‘I don’t care… this is my mum body’: Model and new mother Elyse Knowles reveals why she refuses to give in to post-baby body pressures months after welcoming son Sunny
She welcomed her first child, a baby boy named Sunny, with fiancé Josh Barker on February 25.
But Elyse Knowles refuses to allow societal pressures get to her, as she reveals she’s proud of her ‘mum body.’
Speaking to The Herald Sun about returning to her model size, Elyse, 28, said: ‘To be honest, I really don’t care.’
No pressure! Elyse Knowles welcomed baby son, Sunny, with fiancé Josh Barker on February 25, but the new mother is in no rush to get back to her pre-baby body. Speaking to The Herald Sun, the 28-year-old model, said: ‘To be honest, I really don’t care… This is me, this is my mum body now’
‘This is me, this is my mum body now. I’m completely confident, happy, and relaxed.’
She added that she simply wants to focus on her son and ‘keeping him happy.’
Earlier this week, the former The Block star echoed these thoughts as she posted on her Instagram Stories, admitting she was so busy attending to her newborn, she didn’t realise she had dreadlocks forming on the back of her head.
‘Just when you thought you did good to wash ur [sic] hair and leave the house… dred locks [sic] all in the back of my head. MINT,’ she captioned a selfie.

The post comes after the model and working mum undertook a glamorous photo shoot earlier this month.

Elyse posted a series of pictures that contrasted how she looked before Sunny arrived and after.
