She's a Grandma, Too?!

Alex Martin Dean
According to Alex’s star matriarch Alex Martin Dean is new to grandmotherhood. In the first episode of her docu-series Alex struggles with the idea of being someone’s grandma, after all the actress and producer is only 40 years old, but it doesn’t take long before Alex gets comfortable with being Grandma Dean.

Tina Knowles Lawson
Tina Knowles Lawson is proof that being a grandmother doesn’t mean limiting your sex appeal. In summer 2015, at 61, Mama Knowles graced the cover of Ebony magazine and made jaws drop. (Photo: Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images for Gabrielle's Angel Foundation)

Chaka Khan
Move it grandma! – And that she does! The queen of funk Chaka Khan might be a granny, but she’s still got a few moves, and she’s putting them to the test on Dancing with the Stars in its 21st season! (Photo: Imeh Akpanudosen/Getty Images for Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz)
Gladys Knight
The years have been generous to the ‘Empress of Funk’ who is still turning up in her 70’s – putting on shows and going on tour. She has over 15 grandchildren and is well into great grandmotherhood looking fabulous! (Photo: Marcus Ingram/Getty Images for Super Bowl Gospel)
Beverly Johnson
Beverly Johnson is undeniably one of fashion's most influential people, and although it's been more than 40 years since her modeling career first began and she's now a grandmother, not much has changed. The history making super model has still got it going on! (Photo: Jason Merritt/Getty Images for PSIFF)
Diana Ross
The ‘big hair don’t care’ grandma diva Diana Ross can still turn heads, and even though she’s just sliding into her 70’s, she’s looking more like a sophisticated older aunt to her grandkids than grandma. (Photo: Kevin Winter/Getty Images)
Tamela Mann
Sing your praises and you might just look like and have the go-getting energy of actress and gospel artist Tamela Mann who is a grandmother of eight.
