Emily Ratajkowski is recreating some childhood memories with her son, Sylvester ‘Sly’ Apollo Bear!
The actress who doubles as a model and author has always made it clear that giving her child the best experiences he could ever ask for comes first. She reminded fans of that commitment when she took the one-year-old to the city where she spent most of her time as a tot, Sant Juan. The author ensured she showed off the views from the location with her almost 30 million followers.
Emily Ratajkowski Gives Son Experience Of Her Roots
In the first slide of the photos dumped on Instagram, Ratajkowski looked stunning in a pair of baggy army green pants and a black crop top as she posed next to a bright green door. She only has eyes for the adorable boy in her arms.
Although she reappears in the next image, the model is sitting on her father, John David’s, shoulders as a baby. The third photo showed an excited fan holding the Spanish copy of her book, “My Body,” and the fourth featured the model and her in an open area.
Several other throwback pics of Ratajkowski as a kid, including one where she was presumably in her mom’s arms, were included. There is also a video of the “iCarly” actress walking down the streets of Sant Juan. The 31-year-old wrote in the caption:
“As I walked Sly around, this lovely man (third slide!) pulled over in his car and came up to me holding Mi Cuerpo (my book in Spanish!) He told me that him [SIC] and his daughter have read it. Talk about a full circle, universe coming together, magical moment.’
She expressed her gratitude for “this life!” before switching to Spanish to talk about getting that “magical feeling” every time she came to “Majorca.” Returning to English, Ratajkowski claimed she “learned to walk here, and today my son got to be in the same place!”

The post was received with love and warmth from fans, who double-tapped it over 400k times. There were also many comments from supporters, with one person noting how “beautiful” the experience was for Ratajkowski and Sly.
The “Blurred Lines” video vixen added a side-by-side photo grid of her pose with Sly and her younger self on her dad’s shoulders to her Instagram Story. Both posts come after The Blast highlighted that the brunette beauty shared three pictures showing herself and her sweet boy in a water-filled bathtub, completely nude.
While the first snapshot showed the supermodel using one hand to cover her bosom as she started at a standing Sly, the next photo featured the mother-don duo holding hands and enjoying the moment.
In the last snap, Sly hunched over Ratajkowski’s head while she sank into the tub, covering her bosom from an onlooker’s view. The doting mom did not mince words in letting her fans know her son’s role in her life as she wrote “loml” in the post’s caption.
The magazine-worthy post naturally caught the attention of thousands of fans, including verified social media users, who wasted no time liking and calling it “cute.”
The “My Body” Author’s Book Evokes Envy In A Review
Back in November 2021, The Guardian provided a detailed review of “My Body,” claiming that Ratajkowski’s “otherwise self-aware study of the exploitation of women’s bodies” failed to take a deeper look at “her own elaborate image-creation.”
Per the news website, the 2014 and 2015 Sports Illustrated swimsuit model’s book leaned toward being more of a “non-linear memoir” rather than a collection of essays.
This was mainly based on Ratajkowski organizing her “musings” into separate sections, making them “bleed into a more general autobiographical jumble” — predominantly since most of the essays date back to her adolescence.
Not only does she recall her “near obsession” with singer Britney Spears and her San Diego childhood home, but she also narrates the “relentless objectification” she suffered at the hands of various employees and romantic interests.
After wondering why the Milan Fashion Week walkway model opted to dedicate most of her book “to relatively common degradations,” the reviewer claimed that the model’s artistry and patience were enviable traits.
