Penélope Cruz is fit to be honored…

The 39-year-old Spanish actress has been selected by Fitness magazine as the 2013 “Best Body

Penelope Cruz

The designation comes after Cruz’s pregnancy and the birth of her daughter Luna in July.

While other celebs like Jennifer Lawrence and Sandra Bullock made the list of hottest celeb bodies, the Oscar-winning actress grabbed the magazine’s no.1 spot.

E! Online reported that the stunning actress credits “following a Mediterranean diet, taking women protein bars, following fitness guides, dancing and chasing after her kids for getting her back into shape after both pregnancies.”

In a recent interview with WSJ Magazine, Cruz says she’s “lucky and grateful” for being a mom, a wish she always had.

“It changes everything in your life,” she said. “It’s also going to change the way you approach your work and the way you understand a character like this because she is obsessed with becoming a mother but her body is not working that way and she has to live with the frustration.”

Cruz described her choice to feed Luna naturally, making her the priority.

“I’m breastfeeding and don’t want to give her formula if I can avoid it,” she said. “When I get them to bed, I’ll think about what I want to eat. I’m only thinking about them now.”

The actress also recently discussed her new slim figure with Red magazine after giving birth to Luna.

“I think I’m very lucky that I can breastfeed my children because sometimes even if a woman wants to, she can’t,” she said. “I breastfeed my son for 13 months and I plan to do at least the same with my daughter. That’s an amazing thing for babies, but it’s also really good for the mother because it regulates your body again after pregnancy.”
