Christie Brinkley is doing something many women her age wouldn’t dare.
The former supermodel, who turns 60 next month, will appear on the cover of an upcoming People magazine in a swimsuit. Christie Brinkley told People that she didn’t wear a bikini in the photo so as not to embarrass her children, who are now 15, 18 and 28 years old.
Christie Brinkley conceded that while she does don bikinis in private, she changes swimsuits when she goes out in public with her kids. “They do not want to be hanging out with some old broad in a bikini,” she said.
Once married to rocker Billy Joel, Christie Brinkley graced the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue three times, in 1979, 1980 and 1981. Christie Brinkley, who was born in Michigan, has weathered four divorces.
