ACTRESS and comedian Maya Rudolph has admitted that her weight has fluctuated over the years after having a few children.
Rudolph will be hosting Saturday Night Live on March 27 alongside musical guest Jack Harlow.
How did Maya Rudolph lose weight?
Maya Rudolph has opened up about her fluctuating weight since having her kids.
“I’ve been, like, 30 sizes in the last 10 years,” Rudolph, 43, joked to Yahoo! Style about how her figure has changed after giving birth to her children.
In 2009, she admitted that during her first pregnancy with daughter Pearl Bailey she gained a whopping 70 pounds. “I don’t think that was smart,” she joked to People.
“I think just about everywhere I went, about three times a day, I got the whole ‘Whoa, you’re huge!’ Like everywhere. And then the old standby: ‘How many months are you…What are you having, twins?’”
She said that she was “eating pancakes and ice cream every day” at the time, but with her future pregnancies, she tried to be more aware of what she ate.
These days, it appears she has kept stricter with her calorie intake as she faults a svelte figure on Saturday Night Live.
How many children does Maya Rudolph have?
Rudolph has four children, of which three are girls. Her children include Pearl Minnie, 13, Lucille, 9, Jack, 7, and Minnie Ida, 5.
Speaking at The Cut’s How I Get It Done conference, Rudolph opened up about balancing work and motherhood, and how she felt she never had to make compromises to have both.
“There is no such thing,” Rudolph said, per People.
“When I started having kids, I never stopped working. I would take breaks, of course, but I didn’t change my creative life.”
Ruldoph’s mother, iconic singer Minnie Riperton, died in 1979 at the young age of 31.
Despite not having her mother around, Rudolph has said she has surrounded herself with help.
“Humans were meant to live in villages, and as women, we need help and we need each other,” Rudolph said.
“I don’t have my mom. I have amazing women in my life who help me raise my kids and that’s a choice I made … I created my own family, basically.”
Who is Maya Rudolph’s partner Paul Thomas Anderson?
Film director Paul Thomas Anderson has been with Maya Rudolph for two decades, but they rarely speak publicly about their relationship.
The California-born Anderson has directed such films as Boogie Nights, Magnolia, There Will Be Blood, The Master, and Phantom Thread.
Anderson, who is now 50, has eight Oscar nominations on his resume, including Best Director nods for There Will Be Blood in 2008 and Phantom Thread a decade later.
He was one of the first of the “video store” generation of filmmakers, according to his IMDb page.

“His father was the first man on his block to own a VCR, and from a very early age Anderson had an infinite number of titles available to him,” his IMDb bio reads.
“While filmmakers like Spielberg cut their teeth making 8 mm films, Anderson cut his teeth shooting films on video and editing them from VCR to VCR.”
His bio adds: “Part of Anderson’s artistic DNA comes from his father, who hosted a late night horror show in Cleveland.”
