LEEDS, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 11/04/12 -- Asda Money looks at modern day celebrity grandparents who are still as glamorous and active as ever.
Grandparenting has come a long way in the last generation and a growing number of over 50s are not conforming to typical stereotypes.
Here are just few glamorous grandparents breaking the mould.
Academy award winning actress Goldie Hawn has recently become a star-studded grandparent for the second time. The starlet who rose to fame in the 1960s has been out of the public eye for the last 10 years or so, however, her actress daughter Kate Hudson has recently had her second son making Goldie Hawn one very glamorous gran.
Still rocking out, Steven Tyler is probably one of the world's coolest granddads. The 64-year-old Aerosmith front man is still touring around the world with the American rock band. When he's not wowing crowds of thousands of adoring fans, he's playing the role of dad and granddad to Liv Tyler's son Milo. Proving that you're never too old to keep on rocking, Steve Tyler is touring in America over the 2012 summer period.(i)
Another rocking grandparent still proving that celebrity culture isn't all about the youth of today is Sharon Osbourne. Married to rocker Ozzy Osbourne, the couple turned grandparents earlier this year when their son Jack had his firstborn child, a baby girl.
When Sharon is not doting on the newest member of the family, she is busy being one of the judges on popular TV talent shows such as The X Factor and America's Got Talent passing on her musical wisdom to a new generation of stars.
Lionel Richie, Harrison Ford, Jim Carrey and Paul McCartney are just a few others to add to the list of modern day over 50's who are changing the image of grandparents.
A growing number of grandparents are continuing to work for longer, which is also stamping out the typical picture of grandparents.
Today's over-50s are more active and are continuing to break down traditional stereotypes about what it means to grow old. One area that you may want to consider is over 50s insurance to help cover any additional costs, such as funeral expenses.
