It’s been almost a month since Andi Eigenmann gave birth to her third baby last January 17. She has been open about her pregnancy and motherhood journey, including her postpartum that she posted how her body looks like two weeks postpartum.

“Still looked exactly like I did one day postpartum, and still do up until today at one month postpartum,” she posted on her Instagram account with photos of her in a two-piece black bikini.

Her reason for not prioritizing how she looks like? “I’ve been enjoying every moment of my time with them, because it recently sunk in to me how fast our children grow,” she says. But she was also quick to point out that there might be a second reason behind this. “I haven’t been feeling like myself lately. I’ve been too unmotivated to keep up with my old (good) habits. And mind you, albeit having three kids, I know I do have the time. Because we’re allowed to take some time to focus on ourselves, too. Now as a result, in some way, I also know how it could (or does) affect my kids.”

She continues to expound that there’s nothing wrong with wanting to look the way she did—pre-pregnancy, but she’s more focused on finding that “feeling the way I used to.” She believes that the “a great way to parent (IMO) is to strive to become a version of yourself that you love and makes you happy so that you can be a great example to your children, too.”
