For women, having a baby isn’t easy. There’s the whole pregnancy thing, then the whole labor thing, then there’s the whole being a parent thing. It seems that after the sex, the whole baby thing just gets harder and harder. While female celebrities have the luxury of being able to afford help when it comes to raising the baby, they have to deal with the fact that the world is watching their every move as a mother. The world watches as them as their tiny bumps blossom into full on pregnant bellies. The world waits to hear about the birth, the sex and the name of this tiny bundle of joy.
After all of these pleasantries, it is time to get that pre-baby body back and if you’re a celebrity, there is a lot of pressure. Not being famous means you can go a whole year in sweatpants before losing the last 10 pounds, but celebrities are expected to bounce back in record time to either walk in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, show up at their movie premiere or shoot a steamy music video. It’s true that they can also afford help to get their bodies back. They are lucky to be able to afford a dietitian, a trainer, a chef, an in-home gym, and anything else that may help with weight loss. Even with all of this help, some celebrities make surprisingly fast comebacks, be it a month later or even showing up to an event only eleven days after giving birth like one of the ladies on this list. Here are 10 celebrities who looked amazing after pregnancy:
9 Kourtney Kardashian
8 Blake Lively
8. Beyoncé Knowles-Carter
7 Mila Kunis
For all stars, the first appearance you make after giving birth is a big deal. Photos will be taken and articles (like this one) will be written about how you look post-baby. Just four months after giving birth, Mila Kunis officially stepped out in a black corseted Dolce & Gabbana dress as seen in the above photo. At four months, many new mothers are still in sweatpants and nursing bras but not Kunis, who looked like she never missed a beat at the premiere of Jupiter Ascending. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, the former co-stars and now parents, welcomed their daughter, Wyatt Isabelle. Kunis credits good old fashioned breastfeeding with helping her bounce back so quickly.
6 Kate Hudson
Hello, abs. It’s been a few years since Kate Hudson has given birth but that doesn’t mean that her body isn’t incredible. The mother of two gave birth to a son in 2004 with then-husband Chris Robinson, and gave birth to a second son in 2011 with then-boyfriend Matthew Bellamy. Being that she was 33-years-old during her second pregnancy, the weight was harder to lose. She was working out for six hours a day in order to shed the baby weight. That’s dedication. By the looks of the above bikini picture from March of this year, the workouts didn’t stop once the baby weight was dropped.
5 Alessandra Ambrosio
4 Gwyneth Paltrow
3 Olivia Wilde
2 Kate Middleton
1 Jessica Alba
Before giving birth, Jessica Alba was every man’s fantasy when she appeared as Nancy in Sin City. After giving birth to not one but two children, Alba remains just as sexy as she was while dancing in Sin City. Alba admits to using rather extreme methods to shed the unwanted pounds after giving birth. She wore a double corset every day and night for three months. Holy painful. Most women wouldn’t be able to make it three months wearing a restrictive corset, but then again, most women are not Jessica Alba.
