Christie Brinkley, who turns 60 on February 2, decided to celebrate her milestone birthday by rocking a swimsuit on the cover of this week's People magazine
, and to say she looks good for her age is an understatement.
Stunning in a teal one-piece, the legendary supermodel puts ladies half her age to shame.
Though despite her amazing shape, Brinkley admits that she actually isn't game enough to rock a bikini in public!
"My kids would be so embarrassed!" she tells People. "In private I may wear a bikini, but at the public beach with my kids I would change bathing suits because they do not want to be hanging out with some old broad in a bikini."
Brinkley also reveals that despite some very public drama in her personal life -- she has undergone four divorces as well as a particularly tough public divorce trial with her ex-husband architect Peter Cook -- she feels better than ever.
"I'm actually excited about turning 60," Brinkley says. "I feel on top of my game."
And what does she credit as her "fountain of youth" and her motivation for staying so healthy?
Her three children Alexa Ray Joel, 28, Jack Brinkley-Cook, 18, and Sailor Brinkley-Cook, 15, who's an up-and-coming model herself.
"Because I'm an older mom, I have a responsibility to my kids as well as myself," she explains. "I want to be there for them."
