Jenna Fischer Admits She's Hanging On to Her Baby Weight

The star of The Office says she's struggling with her body: "I am breastfeeding my baby, and I am not getting any skinnier!"

While many celebrity mamas are hailed for returning to their pre-pregnancy size within weeks of their births, actress Jenna Fischer admits she's having trouble losing the baby weight.

Fischer, 37, gave birth to son Weston Lee on Sept. 24, and four months later, The Office star says she still hasn't returned to her pre-baby figure.

"Let me please stand in solidarity with all of the women who are not a size 2 six weeks after leaving the hospital," she told Us Weekly at the SAG Awards. "I thought, you read all of the stuff in magazines like, 'Oh, I breastfed my baby and I am so skinny now.' I am breastfeeding my baby, and I am not getting any skinnier!"

But the comedic actress, who's married to screenwriter Lee Kirk, is not overly concerned with her extra curves.

"I think I'm just going to be a little bit bigger for a little bit longer," Fischer said. "And that's fine with me."

Walking the red carpet in a blue Max Azria Atelier gown that accentuated all the right curves, Fischer had nothing but love for her dress: "It made me look the smallest I could possibly look right now after just having had a baby," she told Us.

Extra pounds aside, Fischer says she loves motherhood.

"I love being a family. I love going from two people to three people, and it has deepened the bond between me and my husband," she said. "We love being together, the three of us. Our little unit."
