All the times Michelle Bridges' son Axel was her total mini-me

Ever since Michelle Bridges became a mum to her gorgeous son Axel, she's spoiled her followers with pics of the cheeky toddler.
The former Biggest Loser trainer confessed that she sacrificed many things for her career and thought that kids simply weren't going to be on the cards for her.
But in 2015 at 45 year of age, Michelle welcomed a baby boy with her former partner Steve 'The Commando' Willis.
Despite the pair announcing their split in 2020 - and Michelle and Axel officially moving out of the family apartment - they remain committed co-parents to their son.
Michelle says her whole life changed when she gave birth to Axel.
"When Axel came into my world, it took me to a whole new place. There's been many a time when I'll just start talking about Axel and just burst into tears," she confessed to 60 Minutes in 2017.
Fitness guru Michelle introduced her first child in an exclusive interview and photo shoot with The Australian Women's Weekly, and though she said Axel had inherited his dad's calm and placid nature, we reckon she and her son make the ultimate pair.
"I've got this mother instinct that people always talk about," she said at the time.
"It's quite fierce and protective."

In an exclusive interview with Now To Love Michelle spoke about how her beloved son helps motivate her and how he has changed her approach to fitness.
"I'm not in my 20s or 30s anymore… I still want to look and feel my best but my biggest reason for keeping up my fitness and strength is for my son," the fitness expert admited.
"I want to be able to run around with him, pick him up, carry my groceries, get up on a chair and fix something up in the top cupboard. I'm a single parent, I need to be able to do stuff!"
From his cheeky smile to his adventurous streak, Axel may be young but we reckon he is a chip off the old block.
