    Nicole Richie is one hot mama.

    Decked out in a red and blue bikini, the mother of two flaunted her fabulous figure while hitting the sand and surf recently in Santa Barbara, Calif., and easily reminded us all that Joel Madden is one lucky fella.

    But the Fashion Star mentor wasn't alone as she was accompanied by her adorable kids, Harlow and Sparrow.

    Mind you, this isn't the first time we've seen Richie rock some sexy swimwear.

    Earlier this year, the 31-year-old sported a teal two-piece while paddleboarding.

    And in April, she showed off her slender and toned body in a tiny black bikini as she dove into the water during a vacation in St. Barts.

    Of course, Richie's enviable figure doesn't come as a complete surprise.

    After all, the gal could be seen shaking her groove thing back in June when she appeared in a hip-hop workout video.

    "One hundred percent, all I wanted to be growing up was a backup dancer," Richie confessed in the clip. "I don't want to sing and have the focus on me. I just want to be out there, just grooving, you know, for two hours."

    Well, if this is the end result, we say, keep grooving, Nic!
