Apart from her diet plan, the actress takes care of her body and overall well-being by following an active lifestyle. After giving birth to her first child in 2015, she became more productive in terms of exercising. “This year, being pregnant, I got myself a trainer. I’ve never had a trainer before. I did that specifically because I wanted to train properly and do the proper types of exercises that are needed at this time in my life. This year’s focus is to be healthy and to maintain for my baby. After that, I can get into punishing myself a little bit more! the actress said.
