Christie Brinkley's 60-Year-Old Ex Peter Cook Lied About His New Fiancee's Age As She's Younger Than He Claims, Reports Say

November 15, 2019

Peter Cook is officially moving on from his marriage to Christie Brinkley, but his new partner is igniting some social media controversy.

According to PageSix, the architect is now engaged to his new beau Alba Jancou. It was reported that the 60-year-old proposed to his much younger ladylove in September when they took a trip to Greece.

Peter confirmed to the publication at the time that his wife-to-be is 21 years old, and despite their four-decade age difference, he's convinced that Alba is his soulmate.

While announcing their engagement, he said he and his new partner consider themselves to be "incredibly lucky" to have found each other.

Wrong age?

Peter Cook sure raised eyebrows after revealing his intention to marry a 21-year-old lady. But things got a tad bit more complicated when reports surfaced that Alba is actually not the age that he claimed.

According to PageSix, sources have claimed that the blond psychology student isn't really 21 like her fiance said, but actually 20 years old.

The publication reported that Alba will not be turning 21 until March 2020. And on why Peter may have stretched the truth about her age, it's believed that he didn't want to reveal that his wife-to-be is younger than his daughter Sailor, whom he shares with his ex Christie.

In addition, it was reported that Peter, who claimed to have met Alba two years ago, didn't want it known that she was younger than 19 when this happened.

Neither Peter nor Alba has responded to these claims so the reports have been unconfirmed so far.


Mixed responses followed the reports of the age difference between Alba and Peter, and his possible dishonesty.

While some people believe these two deserve to enjoy their love, others find the whole thing weird and uncomfortable.

Love comes in different shapes and shades. Sure, issues like big age gaps often cause controversies but in the end, there's no reason not to support a relationship where the two people involved are convinced they are happy with each other and are doing what's right for them.
