He told the Sunday Mirror: “We work out and look after ourselves because we want to sustain what we’ve got.
“Denise has got some exciting projects coming up on TV and we are both in a good place and looking forward to enjoying the sunshine in LA.”
He also spoke about how seven years ago no-one wanted his paintings, which start at £300k and take two weeks to complete, but now he is rushed off his feet.
Lincoln added: “Seven years ago no one wanted my art and now I’ve got agents all over the world and galleries screaming for my work all the time but I just can’t paint fast enough.”

It comes after Denise and Lincoln had fans in stitches after revealing she accidentally went out wearing a top “full of willies”.
The Loose Women star‘s husband Lincoln Townley playfully pointed out her faux pas as the couple enjoyed a night out.
The 61-year-old took to Instagram to share the joke, after the top she was wearing appeared to unintentionally have penis shapes covering it.
Posting the picture of her husband pointing out the phallic drawings on her clothes, she asked fans: “What do you see?? A nice funky pattern or rude things!”.
Her fans loved the joke and instantly commented on how they interpreted the odd shaped patterns.
One said: “Sorry got to agree with your husband!”
While this cheeky fan commented: “Well, now you’ve pointed it out…. (followed by a winky emoji).”
Another follower said: “Yes I can see it!”
The couple are regularly snapped enjoying each other’s company on a night out.
They got together after Denise divorced Benidorm star Tim Healy in 2012 after 23 years of marriage.
Denise – who is still on good terms with Tim – wed Lincoln, who is 15 years her junior, in 2013.
Speaking about the wedding to Hello magazine, Denise said: “This is about being together forever. There’s no one who can make me happier. This is my fairytale.”
It was around the same time that Denise started her weight loss journey and gave up the booze.
Earlier this month she revealed how a special diet helped her beat her sugar addiction and lose two stone.
The TV star opened up about how she developed an unhealthy relationship with food after she used it to replace alcohol.
She told Broccoli and Brains magazine: “Until I gave up drinking, I never really had a weight problem. I’d certainly never had a sweet tooth.
“But once I stopped drinking, I started getting massive sugar cravings and the weight started going on.”
However, the actress has admitted that it was her wedding to Lincoln Townley in 2013, that spurred her on to join LighterLife diet plan as their Celebrity Ambassador.
Denise lost almost two and a half stone in 9 weeks, by following the plan which included daily foodpacks, shakes, snacks and cognitive behavioural therapy which helped her understand why she was craving sugar.
Now a healthy size 12, the Loose Women panellist is confident enough to show off the results of her incredible weight loss on her social media.
In April Denise posted a picture as she stunned in a fuschia swimsuit while on holiday in Turkey, to celebrate six years with Lighter Life.
She wrote: “Celebrating 6 yrs with @lighterlife. Changed my relationship with food for ever. I still love fish and chips and pies but I make informed decisions when to have them!!
“When I gave up drinking I turned to food and quickly realised this could become a problem as I was eating like I’d been drinking.
“CBT and the groups taught me to stop my crooked thinking. I lost 2 stone in 2 months and have maintained ever since.
“And it means that you will have to endure more pictures of me in bathing costumes til I’m 97!!

Speaking about her weight loss methods to new! magazine last year, she said: “A fasting day is when you just eat four LighterLife meals.
“It works for me because I don’t count calories and every meal has all your vitamins and minerals. I feel better physically and mentally than I did in my twenties and thirties.
“Change your relationship with food – that’s how you’ll stop yo-yo dieting. I did it through cognitive behavioural therapy, because when I gave up alcohol, I was on a rocky road of replacing it with food.”
