Former pop star Jamelia has revealed her newfound confidence in her 40s as she praises her gorgeous feminine shape for growing up with three children.
The British singer and TV personality has revealed she feels sexier than ever and never wants to be a size 6 again.
The Birmingham-born, 41-year-old told Closer magazine: “I feel sexier than ever in my 40s. I feel so much more knowledgeable and confident.
“I’m a size 14 and I’m so proud of all the changes my body has gone through – it gave me three kids and it’s amazing. I don’t want to be a size 6 again.”
Jamelia was first signed to a major record label at the tender age of 15.
At 5ft 6 in the music industry, she was taller and “quite a bit taller” than her peers.
And despite being a tiny size 6, Jamelia revealed she was still pressured by the industry to lose weight.
The former Hollyoaks actress recalled the publication telling her she had to be “sample size.”
This filled her with insecurities and prompted her to focus on shrinking as much as possible.
Going “rehearsal size” was “impossible” for the star, despite her attempt, she said. She was encouraged by those around her to have a coffee or a Diet Coke when she became famous instead of eating.
With age and wisdom on her side, Jamelia is determined not to let her daughters Teja, 21, Tiani, 16, and True, 4, grow up under the same pressures as she did.
The former pop star said she will “never take that message to her girls.”
The trio each have different body types and their loving mother wants to teach them to love themselves and feel confident in their form, she explained.
“You don’t have to look in a certain direction — I was told that growing up.”
