Well it looks like Christie Brinkley had a very jolly holiday. The 61-year-old model showed everyone that holiday weight gain was not a problem for her as she showed off her bikini body while on vacation in Turks and Caicos. She was joined by her children Jack Brinkley-Cook, 20, daughter Alexa Ray Joel, 29, and Joel’s boyfriend Ryan Gleason for the fun trip.

Brinkley showed off her gorgeous gams and abs in a chic Mara Hoffman Supernova Black rashguard and string bikini bottom. Always aware of sun protection, she also wore a hat to shield her face.

But it wasn't all just lounging in the sun. Brinkley was doing some hardcore swimming with a dolphin named Jojo while wearing a bikini. She wrote on the collage of her swimming, "I like to hang out with really intelligent beings on porpoise. ( Jojo is actually a dolphin, not a porpoise, and a famous and friendly one at that! ) #timelessbeauty." She also added, "Don't forget to reapply sunblock after swimming!" Will do, Christie!

In another photo, she wore a longer rashguard for some paddleboarding, as well as her hat and included a full description of all the products she uses to keep her skin looking young and healthy when she is out in the sun for extended periods of time.

She also shared a photo of her decorated house in Turks and Caicos with some prayer flags hanging outside. She wrote, "Lucky House under a full moon. Our Christmas Tree and Prayer flags from Bhutan whispering peace on Earth goodwill to men."
