It was only in April of last year that Kerry Washington and her retired NFL player husband Nnamdi Asomugha welcomed their first child into the world, a baby daughter called Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha, and now the 37-year-old actress has already got her hot pre-pregnancy body back.

While attending The Daily Front Row's Fashion Los Angeles Awards at the Sunset Tower Hotel, Washington revealed to E!News that she was able to shed so much weight in such a short period of time in two very simple ways.

"I'm mostly working 16-hour days and spending a lot of time running after my little girl," the 'Scandal' star told the reporter.

Washington, who famously wore 5-inch Christian Louboutin heels two months before giving birth at the 2014 Oscars, attended the fashion award show to present Women's Shoe Designer of the Year.

"I famously wore my high heel Louboutins until I was 10 and a half months pregnant," Washington also said, while laughing. "I was at the Oscars in my Louboutins wobbling. My mother said she didn't breathe the entire time I presented at the Oscars because I was hugely pregnant in my Louboutins."

Although Washington usually remains tight-lipped about her personal life, she did talk candidly about motherhood only several months after giving birth. During a Q & A session, which took place last July, the 'Django: Unchained' actress said, "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."
