The couple recently shared photos on vacation where she flaunted her beach body and tattoos. Fans couldn't help but gush about her beauty and how the lovely couple was living their best lives.
Bobby Brown's wife, Alicia Etheredge, is not letting age hold her back from proudly showing off her curvy body in new beach photos with her husband. They are on a vacation marathon based on her recent posts shared on Instagram.

BROWN'S RELATIONSHIP WITH HOUSTON
Brown was married to the late Whitney Houston from 1992 to 2007. They were in a controversial and abusive marriage, which brought about a daughter named Bobbi Kristina Brown.
Houston passed away in 2012 caused by drowning due to coronary artery disease and intoxication. Unfortunately, just three years later, their daughter died due to drug intoxication.
HIS MARRIAGE TO ETHEREDGE
By 2008, Brown made Etheredge his manager, as he trusted her capabilities, having previously worked with singer Macy Gray. Soon after, they started dating.
In 2010, just three years after Brown's divorce from Houston, he proposed to Etheredge during a performance at Funk Fest in Jacksonville, Florida. They wed two years later in a ceremony in Hawaii.
THEIR WEDDING CEREMONY
Their wedding coincided with a tour he had in the state with his R&B group New Edition. Etheredge wore a white strapless gown during their wedding, and Brown wore a red suit jacket and pants, sneakers, and a Hawaiian lei on his neck.
Brown's older children were all in attendance except his daughter Bobbi Kristina. At the time, she was shooting a reality TV show in New York.

FINDING EACH OTHER AGAIN
While their relationship started after his tumultuous marriage with Houston, Brown once revealed that he met Etheredge years back when he was a teenager. They maintained a close relationship, and Etheredge was a guest at his wedding.
He revealed that he does everything for his children, including Bobbi Kristina and Bobby Junior who both have passed on.

A RELATIONSHIP CENTERED ON FAITH
Now, they are happy parents to three children named Cassius, Bodhi, and Hendrix. Speaking about how they've made their relationship work, Brown once shared he is grateful to have a "faith-driven" connection with his wife. He said:
“My happiness definitely comes from us falling in love, me finding real love, me finding what I needed in life to transition to the next level of the man I’m going to be. She's my peace. She's my muse."

FINDING INSPIRATION FOR HIMSELF
Aside from being his partner, Brown also credits his wife for giving him the inspiration he needs to bring back his passion for music and for teaching him to love himself again.
Although he admittedly had a history of addictions, she helps him stay on track through numerous self-care methods, which they both practice.
HIS STINT ON "THE MASKED SINGER"
Earlier this year, the New Edition member opened up on "The Masked Singer" about the tragedy of losing two children, which he continues to cope with up until today.
While on the show, he was unveiled as the Crab and was eliminated alongside Tamera Mowry in an early episode. There, he revealed that he does everything for his children, including Bobbi Kristina and Bobby Jr, who have passed on. He said:
"I just felt it was essential that I come out here and do it for my little ones... My five-year-old, my four-year-old and my 11-year-old, you know, to let them see that their dad is still, you know, kicking."
HIS SON BOBBY JR.'S DEATH
Bobby Jr. died in his California home from a drug overdose, something surprising for the family as he was not a frequent user. His stepmother revealed that one of their kids, Cassius, looked up to him a lot, so it was tough explaining his death.
Brown felt somewhat responsible for his kids being exposed to such lifestyles and now believes he must remind people of the risks of taking drugs. After all, both of his children's deaths are because of using such substances.
LENDING EACH OTHER SUPPORT
The same way Etheredge has given Brown her support through the years, he too has helped her cope with her diabetes diagnosis. She suffered seizures twice because of this, the first being in a Florida Hotel room while Brown had a show.
Shortly after Bobbi Kristina's funeral, Etheredge suffered another seizure at a post-funeral repast hosted by Brown's brother Tommy in Georgia. Both were caused by her diabetes diagnosis, discovered while she was pregnant with Cassius.
MAKING THE MOST OF LIFE
Nowadays, Brown and Etheredge are enjoying everything life has to offer. The proud wife has been sharing snippets of their recent beach vacations, which had her sporting animal-print bikinis that showed off her flat stomach.
Her followers made sure to shower her with compliments, praising her for her beauty and for making the most out of the lives they live as husband and wife.

ENJOYING THEIR VACATIONS
It comes with no surprise that a lot of Etheredge's photos show her and the rest of their family by the beach, as they did get married in Hawaii. She enjoys the sun, posting photos of herself lounging on the sand while basking under the sun.
In some photos, Brown can also be seen enjoying the sunlight beside his wife. Their tattoos are visible in most of their photos, with both of them having large tattoos on their arms.

Their vacations have brought them to many different places, be it Las Vegas, the Hamptons, or even abroad, to Switzerland and other European countries.
Throughout their nine years of marriage, Brown and Etheredge have constantly gone on vacations, sharing beautiful moments with their fans. The same way the New Edition member works hard, they enjoy the fruits of his labor with their children, whether by the beach or in luxurious hotels.
