The CBS This Morning host took to Instagram to post a side-by-side shoot taken during a Mexican vacation with her niece, Mekenzye. The first photo shows the younger woman posing in a red bikini, scuba goggles perched on her forehead. Click through and it’s 64-year-old King holding the same confident pose as she proudly shows off her curves in a colorful striped swimsuit.
King’s caption would no doubt make best friend Oprah Winfrey proud. The journalist dubbed her photos a “celebration of cellulite cottage cheese thighs” and was “happy to report no Photoshopping allowed!”
A second set of photos shows her niece in a red one-piece, while King rocks a pale blue swimsuit with ruched details and a ruffle down the front.
Her photos and body-positive message have impressed commenters, with model — and fellow self-love advocate — Ashley Graham responding, “You look fabulous Gayle!”
“You inspire all of us ladies, Gayle!!!” added a 63-year-old fan. “Never Too OLD! I have to keep telling myself this.”
“You held your own Gayle!” read another comment, while another follower wrote, “love the realness.”
