Olivia Wilde is getting real about her post-baby body! 

The gorgeous actress stuns on the cover of Shape magazine's April issue, where she also gets super candid on her fitness journey before and after baby.  

The star, who welcomed son Otis with boyfriend Jason Sudeikis last April, admits that she felt "feminine" and "sexy" while expecting and continued her workouts well into her pregnancy.  

"I did SoulCycle until I was 8 1/2 months, when I was physically incapable of walking between the bikes and had convinced them to turn the air conditioning so high that my fellow spinners were actually freezing despite prolonged sprinting uphill," the 31-year-old reveals.

After welcoming her baby boy, now 11-months, the "Drinking Buddies" star says things didn't immediately fall back to where she thought they would. 

"For a couple of weeks after you pop that sucker out, you are the walking wounded," she hilariously comments. "After giving birth, I joined the ranks of millions of new mothers when I moaned, “Why do I still look pregnant? Is there another one stuck in there?”

While some celebs and mothers feel the pressure to regain their pre-pregnancy body, the "House" alum admits her figure is anything but perfect -- despite donning a crop-top on the cover of the mag.

"I am not in perfect shape. In fact, I’m softer than I’ve ever been, including that unfortunate semester in high school when I simultaneously discovered Krispy Kreme and pot," she jokes.

"The photos of me in this magazine have been generously constructed to show my best angles and I assure you, good lighting has been warmly embraced," Wilde adds. "The truth is, I’m a mother, and I look like one."
