Gwen Stefani's Unrealistic Body Finally Comes Out of Hiding After Third Baby

gwen stefaniRemember that time Gwen Stefani had a baby and then emerged about a month later, looking like she never was pregnant? Stefani, who recently welcomed another baby boy into the world (Apollo), made an appearance at Coachella this weekend, and all I can say is: Wow. The woman looks fantastic. Of course we mortals are used to seeing celebrity moms snap back into pre-baby shape in record time, but a 44-year-old working mom of three doing it so fast is damn impressive.

Sure, Gwen is loaded and, although she seems incredibly down to earth, likely has nannies and trainers and nutritionists on hand at all times. But! With that said, can we discuss how it's much more difficult to get in shape post-pregnancy when you already have a kid? Or stay in shape during pregnancy when you already have a kid? It's hard, ladies!

Kids, to put it lightly, are extremely time-consuming. They're the greatest thing on this planet, but when they're small -- particularly toddler-small -- man, they will kick your butt. In a way, it's like having a live-in tiny personal trainer, who refuses to let you sit down or drink a cup of coffee in peace for five minutes. So, that's good, cardiovascularly, I suppose. But at the same time, having a toddler doesn't always beget the healthiest of lifestyles. From the lack of sleep to the eating the food they eat (string cheese, anyone?) to the approximately zero hours to go to the gym for a proper work out -- getting in shape can be hard.

Again, Gwen clearly has access to things 99 percent of mothers don't, but I applaud her, regardless. She's a mom of three young boys who has obligations most of us don't have (like, you know, performing in front of millions), and she appears to be in tip-top shape. Good for you, Gwen.

Now. Show us the baby.

How did you get back into shape after your second (or third or fourth!) child?

It's suprising, but not that much. She was a thin/athletic person before she got pregnant so she should be able to bounce back pretty quickly.

I love how women who didn't loose their baby weight quickly assume that only celebrities who have "nannies and trainers and nutritionists on hand at all times" could bounce back in one month.

So do many typical, lower and middle class moms, who kaybayblee3 said, are althletic and fit before.

Sometimes having kids is plenty exercise, my one keeps me fit...he never. Stays. Still. We just go go go.

She's wearing a big jumpsuit - which is perfectly fine and she looks very cute.  But honestly, I think its very difficult to tell what her figure looks like.

She didn't appear to gain much weight with her pregnancy so it's no surprise she looks good. I remember reading an interview with her years ago where she said that she is basically always a bit hungry, but it's worth it to wear cute clothes, so there's that too.

Shes wearing a jumpsuit. She could be wearing the biggest girdle underneath it. Just saying. I love her, so itd be ok if she was, or if she wasnt. Just saying this isnt the best picture to comment on her post baby figure

She was athletic before pregnancy, usually women remain athletic after. It is not unrealistic in the slightest.
