Hough, who has been dating Ryan Seacrest for a year, said she wants to be ready physically when she gets pregnant. “I don’t want to have kids anytime soon, but when I do, I want my body to be healthy.”  The blonde bombshell said she keeps fit by avoiding processed foods and going to high-intensity cardio dance classes.

What are some changes you need to make to be healthy for pregnancy?

Cupid’s Advice:

When you have a baby, you want to make sure he or she is healthy by being healthy yourself.  Cupid has some tips on how to make sure your body’s ready for a baby:

1. Exercise: Even when you’re pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant, you should still try to do some sort of physical activity every day.   While you don’t have to do cardio dance like Julianne Hough, yoga or walking are other less strenuous options.

2. Eat right: Make sure you are getting all the vitamins and minerals you need by eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean protein.  Once you’re pregnant, be sure to keep up with the prenatal vitamins.

3. Stop smoking and drinking: If you’re planning on having a baby soon, stop smoking and drinking heavily.  It’s important to make these changes as early as three months before you get pregnant.
