At 12 weeks postpartum, Emily DiDonato is adjusting to her new routine as a family of four. She and her husband, Kyle Peterson, are the proud parents to a daughter named Teddy, whom they welcomed in November 2021, and newborn baby boy Oliver, who was born in April.

The SI Swimsuit model and skincare entrepreneur shared her healthy morning routine with her TikTok followers earlier this week while clarifying that “every single morning does not look like this.”

After waking up, DiDonato brushed her teeth and made her bed. “I did some reading, I did some journaling, got immediately into my workout clothes,” she shared. “If I don’t get in them right away, then I don’t end up working out.”

After waking up her daughter, DiDonato did a treadmill workout at home before her trainer came over. “[I’m] just trying to get back in shape and feel good postpartum,” she explained. “It takes time, but patience is good, not easy.”

Her skincare routine was next, then DiDonato headed into her home office to start her work day. The six-time SI Swimsuit star’s simplified morning skincare routine is detailed here, using products from her own line, Covey.
