Proving that beauty truly is timeless, a stunning 63-year-old Christie Brinkley is set to grace the cover of the hotly anticipated annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. Her two daughters, Alexa Ray Joel, 31, and Sailor Brinkley Cook, 18, join her for the sizzling multi-generational spread.
This isn't the first time Christie is dipping her toes into Swimsuit's waters. Brinkley previously graced the Swimsuit covers for three consecutive years: 1979, 1980 and 1981.
Christie hit social media to tease the upcoming issue, captioning a photo on Instagram: "Yes! I am excited to announce that I am back in @si_swimsuit. I figured with my gorgeous daughters @alexarayjoel and @sailorbrinkleycookby my side, whose going to be looking at me!"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!"Her daughters also joined her chorus of self-acceptance and encouraged other women to love themselves and their bodies. Sailor, Christie's daughter with ex-husband Peter Cook wrote: "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 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…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!!"Alexa, Christie's daughter with Piano Man Billy Joel captioned a photo of their shoot: "Let's STOP degrading and START celebrating ourselves and others, from both the inside AND out. There’'s far too much degradation, competition, insecurity, and unhealthy standards associated with women and their bodies- particularly on social-media … We are all perfect, just as we are."
