Who Deserves the Best Post-Baby Slim Down Title in 2008?

There has been no shortage of newborns in Hollywood this year, as celebrities seemed to give birth like dominoes. Some new mamas shed their post-pregnancy weight in a matter of a couple months (which is no small feat), revealing their slimmed-down bods in bikinis and on red carpets. Which of these celebrity moms deserves the Best of 2008 title?

I don't like this post. I think maternity is a serious business and nowadays it seems that its only value is this race. Anyone could do the same with 3 nannies, a trainer and a cook. Of course being pregnant doesn't mean to put on 30 pounds but I don't see the focus on health here.

Oh, where is the Victoria Secret model Alessandra? Now she looks great, so much so I forget she's had a baby this year.

I don't find this post offensive at all. If you take care of yourself while pregnant and make getting back into shape, not so much slimming down, important to you then you will find a way (even without a personal trainer). It bothers me to hear women hating on each other for doing something positive for themselves. With that said Angelina has always been thin, she seems to have trouble keeping weight on (like some of my thin friends), so I can't count her. I don't think she tried or really hit the gym. I wanted to say JLo because as a Hispanic woman having twins with a already curvy body, she looks great, but I picked Nicole Kidman cause I admire her food and work out ethic she had while she was pregnant. True you should eat more when your pregnant, but what "more" you choose to eat makes all the difference. I'm sure your baby's development prefers spinach to ice cream.

Uhm, maybe we shouldn't focus so much on losing baby weight as quickly as humanly possible? That shouldn't be a reward; its women feeling pigeon-holed to do so, lest they be ridiculed by the media. So, no.

I didn't even know all these people had babies this year. While I don't find this post horribly offensive, I definitely understand that opinion. It does create unreaslistic expectations for women who see the celebrities and think, "what's wrong with me that I can't do the same thing?"

Gwen. Because she didnt jump on the skinny bandwagon and she's taking it easy, plus she looks great!

ugh. cannot stand jessica alba for some reason :\ I voted for Gwen Stefani. . . it seemed to me she didn't go from being pregnant one day to stick thin the next, unlike some of the other celebrities named. Awards should also go to J.Lo and Christina because both seemed to take their time and worked hard for the pre baby weight.

I thought Giada had her baby in 2007?

OH GEEZ. I am not at all offended by this post, because I recognize the difference between REPORTING ON women losing lots of baby weight and PRESSURING women to lose lots of baby weight. And I voted Jessica Alba, because she's not one of those stick skinny girls, and it was probably a little harder for her to get the weight off, but man did she look rockin' in those bikini pics!

I would say Jennifer Lopez, because she is older than alot of the others and she is also not naturally skinny. She had twins and worked HARD training for a triathlon.. Which she completed. She deserves an award for that accomplishment. It takes more than a nanny to make this happen. It takes discipline and hard work.

Maybe we should all stop focusing on new moms slimming down and celebrate their other achievements - like motherhood?

FitSugar, Why did you repost this? When I looked last night his post had been taken down. When I saw that it was gone I thought "good for you, FitSugar." I wonder what these Sugar websites are trying to accomplish with all of the focus on "bikini body!" and "post-baby slimdown!" Maybe you can clue me in?

ITA agree with Spectra! I mean it took 9 months to put on the weight right? Why not take it off at a reasonable pace?!

I didn't vote. I think this post is ridiculous and offensive. I thought this site was about being healthy and fit not who can lose the most weight in 2 weeks.

I said Halle Berry, hers seemed natural and not too forced. But if anything I think Nicole Richie is a bit healthier now, not a slim down but I think it helped her body the most.

I agree with everyone else who thinks this post is a bit offensive. It's not a freakin' race to see who can get the skinniest the fastest after having a baby. Yeah, you can leave your 6 week old with a nanny for 2 hours a day so you can do your workout and hire a personal chef cook your food, but isn't it more important to be bonding with your baby? I mean, I think we should be looking to women that slimmed back down in a more realistic time frame for motivation.

Definetly Jessica Alba. She looks amazing! And like skiwi, I think Alessandra Ambrosio definetly looks amazing post-baby!!! She should've been on this list.

I agree with the posts above, I don't think it's right to pressure women to loose all the baby weight in two weeks. It's not healthy. To most women it takes months, when you have to take care of a baby you can't be working out all the time. I voted for Halle Berry because she didn't get back in shape in two days, it took a while for her, like it does to most women, and she looks fantastic now. Christina, Jessica and Jennifer look great and healthy. Angelina, Nicole Ritchie and Nicole Kidman look way too skinny - I don't think we should be celebrating their "slimmed-down" bodies.

I would've picked Alessandra Ambrosio(sp?). did you see her on that runway?!

I agree this post is completely offensive. The focus and pressure placed on the post pregnancy body is ridiculous. There is a difference between being healthy and what is being advocated here.

it's interesting that so many people have voted for jessica alba since i don't think that she was the biggest change, if you think about it, it probably should have been jennifer lopez since she had twins and now she's tiny -but i said nicole richie cause she was back to super tiny in no time. nicole kidman didn't even look pregnant to me when she was just about to deliver so i feel like she was just one of the lucky ones.
