New mama Beyonce was spotted recently in a Victoria Beckham blue dress (a color she seems to be wearing a lot lately) at a fundraising dinner hosted by First Lady Michelle Obama, and here's what we thought: Wow. She looks back to her normal, pre-pregnancy size already.
We expect celeb moms like Gisele and Heidi Klum to spring back to their usual svelte selves within 15 minutes of giving birth, and we admire (envy) their bounce-back bods. But they're so genetically blessed we can't even try to compare ourselves to them. We can, on the other hand, sort of relate to Beyonce's bootylicious curves and her healthy attitude about body size -- even though those pre-baby "curves" are reportedly an enviable (and still tiny) size 6.
So, to be honest, we're ever-so-slightly bummed that Blue Ivy's mama hasn't retained just a bit more of her post-baby chub -- like the rest of us mere mortals who are still lugging around those last 10 pounds while our babies turn into preschoolers.
We do know that Beyonce is breastfeeding -- and that helps burn calories and shrink a postpartum tummy -- so maybe that's her secret. We're also guessing she has a team of trainers and nutritionists to lend her a hand.
