If it appears Lady Antebellum singer Hillary Scott has not slimmed down to her normal weight after having a baby in July, it’s because she believes real moms take their time.
Hillary tells People magazine there’s a lot of pressure for new mothers, especially those in the public eye, to get in shape as soon as possible. She says,
“The women who get there the fastest are celebrated like it’s an accomplishment.” She says that’s wrong and it sends a bad message to young women. Scott says she decided to accept herself as a work in progress, but it’s more important because now she has a daughter.
Lady Antebellum is set to start their Take Me Downtown tour in January, and Hillary is looking forward to the new dynamic a baby on the tour bus will bring, particularly among her bandmates Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood and their wives.
“It will be interesting to see how having a baby on board affects their relationships. There is something so beautiful about the innocence of a child and the grace and joy a child brings to everyone,” Scott says. “I’m curious to see who’s next! It’s only a matter of time. Cassie [Kelley] and Kelli [Haywood] just love on Eisele so much.”
