Being a mommy looks good on Evan Rachel Wood.

The beautiful star glowed on the CFDA Fashion Fund Awards in New York City last night, wearing a long red gown that accentuated her amazing post-baby body. But the actress simply tells E! News that her impressive figure is due to staying healthy both during and after her pregnancy.

"I don't know, I stayed really healthy during my pregnancy and still doing the same thing, still trying to stay healthy. But it's been great," Wood tells us.

The 26-year-old star welcomed a baby boy in late July with husband Jamie Bell, and shares some of the memorable moments with her son that make being a parent so gratifying.

"The first time the smile and laugh at you and they show some kind of love and affection back, that's the best," she said. "That's it for me."

Wood is already getting back to work on 10 Things I Hate About Life, a spinoff from the 1999 romantic comedy 10 Things I Hate About You, and although she's ready to get back in front of the camera, the celeb admits it was nice to be with her family during her time off.

"It has been nice just being able to be at home and be with the little one. But I am, I am excited to get back to work. I feel like I've got much more inspiration now," she tells E! News.
