Looking at DeeAnn Donovan, your first impression might be that she's in her late 20s, drives a small, fast luxury car and certainly has no kids. You'd be dead wrong on all counts. Believe it or not, she's in her late 30s, has three children'her oldest is 13'and, get this, drives a 7,000-pound pickup truck with a six-inch lift. Oh, and did I mention she's a knockout? DeeAnn is living proof that a fit lifestyle, a go-for-it attitude and a little country living thrown in for good measure make an unbeatable antiaging combination. Okay, enough banter.
