Irish Daily Star, 31-May-2013

New mum Pippa O’Connor is the envy of mothers around Ireland — she didn’t put on extra weight while pregnant.

The top model admitted: “I didn’t put on that much weight when pregnant, just the baby.”

Back to her usual slim figure already, she said: “I don’t have a secret — I’m a real chocoholic.

“Actually I was eating more — I was anaemic and would get dizzy so three meals weren’t enough. I’d have to snack in between with a yoghurt or nuts.”

Pippa (28) gave birth to little Ollie seven weeks ago, her first baby with her hubby, TV presenter Brian Ormond (32).

And yesterday she was back modelling at the launch of the Marks & Spencer ‘Produced in Ireland’ cookery series — her first job since taking unofficial maternity leave.

She said: “I’m not really back properly — I just do nice things like this, otherwise it’s easy to sit at home all day.”
