Hot mama alert! Miranda Kerr surprised the audience at Thursday’s Balenciaga show at Paris Fashion Week, walking the runway just two months after giving birth. The 27-year-old Aussie, who welcomed son Flynn with husband Orlando Bloom on Jan. 6, modeled in Balenciaga’s Paris show for the fourth year in a row, presenting to a crowd that included her proud husband, his mom Sonia and Vogue editor Anna Wintour (baby Flynn arrived in Paris with the family the day before). Kerr posted some backstage shots on her blog Thursday, sharing pictures of her look — a black draped dress with leather details — and a last-minute makeup touch-up. Tell us: What do you think of Kerr’s return to the runway? Kate Hogan

Wow, Anna. Really? Really? Doctors don’t even recommend starting a workout routine until 6 weeks post-partum, after your body has a chance to recover from the pregnancy. I had a baby 10 months ago and am still working on losing the last 7 pounds. Does it mean I’m lazy? No. It means I am focused on the most important thing – my son. Those who breastfeed also tend to hold on to more of the weight until their babies are weaned. I am more concerned with the health and wellbeing of my child more than getting back into a bikini!

Anna, you sound more self-absorbed than anything. Spend some time playing with your baby

That’s wonderful for Miranda! I do agree with Heather and Lashonda and really appreciate their comments, though. It’s wonderful that some women are able to quickly get back into shape because they are fortunate enough to have pregnancies free from serious complications, have an accomodating schedule, and have a body type capable of quickly rebounding. As someone who had serious pregnancy complications, it has been very difficult to get back in shape–and that is all the more troubling since I used to be at the gym five days a week. Instead of beating ourselves up about how quickly we fit back into our jeans, we should be grateful for the wonderful babies that bless our lives and make them our top priority. The gym will still be there when we’re able and ready…

WOW anna you need to get help if you are soo concerned about losing the baby weight;you might have an eating disorder. The average lady is a size 14. Miranda Kerr is a super model so its expeted that she would do anything and everthing in her power to loose that baby weight. Not everyone in the world that has a baby is asuper model.

Anna – all the fatties get upset when you post something that doesn’t let them justify being overweight & lazy. I totally agree w you though.

Anna and Ivyleaguer, try having an emergency c-section followed by a 5 day hospital stay and a 8 week restriction on activity, and then say it’s lazy that 6 weeks later I wasn’t in my prepregnancy clothes. I am 7 months out now and I am thrilled to be smaller than I was prepregnancy. But everyone’s situation is different and you cannot judge someone. It’s up to the woman and her body as to how much weight she loses. I would take bonding with my baby anyday over going to the gym.

Being a model IS Miranda’s job, and as such, she had to get back into shape quickly. Anna, good for you for being able to lose the weight quickly, but instead of being witchy about others, try to be a little more encouraging.

Miranda probably was contracted to walk for months now, if not longer. It’s her JOB to look good and get her body back ASAP! She’s probably got multiple nannie, chefs, housekeepers, personal trainers, etc. to help her get back in shape and focus on her body. If I didn’t have to do housework and if I had time to workout for hours a day, I’d probably look like her, too! Seriously, how many diapers do you think she’s changed? Also, I 100% agree with Trina – I’d rather be weigh 10 pounds more than my pre-pregnancy weight and be fortunate enough to spend such quality time with my daughter! It seems nowadays everyone expects you to be either anorexic or overweight – what’s wrong with simply being at a HEALTHY weight?

Did I say I went to a gym ……no I NEVER did. I worked out at home in front of the tv with whatever exercise program or tape I could find and did it whenever I had the time. During naps, or after my baby went to sleep for the night, etc.

Did I say I did not have pregnancy problems or my bbaby didn’t have problems….no. I had so many problems I can’t list them all, severly high blood pressure was one of them, but I walked during pregnancy gently and for 20 minutes at a time around the neighborhood. And after each of my babies was born they had problems sleeping due tto severe allergies and only slept 3 hrs at a time…….for 3 yrs.
I thought I’d lose my mind sfrequently, but kept a positive attitude and took the help from my Mom and friends when they offered so I could nap or do some floor exercises with my cans of fruit for weights and stretchy cord thingy.
I have no big ego, just a ‘can do’ attitdue and know if I can feel better myself by being as healthy as possible then I’ll be a better mother, that’s all.
I make fruit smooothie green power drinks to start each day too. Girls, please take as long as necessary to get back into shape and just let your body, mind and spirit lead you, but be good to yourself.
I realize we all have different metabolisms, but one needs to get going and not make lame excuses for not working out in some fashion. Heck take long walks whenever you can and if you have no one to give you breaks then you need to take care of that because you’ll end up being stressed out and not patient and loving with your child in the end.
Just my opinion, not trying to be all vain, girls, settle down and let’s have a nice chat.
