How the model and new mom slows down and stays healthy

BE­FORE HER PREG­NANCY, the su­per­model was work­ing out with a trainer four times a week. Now Iman, who signed her first mod­el­ing con­tract at 13, is slow­ing down with pre­na­tal yoga and med­i­ta­tion. “Be­ing preg­nant is work all on its own,” she says. “I just try to do some­thing ac­tive ev­ery day.” Iman has also reeval­u­ated her diet: “I’m eat­ing health­ier to­day than I ever have in my whole life. In­stead of eat­ing junk, I fo­cus on find­ing healthy foods that taste good and give me en­ergy,” she says. “I feel so much less slug­gish now that I can’t imag­ine go­ing back to eat­ing any other way.”

I’m very sen­si­tive to scent, so I keep my skin care sim­ple,” says Iman, who likes hy­drat­ing cleansers such as Pond’s. “It’s all about mois­tur­iz­ing.” Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser, $7/6.1 oz.; at drug­stores. Der­ma­log­ica Ac­tive Moist, $63; der­ma­log­ica.com.

EAT FOR EN­ERGY “I used to grab fries or a choco­late shake on set, but now I’ll eat nuts or a nu­tri­tion bar,” says Iman. Her lat­est crav­ing? “Açaï bowls. They taste just as good as ice cream to me!”

On the foot­ball field with hus­band Ster­ling Shepard STRONGER TO­GETHER When it comes to fit­ness, Iman and her hus­band, New York Giants wide re­ceiver Ster­ling Shepard, keep each other mo­ti­vated. “Lately he’s been train­ing in L.A., so I walk up and down the [sta­dium] stairs while he’s prac­tic­ing.”

ZEN OUT Tak­ing pre­na­tal yoga classes at Love Child stu­dios in N.Y.C. has been ben­e­fi­cial for “mind, body, and soul,” says Iman, who plans to keep up the prac­tice. “They even have classes you and your baby can do to­gether.”

TAKE CARE “My back and feet have been hurt­ing dur­ing my preg­nancy, but I’ve been get­ting weekly mas­sages at The Mon­tage in Los An­ge­les,” says Iman.
