Molly Sims :: Robert Erdmann/SI
Arnold Palmer once said, "It is a rare and difficult attainment to grow old gracefully and happily." Molly Sims is among those Palmer was speaking of. The former SI Swimsuit model turns 40 next month and the special day, as she so delicately put, "makes me want to vomit in my mouth."
It's not all doom and gloom for Sims - her son Brooks will turn 12 months old shortly after so she has something to be excited about. And like most new moms, she can't get over how fast her son is aging: "Brooks is teething badly," Sims told US Weekly. "We have six teeth. We're very early to have [that many] teeth, and we're drooling and he's having a hard time," she shared. "But, you know, he's so fun and his smile and everything is new and it's so fun to watch him. It brings me so much joy. I have to say it's the most content I've ever been in my life." So while Sims acclimates to a new life and a big birthday, SwimDaily takes a look at some of her best swimsuit photos.
