Nick Lachey’s wife, Vanessa Lachey, gave birth to son Camden nine months ago, but looking at her now, there’s no way you would’ve guessed it.

That’s what makes her confession all the more shocking: "I gained, I think, 65 pounds when I was pregnant," Lachey revealed in an interview with HuffPost Live.

Hold the Spanx, are you serious? She bounced back so quickly, we barely noticed. (Coincidentally 65 pounds rivals that of 70-pound weight gain her husband’s ex-wife Jessica Simpson supposedly gained while pregnant.)

However, the actress doesn’t think expecting moms should be so fixated on that.

"And I will say to moms out there, 'Don't stress about losing it. It will happen when it happens,’” she said. “Cam's nine months, so it's been a minute, and we're working, and we're traveling, and it's just about maintaining a happy, healthy lifestyle, not obsessing about it."

"I think that's one thing I would like to convey to moms everywhere," she added. "It's not about this 'get skinny quick' diet or these fads. Just enjoy time being a mom. You've just had this wonderful, magical moment, and you shouldn't be stressing about that kind of stuff."
