Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model-turned-actress Molly Sims, 41, is pregnant with her second child with husband, film producer Scott Stuber. She posted a photo of her growing family vacationing in the Bahamas, on Instagram.
When Sims was pregnant in 2012 with her son Brooks, she gained 72 pounds. She had a difficult time losing the weight even with a rigorous exercise regimen. It turned out Sims had postpartum thyroiditis, an inflammation of the thyroid gland. She took medication and felt much better. The Mayo Clinic reports: it’s believed that women who develop postpartum thyroiditis likely have an underlying autoimmune thyroid condition that flares after childbirth due to fluctuations in immune function. Sims may be in for another big gain.
