The Daily Mail today has a story about model Anna Freemantle who, at age 32, gave birth and then got back on the catwalk for a modeling job nine days afterwards. What? Yeah. "Although the whole process of pregnancy is quite private and quiet, the one thing it made me realize is how lucky I've always been never to have felt particularly hindered by my body," Freemantle told the Mail. "I've always been a pretty active person so the minute I got out of labour the one thing I really felt like was to get back on my feet and go for walks. I guess a bit of good genes in terms of the elasticity of the skin with no stretch-marks whatsoever as a result was pure luck." [Daily Mail]
