You know what they say: age is just a number! If Christie Brinkley can still turn heads and be a bonafide babe at age 62, then there’s absolutely no reason why a 56-year old can’t be featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
Meet Nicola Griffin, the oldest woman ever to appear in the SI special edition. As she told The Daily Mail, she was hesitant at first. “I was nervous because all the girls I was with were very young. I was anxious about what they were going to do with me. And they did put me in a gold bikini! But it was fine, I had no reason to nervous,” she said.
She also explained how her kids are taking the news that their 56-year old mom is suddenly a world-famous bikini model. “My children can’t believe it. They text me and they’re like, “Mom, is it true?” They keep asking me to double check. They both think it’s marvelous though. Their boyfriends are so excited too, which is great. There’s a lot of giggling going on.” she explained.
Age really is just a number.
