Christie Brinkley feels less daunted by the ageing process because she's "loving the skin" she's in.

The model, who turned 66 on Sunday and celebrated her birthday by being ringmaster at the Big Apple Circus in New York, reflected on the past 12 months and the ageing process in a lengthy Instagram post accompanied by photo highlights of her achievements.

"My whole past year has been filled with so many incredible milestones! From reprising my role as Roxie Hart on Broadway! And headlining the show in Las Vegas!" Christie wrote, noting her impressive return to the musical Chicago 10 years after making her debut.

She went on to include her brief stint on Dancing with the Stars and sitcom The Goldbergs as some of her memorable highlights from 2019, and sweetly added that "watching my children's careers and passions blossom" was one of her greatest achievements.

"I can't wait to see what exciting #milestonesofme await for 2020!" Christie concluded. "With age comes wisdom and confidence which I find to be liberating! I also know I feel my best when I look as good as I feel... Ageing seems much less daunting when I'm loving the skin I'm in."

Last month, Christie shared a body positivity message when she posted her Cosmopolitan magazine cover from back in 1977 on Instagram and confessed that she originally thought she looked fat in the untouched photo.

"I look back at these and think that worry was such a waste of time. If only the perspective we gain with age that elevates the worries could be absorbed by the younger generation," she mused.
