Wow, movie stars really are just like the rest of us.

Jennifer Love Hewitt recently lamented the difficulties she faces trying to juggle new husband, new baby, a career and losing that stubborn post-baby weight.

"It's hard, it's really hard," Hewitt admitted. "And I wasn't sure where I was going to fall and what was going to happen and how I was going to feel. It just feels great to sort of be honest about the fact that it is tough and these clothes make it a little easier, make me feel beautiful. I'm still in a lot of my pregnancy clothes and there is just where I feel good right now. Everything hasn't returned back to where I want it to be and put on my other clothes and feel good about that."

"If your priorities are right, the baby's most important," she went on. "You have to eat to feed to your baby. And I have a girl so I want her to see some day why her mom has good self-esteem and good body issues. It gets you down sometimes, I'm not going to lie. I've had days where I'm like, ‘Ugh, I wish this was easier.' But it's not, and that's OK."

Despite the weight-gain issues, the 35-year-old actress claims she would have another baby in a heartbeat.

"I loved the whole experience. I'd do it again tomorrow," said Hewitt.

And just like the rest of us, Hewitt decided to change her looks a bit to make herself feel a little better post-baby — so she debuted a new blond look.

“I love it!” she told PEOPLE. “I was just inside with the baby and I felt like I was ready for a change. As Giuliana Rancic says, I wanted to get my ‘momjo’ back! I got my mojo back, I wanted my ‘momjo.’”
