Niki Taylor and Burney Lamar welcome baby boy
Jake and Hunter are the product of Taylor's brief marriage to Miami Hooters linebacker Matt Martinez. "As long as I can remember, I wanted a big family. Having been so young when I started modeling, I found that by the age of 18 I was seriously thinking about babies all the time," Taylor wrote on her pregnancy blog, admitting that now that Jake and Hunter are older, they're helpful with their younger siblings.
Taylor, who gained 75 lbs in her first pregnancy and 60 lbs in her second, was more conscious of her bodythis time around. "When you're 5'11â³ and you realize that your respiratory system sounds like an overweight pug breathing in your ear, it's time to watch the numbers!" she wrote. "I have never shied away from the challenges of taking the weight off though; I actually enjoy that part. I've learned that about myself over the years -- I like to create shock values every now and then."
