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

Flynn wrote on Instagram: ’22 years apart… 2022, 2012, 2000′, along with three photos of himself on the boat.
While the first two images were of Flynn himself piloting the boat, the third from 2000, showed him sitting on his father’s lap as they took to the ocean together.
Arpad has recently been seen holidaying in St Moritz with Countess of Mornington Gemma Kidd, although his friendship with Elle has remained since their split.

Both Elle and Arpad were present when Flynn graduated from Boston University last year after studying finance and real estate, with the model sharing family photos on Instagram.
‘Where did the time go? You boys are a credit in your own right, and your father and I are so impressed by the men you have become,’ she wrote at the time.
A licensed pilot, Flynn 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 elaborated: ‘I know what everyone says about their mother, but it’s really true. My mother has always been so incredibly devoted to me and my brother.’
Flynn said, ‘I always knew we were his number one priority. ‘The way she chooses her job, the way she cooks dinner, everything shines through.’
He said that he is grateful for how his mother was always there for him to grow up despite his extremely busy schedule.

‘Just from the conversations I’ve had with friends’ [about their parents]I know she is special, the way she makes us a priority,’ he said.
According to Flynn, his mother regularly picked him up from school regardless of his work commitments and was a constant source of support and guidance.

The hunky pilot looked dapper in a black suit with an open-neck white shirt and gleamed in his perfect pearlescent white while posing proudly next to his beautiful mother.
Meanwhile supermodel Elle cut a glamorous figure for the event as she wore a beige long-sleeved dress with a sheer detailing and high collar.
Styling her blonde hair in dazzling curls, the beauty complemented her outfit with a pair of sunglasses.
