Jillian Michaels is a Mom Twice Over!

Posted by Alissa Robson

Leave it to the hardcore former trainer on Biggest Loser to take on an even bigger challenge – becoming a mom not once but twice in the same week!

Michaels had been working through the adoption process for a long time before finally realizing her dream of bringing home daughter Lukensia from Haiti. Coincidentally, the arrival came in the same week as Michaels’ partner Heidi Rhoades gave birth. The couple’s son Phoenix was born in Los Angeles on May 3.

“We’re swimming in babies over here,” Michaels said in an interview with People Magazine, who are doing an in-depth feature on her newfound motherhood. Michaels also talked about motherhood has changes her, but not enough to completely soften her.

“Mommy can still be tough, right?” she asks her daughter in a promo video.

Despite the fact that she and her partner are overwhelmed with their two new bundles, for Michaels, it’s all about the excitement of seeing what each new day holds for their new family, and making sure she doesn’t miss a moment.

“I don’t even answer email,” she explained. “I don’t have time to care about anything else. I want to be really present and enjoy all the nuances of their growth and development. I don’t want to rush any of it.”

Well, she’ll certainly have her hands full, but we’re sure both she and her partner are up to the challenge. Congratulations to the new family!
