Supermodel Christie Brinkley is currently on an offbeat Christmas vacation at the Turks and Caicos Islands, where she owns a home in Parrot Cay. And it seems that this holiday might be due to the pressure she is under from her current boyfriend and potential fifth husband, John Mellencamp. Although, this also comes as a well-deserved break considering that Brinkley’s book, Timeless Beauty, is into its fifth week on two of The New York Times’ Bestseller lists.
The 61-year-old shared a series of photos on Instagram of her family vacation. Brinkley’s most recent post was that of last evening’s breathtaking sunset with the caption, “This place has me in its PALM! Wherever you are I hope you feel like you’re home for the Holidays!” Her fans appreciated the gesture and replied with equally kind messages, such as, “Merry merry!! Enjoy your holiday with your family [sic],” and, “Love the play on words. Merry Christmas beautiful.”
Prior to that, Brinkley shared an image of a dolphin and detailed the adventures of her day, writing, “I swam with the most famous Turks and Caicos resident today! Jo Jo the friendly dolphin live(s) in the open sea but he LOVES everyone! [sic]” The former Sports Illustrated model went on to explain how she took underwater selfies with him, but could not upload the pictures due to some error. “I wish all the people of the world treated Dolphins as kindly as Jo Jo treats every human he meets..he was a real gentleman with me! [sic]” ended Brinkley.
And even before this post she shared two more snaps, one of a sailboat and the other of her 20-year-old son, Jack Brinkley-Cook. This was a collage of eight photos that featured her son throwing pebbles into the sea to make them “skip.” Brinkley captioned this, “Skipping stones across the Big Blue Marble, the best planet in the Galaxy! Let’s protect our beautiful planet so someday our grandkids can skip pebbles too, across a clear blue sea.”
