Roxy Horner in Bathing Suit Celebrates "7 Months of Growing You"
British model Roxy Horner is 7 months pregnant and enjoying a gorgeous babymoon in Mykonos, Greece. The 32-year-old girlfriend of comedian Jack Whitehall shared pictures of her luxurious vacation, including ones of her posing in a silver bikini against a background of blue skies and palm trees. "7 months of growing you🤰🏼," she captioned the post. "Auntie can't wait 🥰," commented her sister Riana Horner. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Horner stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.
Spending Time Outdoors
Spending time outdoors benefits Horner both physically and mentally. "I find that getting out to a park, the woods or a beach really helps me when I'm having days when I'm not feeling my best mentally or physically," she says. "I've definitely been outdoors and taking in my surroundings a lot more since I've been pregnant but I've always needed that time for my mental wellbeing, having a dog also forces me to get outside even on days when I don't feel like it."
Living with Diabetes
Horner was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2021 and has learned to live with the condition. "Aside from the daily injection and checking my glucose levels, I have tried to do everything that I used to do before I was diagnosed, like traveling and going to work events," she says. "I never want diabetes to stop me from doing anything I've ever wanted. I knew straight away that I wasn't going to let diabetes take over my life."
Green Tea Lover
Horner's favorite drink is green tea, which is high in polyphenols. "Polyphenols are the chemicals in the tea plant that protect it from disease and bacterial invasion," says M. Elizabeth Swenor, D.O., medical director of lifestyle, integrative and functional medicine at Henry Ford Health. "When we drink the tea, those chemicals work the same way in us, feeding the healthy bacteria in our gut and starving the unhealthy bacteria that's associated with chronic diseases."
Swimming and Snorkeling
Horner loves swimming and snorkeling in the ocean. "There's a relaxing, meditative side to swimming," says Harvard Health. "It can come with letting your mind drift as, bathed by soothing water, you focus on your breathing and your movements. This stress-busting aspect could contribute to the cardiovascular benefits of swimming."
Honest About Pregnancy
Horner might look perfect in pictures, but she admits pregnancy has not been easy. "I've been quite envious of women who have these amazingly easy pregnancies where they feel great all the time as that's definitely not been me – I'm still waiting for that pregnancy glow up when I wake up feeling fabulous!" she says. "I had an older woman recently say to me 'oh I loved being pregnant, I would do it all over again' and whilst I love those magical moments where I can feel my baby move I've not loved throwing up all the time."
