Lauren Sanchez's oldest son is carving out an impressive career as a model and height is helping him along the way. 

The fiancee of Jeff Bezos shares her oldest child, Nikko, with her ex-boyfriend, former NFL athlete, Tony Gonzalez, who stands at an impressive 6ft 5. 

In new photos celebrating his 23rd birthday, Nikko wasn't much shorter than his famous father as they posed for a photo with Lauren and the Amazon founder. 

At 5ft 8, Jeff is significantly shorter and the height difference was highlighted in the happy image that proved they've maintained a good relationship despite Lauren and Tony's split.

In fact, Lauren made sure to deliver an Instagram post to her ex on his birthday on February 27 too. She shared a sweet throwback snapshot of him with their son and wished him Happy Birthday.
