This photo of Jada Pinkett’s mother has somewhat “broke the internet” ever since the actress posted it on her Facebook page the other day. The photo features Jada’s mother, Adrienne, in a bikini surfacing from the ocean with abs for days.
Cha who needs Baywatch? This woman is 61 years old and doesn’t look a day over 30.
Jada says she wants to be just like her mother, but chile who wouldn’t? She posted the following caption on her Facebook page:
Willow took this shot of her grandmother, my mother, emerging from the ocean today. She is 61!
I wanna be her when I grow up:)
Jada is 43 and well on her way to looking just like her mother at 61.
Earlier this year Jada revealed some of her health and fitness secrets to Health Magazine. Here are a few tips on how she stays so fit.
It’s funny—my cardio workout varies. If I have a heavy carb week, I’ve got a heavy cardio week. I tell people all the time, “You can eat whatever you want, as long as you’re willing to put the work in,” and that’s a thing I had to learn. So I make sure I do something physical every single day. But that doesn’t mean you have to go to the gym and freakin’ kill yourself! I do 20 minutes of cardio a day. Everybody’s thinking you gotta be in the gym for an hour and a half. Literally, I’m never in the gym longer than 45 minutes. Just be consistent—that’s it! It doesn’t necessarily have to be intense, and you will see a difference. Just go out of your house and do a brisk walk! Every night, my mother and I take the dog and just walk, and that’s a ritual for us.
My husband’s trainer started giving me diet tips, and he dismissed the myth that more carbs means you’re going to be unhealthy. What I realized is that I wasn’t eating enough of the proper foods like pasta and rice. I needed more of a high-carb situation in order to facilitate the amount of calories I burn. That meant more fruits, meant a lot of vegetables because those are carbs as well and, if I want, some pasta or toast or English muffins.
This photo resembles the one of her mother above.
