Well whoopy bloomin’ do!
Rebecca Loos is back posing in a bikini eight weeks after giving birth and has lost all her baby weight PLUS an extra 5lb.
And aren’t we all just delighted for her, girls?
Er no, I thought, perhaps not.
Just what exactly is Miss Loos trying to prove by her photoshoot for a women’s magazine this week? Let’s have a think, eh. Could it be…
a) Look at me and how gorgeous I am?
b) I’ve got more willpower than all you other women who are still battling to get back into shape by the time their kids leave home?
c) Look at me and how irresistible to men I am? (A version of “a.”)
d) I’m in such good shape my partner would never cheat on me after I’ve had kids.
Oh now, that last one is an interesting thought. Because maybe, just maybe, now she’s a mum herself, a very large penny has finally dropped in Rebecca Loos’ mind about what she did when she got involved with David Beckham, then a dad of two very young kids
Maybe she is starting to realise that when you’
ve got a baby to feed, sick to clear up and a skyscraper pile of ironing to do, all on four hours’ sleep, then perhaps you’re not going to be a sex goddess in the bedroom.
No one could ever accuse Victoria Beckham of letting herself go, but even she must have had times when her boys were very little that she felt tired, run-down and not really up for swinging-from-the-rafters-sex.
And that, of course, was when Miss Loos swept in on Victoria’s husband when he was living far from home.
I’m not one who believes women should take all the blame for affairs. David Beckham himself should have taken a long, hard think about the two little lads, aged just four and one at the time, waiting for him at home when he jumped into bed with another woman. But Rebecca Loos did a terrible thing when she lured away those little boys’ father and another woman’s husband.
I’ve seen the pain all too closely in two young boys’ faces when they learned their dad had cheated on their mum – me.
And I’ve felt the gut-churning pain of betrayal.
I would never, ever wish that pain on Rebecca Loos’ child or on herself.
In fact I wouldn’t wish the agony Victoria Beckham and myself both had to go through on my worst enemy.
I just hope that now, as Rebecca desperately sticks to her low-fat, no-sugar, weighing-herself-daily-diet to keep her figure (and
let’s face it, her man) she realises what she once inflicted on another young mother.
