It’s only been six months since she gave birth to her daughter, Penelope Joan, but Anna Chlumsky has already regained her slender, pre-pregnancy figure, and for the Veep star there’s no mystery as to how she did it.

“People have asked this, and I’ve gone, ‘Oh, I don’t know!’ Of course I know,” the actress, 33, told PEOPLE at the Entertainment Weekly Screen Actors Guild Party in Hollywood.

“I exercised a lot while I was pregnant, I did pregnancy workout tapes five days a week, and I did pregnancy yoga once a week. I was exercising, and it was the best thing.”
