7 Celebrity Moms Whose Post-Baby Bodies Will Shock You (PHOTOS)

Kristin CavallariThere simply has to be some sort of magical formula in the water in Hollywood, because even celebrity moms who pack on a ton of weight during pregnancy seem to somehow lose it overnight -- making the rest of us feel like a bunch of fat, frumpy women with cottage-cheese thighs and zero willpower.

Seriously -- how do so many famous women manage to bounce right back after giving birth as if they never had a tiny human being living inside their bodies? Take Kristin Cavallari, for example. She just welcomed her son Camden on August 8, making him exactly 2 months old. And this picture of her was taken in New York City just last week -- and serves as evidence that she's already back to her minuscule pre-baby size. (Baby? What baby?)

And Kristin isn't the only famous mom to have given birth in the past year and snapped right back into shape. Take a look at the photos below to see six more amazing post-baby bodies that will make you cringe with jealousy.

How long did it take you to lose your baby weight? (Or are you still trying?)

    I think it's mostly in the genes... I had twins and 9 days after having them, I could fit right back into my pre-pregnancy jeans, even though I had gained around 55 lbs during pregnancy. I am so thankful! Lucky Lucky!

    I don't think its anything special... Most of them are wearing black, and very carefully dressed. Also in hollywood they get a c section and tummy tuck simultaneously.... That doesn't impress me. Thats something anyone with money can do.

    It's a lot of things... weight gained during pregnancy, the shape you were in and stay in during pregnancy, genetics, how hard you work afterwards, diet, etc. My first two I didn't have to work to get back into my pre-pregnancy clothes.. they fit the day after giving birth but my last two took me over 6 mos to shrink down and a year to fully regain my pre-baby body. These women's careers require them to be in exceptional shape so most likely they were dieting (to an extent) and working out throughout their pregnancy and hit the gym 3weeks post-partum. I hate how you have to have the page reload everytime you hit the arrow >=/ Oh and Snooki looks like a $2.00 hooker! A sweatshirt does not constitute a mini-dress, j/s.

    While some of these celebrities have trainers and such to help them bounce back after pregnancy, some women just have bodies that bounce back on their own. I just gave birth 3 days ago and a stranger would never know by looking at me. Not bragging, but just saying that some women, who aren't celebrities shrink back down almost immediately without trying.

    How is it "shocking" if it's what happens to all celebrities?

    Its all about money and good underwear, for the most part. lol

    If I had someone that could watch my little ones while I spent an hour at the gym every day- I'd look awesome. Also, they have chefs and personal assistants that aid in their day to day life and allows them a chance to eat better than most. Plus, it is there job- they better be getting back into shape, or they'll lose all that money!

    I had 2 children and for both it took 2 months for me to get back to prebaby weight. To get back into shape though it took 3-4 months. As many have said before, it's a mix of many things that determines how quickly a mother can get back into pre-pregnancy body.

    Something else to think about: as been said, these women have money to use to get back into shape. But for most of them, how much money they make depends on their body, so they have that incentive to get back into shape.

    It doesn't just apply to celebrities.  Some of us don't gain insane amounts of weight during pregnancy.  Some of us are in awesome shape before we get pregnant.  I am four months post partum and am skinnier now than I was before I got pregnant.  I don't have tons of money, I don't have a trainer or a chef.  I work full time, run a household and go to school.  Genes definitely play a part, but realistically you can't gain 50 or 60 pounds and expect it to magically fall right off.  It takes work.

    It's simple, they chose themselves over their children. Such as choosing to formula feed instead of breast feed, and have a nanny taking care of the child while they spent hours at the gym. When you breast feed, you have to eat constantly and have good rest to keep good nutrition in your body to be able to supply both yourself and baby a healthy diet. These women obviousley chose to look good instead. Tisk Tisk. So sad! Why have children at all if you want to pawn them off to someone else for your own vanity?

    Wow Jess, judgemental much. Eating constantly, doesn't equal being heavy.

    Not all celebrities "pawn their kids off" either. And to be fit you don't need to spend HOURS in the gym.
