Gayle King is showing off what she’s got in some stunning body-positive pics that reveal a side of her that not many of her fans have seen.
The 64-year-old shared some awesome content to her Instagram that featured photos of herself and her niece, Mekenzye Schwab. The funny thing was that the CBS “This Morning” host was recreating the exact poses her niece had previously done.
“Tradition continues ! Photo shoot w/Fav niece @mknzschwb in Mexico ! swipe left for celebration of cellulite cottage cheese thighs…happy to report no photoshopping allowed!” Gayle wrote in the caption of her post.
The first set of photos showed the young Mekenzye in a two-piece swimsuit and a pair of goggles, followed by Gayle sporting a rainbow one-piece while wearing the same eyewear and sitting in the same position.
The second series showed King’s niece in a red low cut swimsuit with tropical plants and the ocean in the background. The only difference between Mekenzye’s and Gayle’s photos was that King wore a blue one-piece and did not use a filter.
The photos of Gayle showed the host in traditional influencer poses and showed off her rocking body. The response to her hilarious post was overwhelmingly positive and gained the approval of fans and her famous friends.
“You look fabulous Gayle!??” Ashley Graham commented on Gayle’s post while filmmaker Ava Duvernay left several praise hands ??????emojis.
It is well known that Gayle is good friends with Oprah and all of the staff at Oprah Magazine. The Digital Director of the mag, Arianna Davis, commented on Gayle’s post and suggested the 64-year-old did it better than her niece.
“Sorry @mknzschwb but Auntie Gayle might’ve outposed you this time around ???,” Davis said.
Mekenzye replied and agreed with her statement, “@ariannagab she out poses me every time ?? i’m just here to serve as inspiration at this point.”
Last November, Gayle copied her much younger niece by laying on a tree for a bizarre pose when they were on their annual family vacation. This series featured King laying in a hammock and sitting on some rocks that were surrounded by the ocean.
Gayle stated that she loves to “play along” and revealed that not every family member wants to partake in the tradition.
“This GORGEOUS girl is my favorite niece @mknzschwb! She picks the pose & I play along .. fav daughter & fav son do not approve. And refused to come .i say Life is short have fun! she’s 22 ..I’m 63.. so who did it best? Swipe left I can take it …wish I had a two piece suit…” she wrote in last year’s post.
We cannot wait to see next year’s poses. Keep working it, Gayle!
Gayle’s thousands of followers on Instagram showed the TV star a lot of love and sounded off in the comments.
“I love these real body posts as they inspire all women to be proud of your body at any age and any stage,” one follower commented while another said, “You are a brave and wonderful person! ?????”
Her post was flooded with looking eyes ?emojis and fire ?emojis and one fan said, “You look amazing Gayle ✨✨✨.”
One particular fan teased her niece a little and praised King by writing, “Gayle you look awesome in both bathing suits! Let’s see if your favorite niece could rock those suits when she hits your age!”
