Christie Brinkley worried about daughters quarantined in NYC as death toll rises
Christie Brinkley is terrified for her daughters who have self-quarantined in New York City where the coronavirus death toll reached 1,218 Monday afternoon.
Brinkley’s daughters, 21-year-old Sailor Brinkley-Cook and 34-year-old Alexa Ray Joel, are both self-quarantining in the Big Apple while she has been staying in her Hamptons home with 24-year-old son Jack Brinkley-Cook.
“My daughters are — don’t even get me started, I’m missing them so much. And I’m so worried about them. They’re both in the city,” the 66-year-old Sports Illustrated model recently told Extra.
The mom of three explained that her girls are staying put so they don’t risk potentially spreading COVID-19.
“Sailor was touring with ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ And she was meeting with crowds of people every night, hugging everybody so she said, ‘Mom, there is no way I’m coming home until I’m 100% sure I haven’t contracted anything,’” Brinkley said.
She added that Alexa, a singer, is also staying put for now because all of her recording equipment is in the city.
“She’s been working on some recordings, so she’s been hesitant to leave all of that, she said, adding, “Of course, I want my babies here.”
She added that Alexa’s wedding to fiancé Ryan Gleason has been postponed.
“Everything’s on hold right now,” she said.
Brinkley shares Sailor and Jack with ex-husband Peter Cook, who is engaged to much younger fiancée Alba Jancou.
She shares Alexa with ex-husband Billy Joel.
Brinkley, who says she knows several people suffering from the virus, is doing her part to help those in need.
“I’m so happy that my company Bellissima Prosecco is going to be giving back … our sales to try and buy the personal protection that the nurses.. and arm the people on the forefront of this battle,” she said. “We’re doing this through a great organization called Direct Relief … They’re doing a great job of mobilizing and getting them masks … all of the stuff they need to stay safe so that they can work to protect us.”
