10 Celeb Moms Get Super Real About Sex After Baby

Anne Meadows | Dec 12, 2016 Celebrity Moms


Giving birth is without a doubt a very personal thing, but there are just some aspects of the experience that pretty much all moms share. As our bodies change and grow, our confidence, energy, and yes, libido fluctuates. That's why it's so comforting to hear our favorite celebrity moms honestly express feelings, doubts, strategies, and successes about their evolving sex lives after baby. We can totally relate!

Sometimes pregnancy sex kicks a woman's libido into high gear -- even while it weirds out our partners (right, KCav?). Then, once the kid actually arrives, we try to schedule "sexy times" with the best of intentions and and then struggle to stay awake long enough to engage in this very special appointment. It's nuts! What used to be so simple becomes trickier and different, if not challenging, at times. But not forever, as many celeb moms share, getting back to our old selves has its definite payoffs.

    In her behind-the-scenes documentary short series, Beyonce gave us a glimpse behind the curtain at her life. She dished about the inspiration for the song (and video) "Partition," which came out a year after she gave birth. She said she wanted to show everyone that "You can have your child and you can still have fun and still be sexy and still have dreams and still live for yourself." It has to be a challenge to raise Blue Ivy while tirelessly killing it professionally. But that's just one reason why Bey is Queen.

    "There is no normal," Eva Amurri Martino told People"It’s okay to have mixed feelings about your sensuality and sexuality after welcoming a child, and it’s okay to allow yourself time to process those changes. It’s also okay if you literally can’t wait to have sex as soon as those six weeks are up! Get it, girl!" Yes, preach!

    Christina opened up about her post-baby body on Q100's Bert Show: "I'm more confident and comfortable in my own skin. I think [I'm] even a more sexual Christina … it's just something that's happening inside of me at this point in my life. Seeing your body do these things you never thought possible … When you have a baby, you go through a period where your body just is not your own. It becomes for your child and that's it. It is not for you anymore. Once you bounce back from that and kind of get your body back … it's a great feeling." Getting your groove back is definitely a great feeling!

  • Jada Pinkett Smith


    Jada and Will are no shy couple when it comes to dishing about their sex life. As she told Good Housekeeping, "My husband and I always make time for sex! Always! No matter how busy we are. And if I told you the places! You would not even believe! It's crazy the risks that we take, but that's what keeps it so much fun." Hm, that really gets you thinking, doesn't it?

    It's true that often guys have too small a sense of humor when it comes to bedroom antics. Kristin found it funny, though, when her little bun made its presence in her oven known during *ahem* private times with her hubby. As she told Fit Pregnancy, “Sex is funny when you’re pregnant. Guys get weird about it. I’m like, ‘Oh Jay, the baby’s kicking!’ And he’s like, not wanting to know about it.” But she offers some sage advice for moms in similar positions: "That's important for women to realize -- if your guy is a little weirded out but isn't good at expressing that, it can be isolating. That's why communication's a must. Lingerie always helps, too."

    Coco Austin is definitely not one known for shyness. She gushed to E! News, "It's funny, when you're pregnant, everybody's like, 'You're glowing! You're glowing!'...But now is when I feel like I'm glowing." When it comes to getting busy with hubs Ice T though, some things have changed. "Sex after a baby is definitely different ... Before it was just like whatever goes. But now it's all planned out, like we're gonna go to dinner, and get down at this time. But I have it all coordinated now. I'm very organized." Maintaining intimacy with your partner is so easy to overlook when you've got a newborn gobbling up all your attention. Good on you, Coco, for making your marraige a priority!
