Mingus Lucien Reedus became famous as a celebrity baby, born of TV actor Norman Reedus and model Helena Christensen. His parents did a good job to keep him out of the spotlight. In recent years, however, an adult Mingus has begun to gain popularity as a model in the media. He completed his first catwalk during New York Fashion Week 2017, so here is what we know about Mingus.
Mingus Lucien Reedus Bio/Wiki, Age/Birthday
Mingus Lucien Reedus was born on October 13, 1999, in Copenhagen, Denmark. He was named after the famous jazz bassist Charles Mingus. Mingus spent much of his childhood with his Peruvian grandmother on his mother’s side, during which he had the opportunity to enjoy refined and international cuisine such as chicken and oysters in Moroccan style.
A year after starting his professional acting career, Mingus’ father Norman began dating model Helena Christensen. Mingus was born a year after their relationship began. Mingus’ parents stayed together for 5 years before separating in 2003. However, the separation was amicable, as they shared custody of their son amicably.
In the photos on his mother’s Instagram page, Mingus looked a lot like his father when he was a little boy.
But now, as a teenager, Mingus has become the image of his model mother. Just look at the shape of their faces, the brows, and the big eyes.
As he grows into adulthood, fans of Norman Reedus wonder when his son will start his own Hollywood career. Well, the fact is that his father has shown Norman that he is a very cool kid who wants to live his life as far away from show business as possible because he doesn’t want to ruin his life.
In one of his interviews, Norman revealed that his son even turned down a few acting gigs.
“We got this call because they are going to produce a new ‘Spider-Man’ and he is about 14 or 15 years old,” Mingus’ father Norman Reedus told the Philippine Daily Inquirer in 2015, adding, “They asked, ‘Would Mingus want to audition for ‘Spider-Man’?’ He has had a few of these calls and he always said no to them all.
When he talked about the reason his son gave, he said it was because he did not want to “ruin his life” and “not become famous”.
In another interview, Reedus said about his teenage son: “He has such a good head on his shoulders… I learn more from him than he learns from me. He is my role model!
While Mingus may not be comfortable with acting, the young lad from our research is certainly considering a career as a fashion designer. At least the men don’t seem to get much attention in this direction of showbiz, and that could be one of the reasons why Migus decides to follow in his mom’s footsteps.
Mingus completed his first catwalk at New York Fashion Week 2017, where he performed for Calvin Klien.
The young Reedus has not been in the spotlight for very long, and search phrases like “Mingus Lucien Reedus Boyfriend” have already begun to gain a foothold online, which shows how great the media’s interest in his personal life is. But why Boyfriend? Maybe fans speculate that he might be gay? This is exactly the kind of attention Mingus is running away from.
But at the moment there is not enough information about Mingus to determine his sexual orientation, whether he is gay or heterosexual.
Mingus hasn’t even made it easy for curious fans as he doesn’t have an account on social media at all. Maybe he does, but only with a different name so that the prying eyes of the media don’t lurk on him. There’s a Facebook account in his name, but Celebily confirmed that it’s a fake account and is not managed by him.
