Oprah’s BFF, Gayle King, Stuns in Swimsuit at 69! –

News anchor and host Gayle King is a swimsuit model at the ripe age of 69. She accomplished by being on the cover of Sports Illustrated. And even as an older-aged woman, she’s looking pretty good showing off her toned body.

The CBS News anchor was among 4 women tapped to appear on different covers of an upcoming SI issue. But Gayle is the oldest out of them all and all the others are veteran models including Chrissy Teigen, Hunter McGrady and Kate Upton.

The 69-year-old cover star looked stunning in an emerald one-piece. The style had halter straps, a sweetheart neckline, and a whole bunch of lined ruffles, a detail that makes pretty a piece of clothing instantly more flattering.

King’s ex-husband, William Bumpus, can’t get enough of her “fantastic” Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover.

“Well, I can mark off one more item on my highly unlikely-to-ever-happen bucket list! My teenage fantasy of hooking up with a Sports Illustrated Model has finally come true,” the lawyer wrote in a statement to Page Six Sunday.

“WOW! Bravo to you Gayle … You Look Fantastic! Bravo to Sports Illustrated for selecting YOU!”

Bumpus — who was married to King from 1982 to 1993 — added that his ex has always “been Beautiful Inside and Out (sic).”

“I appreciate you more and more as time goes on, as a trailblazer, and also when I see our phenomenal kids and grandkids!” he continued. “I am proud of you and continue to wish you nothing but happiness. Enjoy!”

William and the “CBS Mornings” host, 69, share two children: daughter Kirby Bumpus, 38, and son William Bumpus Jr., 37.

King’s photos and body-positive message have inspired other body-positive comments, with model — and fellow self-love advocate — Ashley Graham responding, “You look fabulous Gayle!”

“You inspire all of us ladies, Gayle!!!” added a 63-year-old fan. “Never Too OLD! I have to keep telling myself this.”

“You held your own Gayle!” read another comment, while another follower wrote, “love the realness.”
