Settling into her new role! A radiant Molly Sims looks like she's taking to motherhood well as she steps out with baby son Brooks

She welcomed her first child into the world little over a month ago.
And it seems model/actress Molly Sims is settling into her new motherly role well.
The Sports Illustrated star stepped out in Santa Monica yesterday looking healthy and happy as she carried baby son Brooks in his crib.

Molly, 39, wore a flattering black floorlength dress as she went smart casual in flats and a cardigan.
The pretty blonde wore her hair down with sunglasses on her head as she made her way to a doctor's office, looking like a pro with her baby supply bag on her shoulder.
She was later seen removing baby items from the back of her car as she chatted to acquaintances.

Sims has only previously been spotted out once before with her baby in tow, as she wore a similar dark get-up in the Los Angeles heat.
After welcoming baby Brooks Alan
Stuber, her first child with husband Scott Stuber, into the world last month, Molly took to her official website to tell her fans
how happy she was to be a mother.
In a blog entitled 'The Happiest Day Of My Life', Molly wrote: 'It is with such absolute pride and
pure joy that we welcome baby Stuber into our lives. He weighs in at
just over 7 lbs., and I could just eat him up he’s so sweet!
Happy mum: Little Brooks was born just over a month ago and is her first child with husband Scott Stuber
Dressed down: She went for a smart casual get-up in a black floorlength dress and flats for the mother-son outing
'Scott and I
could not be happier, and can’t wait to watch our little guy grow and
see the world through his eyes.
'The past nine months have already been
an incredible journey, and we are so excited for everything to come!'
Molly wed producer Stuber, 43, at a
winery in Napa Valley last year in a ceremony attended by famous friends
including Fergie, Josh Duhamel, and Vince Vaughn.
Content: Molly showed off her post baby figure and her radiant skin during her stroll yesterday afternoon
asked about what kind of mum she thinks she'll be, Molly said: 'I’m
going to be very hands-on. I have three dogs (a white Lab and two
Yorkies), and I am quite maternal and empathetic with my animals, so I
can only imagine how I’ll feel with my kids.'
'I know I’ll be really
protective; even now I cover up my belly when I watch Law & Order so he can’t hear it.'
And the radiant star certainly looked like she was enjoying her motherly duties in the sunshine yesterday.
