Meet the grandmother who is slaying 18-year-old bikini models to claim the Miss Maxim 2018 crown
Life sure is hard for those who have won the genetic lottery. You know, with their killer good looks and enviable physique, they face a lot of problems on a daily basis. I mean, who can deal with having their friends, colleagues and family members constantly reminding them of how beautiful they are?
Now, while this is certainly the life that one age-defying grandmother leads, Gina Stewart is also committed to utilising her looks for a good cause. The model, who has four children, has been knocking out hundreds of women half her age for the title of Miss Maxim 2018. And with her glowing complexion and generally youthful appearance, people were nonplussed to discover just how old she really is...
The Aussie is one of the finalists in the running for this year's Miss Maxim competition. And while she has four children (two sons and two daughters, respectively aged 4, 23, 25 and 27) as well as a 10-month-year-old granddaughter, she doesn't look her age at all. Yes, Gina - who has over 42,000 followers on Instagram - is 47-years-old.
The model, who became a grandmother last year, has now revealed the "secrets" to her ageless complexion. "The only cosmetic procedure I had was my breasts 10 years ago. I don't use Botox or fillers as I believe in ageing gracefully," she told Daily Mail Australia.
"But seriously, there's no secret. I think everyone is beautiful. I'm not doing this for attention as I hate it. I'm just trying to make a difference to inspire women not to rip each other apart."
"Life is too short for judgement. Embrace your age and your curves, it never killed anyone," she added.
Gina is competing for the title of Miss Maxim 2018 for a great reason. She revealed that if she wins, she will donate the $10,000 prize money to a friend who recently suffered a stroke. "I'm only hoping to win to help my best friend of 30 years as she's had a stroke," she asserted. "If I win Maxim, I would be donating to her to help with her recovery. I'm just hoping to raise awareness for stroke victims."
When quizzed on where she draws her inspiration from, Gina revealed that much of it comes from the friend in question. "People who still have the strength to keep going and be positive even after going through hard times. People that never give up really I find the most inspirational." She added that she also has great respect for "people who do what they say they are going to do."
Looks certainly don't mean everything to the single mother. On her Maxim profile, Gina listed that her "best features" include her "sense of humour", how much she "cares about people, friends and family", as well as her laugh.
She also revealed that she's quite the foodie. When asked what she'd do if she could rule the world for a day, she replied that she would "Make it so that Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Nutella would all have zero calories" - I mean, we're with you there girl.
We certainly wish Gina all the best for the competition, but either way, it's evident that she's doing pretty great already.
