The glamorous footballer's wife who caused a storm last year by posting a 'selfie' of her washboard stomach just four days after giving birth has done it again.
"My shape is getting better and better after birth," boasted Caroline Berg Eriksen, who blogs under the name "Fotballfrue" (Footballer's Wife), as she posted a post-gym picture displaying her rippling stomach muscles on Instagram. 
"Yes, of course I'm proud!" she wrote on her blog, defending her position to post yet another picture. 
When Eriksen posted her first post-birth photo at the end of November, she was sharply criticised by Norwegian bloggers, with Suzanne Aabel attacking her in Dagbladet newspaper. 
"In my eyes, this picture is wildly provocative," Aabel wrote. "Not just because I'm the chubby girl who's envious of her petite figure, but because I began to despise my own body when I was about twelve."
Eriksen is married to Lars-Kristian Eriksen, who plays for the Odds Ballklubb, a team in Norway's Premier League based in Skien.
