A 36-YEAR-OLD Bolton woman is being dubbed Britain’s most glamorous grandmother after appearing in national newspaper The Sun.
Carrie said: “It’s all really weird. Before all this, all I did was kickboxing and posting it to Instagram. All of a sudden, I’ve got 3,000 followers. I run an account where I post videos of me working out for my kickboxing and fitness tips.”
Carrie became pregnant with daughter Clarice when she was aged 18, and Clarice, who turned aged today, has a baby daughter of her own, aged five months.
Carrie has a simple message to people who have made negative online comments about her. She said: “People on the internet call me all sorts but I think they should check my Instagram, then judge me. I’m a manager at a media company and I help people who have been in similar situations to myself.
“My mum got me my boobs for my birthday, my teeth I saved up for and paid for myself, I’m not on benefits and I work hard at my job.”
She says people from as far as Turkey have been in touch, asking for tips.
One of being a grandmother aged just 36 is that Carrie can spend time with four generations of the family – her mother Jo, daughter, Clarice, and granddaughter Jess.
Carrie says that child Jess is the “best thing that ever happened to her” and that Clarice is now studying law at college.
