Licensed pilot Flynn has spoken in the past about his close bond with his mother.

"I know everyone says that about their mum, but it really is true. My mother has always been so incredibly devoted to me and my brother," he told Vogue Australia. "I always knew we were her number one priority. It has shone through everything from the way she chooses her jobs to the way she cooks dinner.

"Just from the conversations I've had with friends [about their parents], I know that she's special, in the way she prioritises us," Flynn added.

Elle is a dedicated mother to Flynn and Cy

Elle herself has spoken about her approach to motherhood. "I was 35 when I had my first [Flynn] and 41 when I had Cy and so I came to children a little later in life, but I made sure they were going to be the priority," she told the Daily Mail. "I used to travel a lot and I'd go through that thing that [working] mothers go through.

"I would always tell them, 'Mum loves what she does and I hope in life you find something you love to do so that work doesn't feel like work and you go off and do your thing and while I'm off doing my thing. How cool for you guys to have that time without your helicopter, control-freak mother around.'"
