Nancy O’Dell introduces her daughter Ashby Grace, 9 weeks, in the latest issue of People. The Access Hollywood host says she’s been so enraptured with Ashby and motherhood that she has no idea who or what’s in the headlines anymore.
The other day someone said to me, ‘So what’s up with Lindsay Lohan?’ I said, ‘I have no idea, but if you want to know how to change a diaper, I’ll be happy to tell you!’
Nancy knows much more in addition to changing diapers. Husband Keith Zubchevich, 38, who has two sons, Tyler, 12, and Carson, 8, from his first marriage, calls his wife a "natural."
She knows by the way Ashby cries if she needs to be fed or have her diaper changed.
Keith chips in with some nice foot massages.
She loves Keith’s foot massages. He now has little feet and big feet to rub.
The 41-year-old, who says her daughter’s wardrobe "already rivals mine" with gifts from the likes of Halle Berry, returns to AH next month. She’s been getting camera-ready by nursing, working out thrice weekly and doing ballet-based exercises, resulting in a 24 lb. weight loss. That leaves six more pounds to go. As for a diet, Nancy says,
Breastfeeding is the best diet [plan]. I want to eat healthy for Ashby, so it’s easy to say no to pizza.
It’ll also most likely be easy to say no to more hours at work too since Nancy cannot stand being away from her daughter, whom she calls a "happy baby," who "loves to laugh at little animal sounds."
I keep flashing a little light on her at night just to look at her. It’s love like I’ve never felt before. My life is finally complete.
