Olivia Pope would be SO impressed!
In a recent interview with Self magazine, Kerry Washington debuted her post-baby bod after giving birth to her first child, Isabella, back in April of 2014. Let's just say the momma looks absolutely FLAWLESS!

Considering Washington is the star of Scandal, she couldn't waste any time getting back to the gym. The actress admits she relied on her character's impressive ability to multi-task to get the job done, revealing:
"It makes my heart smile to think that maybe part of the reason I'm taking all this on is because of Olivia. She truly believes that she can handle every situation, and I do feel that has bled into my life. I have more of a sense of my capacity to do anything."
Amazing! We love how Kerry draws her butt kicking inspiration from Pope!
But whatever you do, don't say that the 38-year-old has her body "back". Apparently, the mother of one takes umbrage with the idea that a woman needs to reclaim her body so to speak, explaining:
"I've been really focused on not being 'back' to anything, but being the best version of myself right now. My body is the site of a miracle now. I don't want to be pre-miracle."
Kerry elaborated on her annoyance with the term, adding:
"You know what? I try really hard not to use that language, because it's not about going backward in life.'"
Preach, girl! You look fab and have a gorgeous personality to match!
