Just months after giving birth to her son Samuel, Jennifer Garner hit the red carpet and looked as stunning as ever. At the recent premiere of The Odd Life of Timothy Green, the mother-of-three wowed the crowd in a show-stopping red Lanvin dress. “She’s looking so amazing right now,” her trainer of over 10-years, Valerie Waters, told People magazine. “She looks strong and sexy, and I like that she’s rocking her Lycra again!”
Amazing still, model Alessandra Ambrósio, who welcomed her second child in May, was back to work flaunting her figure, just four weeks after having her son. Alessandra, follows a long line of Victoria’s Secret moms like Gisele Bundchen, Adriana Lima and Heidi Klum, who like magic, morph back into their pre-pregnancy form within a blink of the eye.
We set-out to learn some of their tricks by talking to Rosey Edeh who knows all about getting back into shape – after all she competed in theOlympics just a year after her daughter was born! “If I were to say there’s a secret, it’s this, if you have that luxury, get up and get moving,” says Rosey. “I love post-partum yoga, it builds strength and flexibility and helps with that transition your body is going through.” Not just to lose weight, but to relax and rejuvenate the body and mind.
And Rosey says one of the best things you can do for your body is to get fit, before baby. “I got back into shape pretty quickly,” because, “my body remembered me as an athlete,” which helps.
Healthy habits during pregnancy are also just as important, but that doesn’t mean you can’t indulge! “I ate well,” she admits. “I wanted to eat broccoli and I wanted to eat fruits, but I also wanted a bit of the junk food and I had that. So don’t deprive yourself.”
Hilary Duff knows all about the challenges new moms face, because baby takes priority. She says it’s all about fitting her new pilates and spinning routine around her son’s. But adds, “taking that hour a day, to leave my house, makes me have a little more clarity.” The actress also knows the process takes time and she’s embracing her new curves. Like Hilary, P!nk and Penelope Cruz are proud to flaunt their healthy new post pregnancy figures!
