She's 36, Waist 23, Mother of 13 & Still a size Zero!

London: Celebrity mothers are often praised for regaining their svelte figures soon after giving birth. Liz Hurley, Victoria Beckham and Geri Halliwell doubtless have an army of personal trainers and dieticians to help them. But Joanne Watson had no assistance getting back to a size zero — despite giving birth 13 times.

The 36-year-old grandmother says there is no secret to retaining her remarkable figure -although it may have something to do with the work involved in looking after her enormous family. She and husband John, a 42-year-old lorry driver, feed and look after 11 of their children at their four-bedroom home in Guernsey.

And now they are expecting again. Mrs Watson, who is 5ft 2in tall, has a 23in waist and weighs just 7st 3lb, has always been petite.

Before the birth of her first child, she was a size six. And miraculously she was back in her old jeans days after giving birth. Now she is even smaller at a size four — the controversial size zero in the US My friends would ask me what the secret was but I don’t have one. “It’s not something I boast about — it’s always just happened.

I guess I’m just naturally slim. And of course there is a lot of running around when you have a family as big as ours, so that probably burns off a few calories too.” She added: “I sometimes get into trouble by borrowing stuff from my daughters’ wardrobes.”
