Christie Brinkley Posing With Her Daughters Is The Greatest Thing On The Internet

 Christie Brinkley Posing With Her Daughters Is The Greatest Thing On The Internet

Age won’t stop Christie Brinkley from wearing revealing swimsuits.

The 63-year-old former supermodel and her two daughters — Alexa, 31 and Sailor, 18 — are all featured on the pages of this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition. The magazine released a teaser photo Monday night where all three women pose while wearing black bikinis on the beaches of Turks and Caicos.

Brinkley was hesitant about getting back in a swimsuit in front of the cameras.

“My first thought was, ‘At my age? No way!’ When I turned 30, I was like, ‘This is the last time I’m posing in a bathing suit!’” Brinkley said. “But to get to do it with my girls, I thought, ‘One last go!’”

“This is a real full circle moment for me,” she added.

“I can get very emotional about this. How many years ago, I was that insecure girl hoping that I would be good enough for the magazine. So to see my daughters now having the same thoughts I had, and to be able to see them actually be there on the job, was definitely a big moment.”

@sailorbrinkleycook in her own words….❤ ・・・ I’ve had issues with my body image since before I can even remember. I grew up not loving how I looked and felt held back because of it. I don’t know why I always felt that way, sure I had baby fat and definitely went through a plethora of awkward phases, but I had a family that loved me i had friends who made me laugh etc. But for some reason I still looked in the mirror and always somehow found something to pick on. I went from being “too fat” to “too thin” to “too muscular” and I never felt satisfied. My body and I have been through it all. But recently I have been liberated. I am healthy, i treat myself well, and for that i’m happy. I’ve looked in the mirror and been able to LOVE the things about my body that beauty norms deem ‘undesirable’. I now have grown to know that my body is worthy of so many great things. I don’t need to be a size 0 to believe in myself. My body carries me each and every day, it loves the people i love, it holds what makes me healthy and strong, it bends it shakes it runs and it CHANGES. That is okay and that is beautiful. I could not be more grateful to the beautiful and strong @mj_day for including me in this years Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue ??❤ This is more than a magazine to me and always has been. As a growing young woman SI showed me all bodies are different and all bodies are worthy of celebrating. Thank you thank you @si_swimsuit for celebrating my beautiful mama, my beautiful sister, I, and ALL WOMEN!! How lucky am i?! ??? i think I’m dreaming. ??? thank you!!!!!!! ❤ (Also, thank you @hayleythorpeholla and @v_beast and everyone at @dogpound for changing my life ?❤) More to come!!!!!!!!
