Cindy Crawford embraces age

Cindy Crawford is "embracing" turning 50.

The supermodel will celebrate the milestone birthday next February and insists she is happy to age gracefully.

She told PEOPLE magazine: "Women like Helen Mirren and Jane Fonda, they look amazing and they look appropriate. They look amazing but they're not trying to look 30. I don't want to be trying to compete with my 14-year-old daughter [Kaia Gerber] - because I would lose!

"I always thought, 'When can I just let it all go?' It's just never. There is no age now! It was the aspect of embracing turning 50 and celebrating the past, but at the same time I am embracing where I am."

Meanwhile, the 49-year-old beauty previously praised her children - Kaia, 14 and Presley, 16 - for making her feel at ease with ageing.

She shared: "I do and I'm really jealous. No, I'm joking. I always tease her, 'You have my old legs. Give them back ... What do they say? Youth is wasted on the young.

"I think honestly I am probably the hardest on myself. It's beautiful as a mother to watch your children grow up and become whoever they're going to be and I think that makes it easier for me to watch myself also getting older."
