Kriste Lewis always dreamed of being an NFL cheerleader.
Well, her dream has come true: She recently made the Saintsations, the New Orleans cheerleading squad.
While that doesn’t sound unique at all, this part of her story is:
She’s 40 years old and the mother of two boys, ages 11 and 14.

“There were a lot of young, beautiful girls,” Lewis told ABC News of her competition, who ranged in age from 18 to 30. “It was a fear. I will not lie.”
Lewis also has a kidney disease, which she discussed with “Good Morning America” this week.
