Danish supermodel Helena Christensen, 38, recently claimed son Mingus Lucien, 7 1/2, as a chess prodigy. She said the seven year old was asked to compete for the American national chess team.

We’ve just discovered he’s a great chess player. He went to his first tournament and came third out of 50 children and was asked to play on the American national team. He’s only played for two years. He already beats his dad.

Mingus’ father is actor Norman Reedus, 38. Norman and Helena split in 2003 after a long-term relationship.
