Evangeline Lilly was in no hurry to lose post-baby weight

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Lilly took two years to lose the weight she put on during her and the says she has no qualms about it.

The 38-year-old said she was "patient" with her post-baby body and wanted to be healthy to her children.

"You see those headlines that say, 'I lost my baby weight in three months!' And I used to read that and I would think, why would you want to lose your baby weight in three months? Don't you need that? I was a nursing mom, so I needed that fat... I was just very patient and gentle with myself after I had my children," Lilly told

The actor, who plays Hope van Dyne/Wasp in the upcoming film "Antman and The Wasp", said she did not feel the need to "attack" her body into getting back into shape.

"I realised my body was exactly the way my body was supposed to be during that period of my life. And I nursed my children, both of them, for nearly a year.

"So, after that I didn't attack my body, like, 'Now you're going to go back to where you were!' And I felt really good about two years! I felt like two years made sense to me," she said.
