London: American actress Amy Adams, mother of a seven-month-old girl Aviana Olea, says motherhood has made her understand her body better.

"Being pregnant helped me understand what my true relation with my body was, that it wasn`t put on this earth to look good in a swimsuit," quoted Adams as saying.

"I felt like, `Look, I can carry a baby! I`m gaining weight, everything is going well.` And I`ve had that relationship ever since," she added.
