Rosie Huntington-Whiteley might be one of the country’s most photographed women, but when it comes to her private life, the model prefers to keep her family out of the spotlight. Her fans were delighted this week, therefore, when Rosie shared an incredibly rare photo of Jack, her son with fiancé Jason Statham.

Asked by a fan if Jack has an American accent given that the family live largely in the US, Rosie answered: "I'm really proud to say he has a proper English accent, and he does have the same booing loud voice as Jason. The pair of them are so noisy!"

She continued: "[Jack] looks very much like me when I was young but with Jason's eye colour."
