Eva Mendes: I’ll Bounce Back from Baby – ‘Eventually’
New mom Eva Mendes is in no rush to get back her killer curves.
“The whole bounce back thing, I’m like, ‘Oh gosh, ease up. It’s okay, we don’t have to,'” Mendes, 40, said. “Eventually, maybe, but certainly not in a couple weeks.”

Although she showed off her figure in a fitted red dress, Mendes says her only secret has been nursing — balanced with her everyday healthy habits.
“[Breastfeeding] really does help to shrink your uterus back to normal size. It does! I know it’s a really weird thing to say, but it does,” she said with a sheepish smile.
Quipped Ellen DeGeneres, “It does. That’s what I’m doing. I’ve lost five lbs.!”
“We’re getting the hang of it, the sleeping thing, but I’m exhausted and it’s the best,” she said.
“Really, I’m so incredibly tired. I thought I was tired before at times, but no, nothing like this. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
