Divine Lee gave birth to her son Baz on May 5, and has recovered very well (and quickly) since. She started walking a day after giving birth via C-section and was even released on her second day post-delivery.

Right before giving birth, Divine was about 144.2 pounds. According to her IG stories, she gained 27 pounds (she later updated it from 26) during pregnancy.

But just six days after her delivery, Divine already saw her upper abs coming back.

Her secret: staying active during her pregnancy.

The first-time celebrity mom wrote, “Working out thru out pregnancy is a life saver post preggo.”

At the time, Divine was still waiting for her doctor’s go signal to start exercising, and she wasn’t on any kind of diet yet.


And that was still the case two and a half weeks later.

Through breastfeeding and healthy eating, Divine almost effortlessly lost all her pregnancy weight. She shared in her new Instagram stories, “I gained [a] total of 27 pounds.

“After giving birth, dropped to 12 pounds then after a week to 6 pounds.

“No diet or exercise. Yet. But breastfeeding and eating healthy talaga. And pag buhat ng mataba kong anak.

Divine also deflected any naysayers in her story, “Just in case may mag nega [saying] I was too thin during pregnancy, I was healthy.”

So future moms, don't be afraid to exercise while pregnant—just make sure to clear it with your doctor first!
