Megan Fox says she’s not in a hurry to get her pre-pregnancy body back, but the “This Is 40” actress certainly looked svelte at the March of Dimes’ Celebration of Babies on Friday (Dec. 7) in Beverly Hills.
Fox gave birth on Sept. 27 to her first son, Noah, with husband, Brian Austin Green.
“I only gained 23 pounds when I was pregnant and I’m still 10 pounds heavier, but I don’t want to kill myself trying to get back into shape because it’s not a priority right now,” she tells the U.K.’s Daily Mirror. “I’m too in love with Noah and I don’t want to be away from him. I just want to be home.”
But even once she is back to her pre-baby weight, don’t expect to see her in any super-sexy film roles.
“It changes your perspective about being overly sexual in a film when you have a baby,” she says. “I’m going to be more cautious about choosing films because I’m already thinking about when he’s in school, and his friends are going to be showing him my photo shoots with me in a bikini and he’s going to be horrified.”
Fox also explains to the Daily Mirror the couple’s decision to hire a night nanny two evenings a week.
“Having an infant is difficult. It’s a lot of work and I didn’t hire any help because I overestimated my own abilities. I had no idea how difficult babies could be, so Brian and I were exhausted,” she says. “You never sleep and you’re awake all night and your entire life is devoted to this little thing that needs you constantly. And I love it. It’s what I’ve wanted to do since I was a little girl.”
