Middleton gave birth to her second child, Elke Bay Plowman, last Thursday before undergoing a lumpectomy to remove a tumour in her breast. "The good news is that the worst is behind us," said her designer partner, Sarah-Jane Clarke. The Aussie designers said they were unaware of Middleton's condition when they recently showed their latest collection at New York Fashion Week, which Middleton opted to sit out of. "From now on it's going to be good and she's going to get lots of rest and is looking forward to being her happy, healthy self again," Clarke told reporters. Middleton plans to take the next few months away from the fashion world to concentrate on motherhood. [Via]
