“I mean, I guess our mothers and grandmothers weren’t under the pressure that women of today are after delivering a baby. My dad says that there’s nothing better than a little meat on the bone! He likes my mom a little chubby. So she was never under the pressure to get back to her old weight, and she never did, actually! But it’s different, I have a career, and that’s the only part that’s been a bit stressful because I knew that I’d have to come back here to do ‘The Voice’ two months after I delivered a baby. I didn’t have my four months maternity like every woman on earth has. So I’m not trying to complain, but it’s been a process full of challenges in my life. I’m still a few pounds over! Zumba has been pretty great for me even during pregnancy. I did it almost until the end.”
… says 36 year-old Shakira, who gave birth 3 months ago.
Holly Madison, who wants to lose 40 pounds in 6 weeks, showed up on the red carpet at Cirque Du Soleil’s World Water Day celebration on Friday, just 3 weeks after giving birth – and she offered a few tips on how to look as slim as possible post-birth:
How do I hide my leftover preggo belly for the red carpet? Combine all my favorite slimming tips: a high waist, a flared skirt and a wide belt. Put those elements in your outfit (Spanx don’t hurt either!) and the pounds disappear for the night!’
Back in December, Hilary got all excited for fitting back into her size 26 skinny jeans – see the story here!
And back in October, Hilary shared:
There are some women who look the same right after — I think they are freaks of nature! I don’t know how that happens,” she told Parents magazine in October. “I’m not one of those people. It takes your body nine months to get there — really 10 months. So I’m trying to be patient but I’m working hard. And I think now more than ever, I appreciate my body and what it’s done for me.
As a former Playboy model, Holly is known for her hot body — and just two weeks after welcoming daughter Rainbow, the health-conscious new mom reveals she plans to drop all of her baby weight in less than two months! Is that too fast?
Holly Madison, 33, has been spending all her free time with her new baby girl Rainbow Aurora, 2 weeks, and her boyfriend Pasquale Rotella, 38. But now that the baby is here, the former Girls Next Door has big plans for her post-pregnancy body!
While pregnant, eating healthy was Holly’s main priority. But after a couple of weeks, the health-conscious mom is eager to get back to working out and into her famous bikini bod!
“We’re putting a gym in our house, so I’ll be doing yoga, Pilates, and cardio,” Holly tells In Touch. She plans to go back to a super-healthy diet, and eat mainly green smoothies, coconut yogurt, teas and vegetable stews. The former Playboy model gained 40 pounds while pregnant, but expects to be back down to 110 pounds in no time!
Why the rush? Holly wants to be fit just in case she has to do another Vegas show! While some Hollywood moms prefer plastic surgery, Holly does not. “I want to have more kids,” she told InTouch magazine. “Maybe when I’m done, that will make sense.”
