Audrina Patridge is committed to making her marriage last.
The former Hills star wed BMX pro Corey Bohan in Hawaii last month, and now, she’s revealing to ET how they plan to avoid the pitfalls of a celebrity marriage.
“We've been through all those pitfalls, I feel like, before we got married,” Patridge explains. “We experienced the reality side of it, the made-up stories in the tabloids, other people trying to get in between us and the gossip and the rumors… I feel like we are so grounded now and we have each other's backs no matter what… people can't just try to come in between us and tell us lies. It's like, 'No, that's not true.'”
Not only are Patridge and Bohan newlyweds, they’re also new parents. The couple welcomed their daughter, Kirra, in June. Between their careers and raising their baby girl, Patridge says it’s been challenging to prioritize their marriage, but insists they’re doing the best they can.
“It's been hard… we haven't really been on a date just him and I since we had the baby,” the former reality star says. “We have a calendar now… and it's really nice because I'll give Kirra a bath every night and get her ready for bed and put her to sleep and he'll cook us dinner, so there's a balance.”
These days, Kirra isn’t Patridge's only “baby.” Earlier this year, the brunette beauty launched Prey Swim, a luxury line of bikinis and swimsuits.
The collection is a natural fit for the Southern California native, who spends a lot of time at the beach. After giving birth just six months ago, Patridge is already back to her pre-baby body.
“There is that pressure of getting back in shape and being toned because that's my brand… I want to stay on top of my image and my fitness and health,” the 31-year-old says.
Patridge's secret to staying so fit? Breastfeeding, Pilates classes when she can (she’s only been four times since Kirra’s birth!) and a clean diet.
“I eat pizza, I eat pasta, I eat whatever I want, just in moderation,” she admits, before revealing her steady diet includes lots of greens, vegetables and fish. “I stay away from sweets, no candy, no desserts, no soda, I barely drink.”
