Rachel Stevens‘ award-winning slim figure has been making us jealous for years, and now she’s revealed the secret behind her ‘Sexiest Woman of the Year’ body – MOTHERHOOD.
Yep, it’s simply the hectic nature of motherhood that’s helped Rachel maintain her slim figure and shape up in time for the Strictly Come Dancing tour, where she replaced a now-pregnant Frankie Bridge.
Speaking in OK! magazine, the 36-year-old admitted that winning FHM’s prestigious award boosted her confidence after the birth of gorgeous daughter Minnie last April, but that it’s the lack of time in motherhood that’s allowed her to stay in shape.
She explained: “It’s pretty damn cool!
“Especially as I’d just had a baby and at 3am you’re feeling very unsexy! You don’t have time to eat when you’ve got kids!”
Despite being on the glitterball tour, Rachel admitted that she might not keep her trim look for long as her and husband Alex Bourne might try for a third littl’un – a baby boy!
“In a few years’ time, I might think I’d love to try again. I do love having girls – boys are gorgeous too but I’m so happy they have each other.”
Speaking of the Strictly tour, Rachel told the magazine that she put her children first, and decided she’d only do the tour if she could fit it around them and their needs. Mother knows best!
She said: “I had it planned out, then got the call about replacing Frankie on a Thursday and on Friday I was in rehearsals.
“I always weigh up whether a job is something I really want to do and, logistically, can it work around the girls because they come first.
“I miss my girls so much now I’m on tour, and Alex too. But on my days off I’m straight home.”
We don’t blame you, Rachel.
Rachel, Alex and their two girls make a gorgeous little family, and we can’t wait to see if they decide to add another little one into the mix!
