The mother-son duo posed up a storm for a new Victoria's Secrets campaign and the black and white images were truly stunning.

Her social media followers adored the sneak peek and couldn't believe how similar they are. 

"You are both so gorgeous. You could be twins," wrote one, while another said: "Like mother like son," and a third added: "Spitting image of his mum."

The Mother's Day campaign was shot by photographer Cass Bird and Helena spoke about motherhood in a video too.

Mingus asked her: "What surprised you most about being a mom?" to which she replied: "I wouldn't say surprised but overall what a crazy beautiful journey it's been and how much you've taught me compared to what I feel I've taught you. It's the best thing ever. So much work. So much beautiful work."

The pair have a wonderful relationship and when Mingus rang in his 21st birthday in October 2020, Helena wrote a touching tribute to her only son.
