Ginger Zee: Becoming a Mom Made Me Feel Better About My Body – and My Life!

06/24/2016 at 02:00 PM ET

Motherhood looks good on Ginger Zee.

“I am so healthy and happy right now,” the Good Morning America meteorologist says in the current issue of PEOPLE.

A positive body image is something that once eluded Zee, 35, who battled anorexia as a young teen. But after going through pregnancy and giving birth to her son Aidan Benjamin in December, Zee looks at her body in a completely new light.

“I think having a baby was a huge part of it because your body changes like crazy. You become someone else,” she says. “Yes, you gain weight, but it’s for such a beautiful reason. You realize life is a lot more than what you look like.”

06/24/2016 at 12:00 PM ET

Blake Lively obviously isn’t letting pregnancy affect her style sense in a negative way — in fact, she’s completely embracing it, as evidenced by her head-turning recent ensembles at Cannes.

“It’s fun to dress up in a big sparkly number and a Cinderella-looking dress,” the 28-year-old expectant star of the thriller The Shallows told PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle exclusively for The Jess Cagle Interview video series.

“I came home to my baby [18-month-old daughter James] and she was like, ‘Wow.’ You know, because you just look like a Disney movie,” Lively says. “It’s fun to get to do that. Because when you’re a little girl you play dress-up, and now I get to do it in big-girl life too.

“There are lots of variables these days, but [it’s] fun to dress [under] the circumstances,” she adds with a laugh.

Ginger Zee is not one to back down from a challenge. When she joined the team at Good Morning America, she says she instantly became their go-to adventurist.

“I started storm-chasing at a young age,” says the GMA meteorologist, 35, who is featured in the current issue of PEOPLE.

“They’d have meetings where they’d go, ‘Would anyone ever do this?’ And I was that girl,” Zee adds. ” ‘Sure, I’ll jump out of a plane.’ ‘Sure, I’ll go to Vietnam and spelunk in the biggest cave in the world.’ ”
