Alyssa has been open about her own struggles with body image issues. Growing up in the limelight, she had a lot of people commenting on what she looked like and on things like her weight and more. Now she says, she is in a place where she is happy with how she looks.

As a parent, she is trying to instill in her kids the idea that they are already perfect. She said, “It took me almost half my life to feel comfortable with my body.
