Everyone is in search of the fountain of youth but for people like Saida Ramirez, looking ageless is a genetic gift passed down by generations of eugenics and, well, chance.
Believe it or not: Saida Ramirez is 50 years young
Saida Ramirez shot to social media fame when she celebrated her 50th birthday on Friday 15 May. Before she posted the birthday pics on her Instagram page, she was a regular person.
However, as soon as we saw the ’50’ blown up foil number balloons behind her in the portraits she took, we were hit with a wave of confusion.
Surely Saida Ramirez was a person much older than the person in the picture. The lady we saw looks to be in her late 20s to early 30s.
It was as though the rug was pulled right from under our feet when Ramirez confirmed that she was the woman in the photos and that her family was celebrating her 50th birthday with her on Friday.
She has three children, the eldest looks older than her!
Everyone commenting on the photos was gobsmacked. There wasn’t a single wrinkle on her face. Even more, she — a mother of three — looks younger than her eldest daughter.
Of course, there were those who did not believe that any of this was true. So, Ramirez was forced to post her social security card and used a piece of cotton to cover her identity number.
This alone, one user claimed, was enough proof that Ramirez was really 50 years old, since a younger person would have blurred certain parts of the card.
It all made for a good laugh but Ramirez, much like 70-year-old youth-looking Vera Wang, are life’s oddities science can never explain.
