Although the prospect of birthing a 10 lb baby seems daunting to most — it does come with it’s own set of unique perks, Jacinda Barrett recently noted. The Australian-born actress gives credit for her speedy weight loss to her 9-week-old daughter Satine Geraldine, for more reasons than one.
I had a big girl, she was 10 pounds, so that must have something to do with it. Most of [the weight] went out with her, but I am exercising – and I exercised the whole way through. I’ve just been really looking after [the baby] and it sort of comes off the way that it comes off, because it’s all related to her, to my child.
Motherhood, said Jacinda, is "amazing." And the best part?
Just seeing her everyday, you know. … She’s just started smiling, and it’s just the simplest thing, a smile.
Satine is the first child for Jacinda and her husband, actor Gabriel Macht.
