It runs in the family! Christie Brinkley‘s son, Jack Brinkley-Cook, gets his good looks from his mom and his dad, Richard Taubman. Although he didn’t decide to pursue a career in modeling like his famous sister, Sailor Brinkley-Cook, he’s still someone you need to look out for in Hollywood.
Born in June 1995 to Christie and her third ex-husband, Richard, Jack decided to stay away from the spotlight as much as possible. When The New York Post asked him why he never decided to pursue a modeling career, the blonde-haired hunk said, “it’s just not something that I’ve been interested in.”
Although Jack didn’t want to make a career for himself in the fashion industry, he did pursue a higher education and graduated from the Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute in New York in 2016. Now, he’s focusing on his new startup, Rove, which helps travelers find a “luxurious ride experience” to the Hamptons.
“For the past five years, I’ve been doing the commute from downtown Manhattan,” Christie’s son explained. “I just felt there was a need to create something that was enjoyable and in line with exactly what the Hamptons is — a retreat.”
Since he’s no longer a kid, Jack has been living on his own in TriBeCa in New York City. But thanks to his girlfriend, Nina Agdal, whom he’s been dating since 2017, the aspiring actor doesn’t have to feel lonely. In fact, he said they met through a mutual friend at Montauk’s Surf Lodge, just two months after Nina split from Leonardo DiCaprio.
“I thought she was very beautiful and then when I got to know her, she is as incredibly nice and cool, as well,” he gushed about the Victoria’s Secret model.
In July 2020, the pair celebrated their three-year anniversary together. “3 years later. Still on a beach. Still drinking wine. Still cracking jokes no one else would find funny,” Nina said on Instagram next to two snaps of her and Jack on the beach.
It seems like these two are in it for the long haul.
