Kate Ferdinand shared an adorable photo of her working out in her home gym alongside her six-month-old son Cree.
The former TOWIE star highlighted her incredible post-baby figure in a charcoal grey camouflage vest and black gym leggings as she performed a glute bridge.
The 30-year-old complemented her gym attire by working her blonde hair into a sleek ponytail and sported a radiant beauty look.
However, the new mum was understandably distracted by her adorable baby boy, who also got in on the action with some tummy time on the mat beside her.
Captioning the sweet Instagram pic, Kate wrote: “New gym buddy” alongside several emojis.

The post was inundated with heartfelt comments from friends and fans, who branded the candid shot "cute".
One penned: "Aww this is too cute".
"The cutest love this," another shared. A third wrote: "Amazing!! Start them young".
Kate's workout comes weeks after she revealed her emergency caesarean section left her unable to walk for six weeks.
The former TOWIE star gave birth to her son Cree in December last year, and it took her weeks to start to recover from the birth.
A self-confessed fitness fan, Kate was known for posting videos of herself doing gruelling workouts on Instagram, sometimes with her husband Rio Ferdinand, but since becoming a mum she has learned to take it more slowly.

Speaking to the Mirror, she said: "I had an emergency C-section, that's like major stomach surgery, so you really have to ease yourself back in and listen to what the doctor said.
"I don't think I could train for six weeks, I didn't even really walk for six weeks I don't think, and then I've been gradually building it up slowly.
"I am just listening to my body I'm not doing anything if I feel like it's pulled or it's just a little bit too much I'll just stop," she added.
"I was a bit of machine before I had a baby I realise, just a crazy workout machine, and now I just take it as it comes.
"I'll try and do as much as I can but if it doesn't feel right on my scar I'll just tone it down."

Kate said she felt "traumatised" by the surgery and her anxiety was high as she wanted to be able to do more with her baby and step-children while she was recovering from the operation.
The TV star regularly documents her post-partum gym workouts on Instagram and in April reminded her fellow new mums that balance is important when looking after a little tot.
The wife of former footballer Rio Ferdinand, 42, told how sometimes she is able to begin began the day with a gruelling sweat session in her flashy home gym but sometimes she just gets back to bed after completing the morning's to-do list.

In an upload – that showcased her trim and toned post-baby body as she posed for a mirror selfie in a pair of black leggings and zip-up jacket – she typed: "Some days I make the gym and feel ready to take on the world…"
She then followed up the offering with a snap of herself cuddling her baby son Cree in bed and she continued: "& other days we shower, get back in bed and snuggle and that’s ok!"
Promoting the importance of doing what feels best and how she has found solace in connecting with other mums online, Kate added: "Being a mum is such a journey and since talking to you all and other mums on Peanut I’ve really felt like I can relate to you all so much and have stopped beating myself up if every day doesn’t go to plan."
Continuing to praise the app, she added: "Peanut also have so many groups to support you throughout all stages of motherhood, one of my favourites has been a Fitness & Motivation group; motivating you with helpful fitness suggestions."
