Gabby Douglas Gets Her Own Barbie
On the heels of making the 2016 U.S. Olympic Women’s Gymnastics Team, Gabby Douglas now has her very own Barbie doll!
The 20-year-old 2x gold medal-winning gymnast and reality TV star is thrilled to have a Barbie in her likeness.
I’m so excited. My older sister and I used to play with Barbies and create these dramatic fantasy stories, so it’s such a huge honor.
Gabby hopes girls who play with her doll will be inspired to follow her number-one rule in life:
Be yourself and really embrace your inner beauty and your true talent. Believe in yourself. Never let anyone tell you you can’t do something when you can.
