Look who’s painting the town red!

Six weeks after welcoming son Beau Kyle with fiancé Cutter Dykstra, actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler played the part of haute mama while walking the purple carpet at the Wounded Warrior Project‘s Carry Forward Awards on Thursday.

With her long brown locks framing her face, the new mom showed off her svelte shape in Ted Baker’s fit and flare Tezz dress paired with nude sandals, a coordinating clutch and H. Stern’s gold Grupo Corpo Ring ($5,900).

Before the former Sopranos star welcomed her son on Aug. 28 — she later shared a sweet snapshot of the two holding hands — Sigler admitted that although Dykstra was a fan of her new figure, she was still getting used to her curves.

Penélope Cruz had a big smile on her face Thursday as she hit the red carpet in London, and we’re guessing we know why.

The mom of two, who just welcomed daughter Luna in July, debuted her slimmer curves in a stunning lace gown by Temperley London that hugged her in all the right places.

The 39-year-old, who was promoting her new film, The Counselor, was joined on the red carpet by her co-star and husband, Javier Bardem.

The couple, who tied the knot in the Bahamas in 2010, are also parents to son Leonardo, 2½.

Cruz has admitted that being a mom has changed her completely, and called giving birth to Leo “a revolutionary experience.”

Looking at Shakira‘s rock-hard abs, it’s hard to believe that the singer delivered her first child earlier this year.

But the new mom, who’s featured on the cover of the September issue of Self, tells the magazine that she didn’t snap back into shape immediately after her son, Milan, was born in January.

“After the delivery, you look like a shar-pei!” the 36-year-old admits.

Shakira says she avoided packing on too many pregnancy pounds by training four to five mornings a week. “I did Zumba throughout my pregnancy,” she reveals, and even worked out privately with its creator, Beto Perez.

Kristen Bell may be a first-time mom, but she’s a second-time host at this year’s CMT Music Awards.

Walking the red carpet in a form-fitting black Zuhair Murad leather dress with her long blonde hair worn down on Wednesday, Bell, 32, looked glamorous but had mommy duties on the brain.

Prior to the show’s start, a trim Bell revealed the new mom-friendly way she prepares for a big event.

“My new backstage beauty routine #pumpit #pumppumpitup #CMTAwards,” she Tweeted, sharing a photo of her Medela Freestyle breast milk pump.

Bell and her fiancé Dax Shepard welcomed daughter Lincoln in late March.

After delivering her second child, daughter Sydney, in 2011, Laila Ali wasn’t stressed about getting her pre-baby body back.

“The second time around I knew what to expect so I was a little easier on myself,” says Ali, who also has son CJ, 4, with her husband, former NFL star Curtis Conway. “Once I saw that you just have to eat right and exercise that’s what I did and it worked.”

It worked really well: In this week’s issue of PEOPLE, Ali, 35, shows off her toned physique for her first ever bikini shoot.

“I’ve never done a bikini shoot before,” she admits.

“I’m kind of shy, I’m not one of those people whose comfortable walking around with my butt out. But I had a baby, I got my weight down and I’m always talking about fitness and health. It’s time to show people what I’m working with.”

After giving birth to her third child, son Tucker, last September, Melissa Joan Hart knew she would have a tough road ahead of her to lose the 60 lbs. she had gained in time to return to work on her ABC Family show Melissa & Joey.

“I was 30 when I had my first child (son Mason, now 7) and now I’m 37, so each time it gets more difficult to take the baby weight off,” explains Hart, whose other son, Brady, is 5. “My metabolism has changed so it’s tricky.”

Following recommendations from friends who had success with Nutrisystem, Hart started the program in January and has shed 29 lbs.

“The food is really good! I don’t feel deprived at all. I love the ravioli, the pizza, the mashed potatoes,” says Hart, whose renewed body confidence kicked in during a recent family trip to Tahiti.
