‘I was always trying to get skinny in my 20s’: Lara Bingle reveals how having children changed her views on body image and why she would ‘happily have more’ with Sam Worthington
She has one of the most enviable physiques in the business, but Lara Worthington (nee Bingle) admits she struggled with body confidence in her younger years.
However, the model, now 33, has revealed that becoming a mother completely changed that.
In an interview with Marie Claire, the Aussie beauty explained that having her three children taught her to ‘be happy’ in her body.

‘Before I had kids, I was always trying to get skinny or be a certain weight,’ she told the publication.
‘My mind was so focused on that and then the moment I just let myself be happy in my body and had kids it really changed for me. I feel like my whole early 20s were just so centred on body issues.’
Lara, who is married to Avatar star Sam Worthington, is mum to Rocket, four, Racer, three, and a newborn, whose name is yet to be revealed.

The doting mum added that she thinks her body was ‘meant to have kids’ and she would ‘happily’ have more in the future.
‘It’s like my body was meant to have kids, and maybe that’s why I’ve had so many and would happily have more,’ she said.
Lara and Sam welcomed their most recent addition, a baby boy, early last year.

The notoriously private couple are yet to reveal the baby’s name and exactly when their son was born.
Lara had confirmed her pregnancy in November 2019, telling Vogue Australia: ‘I’m having a boy, early next year. It’s my third boy and we’re all very excited and very happy.
‘I think any addition brings joy and happiness to the family, but more so when you can share it with the other boys. It’s such a boy’s club in my house!’
Lara and Sam began dating in 2013 and married in secret a year later.
