The hard work has paid off! Milla Jovovich displays her svelte post-baby body in denim shorts as enjoys a morning hike in LA


he gave birth to her second child, daughter Dashiel EdanDash, on April 1 but Milla Jovovich has already snapped back into shape.

The Ukranian born actress showed off her amazing post baby body on a morning hike in the Hollywood Hills, with her dogs on Friday.

The 39-year-old put the results of her workouts on show in a dove grey tank top and denim shorts.

Milla, who’s married to director Paul W.S. Anderson, hit the trail in comfy Nike trainers and wisely carried a bottle of water.

She also brought along a couple of walking partners to keep herself entertained.

Jovovich has been documenting little Dash's first weeks on her social media accounts and posting photos of the baby. 

She posted the first snap on April 1 when her new daughter was hours old to let her followers know the infant had arrived.

 Announcing the news, she wrote: 'She is 7lbs. 10 oz. and 20 inches long! We love you Dash!' 

Jovovich stuck to a healthy diet during the pregnancy, snapping back into shape as she got back into work.

In a blog post earlier this year, she wrote: 'I'm really proud of myself for not gaining the same amount of weight that I did with our first child (75lbs.).'

'Because I have to be ready to start filming Resident Evil: The Final Chapter in August of this year and I will also be nursing an infant simultaneously (get ready wardrobe department for Alice's new "easy mama access" costume) so I don't want to be on any extreme diets to get ready to go back to "action hero" mode!'

The sixth and final instalment of the film franchise based on the popular video game is scheduled for release in 2016.
