Brie Benfell, 33, wears many hats — she’s a model, actress, singer, entrepreneur and about a year ago, added the role of a mum to her repertoire. She and her husband Matt Benfell, who’s a physical trainer, welcomed little Theadora in June last year.
Apart from being a co-founder of Thrive Fitness together with Matt, she’s recently also set up The Anjea Way, a platform that offers programmes for pregnant women based on the trimesters they’re in. Each programme offers health, nutritional and wellness guides from experts such as a pre- and postnatal fitness coach, women’s health physiotherapist, prenatal nutritionist and a midwife.
The Weekly got the multi-hyphenate to shed light on what she didn’t expect about motherhood, the toughest part about having a baby during the pandemic, working out and addressing insecurity as a new mum.
