Rock divorcee Patsy Kensit is embracing her new found curves - and believes mothers the world over should resist pressure to lose excess weight.

Rocker Liam Gallagher's ex-wife is currently preparing to star in SEE YOU NEXT TUESDAY on London's West End in September (03), and has been criticised in the press for failing to shed the weight she gained after giving birth to second son LENNON in 1999.

But, Patsy - who is also divorced from Simple Minds frontman Jim Kerr and BIG AUDIO DYNAMITE singer DAN DONOVAN - argues, "After having my two sons, my body changed beyond recognition. I just wanted to get back into my jeans but I couldn't.

"Some people are genetically blessed and lose weight quickly, but it's harder for others. I think it's so bad that people obsess over being a size 8, when it's far more important just to be healthy."
