Martha Stewart has done it again, folks! The celeb has achieved yet another iconic feat—though her not-so-casual title as America's first female self-made billionaire is still up there—as the oldest cover star of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue, and my feelings about the news can best be summarized as:

Yep, the businesswoman was just revealed as one of four cover stars of the magazine's annual Swimsuit Issue alongside Megan Fox, Kim Petras, and Brooks Nader. Also included in this year's issue are fellow famous faces like Padma Lakshmi, Lauren Chan, Yumi Nu, and Georgina Burke. Here's more about the *chef's kiss* way Sports Illustrated Swimsuit made the announcement:

“When I heard that I was going to be on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, I thought, 'Oh, that’s pretty good, I’m going to be the oldest person I think ever on a cover of Sports Illustrated,'” Martha dished to the magazine in her cover story. “And I don’t think about age very much, but I thought that this is kind of historic...Age is not the determining factor in terms of friendship or in terms of success, but what people do, how people think, how people act, that’s what’s important and not your age.”

The bestselling author was photographed by Ruven Afanador in the Dominican Republic for the shoot and donned 10 stunning swimsuits, including a 🔥 ivory swimsuit by Monday Swimwear that I may or may not have purchased upon seeing.

Martha dropped the exciting news about being one of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover stars on NBC’s Today Show, dishing, “To be on the cover my age was a challenge. And I think I met the challenge.”

“For me, it is a testament to good living. And I think that all of us should think about good living, successful living and not about aging. The whole aging thing is so boring,” she added.

It's clearly Martha's world—we're just living in it!
