"I had to laugh when someone commented that because I’m almost 50 I should act my age," she said.

"Just throwing out a warning- that’s NEVER gonna happen. Our souls and spirits are ageless and our bodies are only here for a short time - so let’s move them, enjoy them and each other."

Amy's defiant response was met with a number of clapping hands emojis and plenty of "You go girl" comments.
