She gave birth to her second child just 11 weeks ago, but Chontel Duncan has already been back at the gym for more than a month.
Yet the fitness model, who has been posting incredible shots of her post-baby figure, revealed that her body has changed in ways that social media doesn’t show.
‘My fake boobs are no longer as perky, but they have fed two little miracles so I love them,’ the 28-year-old wrote on Instagram.
‘My skin is quite stretchy around my belly button, and my belly button doesn’t know if it’s an “innie” or an “outie” (looks like a bit of both)’.
Chontel, of Brisbane, also revealed that her posture has become awful, her caesarean scar is bigger, and her core muscles ‘feel like they’ve lost their placement’.
But the model revealed that one of the biggest changes to occur in the last few months cannot be seen in her pictures or status updates.
‘What else has changed is my “SELF LOVE”‘, she said. ‘I truly love my body more than I did before I had babies and that’s the key point here, SELF LOVE.’
Chontel has posted numerous photos of her body while pregnant and after giving birth, often accompanied with candid Instagram captions.
The mum told her followers this week that she believes she is still so ‘incredibly unfit’ after giving birth to her baby son Swayde Noel.
‘Woke up yesterday exhausted and in a blink of an eye slept through my alarm,’ she said.
‘This morning I woke up more determined than ever, got both of my bubbas in the truck, and off we went to training.’
‘It wasn’t my best performance, I am so incredibly unfit, but FAR OUT I feel so much better for it.’
Chontel also recently opened up about the realities of undergoing a caesarean section to deliver Swayde.
‘There’s nothing easy about a cesarea…the tugging, the pushing, the sounds, the smells, the feeling of no control, the fear of something going wrong, the recovery it all terrifies me,’ she said.
‘But I would do it all again in a heart beat.’
