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

Anna, consider yourself lucky. The fact that you could wear your pre-pregnancy clothes after six weeks means that you probably were in great shape before getting pregnant or have really good genetics. But be realistic. Most doctors do not even recommend exercising until 6-8 weeks post-partum (depending on whether you have a c-section or not). Given that, six weeks to get back into shape is a lofty goal for most people.

How careless to post such a judgemental comment, Anna. We don’t all have nannys and can get a full night’s sleep and ave time to work out. My son is 2 years old and I still weigh oly 10 pounds less then my pregnancy weight. I had hypothyroid issuesthat were caused by the pregnancy and my kid never sleeps so it is hard to have time or energy for anything other than him. And he is my top priority….not being skinny and getting praised for it. Ridiculous!

WOW Anna…I guess you’re perfect, aren’t you? Most new mothers would rather spend time with their babies than be working out all the time trying to get back to pre-baby weight in 6 weeks!! You need a reality check honey!

When I first read Anna’s comment I felt horrible about myself. But then I read all the other comments after that and realized that I’m an idiot for letting someone like Anna influence me so negatively.

I gained 60 pounds during my pregnancy because I was on strict bed rest. I went into preterm labor at 23 weeks and almost lost my baby. She was born full-term and healthy, and she turns one in a few days. I’m still not at my pre-pregnancy weight. I suffered from ppd and was on meds that made me retain a LOT of weight for a long time. Now I am happy and healthy and I worship my daughter. The weight will go off when it’s time for it go off.

So thank you ladies for the support.

As for Anna, how dare you accuse me of being lazy and not serious enough to care about myself and my body? I did exactly that and I’m still wearing my maternity jeans.

I cant understand what’s all this thing with Miranda Kerr. She’s just another girl on the block and if she is back modeling, thats what she do for a living and has lot of money to pay someone to take care of Flyn.

First, Miranda looks amazing. Good on her for having the time and money to put into a personal trainer, dietician and all the other people required to assist her in getting back into shape that quickly. A normal, working mother on a budget does not have those resources and therefore it is much harder if not almost impossible to lose all the baby weight in that amount of time.

Um your idiots Miranda gained weight responsiblyduring pregnancy and if your nursing like she is your going to lose it faster anyway. jst because she can aford a dietician doesn’t mean she has one your supposed to nurse a child 8-12 times a day for up to a half an hour each session so that burns alot of calories. at least she wasn’t sick her entire pregnancy and hospitalized for it like my mother was with me and at 5’3″ gained 65lbs and I didn’t weigh as much as flynn did nor is 9lbs 12oz huge for a baby try being 4’11” and giving birth to a 13 1/2 lb baby as Dolly Sinatra did her only son Frank

I lost all of my baby weight within 2 months…no exercising, just simple old fashioned breast-feeding. Anyway, I wanted to breastfeed my daughter until she was one…so I continued to lose weight up until she was 8 months old. I was sooooo thin and bobble-head looking. It was scary. So not everyone should rush to workout to regain their pre-baby body because for some people it happens naturally. I hated being a size 0/25 with no curves. I’m almost back to my regular weight now…a size 4 or 27. Everyone’s body after baby is different and it doesn’t matter what you look like to your baby!

First I want to say I’m sorry to have offended anyone. I should have said there is no excuse to hang onto post baby weight IF you didn’t have medical problems during your pregnancy, like being ordered to stay in bed, or had to take meds that put weight on after baby was born. Of course those situations should be taken into consideration …..and I did not address that at all.
I guess I did come across in my first post as kinda harsh in my opinion and I should have left room for extenuating circumstances. Sorry to those out there that were hurt by my words, I’ll be more thoughtful in the future.
Good luck to you all in your goals towards good health.
