Kelly Ripa & 7 Other Celebs Who Gave Us Rare Glimpses of Their Backyard Pools
Thanks to social distancing, our backyard pool has become the closest thing we can get to an escape from reality. The same goes for celebrities, who have been spending more time at home and, in turn, sharing rare photos of their pads. This includes everything from rustic kitchens to infinity pools that put our local Marriott to shame.
For our own little mental vacation, we rounded up a list of the best celebrity backyard pools (from Kelly Ripa to Retta). Keep reading for all the details.
2. Gabrielle Union
Gabrielle Union was photographed enjoying a swim in their family’s pool, which seemingly goes on forever. It’s surrounded by a chic seating area, complete with matching patio furniture.
3. Reese Witherspoon
If you look past the begging dog, you’ll get a rare glimpse inside Reese Witherspoon’s backyard, which features stunning hues of green. However, the real stars of the show are her gorgeous pool and adjacent jacuzzi. *Swoon*
4. Kate Upton
Kate Upton shared a photo of herself sitting next to her glassy pool, which is surrounded by white tiles and modern patio furniture. The model captioned the post, “Thirsty Thursday is so much better when pizza is involved…Harley agrees.”
Retta gave us an inside look at her backyard project, which consisted of gutting the entire pool. The Good Girls star replaced the deck’s tan stone with a stunning white marble and added a black shiny tile around the pool and jacuzzi. Eye-catching indeed.
6. Vanessa Hudgens
Vanessa Hudgens recently updated her backyard by adding subtle artwork on a nearby retaining wall. She wrote, “@thecartorialist came over today and transformed my boring white walls to a chic moment.”
7. Simone Biles
Simone Biles’s pool would satisfy even the likes of Michael Phelps. It features an elongated shape, a large entry step and surrounding greenery. Basically, it’s the perfect background for selfies.
8. Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson couldn’t resist taking a dip in the pool with her daughter, Maxwell (8), who’s wearing a mermaid tail. (Why not?) The singer’s yard has a breathtaking view, which is outlined by mountain silhouettes.
