Bill Bellamy: Fatherhood & Making Fitness Fun
“It’s all about getting that sexy look,” comedian Bill Bellamy shares as he workouts. The actor, comedian and producer who gained fame for helping to coin the phrase “Booty Call”, Bill admits that he can’t always say the things he wants to say around his kids, since they mimic everything.
Bellamy shares, “I’m blessed to have a son and a daughter. I like to call them them AM and FM. With a boy and a girl, they are wired so differently; two different complete styles of people.”
Bellamy notes that his daughter, Bailey, is emotional, sensitive, talented and delightfully energetic, but delicate. Bellamy lovingly says, “She’s very delicate, so you have to talk to her in a certain way and encourage her in a certain way.”
When it comes to his son, Baron, Bellamy also describes him as sensitive, but with a different energy about him.
Bellamy shares, “Becoming a dad was the best thing that ever happened to me in my life. It gave me a sense of responsibility, love and accomplishment. Good or bad, they mimic everything you do. It’s been an amazing journey learning these two little new human children.”
Bill has kept his signature slim look for years and at the age of 40+, it seems as though Bill has the formula for staying fit and having fun while doing it.
Core Strengthening Exercises
“I like to do core strength exercises, not heavy weights,” explains Bill. “I’m not trying to be a bodybuilder. I just want to be a fit person.” Here’s a few examples:
Begin with left knee and left hand on the floor, right arm straight up. Extend right leg so your body forms a straight line. Pull right knee toward torso and right elbow toward knee. Straighten arm and leg. Repeat 10 times, then switch sides.
