Washington, August 17: The Spice Girls displayed their trimmed figures at the spectacular Olympics closing ceremony despite becoming mothers and staying away from the limelight for so many years.
Sixteen years after the girls band hit it big with their smash single ‘Wannabe,’ the five females – Victoria Beckham, 38, Geri Halliwell, 40, Emma Bunton, 36, Melanie Chisholm, 38, and Melanie Brown, 37 – looked sexier than ever performing in front of the world’s most talented athletes and millions of viewers.
Fashion designer Beckham – mom to Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 9, Cruz, 7, and Harper, 13 months – recently confessed that she loved “to snack,” and her healthy go-to treats include fresh fruit and coconut water.
After years of yo-yo dieting, Halliwell – mom to Bluebell, 6 – has developed a smarter way to stay in shape.
“Geri is all about yoga, healthy eating – and clothes that flatter her shape,” Us magazine quoted a source saying.
The ‘Look at Me’ hitmaker, who wore a Suzanne Neville design at the Olympics, “is finally comfortable in her own skin. She feels better than ever,” the source said.
Meanwhile, Bunton, mom to Beau, 5, and Tate, 15 months, has credited her slimdown to three-times-a-week workouts.
“Emma likes running on the treadmill. She’s very happy with her body these days!” a source said.
After giving birth to daughter Scarlet in 2009, Chisholm – who is known for her tracksuits and trainers – says she feels “more feminine” than ever before.
The ever-fit star added that she had a blast during the one-night reunion with her bandmates, in which they sang ‘Wannabe’ and ‘Spice Up Your Life’ atop London cabs.
“We had the best time!” she said.
And perhaps no Spice Girl is as dedicated to fitness as Brown, mom to Phoenix, 13, Angel, 5, and Madison, 11 months, she hikes and reportedly does 600 sit-ups a day, making it easier to slip into skintight bodysuits like the Zuhair Murad design that she chose to wear on August 12.
“Mel does one- to two-hour treadmill workouts with playlists made by DJ Lindsay Luv,” a source said. (ANI)
