It's no wonder Victoria Beckham, Miranda Kerr and Natalie Portman have such fantastic arms.
Their secret Babies.
Yes, tiny people who need lugging about all day are a much better way of toning up flabby upper arms and bingo wings than weights and push-ups – especially with the aid of a new baby sling developed in Australia.
The incredible Smiling Sling lets you exercise while bonding with your baby – and is much more fun than going to the gym.
Unlike other baby-carrying slings, the unique Smiling Sling is specially designed with stretchy fabric to allow new mothers and fathers to using their little person as a weight while bonding with the child.
Exercises possible with the sling include resistance training, extension, flexing and movement.
On their website, Smiling Sling says: 'Being a mum is a huge challenge and being a genuinely happy, composed mother is not easy either.
'Getting fit is extremely beneficial to keeping healthy and happy during major changes undergone by new mothers (fathers, caregivers) and their families.

Mothers who have used the sling – which is available online for AU$129.99 (83) – have given positive feedback.
Nadine Schacke said: 'As a working mum, time is very precious, both time to myself and time with the baby. The Smiling Sling is a great way to work out and to spend time with my baby at the same time. We have loads of fun together!'
Tamika O'Neill said: 'I love the smiling sling because it allows me to exercise post pregnancy in the comfort of my own home whilst the baby is safe and close to my chest. This also gave me a closer bond with my baby through physical interaction.”
