It's stressful enough just being a mom. Imagine having to work out six hours a day in addition to raising a family. These athletes were able to bounce back and become the best in their game after having their little ones.

Before recently winning the 2009 U.S. Open Women's Championship, Clijsters took a two-year hiatus when she became a mother to daughter Jada. The Belgian 26-year-old is the first mother to win a Grand Slam singles title since 1980.
