“It just suddenly came up in a way that hadn’t been present in a long time,” she said in the interview that aired on Monday, March 1. “Feeling like there was a relapse after getting pregnant was shocking and upsetting and concerning for me because I was suddenly so obsessed with food, starting from this first trimester, and I had such a distortion of the way that I looked.”

McPhee, who gained about 40 pounds during her pregnancy, reached out to a psychiatrist for help and said that she is now “OK” with her body being “a little thicker.”
