Throwback Thursday: Classic Beauty, Adrienne Banfield-Jones

OK so normally we honor a classic throwback beauty from Hollywood, the music industry, or another noteworthy arena that has launched our chosen diva into world-renowned fame.

But this week, we had to give it up to someone who blew us away!  Adrienne Banfield-Jones, also known as actress Jada Pinkett-Smith's mother, may not be super famous, but her photo was so inspiring and truly impressive, that we had to showcase this gorgeous gal and bestow her with some serious props!

Did you get a load of Jada's mom on Facebook and Instagram? In a candid shot taken by her granddaughter, Willow, this certified GILF was captured in a bikini, with a sickening six-pack, posted to her daughter Jada's Facebook with the following caption:

"Willow took this shot of her grandmother, my mother, emerging from the ocean today. She is 61! I wanna be her when I grow up:) Happy Friday..." 

Talk about a jaw-dropping photo! We thought this amazing pic was beyond worthy of honoring this lovely lady with a Thursday Throwback.

A little background on the glammed up grandma?  Well first things first, she obviously has amazing genes that continue to run in the family tree down to her daughter and grandchildren. 

Aside from her ageless look, great smile, and amazing skin, Banfield-Jones is also a woman of strength and survival. Having had Jada as a teenager, the teen mom also combated drug addiction and won the fight.

Jada's mom also shares her story with her granddaughter Willow:

I had mommy when I was very young and then I got addicted to drugs after mommy was born. It was a very difficult time for us growing up with her and Jada did not have the kind of life that you have now."

And despite of her mother's mistakes and struggles early on, actress Jada remains close with her mother and said she has used these past challenges as fuel for success: "I turned all of that into power. So I used those things as motivation," Jada said.

Doesn't she look absolutely amazing? Tell us what you think with a note below!
