The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree for Flynn Busson, the son of billionaire Arpad Busson and supermodel Elle Macpherson.
Flynn, 24, was the spitting image of his financier father, 59, when he shared a photo of himself driving the same speedboat that Arpad drove him around as a toddler.
Supermodel Elle, 58, was in a relationship with Arpad from 1996 until they split in 2005, they also share a son, Cy, 19.

Flynn wrote on Instagram: “22 years apart…2022, 2012, 2000,” alongside three photos of himself aboard the boat.
While the first two images were of Flynn driving the boat himself, the third in 2000 had him sitting on his father’s lap as they went out to sea together.
Arpad recently looked cozy with the Countess of Mornington Jemma Kidd while on holiday in St Moritz, but he has remained friends with Elle after their breakup.

Both Elle and Arpad attended when Flynn graduated from Boston University last year after studying finance and real estate, with the model sharing family photos on Instagram.
‘Where has the time gone? You boys are a credit to yourselves, and your father and I are in such awe of the men you have become,” she wrote at the time.
Flynn, a licensed pilot, divides his time between London, New York and Miami and has a very close relationship with his mother.

In an interview with Vogue Australia in 2019, he said: “I know everyone says that about their mother, but it’s true. My mother has always been so incredibly devoted to me and my brother.’
“I always knew we were her number one priority,” Flynn added. “It shines through everything from the way she chooses her job to the way she cooks dinner.”
He said he was grateful that his mother was always there for him as he grew up, despite her extremely busy schedule.

‘Just from the conversations I’ve had with friends [about their parents]I know she’s special in the way she prioritizes us,” he said.
According to Flynn, his mother regularly pulled him out of school, regardless of her work commitments, and was a constant source of support and guidance.

The handsome pilot looked smart in a black suit with an open-neck white shirt and flashed his perfect pearly white teeth as he proudly posed next to his beautiful mother.
Supermodel Elle, meanwhile, cut a glamorous figure for the event as she donned a long-sleeved beige dress with a sheer detail and a high collar.
Styling her blonde locks in voluminous curls, the beauty complimented her outfit with sunglasses.
