We didn't even know she had that much weight to lose! 

Blake Lively has taken to Instagram to share her post-baby weight loss and all we can say is DAYUM! The actress, who welcomed daughter Ines in September 2016, has gone against the Hollywood norm of dropping baby weight as soon as possible and has spent 14 months working at it.

The actress shared a snap of herself showing off her abs with trainer Don Saladino, she wrote:

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

"Thanks @donsaladino for kickin my A double S into shape. 10 months to gain, 14 months to lose. Feeling very proud."

Don also shared a snap of his own with the pair showing off their muscles together. He wrote:

"Couldn’t be more proud @blakelively! 61 pounds in 14 months after baby number 2!"

"Doesn’t she look awesome?"

Fans commented on the photo, saying how happy they were she didn't pretend it happened overnight. One fan wrote:

"Thank you for being honest on how long it took you to lose your baby weight. Some celebrities make it seem like theirs fell off overnight... You look amazing."

Another added:

"Literally just made me feel so much better as to why I didn't just 'bounce back' like all the celebrities."

Someone else said:

"Thank you for being so honest about how hard it can be to lose the weight! My baby is 12 months and I still have 17lb to lose."

Others commented on the fact she was very lucky to have had a personal trainer and other luxuries that being a celebrity afforded her. 

Either way, she looks bloody amazing! Well done, Blake!
