JIllian Michaels is back! The newly minted mother of two will rejoin NBC's The Biggest Loser, a press release announced today. On Season 14 of the weight-loss reality program, Michaels will tackle childhood obesity, with the show's first-ever teenage contestants.

"As a former overweight teen, I know firsthand how dramatically weight issues can affect every aspect of a child's life," Michaels said in the release. "Having recently become a mother of two, I am more passionate than ever about helping empower children and families with the information and resources they need to live a healthier life."

Michaels has been getting a crash-course in parenthood since May, when she and her partner, Heidi Rhodes, welcomed two new additions to their family. Michaels adopted a two-year-old Haitian girl named Lukensia the same week that Rhodes gave birth to the couple's first son, Phoenix.

The Biggest Loser returns in January 2013. Michaels left the show in 2011 to focus on adopting her daughter and participating in charity work.
