Vanderpump Rules star Brittany Cartwright is addressing the challenges of losing weight post-pregnancy. She wants to normalize post-birth bodies.
Former Vanderpump Rules star Brittany Cartwright is having trouble losing baby weight after giving birth to her son Cruz last year. The Kentucky native, who is married to fellow former co-star, Jax Taylor, was part of the Vanderpump Rules pandemic baby boom along with Stassi Schroeder, Lala Kent, and Scheana Shay. The four new moms, who have gotten together with their little ones on occasion, were most recently seen celebrating Stassi’s daughter’s first birthday. Since giving birth, Brittany has been working hard to lose the extra weight.
Brittany and Jax, who celebrated their second-anniversary last year, had a rocky road during their journey to marriage and parenthood. During Jax’s time on the show, he dated several women, including Stassi, and his inability to remain faithful to any of them was known by all. His cheating exploits were often the focus of his storyline and became even juicier when he cheated with fellow cast members. Over the years these included Kristen Doute and Faith Stowers. The latter indiscretion occurred when Brittany and Jax were already deep into their relationship. Ultimately, the couple was able to get past the incident and hosted a lavish wedding in her home state.
When speaking to People, Brittany was very open about the challenges of regaining her pre-pregnancy figure. “Since having Cruz, postpartum weight loss has been a struggle and something I’ve been very vocal about with my community.” She claims that she is “incredibly proud” of her body but wants “to be the best version of myself for my son.” Brittany is working out regularly and plans to lose at least thirty more pounds with the help of Jenny Craig.
Brittany is putting in the hard work to get healthy for her family, but the new mom is also giving herself a break. “It can be so easy to compare ourselves to others. But anytime I find myself getting too in my head about this, I take a step back and remind myself that every person’s body is so different and uniquely beautiful.” After receiving negative comments on social media, Brittany has spoken out about the need to normalize post-pregnancy bodies.
While on the show, Brittany was the only cast member who was universally beloved by every one of her co-stars Always cheerful and optimistic, she’s undoubtedly tackling this latest hurdle with a great attitude. She is in good company with Scheana, who has vented frustrations about her own post-baby weight on the current season of Vanderpump Rules. No doubt, Jax, who has been known to work out several times a day, is supportive of his wife’s goals.
