New Mom Ginger Zee on How Dancing with the Stars Has Changed Her Body: 'I'm Really Happy'

Ginger Zee was looking good on Dancing with the Stars Monday – and not just because she got the first perfect score of season 22.

The judges' marks came during Zee's moving dance to Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing" with partner Val Chmerkovskiy. But Zee's stellar night didn't end there – the Good Morning America host (and new mom) was just as thrilled with how her body looked in the Beyoncé-inspired outfit she wore during the group routine that closed the show.

"When we tried this outfit on, I was like 'I don't know. I don't know,' " Zee, 35, told PEOPLE after Monday's show. "And then I was, like, 'Woah! That's me?!' I was really impressed."

Zee welcomed son Adrian Benjamin in December. And while she says she hasn't lost weight, just transformed her shape, the meteorologist admitted she's "really happy" to see her body looking this good just four months after giving birth.

"But we're not going into it thinking [about] that," she says of losing weight during the competition. "It's just an extra icing on the cake."

"I've left my diet behind. I'm just trying to eat," she told reporters of how her eating habits have changed since she became a contestant on the ABC reality dance competition. "I get home [from rehearsals] and I'm, like, 'What can I eat?' And then I go to bed!"

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays (at 8 p.m.) on ABC.
