In a sea of exercise- and diet-obsessed celebs, Jennifer Garner is a beacon of normalcy. The 40-year-old actress is a mom to three little ones and wife to Hollywood heart throb Ben Affleck, and somehow manages to keep work and family life in proper balance.
We reported back in April that Garner stepped out for the first time post-birth to reveal an amazing post-baby body at a film event in Las Vegas. And since then, the star has slimmed down even more, showing off her sexy figure this week at a movie premiere in Los Angeles for the film The Odd Life of Timothy Green.
As reported by People Magazine, the busy actress made workouts a priority both during and after her pregnancy with the help of celebrity trainer Valerie Waters. Waters, who has also sculpted the bodies of A-list celebs like Kate Beckinsale, Bradley Cooper and Jessica Biel, has worked with Garner for more than a decade and says the star’s toned body is all thanks to her hard work and dedication.
“She’s looking so amazing right now,” said Waters. “She looks strong and sexy, and I like that she’s rocking her Lycra again!”
Although Garner initially took things slow after her pregnancy with 15-20 minute workouts, Waters told People that she’s been increasing her session lengths and frequency. “We’re at a fine-tuning, sculpting stage now,” she said. “She’s strong and can kick it into gear – no question, bring it on!”
When it comes to Garner’s diet, the health-conscious star limits processed foods and eats mostly organic, and curbs cravings with fresh veggies and fruit. Garner also loves making scrambled eggs with a little sliced avocado for breakfast. “Jen can cook, so she’s able to make healthy meals that are balanced,” said Waters.
Garner has been a good role model to her kids so far, who have already started following her in her healthy foot steps. In addition to eating whole foods like mom, they also reportedly get in on the action during her training sessions with Waters by throwing around little weights just like mom does. If that isn’t an adorable picture of health, we don’t know what is.
