We're about to spill the tea on how Blake Lively, our beloved blonde bombshell and adored mother of four, has once again miraculously defied all odds by slipping into a bikini just a few months after bringing another bundle of joy into the world. Seriously, is there anything this woman can't do?

So, here we are, in the throes of peak bikini season. The time when your Instagram feed is flooded with images of Kim Kardashian emerging from water like some kind of glammed up sea creature and Alexandra Daddario chilling poolside. And just when you thought it couldn't get any hotter, here comes Lively, flaunting her post-baby bod in a two-piece and looking absolutely fabulous. Now, before all you new moms out there start feeling bad, let's be clear: shedding the baby weight ain't a cakewalk (trust me, if it was, I'd be first in line). But our girl Lively has shown us time and again that she's got the whole bounce-back thing down to an art.

The real kicker, though, is a comment she made on her recent bikini pic post that's got everyone talking. When one shocked fan asked, "How have you had 4 kids???" Lively, ever the joker, humorously clarified that her trainer, whom she'd tagged in the post, was not, in fact, responsible for her quartet of kiddos. She quipped, "Wait. No. That's not how. He's not the father. He's just the one who helps me fit into (some of) my clothes again after." LMAO.

This isn't the first time Lively has triumphed in her post-baby bikini quest. Remember when she starred in The Shallows, just 10 months after welcoming her first daughter, James? Yeah, that meant being in a bikini pretty much all the time. And who was her biggest cheerleader? Her hubby, Ryan Reynolds, who encouraged her to approach the role as if she were training for a marathon. She even thanked him for helping her get her head in the game. So, there you have it. Blake Lively: actress, mom, bikini queen. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to find my running shoes... or maybe just some cake.
