While it's been less than five months since Kim Zolciak gave birth to twins Kane and Kaia, the mother of six is already back in phenomenal shape and she's not afraid to show off her impressive figure.

"I got my body back really quickly," the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star admitted to E! News while promoting her partnership with Mama Walker's breakfast inspired liqueurs (Maple Bacon is her favorite flavor!) in celebration of the brand's upcoming birthday.

But that doesn't mean her road to her bangin' post-baby bod has been smooth sailing.

"My stomach is definitely very flat I don't have any stretch marks; however, I did get a hernia," the blond beauty candidly revealed. "So that stinks, because I do have a small hernia…but it doesn't make my stomach look any different I just knew that something was different during this pregnancy than in the past. But I definitely got my body back pretty quick."

As for how she lost the baby weight?

"I think it's because they [the twins] took everything…they took everything that I ate the entire pregnancy. And then of course I breastfed afterwards, which helps. And then Xenadrine…and working out with [my] husband and, you know, here I am."

The Don't Be Tardy star made waves after her assistant posted a sneaky shot of the star's enviable backside on Instagram, and Kim admits she was surprised by the attention.

"Well…I was going to kick her ass, because she was working on my calls and she did take a picture and a lot of people were like, 'Oh, it was staged.' And it really wasn't, and I'm glad that she at least—you know, I didn't look crazy. But you know, I still have a few pounds to go," she admitted. "My clothes, they fit, but they are still a little snug. But you know, I'm really thankful, at the end of the day I have six healthy beautiful children and you know, at this point in my life, I will face whatever I don't feel comfortable with down the road."

The busy mama also had some great tips for others trying to lose the baby weight. 

"I don't sit down," the celeb-on-the-go confessed. "I think even pregnant with twins, very, very pregnant with twins, I was shopping, walking around, I could barely walk towards the end. But I definitely think staying active is a big thing. I really did give into my cravings, I ate what I want, but I did still eat in moderation. It's not a free for all, you're not feeding two, or three in my case, but I did enjoy myself."

And of course the encouragement from her hubby Kroy Biermann is also helpful.

"My husband loves me a little thicker and he loves my body—pregnant, not pregnant, flabby, not flabby—so I don't have the pressures," she shared. "I just I live my life, I'm thankful to have two healthy twins who were born healthy…Life's too short; I don't stress about it."

Talk about great advice! So how does she manage to stay sane with six kids and such a busy schedule?

"I balance it," she said. "I have a 17-year-old, a 12-year-old—and my 12-year-old is a big help and my twins are angel babies. KJ will be three the end of May and Kash is 20 months almost two and it just works. My husband is very hands-on, and he's a really big help and my girls are a really big help."

No doubt Zolciak is one hot mama who has her hands full!
