All the changes that come with motherhood is something that the actress embraced with open arms, even her post-baby body. 

In the August 2015 issue of SELF, she stated she had no interest meeting the expectation of returning to the pre-baby body that most new mothers are stressed with. 

"I've been really focused on not being 'back' to anything, but being the best version of myself right now," she said. "My body is the site of a miracle now. I don't want to be pre-miracle."

Here's to another miracle for Kerry and her growing family!
