Victoria’s Secret Model Lily Aldridge Reveals Her Post-Baby Workout Plan: Ballet, Pilates, and Two-a-Days (EXCLUSIVE)
Just in time to strut down the catwalk for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, new mother Lily Aldridge told Celebuzz a rigorous routine of ballet, pilates, and two-a-days got her runway-ready.
The 26-year-old model, who gave birth to baby girl Dixie Pearl just over four months ago, was actually pregnant during the last VS show in November 2011 and has since credited eating organic foods — and her supportive husband, Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill — as the perfect slim-down secrets.
Celebuzz: You’re always in such amazing shape. You’re juggling motherhood, being a wife, and having such a successful career — how do you do it all?
Lily Aldridge: It’s all about balance! My family is my number one priority and I feel so blessed to have the best job in the world!
CB: What has been your fitness plan for getting back into shape after having your baby girl?
LA: I’ve been training very hard to get my body to bounce back from the baby for the show. I’ve been in New York taking a lot of ballet classes at Ballet Beautiful and also doing a lot of pilates.
LA: I’ve been eating a lot of organic veggies and proteins. Especially leading up to the show you need to eat a very clean diet.
CB: Have you been amping up the workouts for the Victoria’s Secret fashion show?
LA: Yes, I’ve been doing two-a-day workouts some days! It’s a lot of work to get ready for the show, but I love it so it’s worth it.
LA: Balancing my time! I always want to be there when my daughter is awake, so I try to schedule my workouts around naptime.
CB: How has your husband Caleb been supportive?
LA: He’s the most supportive, wonderful man in the world, I’m very blessed!
CB: What’s the best part about motherhood?
LA: She looks just like Caleb!
CB: Everyone always highly anticipates the Victoria’s Secret show every year and it never disappoints. What were you excited for most?
LA: I think the musical acts this year are the best I’ve ever seen. Every year the show just gets bigger and bigger!
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs Dec. 4 (10 p.m. ET/PT) on CBS.
