Confident: Hilary Duff confidently revealed her newly-svelte shape after month of hard work in the gym on Wednesday afternoon
The former child star showcased the athletic nature of her petite physique as she displayed a toned set of abs for the first time since her pregnancy.
She was glamorously dressed for the beach day and kept herself protected from the sun in style with mirrored shades and a large sun hat.
Toned as she ran up the beach, the beauty certainly had that holiday feeling and let out a giggle as she turned towards a girlfriend and her young son.

The results of Hilary's stepped up gym regime were first revealed in late 2014, as she simultaneously admitted to Shape magazine that she finally felt 'fit and strong and happy'.
In the interview, she said addressed her own personal weight battle saying that in her Disney years as Lizzie McGuire she had been 98lbs and 'far too skinny'.
Like most, she still hovers around five to ten pounds of weight fluctuation, she admits, but she said was proud that her body had been so strong throughout pregnancy.
Later, the star told Elle.com: 'I just tell myself, "I'm 5'2", I'm really fit, killing it in the gym, and doing crazy things." I love to work out, but I'm just not that concerned with being the skinniest person.'

'I'm not a model; I'm an actress. I always feel like I'm in the five to ten pound struggle, but my life is so busy. I'm just not that concerned, really. I'm normal and I'm perfectly happy being that way.
'Some weeks I'm like, "Man, my clothes are fitting so good" and then some weeks I'm like, "I need to cut back on a few things," but that's it. I don't fall into the trap of having to be 110 pounds.'
2014 was also the year that Hilary filed from divorce from Luca's father Mike Comrie and she very publicly signed up to dating app Tinder.
Mike and Hilary are now working on amicable co-parenting relationship for the sake of Luca, as their legal battle for custody continues.
