A former Playboy pin-up model is so keen to make her daughter follow in her footsteps that she is training her to become a topless model. Annette Edwards even arranged for 16-year-old daughter Paige to pose for a saucy photoshoot when she was just 14 years old.
The 60-year-old insists that becoming a glamour model would be a brilliant career for the teenager - who has wanted to pose topless since she was 10.
The grandmother of 10, who is also a great-grandmother, splurges 400 pounds-a-month on lingerie, fake tan, manicures and heels for Paige. Edwards even coaches her daughter to pose provactively and the pair have posed for lingerie shoots together.
Edwards, from Worcester, has had 18,000 pounds worth of surgery including a facelift, cheek and chin implants, Botox and a boob job boosting her from a 36D to a 36DD. And the model mum has not ruled out a possible breast augmentation for Paige when she turns 18, as she has not developed bigger boobs.
"She's not too young or vulnerable as long as I'm with her," the Mirror quoted Edwards as telling Closer magazine. "Girls in clubs wearing next to nothing are in more danger. "There's nothing wrong with glamour modelling, as long as it's tasteful, like Page Three and Playboy. "It makes you feel sexy and powerful - and Paige is a natural."
"We plan to pose topless together when she's old enough, too," Edwards said. Instead of admitting the thought of posing topless with Annette might be "embarrassing", Paige claims her mum is "an inspiration".
"I've always wanted to be a glamour model. "I enjoy the compliments and being in front of the camera. "When I'm 18, I'll go topless - the money's good," she added
