She might look like a yummy mummy – but Jayne Clark is actually a 60-year-old GRAN.

Jayne says she is often mistaken for someone half her age, including her 29-year-old daughter’s sister.

But the nan-of-five has nine-year-old twins of her own, after using a surrogate to become a mum again at 51.

Jayne, from Esher, Surrey, prefers a night out on the tiles with daughter Juliet to an evening in front of the telly.

A former helicopter pilot, she claims her youthful looks are down to her young mindset and says her toyboy husband and family keep her on the go.

She said: “I drink lots of water, cleanse every day and exercise but I love champagne, I go out and when I go out, I stay out late.

“I lie in the sun and I only wear factor six.

“My nine-year-old twins keep me active, though, I rarely stop because I’m always doing something for them. They keep me young.”

Jayne, who lives with her third husband Martin, says the secret to staying youthful is a state of mind.

She said: “I’ve always liked fashion and clothes and I like to feel groomed.

“I don’t like to feel frumpy. If you think you are frumpy, I imagine you get that way.”

Jayne, who has three children from former marriages, decided to try for another baby with husband-of-twelve-years Martin, even though she was 50 at the time.

Jayne said: “My husband Martin had no children when we married, and because I was 14 years older than him, it seemed unfair not to try.

“I’d had two ectopic pregnancies in my previous marriages, so the only solution was to have a surrogate.”

The couple flew back and forth to California, where their surrogate and egg donor both lived.

Jayne admits having newborn twins, Maddie and Norah, now aged nine, in her 50s wasn’t easy.

She said: “It was still a shock. I couldn’t deal with the tiredness and I needed a routine to get into the swing of it.

“We had a nanny to help out as I was still working, but the twins keep me young as I’m constantly on the go.

“They are the first to criticise what I’m wearing or say ‘yes’ and ‘no’ to an outfit or my make-up.”

Before the twins arrived, Jayne enjoyed a luxury lifestyle as a commercial helicopter pilot.

She flew all over the world, and even met toyboy Martin when she was working in Morocco.

Unfortunately, “something had to give” for the jet setter, and she stopped flying shortly after.

She said: “It was the absolute love of my life.

“I would love to go back, but something had to give, and unfortunately, with the oil gas slump, there has been a knock-on effect with pilots and trips to the rigs.”

She has had her commercial licence since 1996, and decided to train as a pilot after just one ride in a helicopter.

But even though she’s had to give up flying, age is definitely not holding Jayne back.

Jayne added: “Sixty is the new 40. Age is not a barrier, and I’m not just going to sit back in a rocking chair.”
