Jenna Dewan-Tatum looks amazing just 7 months after giving birth to her daughter Everly. So, how did the actress and dancer snap back into shape so quickly? The new mom revealed her secrets in Ocean Drive magazine.
"I danced for 22 years of my life, hardcore, every day, seven hours a day," the 33-year-old said. "I'm lucky that [my body] likes to snap back to that shape as long as I put a little effort into it, but I'm really active. I work with a trainer named Jennifer Johnson in LA. She's a dancer as well, and she does this amazing workout that’s part cardio, part strength training, part Pilates-based."
Jenna, who gave birth in London while husband Channing Tatum was there filming a movie, says that hiking around the English capital also helped her get fit after her daughter's birth. She also got creative during the long periods spent at home with her newborn.
"When Everly was born, I was literally rocking her probably 10 times a day for 45 minutes, and I turned it into a workout, doing squats and lunges around the house," she adds.
However, there was one key factor – Jenna refused to let herself stress out about her weight or her body. In fact, she admits that her husband found the new post-baby curves sexy. "In the past, if my jeans weren’t fitting right, I’d work out," the Witches of East End star told Self magazine. "Now, if they’re not fitting right, I’m like ‘Oh, well! I’ll get to the gym soon.'"
