“Trying to get back into #boyband shape with my little buddy for our next #backstreetboys album and tour. Pushing a stroller is crazy cardio lol. #babies #baby #fitness,” the Backstreet Boys star, 36, captioned the image with his son in the stroller.
Mom-of-two Jessica Simpson covers the September issue of Women’s Health and opens up about workouts, media scrutiny, post-baby bodies, and life with husband Eric Johnson and their two kids: daughter Maxwell, 4, and son Ace, 3.
On her workouts: “Before I was a mom, I was dancing on tables at clubs and that was my workout. Now I’m chasing kids. Your bicep curls are picking up your kids…Workouts are an emotional experience. I exercise to clear my head. It makes me stronger on every level.”
On her favorite body parts: “I’m hard on myself — I believe everything’s a work in progress. But that’s okay. I do love my legs, but my favorite physical attribute is my nose, because it’s not perfect. But recently, since I’ve worked out so hard, I’m also loving my stomach — knowing I grew babies in it, and then having to go through a transformation and just owning it. My boobs just have their own life. They have a way of making themself present. I thought I was going to get a breast reduction, but after having kids, I look at myself and I’m like, you know what, my boobs are actually really big, but I like how they are. They’re an asset, and Eric loves them still.”
On her upcoming athlesiure brand called The Warm Up that features more than a dozen plus-size options: “I know what looks good on a variety of body types. Every woman should feel like she can wear what the model is wearing down the runway…I want to be your friend and dress you and say, ‘You look good, girl!’”
On her weight fluctuations: “I have been every size there is…Media scrutiny sucks. I can’t sit here and say I don’t notice it. I will never understand why people take someone down for what you look like. If I had a character flaw, take me down. But a body flaw? That’s not important.”
Supergirl star Jenna Dewan Tatum covers the July/August issue of Women’s Health and opens up about family life with husband, Magic Mike star Channing Tatum, and their 3-year-old daughter Everly.
On rejecting perfectionism: “I realized that if you try to be the perfect mom, perfect wife, perfect actress, you start to feel overwhelmed. You shut down. I got that really fast…I was running back and forth from breastfeeding to filming a scene, overextending myself on every level. I realized I have to make priorities, and my family is number one no matter what.”
On not believing in “having it all”: “You have to be fulfilled in order for everyone else to be fulfilled. I’m a way happier, more pleasant person to be around when I take time for myself.”
On her workouts suiting motherhood: “I love 45-minute power workouts. I get in, do my thing, and then I’m able to go pick up Everly from school. It gives me energy.”
On their “boring” life: “Instagram is just a highlight reel. Ten percent of the time, Chan and I have a lot of fun. Ninety percent, we’re really boring.”
On other women loving her hunky hubby: “I think he’s the sexiest thing in the world, so of course I get why other people think it. It’s always fun and we laugh about it.”
On Channing trying to be vegan like her: “He really did try to be vegan for six months. The guy doesn’t like vegetables, which makes it tough. It was hard in the beginning because you want someone to be on the same page, but you’ve got to let people be themselves.”
