Rebecca Romijn is the X-Men star, Ugly Betty star and wife of actor Jerry O’Connell. She gave birth to the couple’s twin daughters on December 28, 2008 and is telling how to lose postpartum weight. Breastfeeding is the key, she says to getting back into shape after giving birth. Read about it below and see some sexy video and photos of her.
When most people think of Rebecca Romijn’s breasts, they aren’t thinking of breastfeeding. But that’s what has put her breasts into the news this week. Her name is pronounced like Rebecca Romain and she used to be known as Rebecca Romijn-Stamos and is claiming that she lost 60 pounds after giving birth to her twin girls about 4 months ago. Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip were born on December 28, 2008 to Romijin and her husband Jerry O’Connell. She claims the weight loss is solely due to breastfeeding as she hasn’t done anything else to get back into shape.
“I think within the first three weeks, I took off like 35 lbs. without doing anything!” says says. “I haven’t been able to work out that much because I have twins. It’s impossible to get back into a regular schedule.”
She does admit that she’s not completely back into the shape she was in prior to pregnancy, but still, she’s done awfully well and gives the credit to breastfeeding. Personally, who wouldn’t want to look like Rebecca Romijn just as she is postpartum? She looks fantastic.
Her name is often misspelled as Rebecca Romijin. Also, she used her the name Rebecca Romijn-Stamos while she was married to actor John Stamos from September 19, 1998. She returned to her maiden name after their divorce on March 1, 2005, which adds to some of the confusion about her name.
Romijn is 36-years-old and married actor Jerry O’Connell on July 14, 2007. Their daughters are named after Dolly Parton and Jerry’s brother Charlie and Rebecca’s sister Tamara.
Some women have difficulty breastfeeding due to not producing enough milk. Others experience n*pple pain in the beginning and uterine cramping. Many women give up trying because of these problems with breastfeeding. Its certainly understandable and is a personal choice every new mother makes.
The benefits of breastfeeding are pretty obvious. Its nature’s way of providing nutrition for the baby. Babies who are breastfed tend to have fewer allergies and illnesses throughout childhood. Many of us feel its just a lot easier to breastfeed. You don’t have to get up and mix formula, or heat bottles. Breastfeeding does help the mother to get back into shape. The uterine cramping is due to contractions that are brought about by the nursing. It is certainly painful in the beginning, but over the long run the pain subsides and it helps the muscles of the uterus to get back into shape. Breastfeeding reduces the risks a woman will get breast cancer later in life.
The benefits go on and on. But as with most things, its a personal choice that only the mother can really make and is not anyone else’s business. She has to decide what’s best for her and her baby. Making the decision not to breastfed doesn’t make a woman a bad mother by any means.
