It's been just six weeks since Kristin Cavallari gave birth to son Camden -- and, thanks to a rigorous exercise routine, she's looking great. But she wants the world to know that she has not lost all of the weight yet.
Earlier today, Us Weekly posted an article in which an anonymous source claimed that Cavallari "has already lost all the weight by working out like crazy with a trainer." But the 25-year-old, who gave birth to her first child on Aug. 8, says that's simply not true.
"Just like every other new mom out there, they know the weight just does not magically fall off," she told Life & Style. "The truth is I am struggling to lose the last few pounds that I have but I am happy with my weight and I'm not going to kill myself for it."
The former star of The Hills also took to her Twitter to clear things up: "I haven't lost all of my baby weight yet," she posted on Sept. 21. "Thats sending the wrong message to women."
But Cavallari has been working hard to get to her goal, and she recently teased some of her workouts on Twitter.
"Walking uphill on the treadmill to work out this booty. Bye bye baby weight," the new mom wrote on Sept. 13.
People posted the first image of Cavallari with Cameron on Wednesday -- and though you couldn't see her slimmed-down body, the new mom was positively glowing with happiness. In the accompanying interview, Cavallari recalls how her world came together again once her son was first placed in her arms.
"It was the most incredible moment I’ve ever felt,” she explains. “With Camden, I’ve realized what really matters. We’re a family."
Cavallari was home alone when she first felt what she thought were contractions. Her fiancé, Jay Cutler, was away at Chicago Bears training camp when she woke up at 4 a.m. with serious pains, but her doctor deduced it was false labor. Later that day Cavallari felt the real deal, and fortunately Cutler had returned from his football practice so they could go together. Cavallari spent 10 hours in labor before their son came out into the world.
“The pain was like nothing I’ve ever experienced," she tells People. “It was so painful but a different kind of pain -- because I knew we were going to meet our son. It was worth every minute and I’ll do it again.”
