Smiling at the camera and sharing a hug, both Angela and Arielle Paul look the very picture of glowing good health .
In Angela’s case, this is particularly true. The author and life coach – originally from Yorkshire – is 64-years-old.
Showcasing her “timeless” bond with daughter Arielle with a gorgeous photo on Instagram , Angela wrote: “Mother/ daughter eternal, timeless love, joy and gratitude. I adore my lovely amazing daughter Arielle so very much and so proud of her.”
Cue, huge amounts of disbelief, with large numbers of people incredulous at the fact that Angela, who now lives in L.A., has a 34-year-old daughter.
“Who is who?” one fan gushed.
“Sisters,” another one added.
“You two look more like sisters,” agreed someone else.
“Mother/daughter?! More like sisters! Both fabulous!” read another comment.
So what’s Arielle’s secret?
Luckily for us all, she shared some wisdom on ageing (or not) on her Facebook page , crediting dancing with helping to make her “feel alive and youthful and to feel sexy”.
“The other thing is I really try not to think about the age number too much,” she explains.
“It’s all about getting on with life, and not getting old in your head first – that’s what happens with a lot of people.
“They think about ageing too much, instead of actually just living their life.
“Yes, it’s hard to see the ageing of our bodies and the passing of our youth, and yet the older I get the more tenderness I feel towards my own aging process,” she continued.
“I look in the mirror and I see both the young girl I once was and the wise elder I one day hope to be.”
Also lots of sleep and water will help too, people!
