Lara Stone - Lara Stone: Pregnancy affected my career

Lara Stone was turned away from a modelling job because she'd gained too much weight during her pregnancy.

The model - who had a son, Alfred, with her husband David Walliams last May - was devastated when she was refused work during her first trimester and says the experience of being unemployed left her feeling ''vulnerable''.

Talking to the Evening Standard, she said: ''I was really upset at the time. I hadn't yet had my three-month scan and I felt really vulnerable about everything. I no longer had a job. That was it - I had to just stop everything that I knew; the way my life was.''

Lara found it difficult to come to terms with her post-pregnancy body and couldn't fit into most of her clothes.

She added: ''Once the baby was out I was like, 'What the hell is going on?' My arms don't fit into my sweaters. I couldn't get my jeans over my knees. I couldn't find a bra that fitted me. I had body dysmorphia but the wrong way round.''

She got help from personal trainer James Duigan and used diet delivery service Detox Kitchen to help her shift her baby weight and has since had meetings about future jobs.

The blonde beauty explained: ''I've had a few meetings because when they hear pregnancy they freak out a bit, so they need to see if I fit in their clothes.''
