Meet the hot mama from How I Met Your Mother! TV star Alyson Hannigan unveiled her super fit beach body during a family trip to Hawaii on Monday, Sept. 30. Rocking a sexy string bikini, the 39-year-old actress showed off her washboard abs while taking a dip in the Pacific Ocean.
Despite how she looks now, the actress hasn't always felt confident in her own skin. After the birth of her daughter Keeva in May 2012, for example, Hannigan tweeted, "I think by Hollywood standards I'm supposed to be in bikini shape now that my baby is 4 weeks old. My workout goal: Food drops in lap, not on belly." She also joked at the time, "I still haven't lost all the weight from my first daughter. Oh well."
All kidding aside, Hannigan works hard for her hot body. In a 2011 interview with Giuliana Rancic's FabFitFun, the American Reunion star said she prefers to burn calories through "swimming " or doing "something that can be fun and doesn't really feel like a workout."
Hannigan—also mom to Satyana, 4, with husband Alexis Denisof, 47—avoids her show's craft service table by chewing gum to curb cravings. Though "sugar" is her main vice, she strives to maintain a healthy diet. "I always love fruit, and now my trainer says to mix it with almonds," she shared. "I create fruit and nut combinations."
The former Buffy the Vampire Slayer star will certainly be in tip-top shape for her vow renewal ceremony. (Denisof proposed with a new diamond ring in July to celebrate 10 years of marriage.)
"This time we'll involve our children, which I'm so looking forward to," Hannigan said on The View Sept 17. "My 4-year-old is so excited because she gets to be the flower girl and the maid-of-honor. It's going to be very small, but lovely and intimate."
