You’ve probably heard the saying “Age is nothing but a number…”, but most people don’t really know what it means.
Puspa Dewi—also known as Mama Hadi—seems to have figured out the puzzling phrase that vexes us all. Is age just a number? Or is it more a matter of how you feel?
From Indonesia, she became famous overnight when photos of her 50th birthday went viral. Her son, Danni Hadi, posted a picture of himself with Puspa holding a cake that had a big “50” candle on it.
At first, people were confused with the number because the people in the picture were not anywhere near 50!
Then the caption came:
“To my wonder woman: Happy Birthday Mom, thank you for giving your very best being a great mother. Stay pretty and awesome! Love you always! #mamahadi #hadigenetics”
It’s safe to say that the world was stunned with disbelief when they saw that the woman in the picture is actually half a century old—much less a mother of two handsome boys. Many thought she was still in her 20s or 30s.
Her first child—Dennis—graduated from Taylor’s Lakeside University in April 2017. Alex Daniel Haldi, her second born, is in Singapore pursuing tertiary studies.
Both of her sons use the hashtag #mamahadi or clearly mention that the lady was their mother in their captions whenever they posted pictures with their mother. It is because, at first glance, the pictures looked like a couple rather than mother and son.
Mama Haldi’s attractive physique and teenage-like face is the result of her regular workouts. Her Instagram is filled with various pictures and videos of workout routines such as dancing, aerobics, Zumba, and even body weight exercises.
Check out the video that the Haldi family posted on YouTube featuring her workout routine.
The entire family is into healthy food. They run a business in Jakarta called Hadi Kitchen serving only healthy food. They believe that proper diet is more vital than working out.
In many of Puspa’s posts, she emphasizes having a positive attitude as being the key to leading a healthy and happy life.
She wrote: “I live a very joyful life, with a lot of laughter and good times. Happy weekend everyone!”
She also encourages people to join her in leading a healthy lifestyle.
“I’m 50 years old and still look young, healthy and fit. I consume nutritious healthy food every day. Let’s join the healthy lifestyle and the results will show!”
A small number of haters attributed her good looks to riches or being a stepmother to the boys. However, the majority of Internet feedback was positive, leaving wonderful comments such as “What a beautiful family with great genes!” and “This woman is truly someone to look up to!”
Puspa is not only an inspiration for an awesome mother but also an example to follow for a healthy lifestyle.
At 50, she is a living example that you don’t need money—only effort, determination, and a positive attitude to achieve beauty—both inside and outside.
Check out some of her amazing pictures.
