Genetically blessed Hollywood couple David Charvet, 35 and Brooke Burke, 36, joined friends and family at the Treehouse Social Club in Beverly Hills. The occasion? A shower for their second baby together, due mid-March. Brooke already has three beautiful girls, Neriah, 7, and Sierra Sky, 5 (her daughters with ex-husband, plastic surgeon Garth Fisher, from whom she split in 2005), and Heaven Rain, 1, her first child with fiancé David.
Just before the baby shower, the couple announced they were expecting a boy – and that called for Blue Hypnotiq cocktails and a cupcake tower topped with a pair of Stride Rite shoes (who sponsored the fete). Brooke looked knock-out gorgeous in a blue silk blouson and fitted jeans.
Glancing at her shower photos, we kept wondering how she manages to look so amazing, having been pregnant four times. She recently shared her favorite fitness secret: Pilates, before, during and after pregnancy. “I know a lot of women are a little afraid to work their abs, or are afraid of core work, but I think it supports your back and I think it helps for an easier delivery and it makes us feel good,” Brooke told Entertainment Tonight.
Brooke gained 30 pounds during her last pregnancy, but she was able to shed it all, thanks, she says, to a consistent fitness routine. “The more fit you are during your pregnancy, the quicker you’re going to bounce back,” she says. “I probably started up two weeks after delivery and I felt I could handle that.”
Brooke does have one Body After Baby secret that doesn’t involve sport shoes and a whole lot of sweat: Taut, a post-partum belly in a compression wrap. She swears that the wrap helped her get back to her pre-pregnancy size. Sounds like a small miracle to us!
