Find Out How Star Mom Katherine Heigl Finally Got Her Pre-Baby Hot Bod Back

Getting back into shape after having a baby can take its toll on any mom. Celebrity mom, Katherine Heigl, is no different from your everyday mother wrestling with the same battle.

Katherine and her hubby, Josh Kelley welcomed their first biological child, a son last year January, after nine years on in her marriage.

The Grey’s Anatomy alum revealed she struggled with bouncing back to her pre-baby physique ever since she gave birth Joshua Jr. almost 14 months ago.

The 39-year-old actress got real with her fans on her social media this week when she posted a three-picture collage of her body transformation since giving birth to baby Joshua.

The first picture is of Katherine one month after having Josh, the second photo was almost an entire year after he was born and the third is a recent photo from over the weekend.

Transformation Tuesday! Swipe right to see more of my progress photos using the BBG program in the @sweat app!! I never would have thought in a million years that I would feel more confident in a swimsuit being a mom of two than I did in high school and college. It has been so empowering to set a goal, put HARD work, patience and consistency into it and see the rewards both mentally and physically. Being a mama is incredible, but so hard at the same time. Waking up each morning and pushing myself gave me something to kick start my day, connect with my other mama friends and has become my therapy session. Yesterday @katherineheigl shared her transformation photo after she discovered BBG through one of my posts (she looks incredible). It’s a real program that provides real results and I love connecting with other women who try it and end up loving it as much as I do. It really is life changing, more so mentally because it’s so empowering and made me feel in control of my body and mind and how far I could push myself in 28 minuets. 💕 #bbg #bbgtransformation #bbgprogress

A post shared by Rach Parcell (Pink Peonies) (@rachparcell) on

Rach’s postpartum body was enough to peak the actress’s curiosity of what ‘Sweat’ was all about.

“I had never heard of it but she looked so damn great that I had to check it out.”

Katherine wrote the last five weeks allowed her “to lose the last of my baby weight and do a deep dive search for the ab muscles I knew were buried under that belly somewhere.”

Here’s her post…

”It’s been almost 14 months since Joshua Jr was born and it has taken me about that long to really get back in shape. The first pic was taken one month after he was born.

The second pic was taken almost a full year later and the last pic was taken this weekend. I wish I had a few from in between the first and second so you could really see how slow my progress was but alas…I was busy covering it all up those months, not posing in my unders!

Anyway, I have a beach vacation coming up, a new job I start filming in April and my deep desire to feel fit, strong and sexy propelling me forward the last two months to finally loose the last of my baby weight and do a deep dive search for the ab muscles I knew were buried under that belly somewhere!

I was wholly and totally inspired by Miss @rachparcell and the before and after pics she shared after taking the #bbg challenge.

I had never heard of it but she looked so damn great (she had her baby just a few months before me) that I had to check it out. I found a fantastic app called #sweat that features several different #bbg programs you can choose from and makes it incredibly easy to do anywhere, which for me means in my bedroom at home!

I won’t lie, the workouts are real ass kickers but the progress I’ve made in only 5 short weeks has kept me motivated and inspired to keep going!

I am so grateful I’ve had a full year to find those ab muscles and get my butt back up where it belongs and wasn’t forced by work to snap back into shape but it is time to make the strength, fitness and overall health of my body a priority and I am so grateful that @rachparcell shared her story and got this mama motivated!”

Katherine and Rach are a great motivation for all new mamas out there trying to get their sexy shape back!
