How is this even possible?

I don't want to make it sound like we are totally obsessed with celebrity's post-baby bodies, but we kind of are. Perhaps it has something to do with our own post-baby bodies, but whatever. How is it possible for Jessica Alba to look this good less than four months after giving birth? And, she's not hiding anything--it's all out there. I just don't understand it.

As I was trying to figure out the answer to the above question, I clicked into a helpful slideshow that re-visited Alba's baby bump days and I stumbled across two equally confounding pictures. The image below was supposedly taken on February 13th.

And this last picture was taken on February 24th. She sure did pop in 11 days. Possible, but still a little suspect.

Now I'm not trying to accuse Jessica of anything crazy like not actually having the baby, I'm just saying she looks remarkably good after giving birth a few months ago. Thanks to Jessica, Nicole, J.Lo, Halle, and the list goes on, the post-baby body bar has been set ridiculously high for celebrities. I wonder if they ever wish they could be compared to someone a little bit more average. If so, they can always check out BabyCenter's birthboards where moms have so generously uploaded pictures of their own, usually average, post-baby bellies.
