Jenna Jameson’s body has been her business since she was a teenager. Now 43, the woman once dubbed “the Queen of Porn” has a new outlook on her appearance — thanks to her infant daughter.
The former adult-film star snapped a selfie, in which she wore nothing but a bra and Calvin Klein undies, while holding her beautiful 10-month-old baby girl, Batel Lu Bitton, whom she calls “Batelli.” In the caption, she got real about being insecure about her “belly” in this era of new moms’ posting “snap back” photos right after giving birth. But she went on to talk about how she hadn’t exercised — or even wanted to — and is learning to accept every “dimple and roll.”
“OK. … I was reluctant to post this because I’m so super insecure about my belly,” wrote Jameson. “I think MOST new moms are, except the seemingly unattainable insanely perfect Instagram models that literally look like Victoria’s Secret models just days after giving birth. God bless em.”
She continued, “Well, I’m 10 months postpartum and not anywhere near where I’d like to be. Granted I haven’t worked out once, or even WANTED to. But, this is my new norm, my little beautiful baby that loves me, and every dimple and roll.”
Jameson, who also has 8-year-old twin sons, indicated that she probably will return to the gym someday but that her little girl made her realize there’s more to life.
“I know I will get back to my slender self someday, but if I don’t… oh well,” wrote Jameson, who has been called the world’s most famous adult entertainment performer. “I’d like to say that I am seeing things through so many women’s eyes now that I’m more involved in my mommy tribe. So many women are made to feel not good enough if they don’t ‘SnapBack.’ Well I’m here to say to all of you, that you’re beautiful. You’re beautiful because you did something MIRACULOUS… you gave life.”
Batelli, whose dad is Jameson’s Israeli boyfriend, Lior Bitton, an L.A.-based jewelry store owner, was born in April. Since then, the proud mom has been sharing snaps of the mom life on social media — from breastfeeding milestones to simple moments in which she’s rocking a “full mommy look.”
Jameson had difficulties with pregnancies earlier in her life, suffering a miscarriage in 2004 during her first marriage, which ended because of her infertility struggle. She went on to welcome the twins with Tito Ortiz in 2009 but subsequently lost custody of them after a messy court battle.
Sober now for two years, she’s clearly enjoying motherhood — and seems to have a healthy outlook on it.
