Minnie Driver: Walking With Henry is My Daily Workout

After enduring pregnancy and then delivering a 9 lb, 12 oz. baby boy, Minnie Driver admits that she has "never eaten more food in my life!" Now, two-and-a-half months postpartum, the 38-year-old actress — who says breastfeeding helps "burn [the weight] off" — is taking a slow, gradual approach to shedding the extra pounds and shares that despite her appearance, she "still [has] a marshmallow tummy." While Minnie does "some yoga," her main source of exercise are her long daily walks with son Henry Story. "I live in the hills, so it’s kind of up and down," explains Minnie.

"I’m just walking [with a] very heavy stroller with my baby. My baby weighs 15 pounds so he’s like a weight session. Yeah, he’s going to be tall."

Amidst her relaxed weightloss plan, Minnie finds herself fully enjoying music time with her new baby boy. "When I sing, he smiles and he laughs and he sings alone," gushes the proud mama.

Minnie recently discussed her labor and delivery and shared new photos of Henry. Click here if you missed it!

Way to go Minnie! All mommy’s have a ‘marshmallow’ tummy…you’re only 2 1/2 months post-partum so give yourself some slack…many mum’s don’t get back into working out until at least 3 months. But definitely those stroller workouts on the hills will help a lot. I totally agree with the nursing, for me it just kicked my weight-loss into high gear!

My son was 15 lbs when he was 2 1/2 months too. My Dr. said he needed a diet. We never went back to her.

Way to go Minnie, Alot of celebs go crazy around that time, seems like your doing it the right way 🙂

Walking is the best thing to help shed the weight! Until it got cold and dark early, I walked every day with my baby, even the day we came home from the hospital.

15 lbs. at 2 months is a big baby! My 6 month old is only 15 lbs!

What a lucky woman to be able to go for walks in the hills of CA with her new baby! Minnie sounds like she’s got a good head on her shoulders so I’m sure her (gigantic) son will be a champ as well. And what a great way to keep your baby happy–nothing like fresh air to calm a crying baby.

Wow! She seems like a nice mom! Don’t try to get the weight off too quickly! You’ll miss so many good times with your baby! Enjoy it while it lasts!

What kind of stroller are you using? I like the look of it!
