She may be one of the most successful British models of the modern day, but Lara Stone has claimed she is no longer “ambitious” since becoming a mother.
Stone said she preferred to “try to be the best mum I can be” after being frightened by the changes in her body during pregnancy.
The model, who is married to comedian David Walliams and has a 14-month-old son, said she had worried about the impact of motherhood on her figure, telling the Sunday Times Style magazine: “My body is my job and my livelihood.”
She added she had found her pregnancy "quite shocking", adding: "Being pregnant affected my work from quite early one - it's not like you can work until you're eight months pregnant.
"It was quite frightening seeing my body change so much."
The model stopped work at four months pregnant, and worried about the "impact" of the break before going back four months after the birth of her son, Alfred.
“I’m not ambitious,” she added, of her attitude now. “My ambition now is to try to be the best mum I can be and raise a happy boy. That’s my plan.
"I have a lovely job, a nice husband, a lovely baby and a dog. I don't feel like there is anything missing from my life."
