Looking good, Heather Locklear

The 53-year-old actress flaunted her bangin' bikini bod while in Bora Bora earlier this month with ex-husband Richie Sambora and daughter Ava, 17. The friendly exes were vacationing with their only child to spend quality time as a family before the accomplished teen heads off to college. 

Locklear was photographed showing off her fabulous figure in a teeny tiny two piece, appearing relaxed and content as she rocked minimal makeup while wearing her hair in a natural style. The good-looking family of three was also snapped posing for a pic in the water, and clearly, Ava inherited mom and dad's enviable genes.

Sambora "and Heather wanted to spend quality time together with Ava as a family," the former Bon Jovi star's rep said in a statement to People. "They are celebrating her 4.2 GPA and her 11 scholarship offers from schools. She hasn't picked the final one yet. They are proud of her." 

Since the family getaway, Ava attended the Coachella Music Festival (where she even hung with her dad!) and has been touring colleges such as NYU, Fordham and Syracuse. 

This certainly isn't the first time Sambora and Locklear have reunited with their daughter. The amicable exes, who divorced in 2007 after 12 years of marriage, have previously been photographed together in Hawaii, and they were all smiles at their daughter's 16th birthday bash

"Time does heal old wounds. I mean, I still love Heather and I know she loves me," Sambora told People magazine last year. "She's the mother of my child, man. What can you say?"

He added of his daughter: "She and I are close and have a candid relationship...I'm really proud of her—she's just a joy." 

Since their split, Locklear has been romantically linked recently to plastic surgeon Dr. Marc Mani, and prior to that, she was engaged to former Melrose Place costar Jack Wagner before they ended their relationship in 2011 after dating for nearly four years.

Meanwhile, Sambora is currently dating singer-songwriter Orianthi Paraganis. Per People, Paraganis was not present for the family's Bora Bora vacation.
