She’s never claimed to be a fan of fitness, and now Pippa O’ Connor has revealed that she hasn’t been to the gym since tying the knot to tv presenter Brian Ormond in 2011. Instead, the model and blogger says running after her toddler son Ollie keeps her in perfect shape.
The Kildare native admitted that taking care of her two-year-old certainly keeps her on her toes. Writing in today’s Celebrity Diary with The Herald, she said: “I’m lucky that I don’t have to watch my weight at all – I haven’t been in the gym since before I got married, I did yoga when I was pregnant and that’s about it. I’d love to be a bit fitter, but I just don’t think I’m that kind of person – although running around after my son Ollie certainly keeps me on my toes.”
Meanwhile, the fashionista recently filmed an episode of The Restaurant and revealed the experience was more demanding than she expected.
“Although I really enjoyed it, it was much harder than I thought it would be,” she said. “Even just being in a professional kitchen was quite scary to be honest – the chefs aren’t performing for the cameras, it’s a real working restaurant.
“I love food but, to be honest, I prefer eating it than cooking,” she wrote.
“While I’m not too bad in the kitchen, I grew up with amazing chefs around me and I wish I appreciated it more at the time and had learnt a few more things,” she added.
