Megan Fox Wows on First Red Carpet Appearance After Son’s Birth
Star promotes new comedy, talks about the joys of motherhood
There is no denying that Megan Fox is a gorgeous woman but, according to ongoing reports, she could easily be one of the Angels from Victoria’s Secret, seeing how they’re famous for bouncing back into shape weeks after giving birth.The actress too has made a spectacular return to the spotlight after the birth of her first child, a baby boy named Noah, for the premiere of the comedy “This Is 40,” in which she plays a supporting role.
Looking stunning in a white, see-through, lace dress, Megan gushed to reporters about pregnancy, the joys of motherhood and how she only gained 23 pounds (10.4 kg) while pregnant, as Us Weekly reports.
She’s yet to get back to her pre-pregnancy figure (though she could have fooled us), but she’s in no rush to head back to the gym, not when that means being away from her baby boy.
“I only gained 23 pounds when I was pregnant and I'm still 10 pounds [4.5 kg] heavier, but I don't want to kill myself trying to get back into shape because it's not a priority right now,” Megan told reporters.
“I'm too in love with Noah and I don't want to be away from him. I just want to be home,” she added.
On the same occasion, the former “Transformers” star talked about how motherhood also forced her to reconsider her stance on her image in film.
Before, it was ok to be perceived as a sensual pin-up because of the roles she picked, but no more.
“It changes your perspective […] when you have a baby. I'm going to be more cautious about choosing films because I'm already thinking about when he's in school and his friends are going to be showing him my photo shoots with me in a bikini and he's going to be horrified,” Fox said, thinking many years into the future.
“So that will deter me from making some of the choices I made before,” she added.
In another recent interview, Megan talks about the day her water broke, motherhood in more specific terms and her relationship with husband Brian Austin Green. You can read it here.
