Kym Herjavec Shows Off Her Post-Baby Body Transformation 9 Months After Giving Birth to Twins
The Dancing with the Stars pro and her husband Robert Herjavec welcomed their twins in April
Kym Johnson-Herjavec is flaunting her body after babies!
Sharing a side-by-side photo to her Instagram Stories, Kym, 42, wore a black bikini in both photos — except the star traded her giant baby bump in the left photo for her son Hudson Robert and daughter Haven Mae in the right photo.
There was no question that Kym bounced back from the baby weight, as she rocked the flirty two-piece bathing suit in the “after pic” and showed off her toned abs.
The proud mama captioned the shots, “#9monthchallenge,” putting her own twist on the recent viral #10YearChallenge, which gave dozens of stars a chance to flaunt how far they’ve come (or not) in the last decade.
Kym and Robert welcomed their son and daughter on April 23. The Shark Tank star, 56, was already a father of three children from a previous marriage.
Kym made the exciting announcement in a black-and-white Instagram photo that showed her husband carrying both babies in his arms.
“I never thought my heart could feel so full. We’re so in love with our little angels. Born at 7.44am and 7.45am 4/23/18,” the professional dancer wrote in the caption.

During her pregnancy, the dance pro told PEOPLE that she would take her time getting back into her pre-baby routines, specifically her workouts.
“My whole thought on this pregnancy is I’m letting my body do what it needs to do,” she said in April. “After I have the babies, I’ll take my time getting back. I haven’t gained too much weight on my arms or my legs. It does seem to be my belly.”
In order to bounce back so quickly, Kym made sure that while she was pregnant, she ate healthy and maintained her physical activity by frequenting her Beverly Hills dance fitness studio with a take-it-easy approach.
“Staying fit can be very tricky when you’re pregnant. You’re exhausted all the time so motivating yourself to work out can be difficult,” she admitted in January 2018.
“Personally, my doctor advised me not to exercise at all for the first three months. You can imagine how hard this was for me since I’ve been an active person my whole life,” she said.
The two-time Mirrorball Trophy winner had to rule out jumping and running from her workouts and included prenatal Pilates and dance cardio instead.
“I also do some upper body strength movements, since I don’t want my muscle to turn to flab,” Kym stated.
Her body transformation is not the only thing Kym has spoken candidly about. Just a few months after welcoming the twins, Kym shared the very real side of new motherhood for her first Mother’s Day.
The star celebrated the holiday by sharing two photos of herself in the midst of breastfeeding her newborns as she posted a picture of her multitasking while feeding as well as a hilarious snapshot of her breastmilk leaking through her clothes.
“I never realized being a mom was so glamorous. My mom gave me some great advice when we came home with the babies which was Keep a good sense of humor,” she said.
Despite the challenges of first time motherhood, Kym previously told PEOPLE that she was always certain about one thing.
“I’ve always wanted to be a mom,” she said. “It really is a miracle.”
