Mingus is Helena's only child, and he was born in 1999 when she was with her ex-partner, actor Norman Reedus.

In the post, Helena stood with photographer Cass Bird and Mingus, who looked every bit the supermodel's double.

Mingus is Helena's only child

Last month, the supermodel's fans were also quick to notice the similarities between Helena and her mother, Elsa. In a photograph taken over the festive period, Helena's mother posed with Mingus in front of the family's Christmas tree.

Helena is also strikingly similar to her mother

The supermodel paid tribute to her family and how the coronavirus pandemic had highlighted the need to keep a close familial bond. "This year.. though I'm not really into New Year's Eve I think it's good there's an actual date to make us feel all the weirdness is over. Somehow," Helena wrote.

"But this year made me grateful as well, for all the time I got to spend with my son, for how much more immersed in nature I was, for discovering how much kindness there is in people, for not feeling lonely being so much alone, for my little close group of awesome friends, for my beautiful family, and mostly, for my mom who takes such amazing care of my sweet dad – 2021 please bring health and mental wealth to us crazy people on earth – We might have been physically distanced this year but somehow we are so much closer."
