Jessica Alba isn't going through pregnancy sitting down.

The expectant actress, who's getting ready for her second child to arrive later this summer, has managed to stay busy – and active! With her dog Bowie, a 5-year-old female American bull dog rescue, by her side, Alba makes sure to take morning hikes to keep fit.

"I take walks in the mornings for 30 minutes," she tells PEOPLE. "I've made a concerted effort to be healthier than I was during my first pregnancy."

On top of her morning routine, Alba also likes to squeeze in some prenatal yoga when she can, though that's a kind of down dog Bowie isn't doing!

Find out more about how Jessica Alba is getting ready for baby in this week's issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now.
