If you got it, flaunt it! Diane Kruger may have given birth to her first child just last November, but the Welcome to Marwen star took to Instagram on Sunday, March 17, to prove you can have toned abs and an impressive post-baby body not long after welcoming your little bundle of joy.
“Am I showing off ? F–k yeah. ‘Cause it’s been hard work to get my abs back,” the 42-year-old captioned the flashy pic of her kneeling on a yoga mat dressed in a red bikini top and printed pants. “I didn’t think it was possible after having a baby. And certainly not at my age.” Take a look below at Diane’s impressive post-baby body!

Am I showing off ? Fuck yeah. ‘cause it’s been hard work to get my abs back. I didn’t think it was possible after having a baby. And certainly not at my age. I want to thank @hannahbower2 for sharing her journey and helping me get motivated. I don’t have a trainer, but I’ve been committed to get my body back. For myself first….but also for my 👻 The female body is AMAZING 😉 #andyesIminabikiniworkingoutcauseitshothereandwhynot
The blonde beauty, who welcomed her daughter with partner Norman Reedus around Thanksgiving time last year, went on to thank fitness influencer Hannah Bower for being her main resource for motivation. “I don’t have a trainer, but I’ve been committed to getting my body back. The female body is AMAZING,” she gushed.
Although Diane and Norman live their life in the spotlight, the National Treasure actress has been extremely passionate about protecting the privacy of her newborn. Just a few months after giving birth, the first-time mom begged the public to respect her daughter’s privacy after photos were leaked without her permission.
“Dear fans, dear non-fans, dear paparazzi and anyone with a conscience. We were just tagged in these paparazzi pictures of me and our daughter,” she wrote in the caption of an Instagram post featuring the snap with the little one’s face blurred out. “These pictures were taken without our consent and expose a vulnerable and innocent baby.”
Diane even said that, although she completely understands why fans would love to see a pic of their adorable daughter, “we as parents, want nothing more than allow her to grow up in privacy and safety.” In conclusion, Diane tagged her Walking Dead star beau — whom she met on the set of their 2015 film Sky — and said: “Me and @bigbaldhead would kindly ask you not to repost these pictures and help us achieve that goal.”
Although motherhood can have its ups and downs, the Troy actress recently revealed that she is so happy with her little family. “I didn’t think I wanted children for a long time. I was too selfish,” Diane said. “But by the time I got to about 35, I thought, yes, I probably do want one. But then you have to wait for the right person to come along. I’m glad I waited.”
