The 90210 alum recently opened up to PEOPLE about her current pregnancy and learning to appreciate her postpartum body.
Grimes-Beech said her pregnancy has "flown by" as she's been keeping busy with her young daughter.
"Up until this point, I really have just been in such go-go-go mode, running after a toddler and all the rest of it," said Grimes-Beech, adding that in her first pregnancy she was "extra anxious about everything" but doesn't have that feeling this time.
"I feel capable as a mom now, whereas the first time you're like, 'Oh my God, can I do this?!' " she added.

One thing the star feels more confident knowing this time around comes in the postpartum experience, particularly in appreciating her body after baby. Grimes-Beech is eliminating any pressures to "bounce back" to her pre-baby figure by purging her closet of outfits from years past.
"I'm more profoundly grateful for my body than I have ever been in my life. Why am I feeling less-than because the stuff was just hanging there looking at me every day?" she said of her clothes. "It's my second kid, my body's going to change again and it's going to be a whole-new body again."
"And it's not just jeans, shoes too," she added. "I had to get rid of so many shoes that I hung onto for way too long that have never, ever fit me again, just because I was like, 'Sure, eventually my feet will shrink back!' It's like, come on girl, it's been two-and-a-half years, the day's not coming."
In clearing out her closet, Grimes-Beech said she is now ready to "discover my new body postpartum," noting that she feels "empowered and so ready to embrace whatever happens."
