Fergie is Changing What it Means to Be a 'MILF'

Fergie's latest hit, M.I.L.F. $ has been a hot topic of discussion ever since it made its debut a few months ago. Co-starring Kim Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen, Ciara, and several other moms who seem to do it all, the video has already garnered 136 million views and counting.

In a recent interview with PEOPLE, the 41-year-old Grammy winner revealed how the song and her new album were inspired by her husband Josh Duhamel and son Axl. Not only that, but she had been working on the concept for the past few years.

"It was a sentiment that I'd had for a long time," she said. "I'd been working on it before I was pregnant, then when I got pregnant and was actually breastfeeding, all these puns started coming into my head: That's why you see all the signs and all the details in it."

"It was marinating for a long time, so it was a really special moment — and it was a kind of nice thing for all of these women to come together: It was kind of freeing."

The start says that owning your sexuality as a mom is so much more than being called a "MILF." In fact, she doesn't view the acronym as a demeaning term and has redefined it as a "Mom I'd Like to Follow."

"It feels good to feel sexy and have a good time but also be a good example, be a "mom I'd like to follow" in different ways, like growing an organic garden or doing yoga or having a yoga retreat; there are different ways."

It's nice to have the Dutchess make a comeback with such a healthy dose of mom empowerment. So often women lose their sense of sexuality after becoming mothers, especially in those tough few months right after giving birth. And we don't blame you!

Each woman is different and it takes time to feel comfortable in your own skin. That said, making time for yourself to feel better physically and emotionally can and should be an important priority. The first step begins with yourself.
