Megan Fox talks motherhood and 10-pound weight gain

Megan Fox is back to work, showing off her post-baby figure while promoting her new film “This is 40” and talking about all things motherhood…

Fox, who gained 10 pounds while pregnant with son Noah Shannon Green with husband Brian Austin, has only been a new mom since September 27. She told UK Daily Mirror recently, “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. I’m too in love with Noah and I don’t want to be away from him. I just want to be home.”

And unlike other mom celebrities who act like everything’s peachy after a baby is born, Megan Fox kept it real, saying “having an infant is difficult” and admitting she hired a nanny after trying out the typical late-night feedings alone. She explained, “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. 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.”

Megan revealed, “I always wanted to mother things and I constantly had a doll I was taking care of. I don’t receive the same satisfaction from my career as I do from being a mother so I’m really happy. But two weeks ago I said to Brian, ‘We have to get a night nurse or we’re going to get a divorce because someone’s got to sleep in this house or we’re going to kill each other.’”
