Back in 1981, Christie Brinkley secured her spot as one of the most iconic supermodels of all time. It was that year that Brinkley graced the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition for the third consecutive year, making her the first-ever person to do so. Now, the supermodel is also a supermomma, and she's showing her two daughters around her old stomping grounds in a gorgeous photo shoot for this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Take a look at the stunning mother-daughters photo below.
In her Instagram post to share the beautiful new family photo, Christie Brinkley shared her excitement at posing alongside her daughters Alexa Ray Joel and Sailor Brinkley Cook. She also poked a bit of fun at how the unnatural looking water, which both Joel and Cook are partially submerged in while Brinkley is standing on its surface, writing "My kids think I walk on water, so let's not mention the apple box concealed just under the surface." The supermodel also thanked Sports Illustrated for showing that beauty does not come with an expiration date, referencing the fact that she's 63 years old and still looks absolutely incredible in her swimsuit.
But Christie Brinkley wasn't the only one to share her excitement about the photo shoot on Instagram. As PEOPLE pointed out, both Alexa Ray Joel and Sailor Lee Cook took to Instagram after the shoot to write about how the experience had helped them embrace their bodies and spread a message of body positivity to other women.
Sailor Brinkley Cook, the 19-year-old daughter of architect Peter Cook, went into more detail about her struggles with self-acceptance in her post. She writes that she had always found something dissatisfying with her changing body growing up, but has come to love her body and now finds the way that it grows and changes to be beautiful.
This year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition will be released on Monday, February 13.
