Celebrity mothers Catherine Zeta-Jones and Victoria Beckham have been criticized for their unrealistic post-baby bodies, in a survey of new British moms.
British mothers admit they feel under pressure to regain their pre-children bodies, but without the help of expensive personal trainers utilised by most star mums, they are able to regain their regular figures within weeks of giving birth.
But the super-slim celebs have now been slammed for showing-off their birth bodies, because of the pressure it puts on most mothers who fight a losing battle to shed the pounds.
The survey of 2,000 mothers – commissioned by Britain’s Mother and Baby
magazine – found that only three per cent were happy with their figure after
giving birth. Magazine editor Elena Dalrymple says, "The pressure from super-slim celebrities to be a ‘yummy mummy’ is so intense, ordinary mums feel
they should have a film star body and be back in their jeans just days after the birth."
Those interviewed rated CHICAGO actress Zeta-Jones with the best body of star mothers, ahead of Beckham, Kate Winslet and Elizabeth Hurley.
What do you think? If you’re a mom, has seeing celebrity moms’ fabulous post-baby figures made you feel more pressure to bounce back to your fighting weight?
