SUPERMUM LINDA TAKES ISLAND BREAK ON ST BARTS WITH BABY AUGUSTIN

31 DECEMBER 2007

She famously claimed not to get out of bed for less than $10,000, but Linda Evangelista seems to be loving her new role - even though it's unpaid and the hours are long.

Since becoming a mum to little Augustin James the 42-year-old Canadian supermodel has been radiating newfound contentment.

And there was no mistaking her maternal affection as mother and son took to the water in a yacht off the Caribbean island of St Barts. Linda - who's discreetly refused to name the father of her 14-month-old boy - cradled Augustin tenderly, while also juggling a bottle of milk and a teddy bear.

Meanwhile another A-lister has been taking advantage of the exclusive location's sunny climes and crystal clear waters.

Uptown Girl singer Billy Joel, 58, and his 26-year-old wife, culinary writer Katie Lee, are enjoying a romantic holiday on the French-speaking isle. The couple, who've been inseparable since tying the knot in October 2004, looked relaxed as they whiled away some time on board a yacht.
