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.

Gabby’s doll is part of Babie’s Shero Collection which also features dolls in the likeness of Ava DuVernay, Misty Copeland, and Zendaya.

Congrats!
