Helena Christensen and her ex, Norman Reedus, reunited to celebrate their son Mingus’ graduation from New York University in the star’s latest Instagram post uploaded Saturday.
The Danish model, 54, who recently enjoyed another reunion with Nineties supermodels Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington, uploaded a photo with her 23-year-old son and The Walking Dead actor, 54.
The former couple dated exclusively from 1998 until their split in 2003, and welcomed Mingus in October 1999.
The stunning beauty can be seen wearing a short-sleeved, black and blue striped sweater for an adorable family picture. Her brunette locks were parted to the side, and brushed down her shoulders in light curls.
Norman was wearing a long-sleeved, black shirt, while Mingus was seen wearing a white, button-up, partially open around the collar.
The trio flashed cheerful smiles at the camera and the supermodel captioned her son, ‘You did it!’
She also uploaded a short clip to her 1 million fans and followers, which shows Mingus, dressed in a purple graduation gown, raising an excited hand in the air with her father as they walk towards him. Were staying
Social media users jumped into the comments section to congratulate the 23-year-old on her milestone, such as Norman’s fiancée, Diane Kruger, and Hannibal actress, Julianne Moore.
Cindy Crawford, a close friend of Helena’s, typed in, ‘Bravo!’ While Chrissy Turlington added several purple heart emojis in reference to New York University’s school color.
The beauty, who sat next to Norman during their son’s ceremony, also uploaded a different selfie to her Instagram stories to cheer on Mingus.
‘Amazing celebration for @nyutisch 2023 graduates,’ Christensen wrote in the caption added at the bottom of the photo, referencing the New York University Tisch School of the Arts.
Mingus has followed in her mother’s footsteps, and has walked runways for brands as well as appeared in campaigns. He recently walked for the Versace Spring/Summer 2023 menswear show in Milan.
In late October last year, he joined his mother for Marcel von Berlin and posed with Helena for the Victoria’s Secret Mother’s Day campaign in 2021.
Since their split in 2002, both Helena and Norman have maintained a friendship and a healthy co-parenting relationship. The two reunited in 2018 to celebrate their son’s high school graduation.
Last March, Mingus was sentenced to private counseling after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct following allegations he punched an unidentified woman in the face at the San Gennaro festival in Manhattan.
Shortly before the exciting festivities over the weekend, the Danish-born star got a chance to reunite with fellow Nineties supermodels, Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington.
The beauty uploaded an Instagram photo series that captured the fun moment, and wrote, ‘Friendship for a lifetime. Beyond grateful for these women, much love to them and our children,’ followed by a white heart emoji.
Along with several photos of the stunning models, Helena also uploaded a photo of her children: Mingus, Crawford’s daughter, Kaia Gerber, and Christie’s daughter, Grace Burns.
“That was such a sweet end to a long day,” Turlington typed in the comments section of the post! Thank you @helenachristensen for always seizing the opportunities that don’t come around often enough!’
Brooke Shields also sent her thoughts and said, ‘I love this!! I was never a member of this group but I loved each and every one of you starting from far away…and now living life closely. I am thankful for all this.
Fellow supermodel, Naomi Campbell typed, “Love,” while Kaia Gerber wrote, “Such special memories.” love you!!!!!’
Helena, who rose to prominence especially in the 90s and has graced the covers of several magazines such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, also pursues her passion for photography.
Some of her work has been featured in publications such as Elle and Marie Claire, and the model recently said Hello! Magazine in an article published in April last month, ‘Photography is how I breathe, there’s no way I could live without it.’
‘It’s extremely important to me to see and discover everything – to be curious about things. And modeling is such a big part of my life too,’ she told the outlet.
‘I hope I can continue doing all that, because it inspires me creatively and I am so grateful to have that gift in my life – not everyone is able to feel so passionate about something Is.’
