Secrets of Sizzling Celebrity Moms
Mother’s Day is just around the corner, so why not celebrate these female forces and all their fabulousness. No longer is motherhood limited to a wardrobe of bad jeans and sweat suits—today’s moms are sexier than ever. Celebrity mothers can motivate us all to look sensational while pushing a carriage or shuttling kids to and from school. Sure, these star parents can afford an army of personal trainers and nutritionists, but don’t be a hater! Instead, be inspired to celebrate their (and your) hotness! Here’s a look at Hollywood’s fittest moms and their secrets to looking so darn good!
During the weeks leading up to her March 26 nuptials to Jim Toth, the longtime runner amped up her gym routine with 75-minute yoga classes. She was also spotted at a Physique 57 class in Beverly Hills. The cardio and total-body toning program involves a mix of intense isometric exercises and stretching. Just days after returning from her honeymoon in Belize, the Water for Elephants star was spotted jogging near her L.A. home. "I try to exercise every day. I like to run for about an hour, and I'm big into working out with girlfriends," she has said.
People magazine’s World’s Most Beautiful Woman’s greatest achievement is her 3-year-old twins. Parenthood certainly suits the American Idol judge. The celebrated style icon, 41, has never looked better! “I’m not an overeater. I just eat a little bit of anything,” Jennifer has said. The hard-working star mom never misses a workout. She exercises with a trainer 4 days a week for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Plus, she’ll squeeze in a workout at night, “The twins go to bed at 8:30, so I might start working out then,” she recently told People. (Get legs like J. Lo with this exclusive workout from her trainer!)
This mother of four might be the busiest celebrity mom on the planet. The Project Runway host has created her own empire of TV shows, fashion lines, and a jewelry collection (just to name a few)! Even though Heidi, 37, retired her Victoria’s Secret wings last year, her body is still runway ready. She’s a longtime fan of fitness expert David Kirsch’s strength-training and cardio workout—and she sometimes runs with husband, singer Seal. Her secret to looking fresh: "Sleep! I get up at 5:30, so I'm exhausted early. I go to bed at 8:30 most nights,” she told Self magazine.
The Modern Family bombshell is mom to a 19-year-old son! It’s hard to believe motherhood can be so sexy. Just two years shy of 40, the Latina actress knows she’s got to rev up her workouts to maintain her enviable curves. “When I can, I try to do Latin dancing for exercise. It’s so much fun and I just love the music,” she revealed in Shape magazine. She’s also taken up a strength-training program that she does a couple of days a week. “I don’t mind it because it’s pretty easy and I don’t have to sweat too much.” (You can get in shape like Sofia with these fun dance workouts.)
Talk about a cool mom! Gwen, 41, a mother of two, not only rocks on stage and the runway with her L.A.M.B. fashion line, but she also flaunts the killer body of someone half her age. Sheer vanity and a love of fashion motivate her to stay fit and work out 5 days a week. “I’d like to have no rules and eat what I want, but I’ve learned over the years that I’m so disappointed when I can’t wear the clothes I want to wear,” she told Elle UK. Her trainer, Gunnar Peterson, likes to focus on cardio that uses her whole body to challenge more muscles and burn mega calories.
The Cougar Town actress is a real-life cougar! Courteney, 46, is often spotted flaunting her superfit bikini bod on L.A. beaches. The mother of one credits the Tracy Anderson Method, a celebrity-favorite toning program, with sculpting her age-defying physique. (Find the best advice from top celebrity trainers here!) “I stick with the Method because it is a constant challenge. As soon as I have mastered a certain exercise, they throw something else at me. In my 1 1/2-hour workout sessions I have had a mental and physical challenge,” she told GOOP. The busy mom also says, “I have seen amazing results that I never thought were possible. My butt has lifted, my arms are sculpted, and my skin is tight and actually clings to the muscles again.”
