"She can climb really fast to the top of a tree, and ski down a mountain faster than me, she's as sweet as honey from the honey bee, a passionate supporter of causes hum-b-ly."

She continued: "When she raps and dances, it's something to see and that's a little something about my 3rd baby. Happy Birthday Sailor Lee @sailorbrinkleycook @alexarayjoel @jackbrinkleycook."

Christie and her children celebrated the big weekend in the 67-year-old's $29.5million Hamptons home.

Christie's dreamy New York estate is spread across 20 acres of land and is made up of three separate compounds, including a 50-foot-tall observation tower which gives it the name, Tower Hill.

The main home features four bedrooms and five bathrooms, while the guest house has a further four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms.

Inside, her glorious home is just as amazing, with a retro theme throughout, featuring an abundance of floral furniture and quirky artwork.

The property also featured a stunning garden, a working farm on site, and a swimming pool.

As well as her idyllic retreat in The Hamptons, the mother-of-three has a jaw-dropping Turks and Caicos property with unbelievable beachfront views, which also has beautiful flowers galore!
