Shanna Moakler: Kids are worth it

Filed under: Your Pregnancy, Celeb Parents

Former Playboy playmate and actress Shanna Moakler says that having kids is worth the post-baby body. In fact, she loves how her body has changed since giving birth to eight-year-old Atiana (whose father is boxer Oscar De La Hoya), three-year-old Landon, and nineteen-month-old Alabama. Her younger two kids' father is Travis Barker, the drummer for the band Blink 182.

At only 32 years old, Moakler has a pretty good attitude. "I look at my children and I am thrilled that my body will never be the same after having them," she says. "They were worth it!" She also criticized the trend of Hollywood types to focus on getting skinny as fast as possible. On her MySpace page, she wrote that she would "rather be called Shanna porker and be a healthy average WOMAN, th[a]n do what most do, to get that thin."

"Most 'starlets' have plastic surgery, they use pills, drugs, or they live in the gym for 4 to 6 hours a day," she continued. "It took 9 months[;] it might take a year getting back!" If you ask me, this is a pretty darn healthy attitude, especially for someone whose claim to fame centers heavily around her appearance. I say good on ya, Ms. Moakler!
