She recently welcomed daughter India Rose into the world while also having completed work as producer/star of the upcoming movie "The Wine of Summer", but Elsa Pataky also managed to make time to pose for the cover of ELLE Spain's August 2012 issue.

The 36-year-old Spanish model/actress showed off her stunning self in a Blumarine XL Tulle dress with sequins paired with Jimmy Choo boots for the Xavi Gordo shot front page while dishing about keeping fit and healthy during her pregnancy.

A few of the highlights from Miss Pataky's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to ELLE Spain!

On her pregnancy workouts:
"During the pregnancy, I was going to the gym four times a week to do the elliptical machine combined with yoga and Pilates."

On making smoothies to stay healthy:
"We have a Vitamix, a powerful mixer that lets you make smoothies with vegetables and fruits. The traditional juicers extract the juice only, which is where the sugar is, and leave out the fiber, which is best [for you]. But the Vitamix has a very strong power that liquefies the vegetables."

On her pregnancy diet self discipline:
"I cut the sweets by not taking a full dessert, only three teaspoonfuls to stay calm and happy. Many use pregnancy as an excuse to eat without limit and that is a mistake, it is important to maintain control."
