We all know modeling is a ridiculously competitive industry, but Rimmel model Sophie Ellis-Bextor took her commitment to her job to a whole new level. Just nine days after giving birth to her premature son via C-section, Sophie got back to work.

Now, to be fair, it's not like she was modeling lingerie or anything -- she was at the studio with her husband, Richard Jones, to help write a single for his band, The Feeling. The band's lead singer said, "She's recovered from the operation and looks great."

We guess it's not just the average Joe who is happy to have a job right now, and we're glad that Sophie felt well enough so soon after having her baby to get to work. However, we're really hoping this doesn't set the bar for everyone else. Shoot, we've had paper cuts that have bothered us for more than nine days, and definitely don't think we'd bounce back from a baby that fast!
