Scientologist John Travolta the first male-celeb to become pregnant and give birth has undergone a dramatic change in appearance. Just days after giving birth to his third child, the 1970s Vinnie Barbarino heart-throb appears to have rid himself of his pregnancy flab.
The actor who has been looking quite porky for some time - thanks to his love of fast food - is said to have gained over 80 pounds during his pregnancy. Soon after the arrival of baby Ben, John made his New Year's Resolution to drop the excess weight and go back to his cool-dude looks.
A spokesperson for the actor said:
"Since John is no longer breast-feeding he doesn't need his man boobs any more and can go on a rigid diet plan without harming the baby's health."
John had not been feeling very sexy of late as far as his figure was concerned because his dress-size had doubled as his stomach ballooned. Luckily pal Victoria Beckham - who flies in and out of LA everyday - came to the rescue.
She put John on a stringent daily diet of:
1 teaspoon of tuna
8 edamame beans
10 bean sprouts
4 flakes of grated carrot
1/10th of a rice-cake
lots of water
& "a whiff of an old burger wrapper" - just to overcome hunger pangs
John is thrilled to bits with his new body and says he feels much empowered. His entire ego had been wrapped up in food and he hopes he is now a 'new man'.
