How Hollywood mums shed the pounds

Lost 15kg in 7 weeks

Jenna Dewan-Tatum

Just four months after having her first baby with hunky actor Channing Tatum, 33, US actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum, 32, appears on the November cover of Self magazine in a midriffbaring top and shorts.

According to People magazine, the photos were shot two months after she gave birth to daughter Everly.

Dewan-Tatum reportedly lost 15kg in seven weeks through a hip-hop-based workout.

She said Tatum has been "super supportive" of her post-pregnancy curves. "Chan loves my new (curvier) figure. There's no complaints on his side, for sure," she said.

Not so concerned about weight

Kristen Bell

Almost immediately after giving birth to her first child with actor Dax Shepard, 38, in March, Bell, 33, went back to work to film the Veronica Mars movie and sitcom Parks and Recreation.

She has also filmed a promo for skincare brand Neutrogena.

"The secret to body after baby is flushing down the toilet every notion of body after baby," the US actress told E! News recently.

"I have a baby. It's so radical! Why on earth am I going to be so concerned with my pants size?" But she admitted that she has been jogging, doing pilates and going for spinning classes.

Losing kilos with running

Penelope Cruz

Less than three months after giving birth to daughter Luna, the second child for her and fellow actor Javier Bardem, Cruz, 39, wowed fans in a body-hugging black lace dress on the red carpet for her movie The Counselor earlier this month.

The Spanish couple wed in 2010 and also have a two-year-old son, Leo.

Asked by E! News how she got her figure back after Luna, she said: "Just running after them, running after the kids, I think."
