Celebrities seem to age at a different rate than the rest of us mere mortals.
Whether it’s from the surgeon’s blade or the magic of the business called show, many of our favorite stars remain magically timeless. They keep their fit physiques well into middle age, with beach-ready bodies in their 40's and beyond.
Mzansi has its own fair share of celebrities, who after having kids and managing successful careers, have retained smoking hot bodies. And as summer continues to blaze through the country, celebrities flaunted their bikini bods.
Fans went crazy when the following 40-somethings shared their bikini bodies with the world:
1. Basetsana Khumalo
Kumalo, 44, is a TV personality, businesswoman, and philanthropist. Her career began in 1990 when she was crowned Miss Black South Africa at the age of 16.
