Being the child of a celebrity comes with a unique set of challenges.

It created an awkward situation for the son of one of the most photographed women on the planet. 

And a smokin’ hot supermodel’s son was heckled at a basketball game with this shocking photo.

Supermodel’s son gets heckled with a nude photo of his mom

55-year-old Christy Turlington was one of the biggest supermodels on the planet in the 1990s.

She frequently graced the pages of major fashion magazines during the height of her career and was even featured in the music video for the song “Notorious” by British rock band Duran Duran.

At the age of 26, she left modeling to attend New York University.

In 2003, she married actor Edward Burns and had two children with him.

But recently, her life as a supermodel was used to heckle her son during a high school basketball game.

Students of the team that her 18-year-old son Finn was playing began to distribute nude photos of her from her modeling days to heckle him.

“I was surprised it hadn’t happened sooner,” Turlington told Harper’s Bazaar. “But, at the same time, I was like, ‘This is so rude!’”

But that wasn’t the end of the embarrassing incident.

Turlington said that it became a “bigger thing” when the school’s administration got involved.

“All I wanted to do was disappear,” Turlington said. “I don’t feel embarrassed about anything. Regretting things is a waste of time.”

Her 20-year-old daughter Grace told her to turn off the comments on her Instagram account to avoid nasty remarks. 

“I’m really happy that I don’t [have to see],” she said. “I can’t say that I’m Teflon. I’m sure if I did read something that was pointed or mean, it would hurt me in the same way. But I also try not to give that much attention to any of it.”

Grace, who’s an aspiring model, follows the same advice she gives her mom.

Christy Turlington’s children saw her as a student

Turlington was asked in a 2023 interview with Glamour if her children knew about her illustrious modeling career.

“When they were both little, I didn’t really model very much,” Turlington said. “I still don’t. It’s pretty rare when I do. But my daughter, she knew I went to school, which she thought was hilarious because she would do homework and I would do homework. The fact that I could talk about ‘I have a test tomorrow’ . . . she really liked that.”

She explained that her daughter was shocked to see her wearing makeup.

“I don’t really wear makeup,” Turlington stated. “My daughter looked at me like I had three heads, so I explained, ‘Well, sometimes Mommy sells lipstick.’ A few months later, I was telling somebody about my advocacy, and then she pitches in, ‘And sometimes mommy sells lipstick!’”

Her focus these days is her charity, Every Mother Counts, which helps pregnant women.
