Emily Deschanel has taken a leaf out of her TV character's book when it comes to losing her baby weight sensibly.
The 35-year-old actress and her husband actor David Hornsby welcomed their first child Henry together on September 21 of last year.
Emily is famed for playing Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan on the hit Fox TV series Bones. Her character has a baby girl in season seven, and the star was pregnant both on and off screen.
Emily says Bones' relaxed attitude to regaining her pre-pregnancy body rubbed off on her in real life.
"My character was pregnant she's the normal woman. She can take the time that it takes to lose the weight and I'm doing that myself," she told ET Online.
"Yeah I haven't lost all my weight yet hopefully I will eventually."
Emily maintained a vegan diet throughout her pregnancy. The stunning star has followed the healthy eating plan for 19 years now.
She has previously gushed about her son's development, claiming motherhood isn't at all glamorous. While filming Bones, Emily revealed how the on-screen infants seemed to be especially eager to pass water.
“That baby [in the scene] peed on us,” she laughed previously. “Henry [had] also peed on me that day... when it happened I said, 'I've been peed on today by two different babies!’"
