Jennifer Lopez is opening up about the process of giving birth, and how it affected her self-esteem. While attending the Daytime Beauty Awards, Lopez presented an award for her trainer, Tracy Anderson, sharing the impact that she had on her physique and self-esteem in the years they’d worked together.
Lopez presented Anderson with the Outstanding Achievement in Fitness Award and revealed that the two met in 2008, after Lopez had given birth to her twins Max and Emme. “I’ve been doing a lot of reflection lately, revisiting the past versions of myself to fully embrace the me of now,” said Lopez. “And I’m reminded of how much Tracy has inspired and encouraged me to celebrate every version of my body over the years and to continue to elevate as my own life and needs changed.”
“I met Tracy right after I had my twins. I called her at a time when I was feeling insecure and uncertain, wondering if I would ever get back to how I was before - as most new moms do after giving birth.”
“She came into my life,” said Lopez, “and helped me embrace the new me and help me to be and to realise that I could be stronger than I ever had before.”
