Only five months after giving birth to her daughter Esmeralda Amada, Eva Mendes is gracing the cover of ‘Women’s Health’ April issue, showing off her stunning post-baby body. The “Lost River” star spoke about she still feels like an amateur when it comes to mommy business, which is why she “hasn’t earned the right to give out advice to other moms: “I don’t feel like I’ve really earned the right. I want to respect all the moms out there,” said Mendes. “They’re going to be like, ‘You know what? You’re a few months in. Just shut up.”

Mendes spoke about how she lost her baby weight, keeping active and maintaining healthy eating habits–which she’s not happy about. “I don't love it, but I've made peace with that,” Eva told the mag about her fitness regime. “I mix up [exercise] with yoga, or sometimes I'll hike with my trainer.” In terms of her emotional health, the actress says it’s extremely important for her have an objective point of view, and have someone “point out her patterns.”

The actress says her and partner Ryan Gosling aren’t getting much sleep but she’s actually learned to enjoy those sleepless nights, “because it’s bonding with my little girl.” Which is also why Mendes stood firm on not hiring any help for the first few months, thanks to an amazing support system too; “My mom and my two older sisters have always been telling me I could accomplish anything. We have each other’s backs in the best way.”
