It’s here folks: the first pictures of Michelle Bridges’ new baby.
We suspected her elusive Instagram presence had a magazine deal behind it, and we were right.
Bridges, 45, posed with little Axel, who was born in December, for the latest issue of the Australian Woman’s Weekly.
In the accompanying story, Bridges calls Axel, her child with fellow fitness guru Steve “The Commando” Willis, “the best thing I’ve ever done”.
“I’ve got this mother instinct that people always talk about,” the proud, sleep-deprived new mum says. “It’s quite fierce and protective.”
The couple spent Christmas with their new son as well as Willis’s three children from two previous relationships.
Bridges faced lots of criticism for her intense workout regimen while pregnant; now she’s facing more over her post-partum exercising.
She posted a her post-birth workout online to followers who asked her about how she plans to get back into shape.
