Helena Christensen is thrilled the Covid-19 lockdown has given her the opportunity to spend so much quality time with her son.
The supermodel is currently in self-isolation in Upstate New York with her 20-year-old son Mingus, who shares with her ex-partner Norman Reedus, and her friend and creative partner Camilla Staerk, and she has been overjoyed that they’ve all been able to hang out.
“I’m in Upstate New York with my son and my friend Camilla. We stay as active as we can, both physically and artistically, to stay calm and focused in our heads. We do a lot of photoshoots and little films,” she told Harpersbazaar.com. “It has been a blessing to have nature right outside. I also have been cooking a lot and tidying up, watching movies, and looking through books. The fact that I get to be with my son all over again has been like a beautiful gift handed to me from the universe in this difficult time.”
The model and photographer and her artist/designer pal, who run the New York-based studio Staerk & Christensen, have also been using the company’s website to raise funds for the organisation City Meals, which provides homebound elderly New Yorkers with meals during the Covid-19 crisis.
“This pandemic is about a lot of things but I feel it’s important that the world regard the elderly from a new perspective, one that sees more attention and care being provided and, more than anything, more respect and love,” the 51-year-old shared.
When asked where she will go as soon as lockdown restrictions are lifted, Christensen replied that she will go home to Denmark to see her family.
Editors at Harper’s Bazaar asked celebrities to pose in their chicest lockdown outfits to accompany their interviews, and the model sent in a picture of her taking out the trash bin while wearing a striking hot pink high-fashion dress and sneakers.
