London: While most celebrity mothers fret about getting back in shape soon after giving birth, actress Ashley Jensen does is not under pressure to lose her baby weight.

The Ugly Betty star, who has nine month old son Francis with husband Terence Beesley refused to put herself on a strict diet to shed pounds quickly after birth and was happy to give in to her cravings, Contactmusic reported.

"I put no pressure on myself at all and I was breastfeeding so sometimes I would say, 'I need a chocolate eclair - I'm going down the road for a cake'," Ashley said.

"I thought I'd developed a really crazy sweet tooth but I think it was my body saying it needed extra calories. I treated breastfeeding like my job. I watched what I ate - apart from the eclairs and half a Guinness because my doctor said I could," she added.

However the 40-year-old beauty admits that living in figure conscious LA, she needs to get back in shape as soon as possible.
    
"But I know I need to whip myself into shape or everyone will say, 'Look at Ashley's body'. I had people taking photos of me six weeks after I gave birth. I got out for the first time and somebody said I looked like Margaret Thatcher. But that's just part and parcel of the job - I try not to mind," Ashley said.
