi,’ and I was like, ‘Hello!’”
Since giving birth to the “fantastic” Autumn James Hallisay, Jennifer Love Hewitt has been intentionally taking it easy on herself regarding losing the baby weight.
Speaking to E! News, the 35-year-old actress, who is pictured here on April 1 at the launch party for her new A Pea in the Pod maternity clothing line, shared, “It just feels great to sort of be honest about the fact that it is tough and these clothes make it a little easier, make me feel beautiful. I’m still in a lot of my pregnancy clothes and there is just where I feel good right now.”
“If your priorities are right, the baby’s most important. You have to eat to feed to your baby. And I have a girl so I want her to see some day why her mom has good self-esteem and good body issues. It gets you down sometimes, I’m not going to lie. I’ve had days where I’m like, ‘Ugh, I wish this was easier.’ But it’s not, and that’s OK.”
Sharing an attitude I think is noteworthy, Jennifer went on to say that during pregnancy, when thinking about the pressure to be thin just after giving birth like other celebrity moms have managed, “I wasn’t sure where I was going to fall and what was going to happen and how I was going to feel.”
I like that attitude, appreciate it leaves room for whatever may come to pass. Often, those of us who had a hard time losing weight after giving birth find it all too easy to get frustrated with those who did so with little or no effort, and I try and be mindful that their experiences are no less important.
One time, sitting with both my own mom and my mother-in-law, we got to talking about leaving the hospital post-baby. While my mom commiserated with my struggle to even get my heavily swollen feet into my slippers — forget the notion of putting on real pants and pass the pajamas — my mother-in-law pointed out she zipped right into her pre-pregnancy jeans right after delivering each of her three babies. My mom’s jaw dropped a little bit.
For the record, they’re both fairly thin women and always have been. I guess you just never know how that particular cookie is going to crumble. Nom.
