Having a baby, nothing to it. Starting a business, scary.

That’s how model Lara Worthington — nee Bingle — sums up one of the most challenging and rewarding years of her life.

After shying away from publicity in recent months following the birth of her son Rocket Zot, the girl from The Shire has made a stunning ­return to the spotlight.

Lara, who is married to Aussie actor Sam Worthington, opened up about her new roles as mother and businesswoman as part of Westfield’s “Today I Am” campaign, her first major brand campaign since Rocket was born in March.

“The most empowering moment of my life to date would be giving birth,” she ­revealed in a short film for the shopping centre giant, shot on the streets and rooftops of New York.

“It is the most beautiful, ­insanely amazing thing in the world.

“Today I am a mother.”

“Today, I’m my own boss, and it’s a little scary. But scary is good,” she said in the film, directed by Gracie Otto.

The Sydney-born model also revealed her thoughts on being an entrepreneur, having launched her own cosmetics and bronzing range, The Base by Lara Bingle.

Lara, 28, is currently in Sydney with her husband, who will star in Mel Gibson’s war epic Hacksaw Ridge, which begins filming in NSW soon.

The pair, who began dating in 2013, have been seen out and about in the city with Rocket in recent days.

Lara is expected to fly home to the US this week but will return to Australia next month for work.

Lara Bingle Worthington has shown a rare glimpse of what happens when she travels with her son Rocket Zot.

The nearly five-month-old has been pictured on a private flight to Paris, sleeping on a leather chair.

“My mornings are so much better now,” Bingle wrote on her Instagram page.

Today, she appears to have landed at the European destination safely after she captioned a green chair: “Mellow day in Paris.”

Bingle and her actor husband Sam Worthington were spotted just days ago strolling through New York with Rocket in a pram.

Wearing a tan skirt and black singlet, Bingle looked upbeat with her man by her side.

Bingle and Worthington welcomed their baby boy in March this year after keeping the pregnancy a secret.

However, Confidential broke news of Bingle’s baby news in July after friends spilt the beans regarding her exciting news.

“Everyone is talking about it,” said a well placed source at the time.

“It’s hard to know if its true given how much stuff has been said about them but the rumour is definitely that Lara is pregnant.”

She publicly declared that she would lay off social media because “everyone knows everything” and “there’s no mystery anymore,” but just nine months later Lara Bingle is back in business.

With a new manager, new BFF and a new look, Bingle 2.0 has emerged.

Just five months after giving birth to her son Rocket Zot, we’ve seen a resurgence on social media from the 28-year-old, who has again started posting plentiful glamorous Instagram photos of herself.

The model, who was yesterday snapped taking a stroll in New York with her husband Sam Worthington and their five-month-old son, even uploaded a pap shot despite once saying she despised the paparazzi, because “I can’t even go to the supermarket without being papped.”

Her new acceptance of the paparazzi comes as she has enlisted the help of a new manager in Miranda Kerr’s right hand woman, Annie Kelly.

Kelly is the latest manager to take on Bingle after a few others, including Priscilla Leighton-Clark, Celebrity PR guru Max Markson, 6 Degrees founder Titus Day, former BFF Hermione Underwood, Tailor Maid Communications duo Sally Brown and Chrissy Biasotto, Founder of Miranda Kerr’s skincare range, Kora, George Moskos and most recently Jess Carrera.

Bingle is in good hands with Kelly, who famously left David Jones to manage Miranda Kerr when DJs split with her in 2013.

She’s also refreshed her friends with a brand new buddy in the form of Australian filmmaker Gracie Otto. The arty Otto and Bingle were snapped filming what is believed to be an ad for Westfield this week.

Bingle loves a best mate — having formerly hung-out with top fashion ed Christine Centenera, make-up artist Max May, events planner Cara Landsman, Seal’s ex Hermione Underwood and artist Vicki-Lee.

Meanwhile, she’s revamped her look too, with a fresh “fashion hairdo” from new stylist Travis Balcke, who is responsible for the ‘Bingle Bob’.

Lara Bingle is back.

It’s been five months since the Aussie model welcomed her first child Rocket Zot with partner Sam Worthington and, after shunning the limelight and dressing down in public while on mum duty, she’s undoubtedly back in business and looking better than ever.

Rocking a pair of $1750 Louis Vuitton boots from the latest collection and a fitted mini dress with sleeves, the 28-year-old was snapped strutting her stuff around New York City this week.

The short, sleeved frock revealed her tiny waist and toned pins, and a freshly chopped Bingle Bob was on show.

Carrying only her phone and a small red purse, the Sydney-born beauty smiled confidently for the cameras, seemingly unfazed by the attention from photographers.

The stylish shots are among the first photos we’ve seen of Lara without her baby boy since giving birth to the couples’ first child back in March.

Earlier in the week, the savvy businesswoman was busy shooting for a new campaign in a Soho studio with Australian actress and director Gracie Otto.

It’s not known exactly what Lara and Otto, 28, who is the sister of actress Miranda Otto, are collaborating on just yet but it’s sure good to see Mrs Worthington back in action.

Lara Bingle Worthington has shown off her post baby belly after an 18 kilometre workout at the gym.

The 28-year-old gave birth to her first child Rocket Zot just three months ago and has wasted no time getting her tone figure back.

Bingle, who is married to actor Sam Worthington, has kept a low profile since welcoming her baby boy.

Bingle is holidaying in Canada, Vancouver as a new family of three. But despite this, Bingle hasn’t dropped the ball on her strict exercise routine.

“18kms,” she simply wrote on her social media account.

Her fans were quick to comment on her slim body.

“Wish I could achieve this gym aesthetic,” one person wrote.

Another said: “Postpartum goals.”
