Skinny Calista Struggles With Weight Of Motherhood

Super skinny CALISTA FLOCKHART is sagging under the weight of motherhood - because she isn't strong enough to carry her baby.

The ALLY McBEAL actress, who has been fighting eating disorder rumours since her appearance at the 1999 EMMY AWARDS weighing only six and a half stones (95 pounds), struggled with her adopted five- month-old son LIAM on the way back from a recent trip to the beach in Malibu.

Calista, 36, who wore a grey hooded sweatshirt to match the baby's, is raising Liam alone - and the strain of playing mother and career woman seems to be taking its toll. (AW/WNTMA/KW)
