Star's son looks identical to dad in new photo: 'Magical'

Elle Macpherson's 24-year-old son has shown he's all grown up after posting a new photo that is a spitting image of his billionaire father.

Flynn Busson posted a photo to Instagram of him driving the same old Riva speedboat his dad Arpad Busson drove him around in when he was a toddler.

With sunglasses and a serious expression, he looked almost identical to his father in another photo from when he was a toddler in the boat with his dad.

In the slide of photos was also another snap of Flynn in the boat in 2012, when he was just 14.

"22 years apart ... 2022, 2012, 2000," he captioned the photo.

Supermodel mum Elle commented on the post, "Magical post my love".

"Beautiful men," another said.

"What memories," a third added.

According to The Independent, Elle and Arpad split in 2005 after nine years together.

In a statement at the time, the pair said they had decided to remain friends.

They also share another son, 19-year-old Cy.

Flynn and Elle have a very close bond, and he told Vogue Australia in 2019 that she was "the best mother in the world".

"I know everyone always says about their mum, but it really is true,” he said.

“My mother has always been so incredibly devoted to me and my brother. It has shone through everything from the way she chooses her jobs to the way she cooks dinner. I always knew we were her number-one priority, and I think that it’s a very … I don’t want to say it’s a unique situation, but just from the conversations I’ve had with friends, I know that she’s special, in the way she prioritises us.

"Mum was always there picking me up from school. And even now, the stuff she does, even if it’s literally just: ‘You look tired. Drink more water' .... it does show the level of devotion, right?

"But seriously, even when things haven’t been easy, she put us first. I look up to her. My mother is a perfectionist, I don’t think that’s a secret. It’s one of her greatest qualities, everything she does has to be up to scratch.”
