This Morning favourite Holly Willoughby, 40, has revealed she is trying to see the process of getting older as a “privilege”, despite noticing “changes” in her body. The star, who is married to husband Dan Baldwin, candidly shared how she has opted to appreciate her body and ageing after carrying three children.

Holly, who celebrated her milestone birthday in February, opened up to her friend Fearne Cotton on her Happy Place podcast, while discussing her debut book Reflections.

The blonde beauty shared: “I’ve done this [self-criticism], a lot of this, and particularly as you’re getting older when you hit your 40s, things change quite rapidly actually.

“We are heading towards that kind of menopausal time, skin is changing, hair is changing, body’s changing – even having had a baby the shape of your body completely changes.

“I think that it’s really important in those moment rather than look down and go, ‘Oh my god, look at everything changing, I’m getting old, I’m getting more wrinkled. Oh my God, my t**s are around my knees.’

“Instead of looking down, you’ve sort of got to look up with it and go, ‘God, my body was able to carry a baby and my boobs breastfed three children and they were fine’.

“…You’ve got to go, ‘Yes my face is starting to sag and my eyes are blood shot and the rest of it’, but ‘I’m healthy and I’m ok and getting older is a privilege because not everyone else gets to be here’.”

Holly, who recently embarked on launching her new lifestyle brand Wylde Moon, also detailed the “responsibility” she feels she has to her daughter Belle to “set an example”.

The mum-of-three said: “Having a daughter I’m very aware of the example I set now in this stage because Belle’s 10 so she’s old enough now to be watching me and I want to conduct myself in a way that when she gets to this stage, it’s like I’m clearing the pathway for her.

 

“That’s how I feel about many things and not just about outwards image but this is what we’re talking about now. 

“I feel I have a responsibility there to do this in a way that is a positive experience for all of us.”

Holly shares Harry, 12, Belle, 10, and seven-year-old ­Chester with husband Dan, 46.

The star’s book focuses on what it means to live a beautiful life, both inside and out, in the modern world.

Alongside the book and her work on This Morning, Holly has released a Wylde Moon fragrance that comes in a £65 three-wick candle and a £40 single wick.  

The television personality revealed how she lights candles around the full moon and allows “new feelings and energies” into her life for the next moon cycle. 

She said in a recent Instagram post: “It was a big day at Wylde Moon today. 

“The full moon behind me, a really powerful one tonight. I don’t know about you, I didn’t sleep very well last night, I had all sorts of weird dreams about being in a cave.

“The candle launched today and I thought this was a lovely time to share with you what I do on a full moon. 

“I get my candle, I light it and I think about all those things that have happened in the last month that I’ve been working towards that today I feel grateful for. 

“We’re all going through a strange time so it’s nice to think about the positives.  

“When the time feels right, I blow the candle out and let all those thoughts and feelings go and I know with the next cycle of the moon, I can let new feelings and energies into her life.”

Holly previously explained that she hopes Wylde Moon will help other women discover their “true sense” of self.
