Linda Evangelista with her son Augustine
56-year-old model Linda Evangelista rarely shares personal shots on social networks. However, the reason for this is not so much in her closeness as in the fact that in recent years the star has tried to avoid public attention. Recently, Linda admitted that she had done an unsuccessful cosmetic procedure to reduce body fat, which literally disfigured her. Therefore, she disappeared from the radar.
A few days after the confession, Evangelista returned to social networks to share an archival photograph of her son Augustine on the occasion of Sons Day in the United States. The picture shows the boy on the beach: “Augustine + mother” is written on the sand.
The light of my life
– wrote Linda.
The star gave birth to her son 14 years ago from the French billionaire and current husband of Salma Hayek François-Henri Pinault. Linda and François had a short relationship, and the businessman left Evangelista when she was pregnant and soon married Salma Hayek. The name of the father of Linda's child was not known to the public for a long time. Only a few years after the birth of Augustine, Pino said that he was his own father.

Despite the fact that François-Henri stated that Augustine was an important member of his family, Linda said that he did not provide any material support to his son. She filed a lawsuit against Pino, demanding a monthly payment of alimony in the amount of 46 thousand dollars. They managed to reach an agreement out of court, but it is not known what amount is at stake.
The showdown between the parents did not prevent Augustine from getting along well with his father's new family – he is in excellent relations with both Salma and his half-sister Valentina.
