Christie Brinkley celebrated her 70th birthday by uploading some snaps to Instagram, and people have been left stunned at her amazing appearance.

Ahead of her milestone birthday, Brinkley had been enjoying celebratory moments, including a vacation in Turks & Caicos with two of her children, as showcased in photos she shared earlier in the month.

In a white Alo sports bra and black leggings, Brinkley flexed her bicep in the photos, accompanied by a reflective caption that read like a poem.

"Looking in the mirror on my 70th Birthday and what do I see,” she began. “I’m finally happy with the person looking back back at me. I’m no longer critical and demanding, now I’m grateful and understanding."

She continued: "I’ve put this body thru it, I’ve broken every bone, in tiny miracles I’m all healed, in my heart and soul I’m home. It’s taken 70 years to get here, in tears and joy I’ve found my happy, so now I’m going to end this poem, before I get too sappy!"

She concluded with: "Happy Birthday Indeed!"

Naturally, the post got a lot of support from her admiring fans as people were blown away by Brinkley's beauty.

"You are an inspiration, a true icon and a ray of pure sunshine!! You make 70 look like 40," one person said, while a second added: "Thanks for being you and always breaking down barriers no matter what you do! Wow at any age but especially now!"

A third person said: "You are a bright light in this world and one of my favorite people to follow for your consistently upbeat posts. Keep shining, girlie.

A fourth person concluded: "Happy 70th Birthday, Christie!!! You are beyond blessed with beauty, grace, elegance, vibrancy and wit! May you continue to enjoy good health and happiness… you make 70 look fabulous!"
