How did she do it?! You can’t deny the fact that OutDaughtered's Danielle Busby looks incredible after having six children. While many fans have speculated that Danielle, 33, has had plastic surgery to get her pre-baby body back, the TLC personality says that it was simply a new approach to food and fitness that helped her lose the pregnancy pounds.
Last summer, Danielle wrote a blog post for TLC explaining the changes she had to make in her diet after giving birth to quintuplets — Ava Lane, Olivia Marie, Hazel Grace, Riley Paige, and Parker Kate — in April 2015.
“During my quintuplet pregnancy, I was 'doing what I have to for the babies.’ That meant going on a 4,500-calorie diet a day and forgetting everything I learned about eating clean and healthy foods,” she shared at the time. “I had to literally eat my dessert before I could eat the salad on my plate. Though that idea sounds good in theory, in practice, it was exhausting.”
Now, Danielle — who also shares six-year-old daughter Blayke Louise with husband Adam — watches her calorie count and works out at home since her hectic schedule doesn’t allow too much time for the gym.
“There are days I am actually able to get away and go to the gym, but as a mom-of-six, it doesn't happen too often, and I try my best to do workouts at home,” she wrote. “I've customized my routine to fit in with my daily schedule. To build strength, I do sit-ups and push-ups every day. And forget about the Stairmaster — I utilize our staircase for daily workouts too, on top of the "workout" I get bringing five babies up and down the stairs all day.”
Danielle continued, “Most of my days involve the babies, so almost every day, I break out the six seater stroller and go for a walk/jog. I load up the quints and push about 200 pounds around the neighborhood while Blayke rides her bike — now that's a workout for ya!!”
When she gets a chance to break a sweat away from her family, the reality star loves to hit up a group fitness class. Most recently, she raved over a class she took at Rush Cycle, the new spinning boutique she opened with Adam in Houston.
“The studio @rushcycle_leaguecity was AWESOME tonight!” she captioned a pic of herself and twin sisters Ashley and Crystal after an invigorating ride. “Nothing like sweating it out on a bike with your husband, sisters, Houston6 fam, Angie and our Rush fam to a Timberlake vs Bieber playlist! ???”
