Katherine Heigl is getting real with all the mommas out there about losing weight after having a baby!
The 39-year-old actress gave birth to her third child, Joshua, on December 20, 2016, and she's opening up about how long it took for her to peel off the pounds following his arrival. Katherine shared her journey on Instagram on Monday, posting three side-by-side photos from one month after her son was born to nearly a full year after his birth to her most recent snap. She told her fans that it took her 14 months to lose her baby weight and she wanted to share her progress with them.
"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," Katherine captured the pictures in part.
She said her new role on "Suits" and a need to feel fit and strong helped her get rid of the final pounds.
"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," Katherine wrote.
Katherine also revealed she turned to the BBG program for some difficult workouts after she saw blogger Rachel Parcell's progress with the app. And told her fans as a momma of three — Joshua has two big sisters, Adalaide Marie Hope and Naleigh Mi-Eun — the app-style workout was easy to do on the go.

"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 definitely looks fabulous. Congrats, Katherine!
