Now, six months after giving birth to her third child, daughter Birdie Mae, the new mum stepped out on Thursday to show off her 45kg weight loss.

‘I’m so proud’

The blonde beauty was spotted out and about in New York City sporting a tight-fitting black mini-dress that showed off her legs and cleavage.

Jessica allowed just a hint of her lacy black bra to peek out of the frock’s low-cut neckline, while the thigh-high split hinted at her slim pins.

She wore he locks straight and loose and kept her makeup look simple with a smokey eye and nude lip.

Jessica’s weightloss secrets

The 39-year-old proudly shared a photo of her slim post-baby body with her Instagram fans on Wednesday, revealing that she “tipped the scales” at just over 108kg during her pregnancy.

The former reality star also told fans that she’s now down to 63.5kg and is “so proud to feel like myself again”.

“6 months. 100 pounds down (Yes, I tipped the scales at 240 😜)
My first trip away from #BIRDIEMAE and emotional for many reasons, but so proud to feel like myself again. Even when it felt impossible, I chose to work harder,” the “I Wanna Love You Forever” hitmaker captioned the snap.

While Jessica didn’t divulge her diet or workout routine, she has been a spokeswoman for Weight Watchers in the past.
