“My first thought was, ‘At my age? No way!'” Brinkley told People magazine about the shoot. "When I turned 30, I was like, ‘This is the last time I’m posing in a bathing suit!’ When this issue comes out, I’ll be 63. I thought, ‘Those days are over.’ But to get to do it with my girls, I thought, ‘One last go!'”
In a message she shared on Instagram, Brinkley said that she expected her "gorgeous daughters" to draw the attention this time around. Mom obviously appreciates sharing the Swimsuit issue honor with them, and she also appreciates the message this particular magazine sends.
