The actress also shared a more recent photo of the mother and son smiling for the camera with their arms lovingly wrapped around each other.

Sharing the post to Instagram over the weekend, Christie penned a heartwarming poem: "From there to here, in the blink of an eye, you've turned into the most wonderful guy! 28 years of adventures and fun, you're the very best brother and my favorite son!

"Thoughtful kind and wicked smart, what makes me proudest is your beautiful heart! We all love you so much Giacomo! Happy Birthday Jack Paris! 2 June 2023."

Christie shares her son with her third husband, real estate developer Richard Taubman. The actress was first married to French artist Jean-Francois Allaux before going on to find love with Billy Joel, father of her eldest child, daughter Alexa Ray.

She was married to Richard from 1994 until 1995, shortly after Jack's arrival. In 1996, she married architect Peter Halsey Cook and they welcomed daughter Sailor Lee before their split in 2006.

Christie also celebrated her own birthday recently. While she turned 69 in February, she maintains that she doesn't feel a day over 30.

"I pretty much feel, as I'm approaching 70, the same way that I felt when I was approaching 30," she told People while hosting Pet Life Unlimited's Furever Young senior dog adoption event at the Animal Haven shelter in New York City on May 23.

She maintained: "I feel good. I feel strong," adding: "I feel like the number doesn't match my spirit, so I may as well just keep spiriting on."

Though she said each decade signals "to us certain things," she explained: "I've been shocked by not feeling the way I thought I was supposed to be feeling at that age," adding that age isn't something she is focused on: "I don't believe that focusing on age is going to make you feel any better about it.

"I think curiosity in the world around you and just wanting to do something with each day, that is what keeps you young and going."

Christie has been a household name for many years, having begun her modeling career in the early 1970s when she was in her 20s. The Michigan-born beauty went on to land appearances in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues – she had three consecutive covers in 1979, 1980, and 1981 – plus she spent 25 years as the face of CoverGirl.
