Model Irma Mali isn't letting her pregnancy keep her from her love of exercise, revealing that she sometimes forgets she is even pregnant.

The 30-year-old, who is seven months pregnant with her second child, recently shared a photo of her six pack on Instagram. She has largely stuck to her healthy diet and exercise regime, but adjusted some routines because of her pregnancy. "I haven't changed my lifestyle since I got pregnant," she said.

"I'm training every day if I can and I'd only take exercises out if they're too dangerous for the baby.

"I always listen to my body, and if I'm too tired I just do less.

"Sometimes I could even forget that I'm pregnant until the baby starts to kick and reminds me he is there."

Mali, who has been dating firefighter boyfriend Barry Maguire for more than two years, moved to Ireland from Lithuania in the early 2000s and has a 13-year-old daughter, Nikoleta, although she says she can't remember much about her first pregnancy.

"It's very hard to compare to the last pregnancy as it was so long ago," she said.

"I haven't had any morning sickness. Only some days I could be more tired and have to lie down for 30 minutes. I think it's a lot to do with having a healthy diet and keeping active, so it's easier for the body to accept the pregnancy. Our bodies are always changing no matter what you do. The baby is growing and I'm enjoying every moment of it.

"It's not stopping me from anything I was doing or want to do - all I have to do is get a bigger pair of trousers."

Mali dated The Script frontman Danny O'Donoghue for four years before they split in 2013.
