‘I did have a contract that stated that I had to be back to my pre-pregnancy shape’: Megan Gale reveals she was given just six months to lose all of her baby weight after giving birth in 2014

Megan Gale has revealed she was given just six months to lose weight after welcoming her son River in 2014.

Speaking to podcast Tales From the Fourth Trimester on Sunday, the 43-year-old supermodel revealed an unnamed company she was working for at the time stipulated she return to her pre-baby body.

‘I did have a contract that was in play that stated that I had to be back to my pre-pregnancy shape,’ she said, adding they gave her six months off to achieve this.

Although she went along with it at the time, she said the conditions of her contract angered her, and she was unable to achieve her ‘pre-pregnancy shape’.

‘I wasn’t the same weight, but to me I kind of thought, ‘You know what? If you are going to tear up my contract because I am not… 

‘I will make sure everyone knows about it and we will see how that goes, because I knew that would be absolutely frowned upon and I knew women everywhere would be in an uproar,’ she continued.

Megan called the clause ‘ludicrous’ and said she was willing to go public if the company pushed her on it.

‘I decided not to pick my battle at the time, but I thought if… people say, ‘Why aren’t you with such and such client anymore?’ I would say, ‘Well, because they sacked me because of this,” she added.

The model welcomed her second child, daughter Rosie, in September 2017, with her partner of eight years, footballer Shaun Hampson, 31.

In February 2015, she spoke to Daily Mail Australia about regaining her post-baby body, nine months after giving birth to River.

‘I don’t feel like I’m back to the way I was,’ she told Daily Mail at the time.

She said she was more concerned with taking care of River than losing any weight she gained during her pregnancy.  

‘To be honest, I haven’t really had much time to focus on it. My priority has been more about looking after him,’ she added.
