Hoarding "pregnancy fat" seems to be a thing of past with new mothers waiting only three months — or getting clearance from their doctors — to hit the gym.

Here are some of the yummy mommies that South Africa has fallen in love with: 

Singer Tamara Dey has recently given birth to her baby girl. She recently performed at 24th South African Music Awards and she looked fabulous for a new mom.  

South African has watched TV presenter Pabi Moloi grow and transform from her KTV days, but no transformation was greater than her fitness journey. It almost looks like it two completely different people.

South African choreographer and dancer Nkateko Maswanganye, better known as Takkies, gave birth to a little baby girl and when her baby was three months old, she went back to the gym. Look at her progress thus far.  

I recently had my bundle of joy @sanadinwiddy and the challenging thing has been getting my body back, especially being a breast feeding mom. I’ve been enjoying the journey and I'm taking it one dance move at a time. Ive started an ab challenge on my YouTube page that you can do with or without your little one.
