Cape Town - Katherine Heigl’s transformation is incredible!

The 39-year-old and her husband, Josh Kelly – who are also parents to their two adopted daughters, Naleigh and Adelaide – welcomed their son, Joshua Jr, into the world back in 2016.

The 27 Dresses actress took to Instagram on Monday and shared side-by-side snaps showing her weight loss after giving birth to her little boy.

“It’s been almost 14 months since Joshua Jr was born and it has taken me about that long to really get back in shape,” Katherine wrote.

“The first pic was taken one month after he was born. The second pic was taken almost a full year later and the last pic was taken this weekend.

“I wish I had a few from in between the first and second so you could really see how slow my progress was but alas... I was busy covering it all up those months, not posing in my unders!”

The mom-of-three revealed a few things that have kept her motivated during her weight loss journey, including her upcoming role in the hit show, Suits.

“I have a beach vacation coming up, a new job I start filming in April and my deep desire to feel fit, strong and sexy propelling me forward the last two months to finally lose the last of my baby weight and do a deep dive search for the ab muscles I knew were buried under that belly somewhere!” she wrote. 

The former Grey’s Anatomy star also gushed about the workout programme she found to suit her hectic lifestyle.

“I found a fantastic app called #sweat that features several different #BBG [Bikini Body Guide] programs you can choose from and makes it incredibly easy to do anywhere, which for me means in my bedroom at home!

The app was developed by Aussie trainer and Instagram sensation, Kayla Itsines.

“I won’t lie, the workouts are real ass kickers but the progress I’ve made in only 5 short weeks has kept me motivated and inspired to keep going!

“I am so grateful I’ve had a full year to find those ab muscles and get my butt back up where it belongs and wasn’t forced by work to snap back into shape,” Katherine wrote.

The Life As We Know It star isn’t the only A-lister who’s shared her incredible transformation.

Blake Lively recently revealed on Instagram that she shed more than 27 kg after 14 months of intense training.

“Turns out you can’t lose the 61 lbs [27.6 kg] you gained during pregnancy by just scrolling through Instagram and wondering why you don’t look like all the bikini models,” Blake wrote.
