Helena Christensen and her 12-year-old son Mingus went shopping in New York City’s Soho neighborhood on Saturday (May 12). The Danish model wore a floral jumpsuit and lavender sandals.
Mingus – whose dad is actor Norman Reedus – dressed casually in jeans and a t-shirt with stars.
Helena once told People that she’s not a strict parent.
She said, “I haven’t deprived him, like you can’t watch television or play video games, because kids usually overdo [those things] for a bit but then they get over it because it’s not enough stimulation anyway.”
She also talked about the creature Mingus once found in the city.
He wants to be out in nature all the time. He found a snake the other day in New York, and he said, “We have to bring it home.” So I had to empty a water bottle, and in it went. Then I took it to the pet store, and they identified it. It’s not a cobra, so we took it home and it’s now living in a big cage, and I have to buy grasshoppers every week.”
