Christie Brinkley Makes Her Return To The Cover Of Sports Illustrated

Christie Brinkley has been a model for as long as we can remember, and was turning plenty of heads thirty years ago with her Sports Illustrated covers. Now she’s kicking stereotypes straight in the face! The 63-year-old model in once again gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated with a little bit of company; her two daughters Alexa Ray and Sailor! The supermodel took to her Instagram to share the cover photo with her followers along with the caption;

"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!"

Brinkley also gave a shout out to Sports Illustrated for embracing beauty in not only different shapes and sizes, but age as well.

"Thank you Sports Illustrated for sending the powerful message that good things come in packages of every size and we do not come with an expiration date!"

Brinkley’s daughters were more then happy to join in with their hot mama to rock this cover. Singer/songwriter Alexa Ray was stepping into a bit of new territory, while for aspiring model Sailor, this was no simple photo-shoot. After struggling with body issues for years, the model felt a lot more confident in her skin. She shared with her followers via Instagram,

"My body and I have been through it all. But recently I have been liberated. I am healthy, I treat myself well, and for that I'm happy. This is more than a magazine to me and always has been. 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!! How lucky am i?!"

All this body positivity is absolutely incredible to see and props to these three beautiful women for showing that beauty truly does come in all types of packages! Keep on slaying ladies! Y’all are KILLING the game!
