Reality TV star Nicole Murphy showed off her unbelievably fit physique in a slinky gown at the 2013 amfAR New York Gala to kick off New York Fashion Week on Feb. 6.
Amazingly, the 5-foot-9 blue-eyed stunner is the mother of five kids, whom she had during her 13-year marriage to actor Eddie Murphy. Not surprisingly, Nicole, 44, is a fitness fanatic who makes eating well and exercising a top priority.
"I work out at least four to five days a week and have made it a lifestyle so it fits into my routine even when traveling," Murphy told FollowTheLita. "I do at least three types of stomach/ab exercises during all my workouts."
Nicole, who stars on the reality TV show "Hollywood Exes," is engaged to ex-NFL star Michael Strahan, who co-hosts "Live with Kelly and Michael" with Kelly Ripa.
Murphy, a former model, varies her workouts to keep from getting bored, and does a combination of free weights, sprint intervals and Tae Bo. Her diet typically centers around chicken, salads and oatmeal.
Nicole, who has always been active and fit, says there's no secret for looking good other than a healthy diet and exercise.
"Exercising gives you a better opportunity to live free of a lot of the pains and restrictions associated with inactivity," she says. "Doing a little every day goes a long way to extending your life for yourself and your family. Plus, who wouldn’t want to look nice in a pair of jeans?"
