Teddi Mellencamp isn’t losing sleep over her baby weight.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is opening up about gaining weight during her pregnancy and why she’s not nervous about getting her pre-baby body back.
“I’m actually not nervous,” Teddi told HollywoodLife.
She clarified, “I mean for the other kiddos, I was a nervous wreck.”
Teddi and her husband Edwin Arroyave are already parents to son Cruz, 5, and daughter Slate, 7 as well as Isabella, who is Edwin’s daughter from a previous relationship.
The Bravoleb admitted that back then she “wasn’t eating healthy” and quickly noticed “just how much weight [she] was gaining.”
Adding, “And the doctors are like, ‘All right, you’ve gained over the healthy amount of weight for the pregnancies.’ And blah, blah, blah. And I just [was] like, “Oh, no, what am I going to do?’”
“Really, I’ve been active this entire pregnancy. I’ve been eating well…And I know that my program works,” Teddi said of her ALL-IN program.
She continued, “And I know that it’s a lifestyle change. It’s not a diet. If you look at it like, ‘I have to diet after the baby comes.’ Yeah. That’s where a problem is going to happen. You’re going to start psyching yourself out and making a big deal of it. I know I’m like, ‘We’ll be good.’”
In September 2019, Teddi announced that she was 14 weeks pregnant with her third child.
“I’m in my second trimester, 14 weeks,” Teddi revealed to Us Weekly. “Everything’s good and I’m in the clear, so I’m just starting to get to that point where I’m sharing with everybody. Plus now I have a bump, so there’s not much more hiding I’ll be able to do!”
In the same interview, Teddi admitted that her kids were “so excited” about her pregnancy.
“They’ve been talking about it for a long time and actually it’s been my son who’s been like, ‘Mom, we need to have another baby,’ and I never wanted to get his hopes up. So when we told him, he was through the roof. So excited,” Teddi confessed.
She added, “They’re already calling it ‘their baby,’ and they have names picked for if it’s a boy or a girl — they’re ready!”
Then in October, Teddi revealed that she was having a baby girl.

It’s a girl! Of course, we would have been equally excited either way, as @tedwinator, the kids and I are just blessed to have a healthy baby no matter the gender. Although I did promise Cruz he could help name her so not sure she’ll be too thrilled being called ”Catboy” Arroyave. ? Thank you to @ocballoonbar for the pop we needed, @204events for the rad background and @jorgebphoto for capturing this moment so perfectly. ?
