Cheryl Cole has revealed that she is much happier being out of the limelight for four months.
The former X Factor judge said she has managed to put on seven pounds and has gone up a dress size.
She told Grazia magazine: "This is a happy time - onwards and upwards."
Cheryl added: "When I'm really thin is normally when I am working nonstop. I don't put any emphasis on thinking, `Oh, I'm thin at the moment'.
"Right now I've got my curves back because I've had time off, I'm at home cooking, I'm more relaxed.
"I'm not defined by being seven pounds heavier than I was two months ago - I think it is really unhealthy to go there.
"I've got my boobs and bum back and, yeah, I like it. I think it's sexy."
Cheryl continued: "Women look best when they're happy.
"All of us girls can get so confused. I think women look best when they are happy.
"The greatest, sexiest thing is just being comfortable with you."
