Christie Brinkley, 66, looks half her age as she flaunts abs in sports bra & jokes about ‘turning 50 for the 17th time’

CHRISTIE Brinkley has joked about "turning 50 for the 17th time" as the supermodel bravely opened up about getting older.

Dressed in skintight blue leggings and an exercise bra, Christie posed in the mirror as she revealed how the past year saw her undergo a hip replacement.

"In 8 days, it’s going to be Groundhogs Day! And I’ll be turning 50 for the 17th time!" she joked.

"I love birthdays! I just don’t like the numbers so I pretty much ignore them, I never felt as old as the number anyway ...until this year."

The 66-year-old continued: "After my very nasty break of my right arm and the frozen shoulder it gave me I couldn’t do downward dogs, planks, push ups, and at the other end my hip was getting worse with each passing year and long bike rides left me limping... I started to feel limited! Restricted! Dare I say... old!

"I just couldn’t get enough vigorous exercise, and with quarantine came banana breads and the inevitable extra pounds. I must add I felt overwhelmed by the number of injuries I was dealing with ( I’ve been very adventurous! Ouch!) but I realized I just needed to start with one thing and keep moving forward.

"So I took action , fixed my hip, got the total replacement, and I am overjoyed to be able to move my body again.

"I am getting stronger every day, and I like think I’m ready for anything...a hike, swim dive, paddle, ride, ski, and even a big piece of birthday cake! Hey I can work it off!"

The ageless beauty is mom to three children, and is never afraid of showing off her body.

Just days ago Christie flaunted her stunning figure as she rocked a sexy bikini during a Turks and Caicos trip.

Christie wore a patterned black bikini top, which she paired with black high-waisted bottoms and a beige hat as she took to Instagram tp prove she continues to defy age.

She held what appeared to be a black piece of clothing in the air, while her other hand was propped to ensure that her hat wouldn't blow away in the wind.

The model captioned the post: "She’s Such a Beach! 😂🤣"
