Mom’s night out!
Seven weeks after welcoming her daughter, Ali Larter stepped out for her first event to attend the launch of Calia By Carrie Underwood in West Hollywood on Monday. But with her two children — including 4-year-old son Theodore — at home, the outing was bittersweet.
“It’s a little nerve-wracking,” she told PEOPLE, “I’m a little shaky, but I’m having a nice dinner with my girlfriends after and I think part of that’s important to be able to talk to other moms … and be in it together a little bit.”
Larter, 39, who showed off her body after baby in skinny jeans, a cream blouse and houndstooth blazer, has yet to return to her regular workout routine. Instead, the mom of two has been hitting the trails to get back in shape. “I do a lot of hiking,” she says. “For me, it’s walking and hiking and I just started to get back into my Pilates just to really firm me up again.”
She adds, “I gained 55 lbs., with my babies so I pack on the pounds and they nurse it out of me.”
