Christie Brinkley Sizzles in a Bikini at 61 & We Know Her Secret (PHOTO)

This celeb mom sure is having a spectacular summer vacation, and by spectacular, we mean Christie Brinkley in a bikini on a yacht around the Aeolian Islands. Mama mia! We'll have what she's having.

Brinkley has been sailing with her three children, Alexa Ray, Jack, and Sailor, diving into crystal blue waters and looking fit and tanned and blissful. And yeah, she's 61 years old and looks right at home in her white bikini. Because you wear a bikini for as long as you darn well want to! 

Okay, here's the part where I say I want to look that amazing in a bikini when I'm 61, and I do. Goodness knows she's probably doing a lot to make sure she looks that incredible. She's been blessed with extremely kind genes, but she's also probably eating carefully and working out and all that good stuff.

But it's more than that. She has a happy, confident glow. She's enjoying living in her strong, healthy body -- you can tell. The fact that she still slim and conventionally beautiful -- that's just icing on the cake. What's more important is she's feeling alive and vital regardless of her age. That's the real goal for all of us.

You know what I'm even more impressed with than the bikini at 61? At some point in her life Brinkley learned to sail, and she's so into it she named her younger daughter Sailor. And she takes her gorgeous family sailing around the world like some pirate queen.

That's pretty bad ass, if you ask me. That's what's keeping her young -- that and sunscreen. And that's why she's rocking a bikini like that.
