A Russian model has caused shock among her followers after flaunting her insanely toned post-baby tum.

Any woman who has had a baby knows that it usually changes your body forever.

Your hips may be wider or your stomach won't give up that last little bit of baby weight – it's all totally normal and definitely OK!

But, not for this gorgeous model who refused to gain weight after giving birth.

Yulia Pugacheva, 29, posted a number of controversial photos on her Instagram account, @yulia.pugacheva.

Her 217,000 followers were amazed at how quickly Yulia’s body had returned to her normal slim stature.

The model gave brith just six months ago and began taking snaps almost immediately.

She admits that people have questioned whether they are real or not.

Yulia said: “They ask me and are suspicious asking if my photos were really taken after delivery.”

However, the model claims she has always been very fit and in shape.

As a child she competed in tennis tournaments and professional competitions until she was 17.

Only after suffering a serious leg injury did she quit her tennis career and decide to train lightly at home.

The stunning woman also uses her diet to control her shape.

Yulia said: “I prefer my body as it is now.

“When I played tennis, I weighed 9kg more. It was too much muscle.”

Today, she says that to maintain her figure she follows a very healthy diet and does push ups and sit ups at the gym every day.

Yulia added: “Right after the normal delivery, I waited just a week to start getting heavy at the gym.

“So my body is in shape now.

“I didn't accept gaining weight.

“I divided my time between my baby and the gym.”
