Teresa Palmer: I ‘Wasted’ Years Worrying About My Body

Teresa Palmer certainly has it – that pregnancy glow!

The Australian actress, 27, recently showed off her expectant belly in photos for Who magazine. And her fiancé, American actor Mark Webber, posted a similar photo to Instagram (he later deleted it), along with an adorable note to the bride- and mom-to-be.

“The love of my life @tez_palmer, with the other love of my life growing in her beautiful belly,” wrote Webber, 33. “What an incredible feeling to look at a picture of your love and get washed over with feelings of pure joy, hope, excitement, inspiration and unconditional love.”

Webber went on to thank Palmer, star of the recent Warm Bodies, for “showing me that true love exists and that I’m worthy of that love … Sharing and living life with you by my side = blissed out peace.”

In the interview for the Australian magazine’s Body Issue, Palmer talks about the “wasted” years she spent obsessed with her weight and diet.

“I was exercising so much, and I just wasn’t nourishing my body in the right way,” she says. “I used to be incredibly militant about the food that I ate. I looked great on the outside, but I wasn’t healthy on the inside. To think that three years ago I was in this place where I was so skinny that I couldn’t have gotten pregnant if I tried.”

She looks very pretty! I remember being about this far along, and feeling beautiful and like I was doing the most amazing thing ever by being pregnant. I had battled infertility for years, and it was wondrous when I got pregnant out of nowhere! Every day felt like a miracle……

I think she looks so beautiful. Happy for her to be a mommy. Not an easy job lol. But congrats to her all the same.

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
