Supermodel Stephanie Seymour made headlines this week when photographers snapped her at the beach looking very flirtatious with her 17-year-old son, Peter Brant Jr. The mother and son duo looked more like lovers while they frolicked on the sand and in the water, kissing and playing.

These shots left many to wonder if Seymour was perhaps in some sort of incestuous relationship with her son. I have to admit, it did look a bit fishy.

Well, Seymour’s son Peter spoke out and told Gawker.com:

“My mother and I are very close as she is with all her children. She often hugs and kisses me and my siblings in a manner that is intimate. Any mother in the world does the same…That day on the beach we walked around with each other completely aware of the presence of photographers there.”

“We have nothing to hide and with that in mind I would like to say that I am openly gay,” Brant says. “At my age my mother and I are almost like friends and I feel open to talk to her about anything (and yes, our relationship may be different because of my sexuality).”

Oh, so the fact he’s gay should clear it up? Ha, honestly, I think they should be as affectionate as they want to be. Carry on!
