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

Thanks for the sincere apology Anna.

YEAH ANNA!!! MOTHER OF THE CENTURY AWARD!!! There, do you feel better about yourself or do you need to make a few more ignorant judgemental comments?

I agree with Anna, and everyone is being out of line and just mean towards her. Everyone has their own pregnancy,labour story, etc…. I think Anna was just trying to say that some women after giving birth use it has an excuse for not losing the weight. I have a huge circle of friends and almost all of them has had kids and they still have extra weight from their pregnancy and they always use an excuse for not to do something about it. I have had two kids, very close together, gained 60 pounds with each of them and lost all my weight plus some, and it was hard but I did and it didn’t get in the way with raising them. I did just what Anna did, I exercised at home while they where sleeping and or during their nap time and or when my husband came home. I’m sick and tired of moms using that as an excuse, get off your fat ass, stop complaining and do something about, don’t you want to set a good example to your children by taking care of yourself, working out and eating well.

Why does it matter what someone looks like? Fat or skinny? I had a baby 5 years ago and I am still 50 pounds over what I should be. But who cares ! I love to eat and I dont deprive myself of food and things I like so I can look a certain way. When I die, God isnt going to say “your fat, you cant come to heaven” so for all these woman that need to be a size zero … eat some cheesecake. A little wrinkle in your stomache isnt going to kill you.

Anna does have a point there. She has tried to apologize to all those who felt offended by her comment, but to no avail for some. So, if the shoe fits, wear it. I had twins almost 3 years ago and gained about 60 lbs, was bedridden since I hit 4 months of pregnancy, and then had them 6 weeks early. I was in the hospital for 3 months before I had them and another 3 weeks after. Just as I was getting back to my pre-pregnancy weight, I found out I was pregnant again. I gained 30 ibs with that pregnancy, was bedridden from 5 months, had gestational diabetes, and had him 4 weeks early. I breastfed for both pregnancies and even breastfed the last one till he turned a year last month. I still haven’t achieved my pre-pregnancy weight even though I am very active with 3 little ones and three older kids and a husband, work, school, etc. I try to enjoy every minute of my family’s lives with them. We walk a lot and I definitely try to maintain a healthy diet. And before you all go around judging me harshly, let me tell you that I am an active duty soldier also. It is not an easy battle to lose pregnancy weight for a lot of people due to various reasons. When I had my first 1ST child, I only weighed 115lbs and gained 40lbs with him. I lost 40lbs within 4 weeks. With my 2nd child, I weighed 120lbs and gained 65lbs with her with preeclampsia. I was back down to 117lbs in 6 weeks and when I had my 3rd child, I weighed 117lbs and gained 35lbs with him. I was back down to 130lbs 6 weeks post partum. But over the years as I have aged, it got harder to lose weight as quickly so that’s why I still have 10 more lbs to go even after a year post baby. Yes I had my 1st 3 kids 4 years apart and in my 20’s, and the last 3 almost 10 years after the third kid, so you do the math and statistics about age, pregnancy and weight gain. So, all I’m really saying here is that I can empathize with both Anna and the other ladies’ comments because I’ve been there. On the real subject at hand, Miranda really doesn’t look that great. I bet she’d rather be walking with her baby instead of the catwalk. Good luck to her, Orlando, and the baby.

what is wrong with anna? that might be your experience. but i think most women would prefer you to keep your smugness to yourself.

I had my first baby five months ago. Right after I had him I was back to the size I was before I was pregnant. Somehow, I guess because of a decrease in metabolism, I ended up gaining about 20 pounds since my baby was born. My goal isn’t to get back to my pre baby weight, but to be healthy. That should be everyone’s goal.

I didn’t see her apology when my post went up. I think it shows more character for her to admit she worded things poorly and think it was nice of her to say. Sorry my comment came in after the apology but I can’t change cyberspace timing.

Mother of Three on

Heather, you sound just like the people Anna is talking about. Its not about being rude either. America is seriously overweight and our children are catching the disease. Unless we get up and excersize and show them a good example, like getting back into shape post baby, then they will inherit the health problems that most of adult americans currently suffer from. Excuses, excuses, its always good to eat veggies and walk if you cannot do anything more vigorous. Maintaining a large waistline comes with a sedate high calorie life style and those who claim big bones, or thyroid, etc. are just full of excuses. Model thin? Maybe not but overweight due to health problems. Ridiculous.
