Kerry Washington welcomed her first child, daughter Isabelle, just last April — but the ‘Scandal’ star is already back to her pre-pregnancy weight!

During a new interview, the 37-year-old revealed she was able to lose the excess pounds in such a short period of time by simply keeping up with a busy work schedule and caring for Isabelle.

“I’m mostly working 16-hour days and spending a lot of time running after my little girl,” the actress — who married former pro-football player Nnamdi Asomugha in June 2013 — said.

Although Kerry has remained tight-lipped about her personal life in the past, she did open up about new motherhood in July 2014, just months after she gave birth.

“I feel really, really blessed. I just feel really blessed that I’m kind of living extraordinary dreams come true in my work life and in my personal life,” she told ‘The Los Angeles Times.’

Kerry spoke with ‘E! News‘ about the baby weight.
