The sordid divorce trial of supermodel Christie Brinkley and Peter Cook came to abrupt end as lawyers reached a settlement giving Christie custody of their two kids.

A settlement appeared imminent yesterday after both combatants were spotted wearing peace symbols.

Lawyers for both sides burned the midnight oil on a legal all-nighter that resolved the conflict between Christie and Cook.

According to the deal, Christie gives Cook $21 mill but will keep 18 disputed properties located in the Hamptons.

Cook gets parenting time with kids Sailor Lee and Jack while Christie has custody.  Despite a prenup, custody of their two children was the crux of the spousal battle.

"It's to me a very bittersweet moment because it really is the death of a marriage," Brinkley stated after the court announced settlement.

The super-mom then displayed an elaborate dinosaur diorama she had helped make for a science class for her son.   The prehistoric prop was used as evidence at the trial.

"I'm very pleased with the results today," she said.

"It's everything I asked for," ex-hubby Cook agreed.

The rest of the agreement was sealed confidential.
