Vlogger Jake Ryan recently took to Twitter to wish his grandmother a happy birthday with a selfie. He even gave the photo a pretty hearts filter. Nothing out of the ordinary — except for the fact that no one actually believes the woman pictured is 65.
Today my granny is 65 ✨. Happy birthday granny. pic.twitter.com/opUzagEjcA

Yooo stop lying! She is not 65!

Ryan tells Yahoo Lifestyle that despite what the internet says, “she really is 65.” He says she is shy about her new internet fame. “She’s kind of timid about it, she’s not used to people knowing her age or what she looks like,” he says.
Grandma Jackie is a retired nurse and has two children and 3 grandchildren. Ryan says her secret to looking young is she “just really eats healthily. She doesn’t work out or anything.”
However, Ryan’s is not the only grandmother who has become a viral sensation thanks to her youthful looks. These other grandmothers are total knockouts for their age too.

Who can forget the iconic Baddie Winkle, who at 88 can rock a daring red swimsuit?
Or granny Wendy Ida, who is extremely fit for a 64-year-old and can put any 20-something to shame?
These gorgeous ladies are definitely an inspiration for many.
