Christie Brinkley Nails A Bikini Photo Shoot With Her Two Daughters For Sports Illustrated!

Christie Brinkley Nails A Bikini Photo Shoot With Her Two Daughters For Sports Illustrated!

The original supermodel, Christie Brinkley, is back in her bikini for the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition!

The 63 year old stunner was a cover girl for the magazine for three consecutive years from 1979 to 1981. Now she has returned with her two beautiful daughters in tow- Alexa Ray Joel and Sailor Brinkley Cook.

Brinkley admits she was hesitant about returning to modelling and it was her daughters who encouraged her to appear in the special issue once again.

“My first thought was, ‘At my age? No way!'” Brinkley said. “When I turned 30, I was like, ‘This is the last time I’m posing in a bathing suit!’ When this issue comes out, I’ll be 63. I thought, ‘Those days are over.’ But to get to do it with my girls, I thought, ‘One last go!'”

The photo of the mum and her daughter shows them all dressed in coordinating black bathing suits and matching smiles! Brinkley captioned the pic with, “Yes! I am excited to announce that I am back in @si_swimsuit ..I figured with my gorgeous daughters @alexarayjoel and @sailorbrinkleycook by my side whose going to be looking at me! Oh and My kids think I walk on water, so let’s not mention the apple box concealed just under the surface.”

The model’s daughters loved being a part of the memorable shoot, although they both had different reactions initially. Sailor, who’s a model in her own right already, called the experience “empowering and liberating,” while Alexa (who’s father is Billy Joel) said she “needed to be talked into embracing new experiences.” Both women used the opportunity to encourage body positive thinking and open up about their own body image struggles.

Sailor’s post of the same photo came with a heartfelt message about how she’s learned to accept and appreciate her body the way it is.

“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…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.”

Sharing a photo of herself in a bikini, Alexa said the shoot was definitely a new and scary experience for her. “This was a lesson in learning to let go, take the plunge, and embrace myself from both the inside AND out- which is something I struggle with each and every day,” she captioned the pic. “My purpose is to now pass along this lesson of unconditional self-love and self-respect to every woman who’s willing to listen.”
