Fitness legend Denise Austin and daughter Katie wow on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit runway together


American home workout legend Denise Austin has walked the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit runway hand-in-hand with her daughter, and they look amazing.

Austin, 65 wore a brown strappy bikini for the event, while her daughter Katie, 29, who is a swimsuit model for Sports Illustrated, wore a nude coloured bikini.

It was near impossible to tell the difference between the two, who looked just as fit, toned and tanned as each other.

What’s more, Denise was reportedly the oldest person to walk in Sports Illustrated’s coveted runway event, proving that age truly is but a number.

The event was part of Miami’s annual swim week, which sees over 70 swimwear designers showcase their latest lines and styles to be stocked on shelves for the summer.

Austin proved an exciting face to see on the runway, having rose to fame in the 1980s and ’90s with her successful TV shows, and her iconic “8-minute abs” workout.

The fitness guru has reportedly sold over 24 million exercise videos and DVDs in her time.

Speaking to Fox News Digital, Denise said the entire moment was “incredible”.

“It was the most incredible feeling in the world to walk the [Sports Illustrated runway] with my daughter Katie,” she said.

“The pure joy we shared together will last a lifetime… I am truly a proud mama!”

She also said she hoped her appearance on the runway could inspire other women watching.

Denise also took to the runway in a solo moment, wearing a strappy black one-piece with a sash around the waist.

On Instagram, she excitedly shared a number of photos from the day.
