Dido struggles to lose baby weight
The 41-year-old singer gave birth to Stanley – her first child with husband Rohan Gavin – in July 2011 and admits she still hasn’t lost the pounds she gained during her pregnancy, but she isn’t too worried as her priorities have changed.
She said: ‘I still haven’t quite managed [to lose the weight]. It has definitely been a bit of a struggle because you need to eat to have energy and I ate for Britain. I was so hungry the whole time.
‘That whole ‘weight drops off you when you’re breast feeding’ thing is a complete myth. I haven’t worried about it so much because your attitude shifts to thinking about how you can be the best mum.’
During her pregnancy, Dido worked on her new album ‘Girl Who Got Away’ and loved being in the studio and feeling Stanley move as she sang.
She told Youthgossip.com : ‘Usually I’m in the vocal booth in the studio singing on my own.
‘What was nice as having this little mate, kicking away, dancing – or struggling to get out, I’m not sure which.
‘I just loved having him there. I took a year out after he was born and finished the album at the end of last year.’
