The year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue is a family affair for Christie Brinkley and her two daughters.
The timeless beauty who turned 63 this month, shared an Instagram Monday night posing in the water next to her daughters, Alexa Ray Joel, 31, and Sailor Brinkley Cook, 18.
Brinkley previously graced three consecutive covers of the magazine’s issue dedicated to swimwear in 1979, 1980, and 1981.
Brinkley also thanked the magazine “For sending the powerful message that good things come in packages of every size and we do not come with an expiration date!”.
Brinkley was not the only model to preach about the importance of self-acceptance.
Sharing the same photo as her mother, Brinkley Cook wrote that she had “a plethora of awkward phases,” and that she “Always somehow found something to pick on” when looking at her own reflection.
“My body and I have been through it all,” Brinkley’s daughter with former husband Peter Cook said.
Brinkley Cook’s sister, whose dad is Piano Man Billy Joel, also preached about embracing the body you are in.
