Over 40 & Fabulous! 20 Celebrities Who Get Better with Age! How Do They do It?

Fabulous 40s!

These 20 fabulous and glamorous celebrity moms prove that age is merely just a number. There was once a time when after a woman turned 40 she was considered to be over-the-hill, but now women are proving that at 40, the party is just getting started! “Forty doesn’t mean what it did a generation or two ago,” Economist John Shoven of Stanford University said. “When a woman turns 40, she is not the same age as when her mother turned 40. She’s in better health. She has a lower mortality risk. She has more healthy years to look forward to. A 40-year-old today, relative to, say, a 40-year-old in 1960, is going to live approximately five or six years longer.”

Yes, this is not our mother’s 40!

Each one of these women are an inspiration and are great examples of how exercise, eating well, and just taking care of yourself will give you amazing results.

Check out these twenty stunning 40-somethings and find out their beauty secrets, and how they are so fabulous in their 40s right here!
