Although Selma Blair’s new baby boy, Arthur Saint Bleick, has yet to celebrate his first birthday, the “Cruel Intentions” actress has already returned to what looks like her pre-baby body.
Blair was spotted Thursday afternoon, taking son Arthur to a playdate in Brentwood, Calif. This is the first child for Blair and her fashion designer boyfriend, Jason Bleick.
But the 39-year-old’s pregnancy wasn’t without its fair share of rough patches. After giving birth, Blair began experiencing pregnancy hair loss.
“This is so not glamorous, but it’s true: I need to take longer showers so that I can collect the hair that falls out and throw it away so I don’t clog the drain,” Blair told People. “Why do actresses never talk about that? It just started falling out at the three-month mark and I’m not a girl who likes extensions, so Selma’s going to be bald!”
Although Blair was more than candid about the reality of the road to motherhood, “The Office” actress Jenna Fischer recently told Celebuzz that Hollywood pressure for celebrity moms to bounce back after their pregnancies is completely unrealistic.
“I think it’s unnatural,” she told Celebuzz. “There’s so much pressure on you as a new mom that the last thing you need to have hanging over your head is some expectation of what your body is supposed to look like. I actually think that the scrutiny of new mothers’ bodies has gotten out of control.”
