Lou Sheng, one of China’s beloved giant pandas, gave birth to twins – a boy and a girl – almost a month ago and she’s already getting her figure back! That’s probably because of all the lifting she’s been doing of this dynamic duo, who she allowed the world to see on Thursday at Shaanxi Rare Wildlife Breeding and Research Centre in China’s Shaanxi Province.

Born on Aug. 18, the adorable 1-month-old babies are doing well, and getting a lot of rest laying on top of their mom, who makes a cushy giant pillow.

According to the U.K.’s Daily Mail, Lou Sheng, who is reportedly the first panda born via artificial insemination, welcomed her twins thanks to donations from male pandas Sansan and Xiaoming, fellow residents at the Research Centre.

She may have her hands full now, but soon Lou Sheng will be doing a lot more running around: one of the cubs was spotted taking some of its first steps on Thursday!
