Sonia Kruger is known for her youthful energy and sensational physique.
But in her column for Stellar, she admitted that like the rest of us, she too was a victim of the Covid kilogram build-up during the lockdown.
The 56-year-old jokingly asked for a revival of the past two years for everyone, especially those who were dealing with distance learning for their children and having their relationships tested.
‘It was happening right in front of my eyes’: Sonia Kruger (pictured) admitted she added pounds of Covid during lockdown in her ‘muffin region’
She humorously referred to the addictive relationship people have developed with their refrigerators and unnecessary eating habits when having home orders.
The professional ballroom dancer admitted, “It was also happening right in front of my eyes, in the muffin region.”
The mother-of-one, who is now on a mission to change those habits, said she couldn’t help but indulge in peanut butter sandwiches.
“Now scales have become allies of the virus and are spreading untruths about our weight faster than peanut butter on a fresh crispy bun,” she said.
While she may have indulged in treats during the lockdown, it’s likely that Sonia quickly shed those extra pounds as she is known to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.

Nowadays, Sonia has stated that she cannot live without salmon, nuts, broccoli, cherries and hot chips as an occasional treat because she is “only human”.
