At age 69, Musk told The New York Times she's the oldest brand ambassador CoverGirl has used in a campaign. She is also mother to three children, one of whom is Tesla CEO and inventor Elon Musk.

CoverGirl has got an exceptional model as its brand ambassador.

CoverGirl just added Maye Musk to its long line of brand ambassadors.

CoverGirl also reciprocated Maye Musk's feelings and replied with the words, "We totally agree with you @mayemusk... beauty is simply ageless and we are SO honored to call you a #COVERGIRL!"

Earlier today, the silver-haired beauty tweeted: "I'm so excited to say that I'm now officially a CoverGirl, at 69!"

Musk began her modeling career when she was 15 years old, living in South Africa.

Oh yeah, and she just so happens to be billionaire-rocket-scientist Elon Musk's mom. "Beauty is for all ages".

CoverGirl Senior Vice-President Ukonwa Ojo was happy to welcome Muskto Covergirl Wednesday amid a brand effort to promote diversity, including the signing of Issa Rae, Ayesha Curry, Nura Afia, the first hijab-wearing CoverGirl, and James Charles, the first "CoverBoy". "I've had the benefit of working with a lot of wonderful artists through the years, and it's a fascinating process: you start as a blank canvas and then a transformation occurs, but there's always a very real and honest piece of me there, too". "She is an affirmation of the power and importance of diversity and inclusivity in the world of beauty". "Who knew, after many years of admiring the gorgeous Covergirl models, that I would be one at 69 years of age?"

She's been modelling for five decades now, but it's her latest gig that has the world talking about Maye Musk. It just shows, never give up. "Beauty truly is for women of all ages, and I can't wait to take you all along this incredible journey with me!"
