Helena Christensen and son Mingus star in Victoria’s Secret campaign

Mingus Lucien Reedus looks just like his mother.

The 21-year-old son of Helena Christensen and Norman Reedus posed with his supermodel mom, 52, for Victoria’s Secret’s new Mother’s Day campaign.

In the black-and-white ad photographed by Cass Bird, Christensen wears the lingerie brand’s Satin Short-Sleeve PJ Set ($79.50) while embracing her lookalike son, who’s clad in a white distressed crewneck sweater and denim.

In the accompanying campaign video, Mingus asks his mother, “What surprised you most about being a mom?”

“I wouldn’t say ‘surprised,’ but overall, what a crazy, beautiful journey it’s been,” Christensen replies. “And how much you’ve taught me compared to what I feel I’ve taught you. It’s the best thing ever … [You] think about life from a completely different perspective.”

It’s not Mingus’ first foray into modeling; he made his runway debut for Calvin Klein in 2017, and hit the catwalk for Tommy Hilfiger’s London Fashion Week show alongside the likes of Naomi Campbell and Alessandra Ambrosio last year.

Victoria’s Secret’s Mother’s Day campaign also stars new mom Grace Elizabeth, who posed for her shoot while nine months pregnant with son Noah, joined by husband Nicolas Krause.

“I have this little tiny beautiful human inside of me,” Elizabeth, 24, says in the video, tearing up. “My baby … I’m ready to do it. I’m ready to be a mommy.”

Swedish beauty Sabrina Karlsson posed with husband Ricky Jackson and son Zion for the campaign as well, along with Nigerian model Mayowa Nicholas and her mother, Temmy.
