Yummy mummy Pamela (40) in super svelte shape, just six months after having baby

The blonde broadcaster -- who gained a two stone while pregnant -- is in show-stopping shape, only months after becoming a new mum, and is thanking her mother for her svelte look.

"It's all down to breastfeeding and genes, apparently my mother was exactly the same, she got her figure back very quickly after having babies," revealed Pamela.

"When I was pregnant, I was prepared for putting on weight and accepted it, I embraced the whole thing and if I never got it back, I didn't care."

Despite her cravings for carb-loaded cakes and sandwiches, the Dubliner -- who exercised throughout her pregnancy -- is looking trim and fabulous.

"I walked loads and did a lot of swimming; I stayed very active and that made a huge difference."

The 40-year-old and her partner Ronan Ryan became parents to little boy Harrison in March and the TV host thinks that being an older mum has been very positive for her:

"Firstly, I'm so grateful to get pregnant at 39 even though my brain has turned to porridge since.

"The fact that I'm an older mum, maybe if I was younger I'd have more energy but I'm more patient now than I was in my 20s. I don't stress about the small stuff anymore and it's very freeing to be like that," she said.


"I'm not saying that my partying days are over but if I was younger and just had a baby, I'd be itching to get back out there but I don't feel envious at all," Pamela added.

The fashionista and former Off The Rails host insists that her new role is best thing to ever happen to her:

"I'm in a baby bubble at the moment and I couldn't have imagined the love I feel for him and that it's reciprocated, it's just mind-blowing."

"(Harrison's) all consuming and I love it -- all of it. There's nothing I don't like about motherhood, even the sleep deprivation is manageable.

"I'm woken up in the middle of the night but when you see that little face, it's no problem."

The former Miss Ireland said that she plans to get back to work some time this month and, hopefully, make a return to television.

"I'm hoping that things will start to pick up and I will get a bit of work here and there," she said.
