The former reality television star has spent the last week holidaying with her pal and fellow yummy mummy Jessica Alba in the Caribbean paradise.

And Nicole was positively glowing as she worked up a sweat in the idyllic beach setting.
Later in the day she returned to the sand in a black triangle top bikini.
The shallow shores were safe enough for Nicole to keep her favourite fedora on, shielding her eyes with a pair of thick-rimmed black glasses.

She showed off her skills in the

Although, her figure has not always been so athletic.

Seven years ago Nicole caused shock waves as she hit the beach in a bikini, revealing a scarily skinny figure.

But these days the Fashion Star judge has maintained a far healthier physique, through vigorous exercise and balanced meal planning.
And her day of beach jogging showed off all her hard work.
Nicole has been holidaying with Jessica, 31, and a group of friends in the French West Indies,
However there was no sign of her husband Joel Madden and their two children Harlow, four, and Sparrow, three.
Nicole recently admitted she takes style tips from her children as they like to give her brutally honest feedback on her outfits.
She explained last month: 'I was wearing these polka-dot harem pants the other day and my daughter said to me, 'Mom, why are you wearing your pyjamas out?'
'I was like, oh boy, already getting an opinion.
'My son always comes up to me and gives me a hug if he thinks I look pretty.
'Their biggest compliment to me if I'm wearing anything with sequins on it, they tell me that I look like a princess.'
Nicole, who now keeps up a healthy gym regime after struggling with weight issues in the past, received another rather nice compliment after topping the Most Beautiful People list in Who, an Australian magazine.
The star spends quite a lot of time Down Under thanks to her Good Charlotte husband's role as a judge on local version of The Voice.
