The beautiful country star, Faith Hill, has a gorgeous voice. Who knew she has a gorgeous and strong bod, too. At age 41, she'll be on the cover of Shape magazine's December issue (on sale Nov. 10) showing off her amazing figure, and she has her daily exercise routine to thank.
In her 20s and 30s, Faith went through different phases with exercise. She'd work out right before a video shoot or tour, but didn't do much afterward. Then once she had three children and turned 40, she knew it was time for a lifestyle change. She had knee surgery last January, so she couldn't exercise for six months.

In fact, wearing a bikini on a magazine cover is my 41st birthday present to myself." What an amazing gift. Nothing's better than taking care of yourself, being healthy, and feeling confident about your body. I just hope Faith's picture wasn't Photoshopped like her photo on the July 2007 cover of Redbook was.
