Model Christine Brinkley will be featured in this year's edition of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue at the age of 63.
Christine Brinkley may be 63 years old, but age is just a number anyway. The model is set to return to the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in a photo shoot with her daughters, Alexa Ray Joel, 31, and Sailor Brinkley Cook, 18.
Check out one of the preview shots released on Monday:
Brinkley has appeared in the magazine eight times, gracing the cover in 1979, 1980, 1981.
When Sports Illustrated asked her about appearing in the magazine this year, she was apparently flabbergasted.
“My first thought was, ‘At my age? No way!’” she told People. “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!’”
