Christie Brinkley seems to be happy being single and raising her three children, Alexa Ray, 25, Jack, 15, and Sailor, 12. In the February issue of Prevention, the 56-year-old says she’s not rushing into falling in love.
“Most of the time, I’ve got my kids with me, so I’m not as prone to meeting people,” she admits. “And then, you never really know if someone is talking to you because you’re a celebrity. It’s not my number one priority.”
Motherhood has always been in her plans.
She says, “I always knew I wanted to be a mother … it takes a lot of work. My work makes me a better mom. It gives me a little door to step out of my parenting and bring the excitement from that day back home.”
Regarding the very public divorce from Peter Cook, she has learned to overcome setbacks.
Brinkley adds, “I really believe in the old expression that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. It’s through adversity that you find the strength you never knew you had.”
