For her 70th  birthday, Los Angeles-based chef and fitness expert Babette Davis posted photos of herself on Instagram, looking stunning in a black two-piece tankini and strappy heels.

Each day leading to her birthday, Davis, a motivational speaker and a doting great-grandma, posted seven of her photos (she titled “Seven at Seventy”) shot by fashion photographer Dino Mosley, where she reveals a great body and impeccable skin.

She captioned one of the photos, “Here is my second 70th birthday photo to admire, inspire and realize how incredibly intelligent the human body is and how it will ALWAYS respond to self care and LOVE!”

In another post, she said, “I have so much to be grateful for. I am healthier now than I was when I was thirty and my lifestyle is conducive to maintaining my health.”

In an interview, Davis reveals that it was in her forties when she started taking charge of her body after living a “typical American diet and led a mostly sedentary life.”

Davis shares on social media fitspo videos of her working out and doing physical activities. For her fitness regimen, she tries to work out four times a week—a day for a 90-minute workout in the gym and the rest on her own.

She follows a vegan diet and shares recipes on her social media accounts and through her online cooking classes. A beloved figure in the vegan community, Davis co-owns a vegan restaurant in Inglewood, California called Stuff I Eat.

Chef Babette Davis enjoys being 70. As she said in one of her posts on Instagram, “Love it (your body) and treat it right and you’ll feel good as you move through life.”
