A 47-year-old grandma will compete against 18-year-olds at the Miss Maxim Australia competition this week.
Gina Stewart has more than 63,000 followers on Instagram and is a semi-finalist in the renowned beauty contest.
The single grandmother has two sons and two daughters, ages 27, 25, 23, and 4. She also has a 10-month-old granddaughter.
She credits a healthy diet and regular exercise for her age-defying looks.
“The only cosmetic procedure I had was my breasts 10 years ago,” Stewart told the Daily Mail. “I don’t use Botox or fillers as I believe in aging gracefully.
“But seriously, there’s no secret,” she added. “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.”
Stewart says she hopes to win so she can donate the $10,000 prize money to a worthy cause.
“I’m only hoping to win to help my best friend of 30 years as she’s had a stroke,” she said.
“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 says she is best known for her sense of humor and how much she cares “about people, friends, and family.”
She said if she could rule the world for a day, she would “make it so that chocolate, peanut butter, and Nutella would all have zero calories.”
