"I have had three children, I have done this three times, and every time is different," she began, before exclaiming: "The one that has not changed for me, is I do not know how people get super skinny while breastfeeding. It's just not in my DNA!"

"I am so hungry, every time I breastfeed I am hungry and I just want food," she continued.

Jennifer confirmed her return to screens earlier in the year

The actress, who stars as emergency dispatcher Maddie Buckley in the Fox drama 9-1-1 about first responders, posted a sweet picture of Aidan cuddled up into his mom's chest, although she keeps her children's faces private. Jennifer and husband Brian - who is also a successful actor - share three young children. Aiden, five months, Atticus, six, and Autumn, eight.

They welcomed their third child last year but the pregnancy wasn't exactly planned.

Jennifer told People magazine: "We had always been open to a third, but definitely didn't think in the crazy year that the entire world was having that it would necessarily be this moment."
