LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Roselyn Sanchez gave birth to daughter Sebella Rose just seven short weeks ago and she’s already looking stunningly svelte – so what’s her secret?
“Breastfeeding,” the beauty told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Thursday’s Access Hollywood Live of her post-baby shapeup. “I haven’t worked out. I guess it does [provide exercise] and it’s a lot of work.
“Tuesday the doctor said I can finally go and work out,” she added. “I’m excited to go back and be in the gym.”
In addition to becoming a mom, the 38-year-old actress recently got to work with real life heroes – filming “Act of Valor” alongside the military’s elite Navy SEALs – and Roselyn said the highly-trained soldiers definitely knew how to hit their marks.
“[The SEALs were] amazing — they were telling us how to do things!” she said. “Amazing. Just nice, nice people. Professional and unaffected by the whole business.”
Adding, “They just wanted to do a good job. It was great.”
Roselyn is one of only four professional actors in the movie – the rest of the roles are filled by SEALs and their real-life wives and children – something that caused the actress to pause before signing on for the upcoming film.
“My first instinct was like, ‘[That’s] weird. How are they going to act?’ But then I met the directors and I met the guys and I was fine,” she explained.
“At the beginning of the movie they tell you, [these are] real Navy SEALs. So, it’s endearing,” she added. “When you see them acting, you’re not expecting…you know that’s not what they do. And I think they did really good.”
“I’m obsessed with the Navy SEALs,” Billy confessed.
“You’re going to love this movie,” Roselyn said.
“Act of Valor” hits theaters on Friday.
