Rufa Mae Quinto proudly bares figure before and after pregnancy at 40
Rufa Mae Quinto showed off pictures of her body before and after she had her first child, Athena Alexandria.
The comedienne gave birth back in February this year and has since bounced back, confident and sexy in one-piece body suit seven months later.
It’s no mean feat given her age. “Yes I am 40 years old! Before and after 7 months post partum body,” she said.
She shared that she gained over 80 pounds during her pregnancy—some photos show her with swollen ankles and feet—but that it was worth it.
Quinto shared that her nose, legs, and ankles were swollen during her pregnancy.
She also said that she would be sharing her experiences on a blog and that she wanted it to be a channel for other moms to share tips on “losing weight, fighting post partum depression, career, food and finances.”
Through all the difficulties like losing her fit figure, hormonal changes, and even hair loss, “go go go lang!”
“Pinakamasarap na nangyari sa buhay ko bilang babae… mag-asawa, mabuntis… maging INA (The best thing that’s happened in my life as a woman was to become a wife, to get pregnant, and become a mother).”
She celebrated her first wedding anniversary with Fil-Am husband Trevor Magallanes on Nov. 25. /ra
