Holly Willoughby has been opening up about motherhood in support of the release of her brand new book, ‘Truly Happy Baby: It Worked For Me.’
The mum-of-three is famed not only for her award-winning TV presenting skills, but also for looking incredible and being a major style icon for many women – but her body image is not something she feels comfortable talking about.
In a new interview with Mail Online, the 35-year-old said that she hates the idea of women comparing themselves to each other, which is why she refuses to discuss her post-birth fitness regime.
When asked how she manages to look so svelte after having had three children, Holly replied sternly: ‘A lot of women, and particularly celebrities, talk about this, and I think it is very unhelpful.’
The This Morning presenter continued: ‘Everyone’s journey is individual. I don’t want to go on the record saying I did this or that, and then have other women read it and think they have to go and do the same.’
Holly went on to say that she doesn’t go to the gym, but refused to add any further details of her workout routine.
‘I’m sorry, I just don’t want to be a part of this conspiracy to make women feel pressured about their bodies’, she explained. ‘Every woman needs to look in the mirror and instinctively decide what will make her feel happy and good about herself and her body; that’s all I did.’
We don’t think there’s anything wrong with celebrities sharing their fitness tips and healthy eating regimes to help inspire others to get strong, fit and healthy.
But we also applaud Holly for standing her ground and respect her for not wanting to get involved in the conversation, for fear of making women feel bad about themselves.
