Last month, mother of three Kate Hudson, 39, vowed to drop 25 pounds after gaining a small amount of weight from her recent pregnancy.

The actress welcomed her first baby girl, Rani Rose, on October 3 alongside boyfriend Danny Fujikawa, Dearly reported.

Hudson, who owns her own line of fitness gear, said that she wanted to lose the weight in order to be “around a long time” for her three children.

But some fans were left scratching their heads this week when the mom was revealed to be the newest ambassador of WW, formerly known as Weight Watchers.

So…here we go! The routine with our baby is getting more familiar and I’m ready to start taking a little time in the day focusing on myself. For me that means my health. Why? Because I wanna be around a long time for these three kiddos of mine. I know that some are curious about what that means and for all you moms (wether working or not working moms) it is the most challenging thing in the world to balance kids and personal time. Let’s be honest, kids take the number one position and it’s haaaaard to make the time for yourself. I’ve been doing a lot of research and I’ve spent my life time trying all kinds of new things that are focused on health and wellness. Because I am on a mission right now to get back to my fighting weight 😉 and my strong body/mind back I want to bring you in on some of this journey. If you want to follow a more in-depth of my to-dos, @prettyhappy will be posting all kinds of fun tidbits from exercises we are loving to foods/recipes we ❤️ and meditation practices I just can’t live without ?‍♀️ MY GOAL: I will be shooting a film in the spring and I’m looking to shed 25lbs. I’d like to try new workouts and eat as healthy as I can. I wanna do all this and keep up milk production, raise my kids, work everyday, make time for my man, have girlfriend time and stay sane! ? I know that this sounds more like a new year resolution but after Thanksgiving and everyone thanking their health, I feel motivated to keep that up. Much love and hope everyone’s Having an amazing start to the holidays! ?

According to “Today,” Hudson confirmed she was working with WW on Saturday, during a Facetime call with the company’s figurehead, Oprah Winfrey.

In a video of the chat, Hudson explained that weight loss was not her only goal. But rather, she wants to live a healthy lifestyle. Hudson told Winfrey:

“This is not a community for people who just want to lose weight, although leading a healthy lifestyle lends itself to such, this is a community about supporting each other through a lifelong journey of wellness.”

But on Sunday, she shared a photo of her slim, post-baby body — and it left fans questioning if she’s right for representing the program.

Many Instagram commenters pointed out that the mother already looks like she’d shed a chunk of her baby weight. One user said:

No offense, but why do you need weight watchers? You look amazing for just having a baby!

Another wrote:

…and why do you need WW?

Regardless of public opinion, it seems Hudson is content with her reasoning behind joining the weight loss program. She told People:

“It’s hard when you have babies. Everyone comes before you, and you have to find that time to just focus in on yourself.”

What do you think of the decision to make Hudson a WW ambassador? Let us know in the comments.
