BN Bytes: Hey Yummy Mummy! Stephanie Kalu Uche displays her Post-Baby Figure



Former beauty queen, Stephanie Uche Kalu gave birth to her first child in October 2011. Two months later, Model/Actress Stephanie has bounced back into shape!
Check out recent photos of Stephanie.

New mums should definitely not put themselves under immense pressure to lose post-baby weight. However, maintaining a healthy diet and exercising (with your Doctor’s guidance) during pregnancy definitely makes losing post-baby weight much easier.

      U should know us now, we like to copy copy everything Hollywood does. It’s sad, please let’s learn to stay true to ourselves. Even if we copy, don’t make it so obvious. I’m glad, naija women are starting to take care of their weight.

      My dear, it is news. Serious news! Some people think it is impossible to look fit/toned/ slimmer etc after giving birth. Some people don’t even know they can work out during pregnancy.

    to me she luks a little bit pale, maybe it is the dieting but i tink a nursing mother with a suckling child shd feed comfortably well and give d baby fat sometime b4 exercising on it n not trying 2 shed d fat automatically.

    • Mrsd

      December 11, 2011 at 12:55 am

      yea, i thought she looked pale & a lil drawn too. The toil of pregnancy always reflects on ladies faces, regardless of how hard we try 🙁

    Lovely! It is good to see that Nigerian women are embracing the truth and fact that even after you become a mother, you shouldn’t become a slob, rather take care of yourself. Bella, like you put it, we shouldn’t exert excessive pressure on ourselves to do this but we definitely need to be more aware of this. Looking and being healthy. I am therefore very impressed. All these bitter comments, I guess are from oversized jealous hippos. Don’t worry ladies, God too go change una fat, just hit the gym. x x x

    She should concentrate on breastfeeding & taking care of the baby. The real challenge occurs when she stops breastfeeding.

    • Jay

      December 5, 2011 at 11:13 pm

      Guidance Counselor Latifah, who told you she is not breastfeeding and taking care of her baby? So she should not live her life and be healthy for her and her family? Unnecessary talk!

    I’ve learnt that the longer post baby fat stays, the higher the chances that the woman will never regain anything close to pre baby figure. Kudos to her for putting in the work coz its not easy!

    i wonder how many ladies writing on this blog are expecting or are mothers. post baby figure nonsense. No one is asking anyone to look like a slob, but no one knows the extensive exercise regime, countless nannies, and cooks/ nutritionists to make her a diet plan. How do we want to encourage Nigerian women to achieve this with out saying what really goes down in the background. Its wrong to copy what we see hollywood and E!news doing, lets get the good out of it BN, and drop the nonsense, be original for what its worth. Thumbs up to Steph for looking good, but BN, get more gist out of this and make it news what reading about.

  21. On point!

    December 6, 2011 at 11:25 am

    I totally support looking good and shedding d weight after giving birth! Pop ya collar girl! u did it… Enjoy!

    It takes a considerable amount of effort and assistance (trainers, nutritionist, chef etc) to ‘bounce back’ in 2 months. This is definitely not the norm and that should be highlighted so future moms don’t get into a tizzy when their bounce back is not as rapid. This should definitely not be the expectation for all.

    It can easily take 1yr or more to lose post-baby weight and that is with dedication to eating well and exercising appropriately.

  25. 9ja Mom

    December 6, 2011 at 7:47 pm

    And she looks amazing!!! While it’s not the norm, let’s celebrate her efforts nevertheless because she had to have put in major work to get to this point.

    i doubt if she even added any pregnancy weight in the first place. she just had this really big stomach that kept me wondering if she was pregnant of twins

  27. Afronubia

    December 7, 2011 at 12:22 pm

    She’s just a naturally slim person. Show us a bikini shot and we’ll know if her body has indeed snapped back to shape. Not hating, just saying. btw, why is this news???

  28. na know

    December 7, 2011 at 1:42 pm

    lol, all the comments makes me appreci8 God, for creating different view in persons.but sha, she luks -Lord av mercy. sure d hubby is luvin it, nd she!

  29. Akpeno

    December 7, 2011 at 6:45 pm

    Wow! She looks FANTASTIC! losing weight ain’t easy normally not to talk of after having a child. Abeg 1000 gbasas for you Jare! Who no like am na im business! Haters leave am for im husband!

    Her husband is an international soccer player, she HAS TO KEEP UP Appearances! If you like after you born leave yourself to spread out like bread when dem dump inside water… and watch what happens to your relationship. These days Naija men like lekpa and if you no wan be lekpa dem go find who be lekpa.

    Again Congrats to this lady she looks FANTABULOUS!
