Liv Tyler is another new Hollywood mom who's in no hurry to lose weight. The "Leftovers" actress, who welcomed daughter Lula Rose last month with her sports agent fiancé David Gardner,joins celebrity moms Anne Hathaway and Blake Lively in saying no to post-baby body pressure.

Tyler told People she'd rather spend time with her "beautiful baby girl" than worry about her physique, and she advises other new moms to do the same.

“Just be kind to yourself,” the 39-year-old actress said. “Everyone is different. Everyone’s body is different, everyone’s birth experience is different.”

“Some people’s body type is that they totally look normal right after [birth], and [for] others, it takes many months,” she continued.“But I think it's best to focus on your health and the health of your baby and bonding.”

The busy mom of three — she and Gardner also have a son, Sailor Gene, 18 months, and Tyler has son Milo, 11, with Spacehog frontman Royston Langdon — said right now she opts for comfy silk pajamas and lots of pampering — for Lula and herself.

But, the actress, who recently began designing clothes for British fashion brand Belstaff, admits finding "balance" in the early days with a newborn can be "tricky."

"It’s the basic things like being able to go take a long bath and do a face mask or brush your teeth," said Tyler.

Tyler is also a big advocate of new moms extending kindness to one another and lending a helping hand when the days get hectic.

"I think it’s important for women to be supportive of each other,” said the actress.
