After just giving birth in January, Vanessa tells People that she's hasn't been too hard on herself when it comes to dropping the baby weight. "I don't even know my size right now, honestly," she admits. "It's more about the perspective that I have as a woman and a mother and a wife and how I feel it's not about, 'Gosh, I need to get back to a certain size' or 'I need to be a certain way.'"
The former MTV personality adds that her family makes her feel desired. "Ladies, you are a beautiful woman, you are a beautiful being, you just birthed a human being -- let it be," she says, offering advice to other moms. "Don't let that beat you down. Just feel good about what you've done and what you've accomplished and feel beautiful in how you are."
Vanessa has currently partnered with March of Dimes to help the organization fund lifesaving research as well as work to end premature birth, birth defects and infant mortality. This cause hits home for the 34-year-old mother as she raises her two children.
Doting on her kids, Vanessa shares her dreams for baby girl Brooklyn. "I'm so excited [for] the woman that she's going to be and the mother that she's going to be and the person she's going to be," she says.
As for Camden, he's just like dad! "Not only does [Camden] have the singing ability and love the music, but he also has Nick's terrible dancing ability," she quips, calling out the 41-year-old former 98 Degrees singer.
Vanessa wouldn't even be surprised if her son had a boy band of his own some day. "There was actually a moment when Nick was doing some 1996 98 Degrees move in our bedroom and Camden was right next to him mimicking him," she recalls. "I went, 'Oh no, oh no, here it comes, you're the mini version of that.' But that has done well for Nick so maybe that will do well for Camden!"
