Christie Brinkley, the 1980s supermodel, was photographed in a rare moment with all three of her children, which her oldest daughter and singer, Songwriter Alexa Ray Joel, posted on her 36th birthday on Thursday.
While spending time with her adult children, the 67-year-old actress posed with a huge smile on her face, standing under the arm of her son, Jack, 26.
Christie’s youngest daughter, Sailor, 23, also made an appearance during the family celebrations, dressed in a dark green pantsuit. Christie was dressed in a low-cut black dress with a front tie.
Each of the three children has a different father: Alexa’s father is Billy Joel, Jack’s father is Richard Taubman, and Sailor’s father is Peter Cook.
The mother and her children sat at a candlelit Thanksgiving dinner table set with red and white dinner plates. A beautiful flower bouquet sat in the centre of the table, surrounded by the formal dining set.
Christie told Westlake Malibu Lifestyle magazine that she was looking forward to seeing her family again for Christmas after spending time with them on Thanksgiving.
‘We stayed at home last Christmas and decorated the tree.’ We all sing Christmas carols together, and it’s a lively and joyful atmosphere. I printed copies of all the songs and assembled them into small booklets so that everyone could enjoy our favourite family carols.’
‘I’m positively FAKLEMPT!!!’ Thank you very much. ‘Just love, forever and always,’ Alexa captioned the throwback post on Thursday, her birthday.
‘That is the beginning and end of everything, the purest constant, the only thing that stands the unwavering test of time.’ That’s all I have!’
Alexa followed in the footsteps of her five-time Grammy Award winner father, Billy Joel, and became a singer. Christie and Billy were married for nine years before splitting up in 1994.
In 2006, the rising star released a few songs before taking a break from songwriting. She’s back in the game, and her latest single, Seven Years, was released in May.
Christie has a son named Jack with real estate developer Richard Taubman, 73, whom she briefly married in 1994 for a year. Christie was married to Sailor’s father, architect Peter Cook, for 12 years before their divorce in 2008.
Sailor is having a good time with her modeling career.
The 23-year-old bears an uncanny resemblance to her mother, and she uses her beauty to promote various fashion lines.
