She’s sick of the double standard!
Christina Aguilera has two adorable children and a booming career, but just because she can juggle it all doesn’t mean she thinks that the expectations on women are fair!
“Mothers are constantly expected to be the nurturers, the givers, the providers of a comfortable home. We’re expected to be pregnant, have the kids, breastfeed once we have the babies. And we’re expected to look amazing after baby, right? Keep our husbands and boyfriends interested – because we’re supposed to get back to sexy and keep things exciting in the bedroom. There’s such a long list,” she lamented to the latest issue of Women’s Health.
The singer went on to explain how a mother should focus on her own health and well-being, not just the health and well-being of her children and family. “Having children is the ultimate joy, and I love my kids, but women have to find time to nurture themselves. If someone has a baby, the first thing I’m like is, ‘OK, are you taking care of you?’,” she proudly declared.
The blonde beauty isn’t going to let anyone pressure her into unrealistic weight loss goals, either!
“I would say to any woman: ‘Don’t be too hard on yourself.’ I’m not into deprivation. I’m not into suffering into getting a great body or the body that you want. I’m into enjoying life, being conscious and aware, but also breathing into yourself and owning what you got,” she admitted.
We just love her!
