Linda Evangelista took to Instagram on Wednesday to celebrate National Son Day by calling 14-year-old son Augustin James the ‘light of my life.’

The 56-year-old supermodel shared an older picture of her son as a small child on the beach standing next to a heart with the inscription ‘Augie + Mommy’ in the sand.

The Canadian star made headlines last week when she publicly revealed that she underwent a CoolSculpting procedure in 2016 that impacted her appearance, as part of a $50 million suit against the parent company, Zeltiq Aesthetics.

‘Today I took a big step towards righting a wrong that I have suffered and have kept to myself for over five years,’ Evangelista said in a statement on the social media site.

She continued, ‘To my followers who have wondered why I have not been working while my peers’ careers have been thriving, the reason is that I was brutally disfigured by Zeltiq’s CoolSculpting procedure which did the opposite of what it promised.’

Evangelista said that she is ‘permanently deformed even after two painful, unsuccessful, corrective surgeries’ and has ‘been left, as the media has described, “unrecognizable.”‘

Evangelista said that she’s dealt with ‘Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia or PAH,’ a complication with fat cells.

The procedure’s after-effects, according to Evangelista, had ‘not only destroyed my livelihood, it has sent me into a cycle of deep depression, profound sadness, and the lowest depths of self-loathing.’

‘In the process, I have become a recluse. With this lawsuit, I am moving forward to rid myself of my shame, and going public with my story. I am so tired of living this way. I would like to walk out my door with my head high, despite not looking like myself any longer.’

Evangelista is parent to Augie with businessman François-Henri Pinault, who went on to wed actress Salma Hayek.
