When Kelly Preston gave birth to her third child last year aged 48, the actress and wife of John Travolta admits she didn’t expect to regain her figure. But regain it she has, and then some, dropping an impressive 39 pounds in less than twelve months. Her secret? Kirstie Alley.
Alley famously dropped 100 pounds and now looks about as good as any 60-year-old out there. The former Cheers actress has since started selling her own weight loss program, called ‘The Organic Liaison.’ And it was precisely this program that inspired Preston to shed her excess weight – Alley’s weight-loss regime relies on organic supplements, and has paid massive dividends for Preston.
Indeed, it took 49-year-old just a few months after son Benjamin Travolta was born in November 2010 to regain her pre-pregnancy weight. She revealed to People magazine:
“I lost 39 lbs., have more energy than I had 20 years ago – and I feel amazing. I’m going to be turning 50 next year – holy s***! Hey, 50 is the new 30. […] When I got pregnant at 48, I didn’t know if my body would bounce back.”
In fact, Preston was so impressed with Alley’s program that she went out there and landed her bad self a new gig – she’s now the spokesperson for Kirstie’s program. When asked about the program, Preston (with perhaps a dash of overstatement) enthused:
“It’s pretty much the most genius thing ever.”
And here’s another shot of Preston, taken last week:
