Meet Super Mum Kelly Downey.

We're not sure whether she's more a Super Mum or a Super Human...she got back to modelling four months post partum!

She's a huge fan of favourite Australian designers Zimmerman, Lover and Scanlan and Theodore, and can't wait till her little one Claudia is old enough so she can dress her in the children's collections.

She describes herself as a strong but soft mother, who can't get enough of her bub ❤️

You’re Mum to?

Claudia Winter Schmidt.


Is motherhood what you envisioned it to be? What has it taught you most?

I didn’t really have any preconceived ideas of what motherhood would be like. I just thought I’d go with the flow. Each day the bond and love I have for my daughter grows and intensifies and I just love those special moments together that I never want to end and I know I will treasure forever. To be honest motherhood has probably been more challenging than I imagined. I guess more than ever it is important to take each day as it comes, to know that there will be easy days and challenging day and as my mother always tells me that it will get easier! I have so much more appreciation for my own mother and for all other mums out there, especially single mothers.

What has been the most precious moment thus far?

Hearing and seeing my daughter laugh wholeheartedly, it is the BEST sound in the world.


You are one of Australia’s top models, pre-pregnancy, during and now just four months postpartum. What has been your most memorable job?

I’ve been really lucky to have booked shoots working with the most respected and talented people in the business and go on some to some incredible locations, but my favourite jobs have been when I’ve made lifelong friends at work☺

  What are your favourite fashion labels? And for Claudia too?

I just love so many Australian designers like Zimmermann and I can’t wait until Claudia is a little older and I can dress her in their children’s collection. I also adore Lover and Scanlan & Theodore and Viktoria + Woods is a staple in my wardrobe. For Claudia I mostly dress her in Purebaby onesies. They are so cute, soft and easy. I also find Purebaby fit Claudia the best. 


You have four free hours (baby free). What do you do?

Claudia spends time one-on-one with her Daddy while I go to a Post-Natal Pilates class at my physio and then go shopping or take my dog Chloe for a walk. It’s nice to have some fur baby time!

 Brad Pitt or George Clooney?



What is your perfume?

I have so many perfumes but my favourites at the moment are Le Labo Santal 33 and Tom Ford Orchid Soleil – one I prefer for cooler days the other for sunny days.


Sugar to you is?  

My vice! It keeps me going on the those days I am so exhausted though.

If you could go back to a moment in time, what would it be?

To when my father was still alive. I wish Dad could have met my husband and Claudia.


How do you take your coffee?

I breast feed Claudia and we discovered she has a dairy intolerance after I ate a lot of ice cream around my birthday so I’ve switched my coffee to an Almond Milk or Soy Milk Latte.


Describe yourself as a mum in three words?

Strong, soft and obsessed.


With love,

My Super Nanny.
