Martha Stewart, 81, oldest Sports Illustrated swimsuit model ever, featured with transgender pop star

With ‘woke’ infecting the world of sports, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue is not what it once was.

Case in point, Martha Stewart is featured as one of four cover models, becoming the oldest woman to ever land a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover at the age of 81 — interestingly, the youngest of the four was a ripe 26. Naturally, there was a biological male featured as well.

“We are thrilled to announce that Martha Stewart, Megan Fox, Kim Petras and Brooks Nader are your 2023 SI Swimsuit Issue cover models,” Sports Illustrated announced — Kim Petras, a German pop star, is the second transgender person to be featured by the magazine.

This is not to say that Stewart didn’t look fabulous for being 81 years old.

“I am so thrilled to be on the cover of the @SI_Swimsuit issue! My motto has always been: ‘when you’re through changing, you’re through,’ so I thought, why not be up for this opportunity of a lifetime? I hope this cover inspires you to challenge yourself to try new things, no matter what stage of life you are in. Changing, evolving, and being fearless – those are all very good things, indeed,” she wrote in sharing the SI cover on Instagram.

“There’s no arguing that Stewart is an absolute icon. The Emmy Award–winning television show host and founder of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia reaches more than 100 million fans monthly and, throughout her illustrious career, has written 99 lifestyle books,” the magazine said of their octogenarian model. “She’s also a proud mother and grandmother and, now 81, is the oldest SI Swimsuit cover model in the publication’s history.

“While Stewart says she doesn’t think about age very often, she does admit that the opportunity to pose in a swimsuit for the cover of the 2023 issue is, in fact, historic.”

Appearing on the “Today” show, Stewart said on Monday that while it was a challenge to do the photo shoot, she felt like she “met the challenge.”

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

Stewart has been outspoken about not smoking and limiting alcohol as healthy lifestyle choices and also credits horse riding for keeping her active.

Stewart explained that she was approached in November 2022, which gave her almost three months to prepare for the end-of-January shoot.

“Trying new things is very good. Being fearless is very good. Don’t be afraid of anything,” she said.
