Beautiful brunette Irena Ponaroshku, 35, had promised she would be refraining from her usual routine of regular workouts and strict dieting after welcoming her second son Theodore into the world.
But photographs she has shared with her army of more than two million online admirers on Instagram show that despite that she is already back in great shape.
One shows her looking as slender as ever in a turquoise bikini as she poses on a swing on a beach in Thailand where she likes to spend her winters, far from the Russian cold.
And, in a comment likely to annoy as many women as it impresses, she said she had found it quite easy to shed the 14 kilogrammes (2 st 3 lbs) she gained during pregnancy.
Impressed netizen ‘annabaron.live’ commented simply: “You look great”, while ‘kisa.alisa.2011’ said: “Irene, you are super!!! Beautiful woman with an awesome sense of humor!!!!”
And another online commentator, going under the name of ‘katyakulichok’, added: “Looking fabulous, girl… What a body!”
Irena rose to fame as a host on MTV Russia when she was just 20. She is married to Russian DJ, List, 43, with whom she also has a seven-year-old son.
The beauty, also known for her healthy lifestyle and love of yoga, came top of the Russian edition of Maxim magazine’s list of the 100 Sexiest Women in the country in 2009.
