Ali Landry showed off her svelte figure at the NYC premiere of Bella at the Tribeca Cinema series screening, but the mother of 3-month-old Estela believes “I still have a way to go,” she tells OK! “I just decided I was going to be patient and to enjoy the process and not worry about hurrying up to get back into shape.”

Instead she is enjoying this precious time watching her daughter grow with her husband of over a year, Alejandro Monteverde. “She is laughing and interacting,” Ali gushes about her bundle of joy. “It melts my heart.”

Before the former Doritos girl became pregnant, she and her husband — who directed Bella — had their meals delivered, a practice she continues as she works to shed the baby weight. “My husband and I fight over the meals — they are so good,” the former Miss Louisiana Teen USA explains. As for the name of their daughter, there was no arguing there. Estela Inez was named after both Alejandro’s grandmother and Ali’s.


Bella is in theaters nationwide on October 26.
