Linda Evangelista shares glimpse into co-parenting relationship with Salma Hayek with a sweet tribute to her son’s stepmother
Linda Evangelista has shared a sweet tribute to her sons stepmother Salma Hayek for going above and beyond to help her when she was sick.
In Vogue’s September 2023 edition, the supermodel, 58, gave the publication a rare glimpse into their blended family.
Linda, who dated billionaire François-Henri Pinault for a few months in 2005 and 2006, shares son Augustin, 16, with her ex.
Salma, 56, wed François-Henri, 61, in 2009 and together they share a daughter named Valentina, 15, while she is also stepmother to Augustin.
Linda, 58, told Vogue that she mostly spends holidays with Salma and her ex-boyfriend as a family but there was one time she had to bow out of the festivities, leading Salma to swoop in.

She said: ‘I was sick at Thanksgiving and Salma got on the plane with her daughter, came here, and made Thanksgiving dinner.
‘I wanted her Mexican chicken with truffled potatoes. And she spent the day in the kitchen and cooked it herself. No help.
‘The kids helped her at the end. She made a feast — a beautiful, beautiful meal. I had told her that I wasn’t going to have Thanksgiving; I wasn’t feeling well. And she said, “Oh yes you are: I am coming.” And poof, she was here.’
Last year, Linda opened up about the devastating impact that the aftermath of CoolSculpting had on her relationship with her son.
A rare side effect from a fat-freezing procedure she underwent five years ago has left her ‘brutally disfigured’ and a recluse.
‘[Augie] used to say, “Mommy, do you remember when you used to be fun? Remember when you used to laugh all the time? How come you don’t laugh anymore?” I hate what this has done to my relationship with him,’ she said in an interview with People.
‘It is very important for me to raise him knowing that he is beautiful and knowing that everyone is beautiful,’ she said, adding, ‘It’s so messed up that I truly believe that except it doesn’t pertain to me.’
The runway sensation has kept her condition private from her loved ones in order to not ‘burden’ them.

‘I should not be a burden to my child. He shouldn’t have to be supporting me. That’s not his job,’ she said.
The Black Mirror star Salma recently penned a heartfelt birthday tribute to her longtime French businessman husband.
The Magic Mike’s Last Dance star posted a sweet picture of herself giving him a kiss on the cheek with her more than 24.2 million Instagram followers.
‘Happy birthday mi amor, you are my sunshine, my warmth, my light, my strength, my joy, my love,’ she captioned the snap.
