Have you heard of the 40s becoming the new 20s? With healthy eating, exercise, and good genes, moms 40 and up still have the wow-factor. Celebrity moms Jada Pinkett-Smith, Jennifer Lopez, and Halle Berry show us how it’s done.
After 20 years of starting her acting career, Jada Pinkett-Smith still knows how to bring it. She will be turning 41 on September 18, yet, she still makes headlines on the red-carpet and stirs up the crowd when she hits major city streets.
Jada is a mother-of-three to Jaden, Willow and Will Smith’s son from a previous marriage. She is a doting mother who spends quality time and puts her family first. She and husband Will Smith were married in 1997.
She has devoted her life to eating healthy. She told Essence magazine, “I don’t eat for pleasure.” She went on to say that her West Indian grandmother taught her to eat for the nourishment, not for the taste. This advice has seemed to serve her well as she still has a svelte size 4 figure.
Jennifer Lopez began her career as a dancer. Today, she can thank her dancing roots for her incredible bounce back from carrying her twins.
She is a proud mom and loves to dress up her children Emme and Maximilian like miniature models. What can we expect from a designer and ultra-fashionista?
Although they have parted ways, Marc Anthony and Jennifer said that they are friends for life. Is this for the children? If so, this is a good idea because they have the rest of their lives to raise them.
Halle Berry, gave birth after she was 40 to daughter Nahla. Halle began her career in modeling and then acting. Now, she is a loving mom.
Halle, now 46, lives by a healthy diet. According to DailyGlow, Halle avoids sugars and processed foods due to having Type 2 Diabetes. While this disease can be fatal, Halle has managed it by sticking to vegetables and lean meats like chicken and fish.
The actress’ life isn’t all glitz and glam. She is a mom fighting for her daughter. Since the split from ex-boyfriend and father of her child Gabriel Aubry, they are now in a huge custody battle over their child. According to The Huffington Post, Halle has asked for the permission of the courts to move to Paris for the safety of her and her child from stalkers.
Also, Halle was ordered to pay $20,000 to Aubry to maintain the comfortable living arrangements for their daughter Nahla upon her visits with him. He is trying to gain full custody. Is this about the money?
Regardless of personal problems, Halle looks great and hopefully all goes well.
These women give hope to the younger moms. There is life after 40.
Never make excuses for yourself. You don’t need a personal trainer to live fit and fierce. With proper diet and exercise, moms can maintain a youthful and healthy lifestyle.
