Sometimes new moms shy away from flaunting their figures, but not this TLC star. Paola and her husband, Russ Mayfield, welcomed their pride and joy, Axel Mayfield, on January 1, 2019, making the new year even more special for the lovebirds.
“While I was hearing the fireworks and people telling me, ‘Happy New Year,’ I was just focused on meeting my baby, it wasn’t easy but it was totally worth it,” the brunette beauty shared in a statement after his highly anticipated arrival. “My little miracle is so beautiful and calm. I feel so blessed and I can’t believe I am a mom now! I’m ready to start this new adventure and to be the best mom for baby Axel.”
In the months following her reality TV debut, the Colombia native announced her new career path and confirmed it was going to be fitness-related. She passed her personal training exam after attending the Body Design University program in Atlanta, and ultimately obtained her goal of becoming a fitness model and certified personal trainer.
These days, she’s also working as a nutrition coach. “Soon you will see me again [on TV], but eventually I will be doing something outside of the franchise!” she shared about her future plans in an October update, hinting at her return to the small screen.
“No more babies for now,” the wellness guru also told fans who were curious about the couple’s thoughts on expanding their brood. “I have to work and my family depends on me,” she added.
Paola loves to document her rigorous workouts online so her Instagram followers can see her weight loss techniques, and her hubby even joins in from time to time to break a sweat with his longtime love. “You know what they say about couples that workout together,” she captioned a clip of them exercising on November 9.
