The former child star is working hard to be a mom, and that includes losing her baby weight — the right way.

Hilary Duff Hilary Duff has grown up fast. The 25-year-old actress quickly went from Disney child star to brand-new mom, and she can now be considered a fashion icon.

Duff gave birth to her first son, Luca, on March 22, 2012, and went to work right away to lose the weight she gained.

"My one trainer helped me lose a s*** ton of weight," Duff told Us Weekly. "I lost like 30 pounds. His name is Gabe Johns and he is amazing. He's a boxing trainer and he comes to my house. I live in the canyon, so we just run. He runs my ass up and down the hill."

Duff said back in December she was thrilled to be back in her size 26 jeans and said her workout also consists of circuit training and boxing. She added that she had "a lot of fun and you get out a lot of s*** that way."

Duff appreciated the workouts, and she didn't want to lose the weight too fast. She told Parents magazine back in October that she feels some women in Hollywood try to lose the weight in unhealthy ways.

"There are some women who look the same right after — I think they are freaks of nature! I don't know how that happens," she said, according to the Huffington Post. "I'm not one of those people. It takes your body nine months to get there — really 10 months. So I'm trying to be patient but I'm working hard. And I think now more than ever, I appreciate my body and what it's done for me."

The actress is working hard at being a mom and staying in shape. Her son will turn 1 year old in a little over a month, and her weight-loss milestone should be celebrated that day too. She is looking good and doing it the right way!
