Hollywood star Diane Kruger proudly shows off abs just four months after giving birth

Any mom out there will tell you that it can be hard to recover physically from a pregnancy. Indeed, the experience of childbirth is one of the most painful and demanding a woman can go through, and recuperating can take many, many months.

Not only that, but the stress and hard work involved in childrearing can make it pretty much impossible to work out regularly. However, if you're looking for fitness goals, look no further than actress Diane Kruger.

The German-American actress gave birth to a baby girl with her partner Norman Reedus just four months ago, but that definitely hasn't stopped her from working out big-time. Last weekend she even took to Instagram to share a gym selfie, which displayed her rock-hard abs to her many social media followers.

"Am I showing off? F*ck yeah. Cause it’s been hard work to get my abs back," Kruger said in her Instagram caption.

"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 ... The female body is amazing!"

The actress has thus far been pretty private about her new daughter, and her experiences with pregnancy. After recently sharing a picture of her little girl on Instagram, she captioned the post:

"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. These pictures were taken without our consent and expose a vulnerable and innocent baby. While we understand that some people would like to see a picture of our daughter, we as parents, want nothing more than allow her to grow up in privacy and safety."

In a recent interview with Net-A-Porter, Kruger opened up about her recent experiences with womanhood, stating: "I didn’t think I wanted children for a long time. I was too selfish. 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."

Kruger first met Reedus back in 2015 on the set of the movie Sky. They were first revealed to be a couple in 2017, after they were spotted kissing while out and about in New York City. They've since been seen together at a number of red carpet events, and by all accounts are a very happy couple.

So there you have it: if you're having trouble renewing that gym membership and working out, then maybe take Diane as a source of inspiration...
