New Mom Robyn Lawley in Who Magazine’s ‘The Body Issue’

October 2, 2015 in Hot Models, Robyn Lawley by Versus


On her body after giving birth to her first child 6 months ago:

The quest to be perfect is always immense and it’s always out there. I tried to distance myself from carrying to much about it because it’s a losing battle. I’ve got a few new marks, which I’m waiting to fade. A lot of models get back into swimwear three months after giving birth. That’s not me!

Robyn Lawley in Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue

February 10, 2015 in Robyn Lawley by Versus


Robyn Lawley, first ‘plus-size’ model that appeared in Sports Illustrated, on accepting her body:

My agent Chelsea Bonner was the only agent to put me on contract upon meeting me 6 years ago. When she met me, the first thing she told me after years of having to diet too extremes, having to go to castings and not fit a thing to being embarrassingly sent home constantly, and hating my naturally sized Aus 14-16 body “You don’t need to lose any weight, you just need to be you, you’re perfect just as you are”
You have no idea how happy and amazing that was to hear as a teenage girl. ACCEPTANCE. She promised me work and travel and for the first time in years I believed it. I know people can get outraged at times that my body constantly gets referred to as plus size but I think you should check out what she’s written @bellamodelmanagement It’s time we started to embrace #sizediversity EVERYWHERE
I will tell you a secret, the first time you give up diets, or terrible fat free, sugar free toxic whatever foods and embrace real food the happier you will ever be. I will NEVER diet again and I made that pact to myself 6years ago #loveyournaturalsize #changeiscoming #realfoodftw #robynlawleyeats

Robyn Lawley Talks Pregnancy Diet and Weight

December 22, 2014 in Robyn Lawley by Versus


On her diet and pregnancy cravings:

If I don’t eat every two or three hours, I feel nauseous, like I’m going to faint or collapse. I have to eat regularly, which I wasn’t used to. I used to skip meals and have a big meal. Now I have to eat and drink a lot of water — I’ve had to really take care of myself. I don’t eat GMO foods, overly processed foods, corn syrup, preservatives, and other harmful products. I still eat my junk and my decadent food, but I make it or buy organic. My baby craves salty, salty food. I’ve tried to eat kale everyday, and a lot of vegetables and fish because omegas are really good for the developing brain. What I eat is directly affecting the baby, so I’m really trying.

On gaining weight while pregnant:

I’ve tried not to weigh myself, because every woman varies so dramatically. Gaining weight now, I am so horrified when I think about people who ostracize celebrities who gain weight while pregnant. What the tabloids did to Jessica Simpson and Kim Kardashian is cruel and damaging. We should talk about what women go through, not how much weight they gain! On the other hand, I’m [over 6 feet] tall with 42-inch hips, so I wasn’t showing for a while and people were telling me I didn’t look pregnant. That worried me so much. I went to the doctor thinking my baby had died because of what everyone was saying.

On how she plans on losing weight after giving birth:

I’ll go back to the workouts I was doing before. Kickboxing, martial arts, yoga, and definitely weight lifting. It’ll make me faster and stronger, and it’s the quickest and easiest way to get there. I’ll eat clean, but I’ll still have my Nutella, mac and cheese, and meat pies [laughs].


… says 25 year-old mom-to-be Robyn.

Robyn Lawley Talks Pregnancy Worries with Cosmopolitan

December 6, 2014 in Pregnant Celebrities, Robyn Lawley by Versus


On her pregnancy, considering an abortion and her worries – from Cosmopolitan:

How did you feel when you first found out you were pregnant?

It was unplanned and came a little earlier than expected, but when I found out I was pregnant, I was so excited. I had been eating super clean for the two months before because I was coming back from working on my cookbook, which is filled with decadent dishes. For a month or two, I decided to eat all organic, local, fresh produce. I cut alcohol and other things that people usually cut when they’re trying to have a baby. Plus, my partner was doing it at the same time, to support me. So it was kind of ironic that it happened! Once I started researching pregnancy, I saw that 25 is an optimal age for women to have a baby. A lot of people said I’d have an easier pregnancy and easier labor, so I was like, “I might as well do it” [laughs].

So, you were considering not having it? Why’s that?

I’ve been modeling for 10 years; [my career] seems like it’s come very sudden to a lot of people, but it hasn’t. I have been working and traveling like crazy for years. That gets exhausting! I wanted to slow down the modeling, and up the designing and the cooking and other things that interest me. I love modeling, but I was already on my way to cutting back on that work to focus on quality over quantity. I was keeping exclusive clients like Chantelle, Ralph Lauren, and Pantene while trying to cut out some catalogue. Still, as soon as I found out I was pregnant, I had to take all options into account, because with a baby, I’ll have to majorly slow down — and I’m very career driven. That scared me.

What factors helped make your decision?

I talked to so many women for advice. I spoke to a lot of career women that I respect who chose their careers over babies and had abortions. Even my mom had an abortion in her early 20s that I didn’t [previously] know about. Women have always been expected to raise the child, but now it’s great because dads are more involved. I know my partner’s going to be a great dad, so that takes some of the pressure off. Another reason I kept the baby was because I was worried about possible fertility problems down the road. What if I aborted the baby now and in five years time, I wouldn’t be able to have one? That was my biggest fear.

How has your body changed since you’ve been pregnant? What’s been surprising about it?

My body has actually changed more than I thought. Obviously, the first to change was my stomach. I’m 30 weeks pregnant now, so it’s time to get big [laughs]! I don’t think my boobs will ever be the same, they’ve changed a lot. At first it was actually quite painful. Everything’s just … tight.

What else do you worry about?

The one thing I’m quite worried about is stretch marks. I don’t have any yet — knock on wood — but if they do happen, I’ll just have to live with it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m covered in stretch marks already, but they’re white now because they happened when I grew as a teenager. Post-baby, I want to be able to get back to work pretty quickly, and my worry is that if I do get them, they’ll take time to fade to white from red. As a lingerie model, that’s not ideal. I don’t think women should feel bad at all about having stretch marks. I want women to know that it’s a normal thing that happens, and the only worry I have about them is that it might keep me from some work.

There are lots of models who have babies and return to work. Take some Victoria’s Secret angels, for example. Doutzen Kroes, Lily Aldridge, Miranda Kerr, Heidi Klum…

I was actually looking at images from the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this morning on Instagram, and I was thinking two things. One is positive: It gives me confidence and inspiration that I can get my body back. Look at Doutzen, she has a six-pack! Had I not seen those models bounce back and return to work so quickly after having babies, I would have been more scared. There’s another side of me that’s like, “Oh god, there’s so much pressure.” I just don’t know if my body’s going to bounce back. All those models had really great core strength before they got pregnant, and I didn’t. I don’t know if my body will return like theirs did.
