Gina Stewart, a single mother of four kids (and a grandmother of one) is defying the world as she beats out young models for the Miss Maxim 2018 title.
Stewart is currently at first place in the competition; the semi-finals resume on April 17.
The 47-year-old has risen above hundred’ of competitors in the Maxim’s Finest competition. Her physical appearance does not give away her age, and fans are often shocked to find out how old the Instagram star really is.
The single mother has 4 kids, aged 27, 25, 23 and 4 respectively, and also recently became a grandmother of a now 10-month old grandchild, Daily Mail reported. She currently has 40,000 followers on Instagram.
When asked about the secrets to her ageless appearance, Gina revealed that she doesn’t get any botox or fillers. The only cosmetic procedure she has had is a breast augmentation that took her bra size up to 34E.
“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 said.
She said she believes that everyone has beauty and hopes to inspire other women to lift each other up instead of tearing each other down.
“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,” Gina stated.
If she wins the Maxim’s Finest competition, Stewart will donate the $10,000 to her friend who just had a stroke.
She explained, “I’m only hoping to win to help my best friend of 30 years as she’s had a stroke. 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.”
On her Maxim profile, Stewart talks about what she is best known for: “My sense of humor and how much I care about people , friends and family. Also my laugh and Instagram videos.”
She draws inspiration from people like her friend, who go through hard times and yet persevere. Talking about her inspirations on her profile, she writes, “People who do what they say they are going to do. 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.”
Stewart also talked about what she would do if she could rule the world for one day: “Make it so that Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Nutella would all have zero calories.”
