Nicole Richie has already hired a personal trainer to get her pre-pregnancy figure back.
'The Simple Life' star - who is expecting her first child with fiancé Joel Madden in January - is reportedly determined to shed her baby weight in record time and hates her ever-expanding body.
A source close to Nicole - who sparked rumours of an eating disorder before she fell pregnant because of her tiny frame - said: "Nicole feels huge right now. Her breasts are enormous and she finds it difficult to get comfortable. The change to her body has been drastic and it's been hard for Nicole to accept. She looks in the mirror and doesn't even recognise the person staring back at her."
Nicole has hired celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak to start working with her just two weeks after she gives birth.
However, Joel is said to be furious at her plans as he wants her to concentrate on giving birth to a healthy baby.
The source added: "When Nicole announced she had spoken to Harley Pasternak they were all shocked. Joel asked her to wait until at least the beginning of March, but she's determined to start a gentle workout routine within two weeks of giving birth.
"Joel's concentrating on Nicole having a healthy baby, but all Nicole can talk about is how she can't wait to lose 20lbs."
