Christine Brinkley & # 39; s children Alexa Ray Joel, Sailor Brinkley-Cook and Jack Brinkley-Cook happily posed together for a cover shoot for Hamptons magazine, but they insist that they don't like being seen as & # 39; famous children & # 39 ;.
The three brothers and sisters have been in the public eye since they were born thanks to the fame of their supermodel mother, and although they have lived a privileged life, they admit that it has a dark side to grow up with famous parents.
Although Sailor (21) and Alexa (33) both posed for photo shoots with their 65-year-old mother in the past, they told the publication that it was constantly painful to be compared to her.

Opening: Sailor and Alexa, both posing for photo shoots in magazines with Christie, said they don't like the label & # 39; celebrity children & # 39; or & # 39; celebrity offspring & # 39; to get.
& # 39; I hate the term & # 39; children of celebrities &, said Sailor. & # 39; It can hinder your growth. & # 39;
& # 39; Even crazier is & # 39; celebrities & # 39 ;, Alexa added, whose father is superstar musician Billy Joel.
Christie's marriage to the singer was her second, and they divorced in 1994 after nine years. The year of their split she married Richard Taubman and welcomed Jack, who is now 24.
However, their short marriage only lasted until 1995. The model married Sailor & # 39; s father, architect Peter Cook, in 1996. He adopted Jack and the couple spent 12 years together before divorcing in 2008.

Painful: the 33-year-old, pictured with Christie in June, said she was bullied relentlessly when she grew up because she didn't look like her mother
Like her mother, Sailor is a model and she even adorns the pages of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. After a gap year in Australia, she will return to Parsons School of Design this fall to study photography.
They admitted that she constantly & # 39; body shamed & # 39; was and compared to her mother, and she wishes girls on social media would stop trying to please others.
& # 39; I have been every size, & # 39; she said. & # 39; I am not the mini Christie Brinkley. I am myself. Now I'm just trying to post more normal things. & # 39;
Her older sister added: & # 39; I encourage girls to show other things, such as a music clip … and to embrace women for who we are. & # 39;

As a singer and songwriter, Alexa has followed the footsteps of her famous father, although she said she was bullied relentlessly as a child because I don't look like my mother.
Christie's oldest child gave in to depression almost daily and in December 2009 she took an excessive amount of Traumeel, a homeopathic alternative to ibuprofen.
Although she admitted at that time that she had reached the lowest point, she insisted that she did not attempt suicide, and it was later confirmed that it was essentially impossible to take an overdose of the drug.

Company: Jack has a relationship with Sports Illustrated model Nina Agdal, pictured left, and recently launched Rove, a ride service between Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Hamptons
Since then she has been using her social media platform to help young girls struggling with anxiety, depression or online bullying.
Earlier this month, Sailor and Jack started the fourth annual Race of Hope of the Hope for Depression Research Foundation to beat depression, but Alexa did not participate.
& # 39; I left that behind for my sporty siblings, & # 39; she explained.
Jack has meanwhile a relationship with Sports Illustrated, model Nina Agdal, recently launched Rove, a ride service that uses Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans to transport passengers between Lower Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Hamptons.
& # 39; It's going really well, & # 39; he said. & # 39; I think it resonated with many people looking for a more comfortable way to get in and out of the Hamptons. & # 39;
