Christie Brinkley has still got it! Years after first gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue, she can still don her beachwear for a cover shoot and look absolutely stunning doing it. Just before celebrating her 60th birthday on February 2nd, Christie opens up about all her secrets to looking young and staying healthy. We need to know: how can we look this good at her age?

Would you be brave enough, or fit enough, to show your swimsuit-clad 60-year-old body on the front of a magazine? Well, Christie Brinkley sure is!

Even though she is hitting the big 6-0 in just a few days, Christie looks like she has found the fountain of youth. The model and actress is being featured on the cover of this week’s PEOPLE magazine and looks absolutely stunning in a tight blue one-piece swimsuit.

“I am actually excited about turning 60,” she tells PEOPLE. “I feel on top of my game.”

Despite her incredible physique, Christie said she wasn’t quite game enough to sport a bikini for the cover. “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.”

This sexy momma looks anything but an “old broad,” and her friends ate Sports Illustrated agree! “She looks phenomenal,” says MJ Day, senior editor for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. “She has the legs of a 30-year-old and the face of an angle. She’s what you aspire to look like at 60. She’s mind-blowingly beautiful.”

On way she stays beautiful? Maintaining her inner beauty. “I would be remiss when talking about beauty secrets to not say that one of the best is to care about the world around you. That’s what really matters. Even when I’ll be sitting here with gray hair and George O’Keefe wrinkles, people are going to say, ‘There is just something youthful about her.’”

Though Christie talks all about her healthy lifestyle and all the tips and tricks she uses to stay young and radiant, she attributes a lot of her youthful looks to her three children.

After four divorces, including a very public trial, we would not be able to look as sexy and confident as Christie, but she says that her children motivate her to keep a healthy lifestyle.

“Because I’m an older mom, I have a responsibility to my kids as well as myself,” she says. “I want to be there for them.”
