Rod Stewart Penny Lancaster Baby

Rod Stewart Penny Lancaster Baby, When you’re married to Rod Stewart, part of the job description is being a leggy, glamorous blonde.
So when her baby son Aiden was seven months old, mum-of-two Penny Lancaster decided it was time to get back to her fighting weight.
“I wouldn’t have dreamt of putting on a swimsuit back then, let alone being photographed wearing one,” she says.
“I was out of condition because of the pregnancy and its aftermath. I felt very self-conscious about posing in this white one-piece.
“But I must admit that when I caught sight of myself in the mirror I thought, ‘Not bad for a mum of two at the age of 40!’?”
Not bad, indeed. Almost a year after giving birth to Aiden, a brother for six-year-old Alistair, Penny has shed nearly all of her baby weight.
She began her fitness campaign in September, weighing 12½ stone.
“My goal is to have lost 20lbs by the time Aiden is one in the middle of next month,” she explains. “And I’m getting there. By the beginning of December, I’d lost 10lbs, slowly and steadily, which meant I was halfway there.”
Despite having two kids and turning 40 Penny still looks her leggy best
But Penny, who stands 6ft 1in inher stockinged feet, doesn’t want to get too thin. “I’ve got an athletic frame,” she says. “I’ve always been a swimmer. I was a dancer. I taught aerobics.
“But I was way too skinny for my height and build before I got pregnant. I was 140lbs, exactly 10 stone, before I fell pregnant with Alastair.
“And I looked really gangly. At 160lbs, which is about 11½ stone, I was much better proportioned. As you get older it can be ageing if you’re too skinny.”
While pregnant with Aiden, Penny tipped the scales at 15 stone.
But, of course, a lot of that was baby, and she started losing the extra weight as soon as he was born.
“I breast-fed him for seven months which helped the weight drop off,” she says.
But Penny found that motherhood and fitness were a tough combination, so she took her time before starting to get her figure back.
“The broken nights left me feeling like I had permanent jet-lag. I certainly didn’t have any excess energy to start working out and trying to regain my pre-pregnancy figure.
“Nor was I ready to cut back on my diet in case it affected the quality of my milk.”
Penny’s boys, who bring Rod’s total brood up to eight children, were much longed for.
She and Rod, who celebrated his 67th birthday last week, tied the knot in June 2007 and their first son Alastair was born two years earlier.
Then, last February, after three attempts at IVF, Penny gave birth to his little brother Aiden.
It was only after seven months of enjoying bonding with her baby that Penny decided to go back to the gym, under the instruction of personal trainer Gary O’Connor. She also stuck to a balanced diet and took to drinking a type of green tea called Cho Yung.
“What impressed me about the tea was that all its ingredients were natural,” she says. “No chemicals were involved, and it was mild. I also liked the fact you don’t need to add milk and sugar, unlike with the breakfast tea I normally drank.
“What’s more, it cleanses your liver and speeds up your metabolism, the equivalent of a detox. Because I felt I’d flushed out all the toxins, it meant I wasn’t tempted to order chips, for instance.”
In fact, the tea is so miraculous, Penny says, it even puts you off cake.
“At Alastair’s sixth birthday party at the end of November, there was a cake but the idea of putting all of that frosting and icing in my mouth almost made me gag.”
Initially, on Penny’s regime, she didn’t lose any weight because she was just toning up.
“It took a few weeks of gaining muscle and then getting toned before my weight started gradually to reduce,” she says.
“More importantly, after 10 weeks, I’d also lost two and a half inches from my waist.”
She currently exercises for an hour three times a week but is planning to increase that to four sessions.
And now she’s enjoying being able to wear her sxy pre-pregnancy outfits once again. Penny adds: “When I was carrying more weight, I made a point of not trying to squeeze into something that was a bit tight because it would only draw attention to the extra pounds.
“So I’d wear something loose or buy something in a larger size.
“I’ve never been someone who fixates on a Size 10. If you do, the danger is you can look like a porky pig.”
Not that there’s much danger of that for Penny. Husband Rod, of course, is well known as an admirer of glamorous blondes.
But ask Penny what sort of fashion look he goes for, and she just laughs.
“He’s not all that fussed, as long as it’s short,” she says. “He’ll tolerate elegant, flowing gowns which I love. But he’s a leg man, always has been, always will be.”
And Penny, who turns 41 in March, sees no reason to hang up her mini skirts just yet.
“There’s that myth that when you get to a certain age, the hemline should be lowered. But I’ve always believed it’s all to do with the figure that carries off the outfit, not the age of the person wearing it.”
