Mary J. Blige is showing off her killer abs on the December cover of SHAPE magazine. Rocking a white bikini bottom and sports bra top, it’s hard to believe that the Queen of Hip Hip Soul is 42 years young!
Mary’s hubby of 10 years, Kendu Isaacs, shared how proud he is of his wife with his Instagram followers. “#Hardwork #Dedication @Themarkjenkins@daniellethechef @2daybefit is all you need,” he wrote. “I struggle with the dedication. Lol. Congrats Mary keep pushing!!!!!”
