Christie's beloved rescue pup is one of her most treasured companions, frequently making appearances on her social media much to the delight of her legion of fans.

She waxed lyrical about her love for her pet on the Rappaport to the Rescue podcast, saying that he was originally brought on to care for her daughter Sailor Brinkley-Cook but has since become her "protector."

"He takes his job very seriously," she explained. "He believes he is on this planet to protect me and take care of me.

"And every single time I come out of the bathroom, I open up the bathroom door and come out of my shower, and he's sitting there, with his back to the bathroom door, in a position on alert. Then he turns around and he gives me the sweetest little look [that says], 'Good, you're okay'. It touches my heart every single time."

Aside from looking after little Chester, Christie is also a devoted mother to her three children: Alexa Ray Joel, 37, Jack, 28, and budding model daughter, Sailor, 25.
