This model turned actress (she was a License to Kill Bond girl and assistant DA on Law & Order) may be on hiatus, but she's hardly out of the spotlight, since her longtime partner--and the father of her baby boy, Homer James Jigme--is Richard Gere.
exercise: Three times a week, an hour of Pilates with N.Y.C. instructor Marina Gregory and an hourlong workout with personal trainer Paul Frediani of Equinox gyms. Sessions with Frediani entail noncontact boxing, conditioning with a fitness ball to improve core muscle strength, and lifting weights to build and tone muscle.
diet: "Throughout the pregnancy, if I wanted something sugary I'd have fruit salad," she says.
secret: Boxing is a major calorie burner--in a one-hour session, you could burn 900 calories. Also, "it targets the transverse abdominal muscle, the biggest problem spot for any woman who has ever had children," Frediani says. "Strengthening this muscle gives you that hourglass figure."
