A model, Chanel Iman felt she was under pressure to shed the weight she gained after having a baby rapidly, because she was desperate to get back to work following the birth of her child last August.
The 27-year model and with her other half Sterling Shepard named the baby Cali Clay, and has actually said she was so desperate to get back to work on photoshoots that she felt pressurised into getting her pre-pregnancy body back as quickly as she could.
She said she felt a little bit of pressure, due to the fact that she wished to work! I simply enjoy being on set. So I wished to return into the groove of things.” The sensational model says she’s still working on her body, but thinks she’s “almost back” to her pre-baby weight.
She included: “It doesn’t take place overnight. I am still working hard on physical fitness, and almost back to my normal weight.” But despite being desperate to return to work, NFL star Sterling, 25, says both he and Chanel hate to leave Cali’s side when it concerns work commitments.
He said: “We do not like to leave her at all. I am usually the one that’s away and it’s type of tough on me, however we Face-time, so that helps out. She looks dead at the electronic camera! And I simply made her laugh for the very first time recently.
We were cracking up. It was so amusing.” To which Chanel included: “She smiles and coos when she hears her daddy’s voice due to the fact that he talked with her when she was in the womb.”
And the three-month-old toddler is already a little fashionista, as Chanel is making certain to deck her out in customized products from the NFL shop so she can both look adorable and support her daddy.
Chatting to People magazine, Chanel said: “When Cali’s seeing her daddy play video games, we always put her in the prettiest New York Giants onesies I get from the NFL Shop.
She is his biggest fan, so I like to dress her up and make her appearance cute for the video games. “Sometimes she wears like little New York Giants bows. We have a great deal of customized stuff we got from the NFL Shop site and after that we put her surname on it and Sterling’s number– her onesies with her daddy’s name on the back.”
