Michelle Bridges introduces her new baby boy, Axel, for the first time.

In an exclusive interview and photo shoot in the February issue of The Australian Women’s Weekly, Michelle has shared the first pictures of her little man, Axel.

The fitness entrepreneur describes how her son has turned her world upside down and is “the best thing I’ve ever done”.

“I’ve got this mother instinct that people always talk about,” the proud, sleep-deprived new mum says. “It’s quite fierce and protective.”

  • The relationship didnt last but she has a beautiful child to hold.


  • Congrats – lovely photo of mum and bub.


  • All the very best to the family.


  • Cute baby. I don’t recommend jogging that soon either.


  • Sure he is cute but NO cuter than any other bub.

    • I agree – all little bubs are cute and precious.


  • that is a great photo and michelle looks really radiant. axel is a cool name


  • Axel is a cutey but then most children that age are. Michelle knows her own body and no ones else should interfere.


  • Such a lovely photo.


  • Beautiful baby (but aren’t all kids cute ?) ! What works for Michelle may not work for other women, be careful with the post-natal exercises girls !


  • Beautiful baby. As for jogging 3 weeks after giving birth – this may work for Michelle but it isn’t the best thing for lots of other Mums.


  • I think Michelle Bridges is such a graceful woman, she conducts herself so well and is capable of so much! I’m so happy for her, she cops a lot of flack at times and always deals with it with class.


  • Lovely cover photo. I don’t have a problem with Michelle’s post-baby exercise routine for her body, however she definitely shouldn’t be advising others. She’s a PT, not a GP or a DR.


  • cute baby congrats thanks for sharing


  • I have been waiting to see pictures of him… very cute by the looks of it…
    I don’t agree with Michelle’s aggressive Perinatal and Postnatal exercise regimes, I personally think they are a bit extreme. However I respect her decision to look after her body the way she chooses to. It is not my style and I do think there are health risks going to hard to soon.


  • Beautiful photos – good luck with the rest of your lives.
