Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave Talks Life with Newborn amid Pandemic: 'I'm Trying to Enjoy This Time'

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave Shares Her ‘Postpartum Reality’ 3 Days After Welcoming Daughter

When it comes to her post-baby body, Mellencamp, who gained 45 pounds while pregnant with Dove, is taking her time there, too.

“With Slate and Cruz, I gained over 80 pounds,” says Mellencamp. “I thought I’d never get to where I wanted to be; I thought it was impossible.”

But now, after a “lifestyle shift” following the birth of her son, the All In By Teddi founder and accountability coach has a different mentality.

“Now that I’m committed to my lifestyle, I’ve created a confidence in myself,” says Mellencamp. “I know my body will do what it wants to do when it’s ready. That being said, I also created an All In postpartum program, and I’m going through it myself. It’s all about the support!”

“I feel really grateful that I was active during pregnancy because I’m able to be active [after],” she adds. “Being able to go for a walk has really helped. I listen to my body. And I feel better when I’m moving.”

The busy mom is also bracing herself for the new season of Housewives, premiering April 15 on Bravo.

“My husband and I joke that since we made it through that season while I was pregnant, we can get through anything,” says Mellencamp with a laugh. “We had some high highs and some low lows. And a lot of craziness!”
