After three kids, Camila Alves knows the secret to a healthy lifestyle.

Alves, 34, shares son Levi, 8, daughter Vida, 6, and son Livingston, 3, with her husband, actor Matthew McConaughey. The former model sat down with PEOPLE to talk about her post-baby body and motherhood.

“I never understood when people go, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s so easy being pregnant,’ ” she says. “No, it’s hard. It’s the most beautiful thing, yes, but it’s hard.”

One difficult part of her three pregnancies was losing the weight she gained.

“My first one, lost the weight super easy,” she says of bouncing back after giving birth to Levi in 2008.

“The second one, a little bit harder. The third one, it just wasn’t going anywhere. So actually, [Livingston is] 3 years old and I stopped myself and went, ‘Camila, you’re still holding on to your baby weight and he’s 3 years old. That’s not okay.’ ”

As a former Las Vegas performer and reality show star, Holly Madison certainly has the experience of looking picture perfect. But when it comes to her post-baby body, she’s not under any pressure to bounce back too soon.

“I’m going to get healthy, but I’m not going to focus on how fast I’m losing weight,” Madison, 36, tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s issue. “I don’t have a time limit.”

The former Girls Next Door star and bestselling author, who welcomed her second child, a boy named Forest Leonardo Antonio on Aug. 7, says she gained 60 pounds while pregnant.

“I was eating junk food and ordering a lot of Postmates,” Madison admits. “I spent more on Postmates than I did on groceries!”

Comfort food, indeed. “I was vaguely nauseous and the thought of greens grossed me out,” says Madison. “I was a Shakey’s Pizza regular!”

Holly Madison is opening up about the birth of her son, Forest Leonardo Antonio, and the “stressful” days that ensued after he was admitted into the neonatal intensive care unit.

No one ever said having a newborn was easy. And for Jillian Harris, the first few weeks of her son Leo George Tiziano‘s life were particularly emotional.

“I was crying every day the first week,” Harris, 36, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

The former Bachelorette star gave birth to Leo, her first child with boyfriend Justin Pasutto, on Aug. 5. “I was trying to give everybody all my love and I felt like it wasn’t possible,” she says.

The blogger and host of HGTV’s Love It or List It, Too in Vancouver decided to try placenta pills, a process in which the placenta is encapsulated into pills and believed to potentially impart health benefits.

“I have nothing to compare it to, but I’ve had so much energy,” says Harris of the effects of the pills. “I haven’t had any major breakdowns and I’ve been feeling really good.”
