Glamorous grandmother is mistaken for her son’s GIRLFRIEND

A glamorous grandmother with remarkably youthful looks has claimed she is regularly mistaken for her 24-year-old son’s girlfriend.

At just 42, housewife Lisa Fox, from Whitley Bay, Newcastle upon Tyne, could easily pass for a woman 20 years her junior despite welcoming her first grandchild eight weeks ago.

The mother-of-three doesn’t look much older than her 18-year-old daughter, which she puts down to regular gym sessions and body combat classes.

Lisa – whose children are aged 24, 18 and 12 – insists she doesn’t use any ‘fancy creams’ in her skincare regime apart from Oil of Olay, and credits her youthful looks to ‘hot water and lemon and a good helping of red wine’, she told MailOnline.

Last week, soap star Kym Marsh announced that she had become a grandmother at the age of 42 – and while Lisa’s friends presumed she would hate becoming a granny, she actually felt the ‘complete opposite’. 

Lisa said: ‘When I found out I was becoming a grandmother I felt a lot of people around me thought I would see it in a negative way, a misconception that I would feel I was getting old.

‘But it was the completely opposite, having a baby in the family is just such a joy, it in no way made me feel as if I was getting old.

‘If anything being younger is an advantage and means I have more time to spend with Archie. Also that I can run around and do a lot more activities with him.’

Lisa had her first son, James, at 18 and daughter Hollie at 25, before her youngest son Jack, 12, came along in 2007 – and in November last year, James, 24, and his partner welcomed baby Archie into the world.

Lisa, a former estate agent, claims she was always considered the ‘cool mum’ amongst her children’s friends with some even taking a shine to her in a long-standing joke with her eldest son.

She recalled: ‘I was a young mum at 18 and there was, https://pornzola.com/tags/fleshlight and still is, a certain stigma around young mums not doing much after they have had a baby.

‘[Falling pregnant] was a shock at the time as I was on the Pill, but I had very supportive parents who helped me along the way.

‘I was determined to work and picked up a bar job, running home every night to make sure James was fed.

‘Being a young mum meant I never really got used to having a social life or solely looking after myself, so that having children just seemed to slot in.

‘We are very close as a family and with a smaller age gap, it means [my children and I] have a lot of similar interests in music, films and fashion.

‘The kids even took me along to a Coldplay concert. I was always considered the cool mum and there has been a long-running joke with James’ friends that I’m a bit of a MILF.

‘I often get mistaken for James’ girlfriend and I even got a phone call from a friend who believed she had seen [James] walking down the road with another woman when it was in fact me.’

She said: ‘When I look back at my own grandparents, they wouldn’t have been able to look after young children, whereas I’m young enough to be able to run after them.

‘So many people start younger now and it’s nice to see some more glamorous grannies around like [Kym Marsh].’
