Angelina Jolie Talks About Brad Pitt's View of Her Postpartum Body

A Quote That Would Make Any Mother Melt

Sometimes the power of words make us weak in the knees. For every mom who has looked in the mirror dumbfounded by her postpartum body, there's the father of her children who is equally awed.

In a W interview that accompanied, Angelina Jolie's breastfeeding cover shot, the stunning mother of six talked about her relationship with partner and photographer, Brad Pitt. She said:

"I'm with a man who's evolved enough to look at my body and see it as more beautiful, because of the journey it has taken and what it has created," she says. "He genuinely sees it that way. So I genuinely feel even sexier."

Does your partner make you feel more amazing since you bore his children?

no...my husband doesn't get it...he sees women in Hollywood who have lost their weight within 2 months and says, "SEE"... it is something I've struggled with each pregnancy... I don't feel attractive or enjoy being pregnant partly because I feel like I am not desirable or beautiful to him... oh well, win some, lose some.

i feel sexier also... and my husband lets me know he's on the same page... it's AMAZING what our bodies can do... i felt sooo "lush" and fertile when i was pregnant... still do sometimes (altho i just sucked in my gut when i typed that) hahahah....

"evolved enough" I think that's a great way to put it!!! The men who feel that women's body "should" look a certain way and have all these bizarre "requirements" for women they are worth are neanderthals. I think that's pretty much a good way to think about it :) I'm lucky too. I'm almost 7 months pregnant with my first so while we haven't been through the REALLY crazy stuff, my body is definitely changed/changing. And my husband? He just tells me all time how beautiful I am and how beautiful the changes are. Then he rubs the belly and talks to the baby. I need to keep THAT in mind when he makes me crazy with other stuff--LOL
