"Being a mom is the No. 1 reason I want to eat right and be healthy and exercise," Brinkley said at the Empire State Building illumination celebration in New York City. "I want to be able to do things with my kids, and enjoy the things that they love doing."
"I found some gorgeous driftwood and was really proud, [so] I snapped a picture and apparently it got a bit of attention," the former Sport Illustrated swimsuit model recounted, adding, "I think it's important for everybody to decide that they want to be healthy for themselves so they look good."
"[They're] such a gorgeous couple! Absolutely beautiful," Brinkley gushed. "[Vergara] is just as charming as she is on Modern Family, which I watch every night with my daughter Sailor… Sofia is just so funny and so gorgeous and I was so excited to meet them."
