Jourdan Dunn on Her Son, Riley

Jourdan Dunn on Her Son, Style-Obsessed "Mama's Boy" Riley


Jourdan Dunn's son, Riley, hasn't turned 3 yet, but his model mom says he already has a burgeoning — and noticeable — interest in fashion.

"It's hard being away from my son because we are really superduper close. I mean, he is a little mama's boy," Dunn says in the inaugural episode of The Cut's Inside the Model's Studio. "He's 2 years old, but he's just got personality for days. He's such a boy. Like, he loves his music, he loves to play rough, but then he loves fashion. Like, he puts on a coat and then he goes in front of the mirror and checks himself out."

This isn't the first time Dunn has spoken about Riley recently. Last month she opened up to The Sunday Times about Riley's sickle cell disease, saying she would use her platform to raise awareness of the illness. She added then that the industry stood by her through her pregnancy and after she gave birth. She walked in Jean Paul Gautlier's Spring 2010 show seven months pregnant, and Victoria's Secret once called Dunn in for a shoot while she was still breastfeeding an infant Riley.

"They set up a little curtained area for me to use the breast pump," she said. "Not very glamorous, but, ultimately, I'm a mother first, then a model, and generally the industry is really supportive. This is a good career for a working mother."
