Owning her body! Ten months after giving birth to her baby girl, Kaya, Hayden Panettiere tweeted that she's finally feeling like herself again—and she's rocking skinny jeans to prove it.

The new mom and Nashville actress, 26, stepped out in NYC on Monday, Oct. 12, modeling a semi-sheer sapphire sweater and body-hugging cropped blue jeans, both of which showcased her slim post-baby body. The blonde beauty also worked a YSL crossbody bag, a camo-print backpack, and lace-up combat boots.

The Heroes alum looked strong roaming the concrete jungle, and per her tweet on Sunday, it seems she feels that way, too. "Feeling like I'm #finally coming back in to my own body!" she wrote, adding the hashtags, #daughter, #blessing, and #wellworthit.

Getting back to her pre-baby shape wasn't Panettiere's only struggle, though. The actress revealed that after welcoming her daughter with fiancé Wladimir Klitschko last December, she suffered postpartum depression.

Speaking out about the condition while visiting Live! With Kelly and Michael last month, Panettiere said, "It's something that's completely uncontrollable, and it's really painful and it's really scary, and women need a lot of support."

She also said, "It's something, I think, that needs to be talked about, and women need to know that they're not alone," and added, "Women are amazing. We do something that no man can do on this planet! I mean, we grow a human being in our bodies!"
