Washington: Soon-to-be-mum Jessica Alba has admitted to relying on her grandmother’s workout tips to shed the post pregnancy flab and regain her slim figure.

The actress is all set to give birth to her second child with husband Cash Warren by the end of this year.

And, the ‘Fantastic Four’ star claims that she is continuing her exercises to stay healthy right up until the tot’s arrival.

"I’d like to still do something five days a week, from a half hour to an hour - nothing excessive, just some moving (around). It makes the whole pregnancy so much easier. The more fit you are, the easier the birth is, and a healthier baby you’re going to have," Contactmusic quoted her as telling Latina magazine.

Speaking to People.com, Alba acknowledged, "my grandmother was amazing. She would go home and would put on the clothes that she wore before she got pregnant with all five of her kids. It’s definitely good genetics, but she also worked through all of her pregnancies. Just being on your feet and moving probably helped."
