Paulina Porizkova posts a tribute to her musician son-in-law on Instagram
Paulina Porizkova is a proud mother-in-law and wants her Instagram followers to know it. The 57-year-old model celebrated her musician stepson Eron’s upcoming record with a sweet Instagram tribute that included lots of adorable family photos and footage of Eron performing.
“One of the greatest blessings in my life was becoming a stepmom,” Porizkova captioned her compilation of photos and videos.
“I met Eron when he was 12. I was 21. He once thoughtfully explained to me how he felt about me. ‘You’re not like a mom,’ he said said. (Since he and his brother had a wonderful mum, this wasn’t the place I needed.) ‘You’re like a… well, not a friend, but…’ he thought for a moment then said. exclaimed victoriously after finding the right words: “You’re like a camp counselor!” Best compliment ever.
“And a few weeks ago he asked me to take pictures of him for his next album. RECORD! I knew he could play the guitar well, all the boys in Otcasek have a thing for music. But he rarely did it in front of his father. Ric did indeed cast a long shadow.
“My boys had told me that Eron was working on a record and said, ‘Mom, that’s like…really awesome!’ Honestly, I was scared to listen. What would I say if I didn’t like it? On my first listen, from the first minute, I felt overwhelming relief. And then joy. It was great. Not only good. Great. Since then, the record has been on my playlist.
“You can find out all about it @eronotcasek And yes, some of these beautiful ‘pictures’ are photographed by an extremely proud mother-in-law. #reprises #eronotcasek #fallaway”
Eron thanked Porizkova for the touching tribute, writing in a post the former model shared on her Instagram Story, “Wow!! Thank you @paulinaporizkova for this amazing shoutout!!”
The anti-ageism activist is stepmother to late Cars frontman Ric Ocasek’s children: Christopher, Eron, Derek and Adam Ocasek. Together, the couple shared children Jonathan Raven and Oliver Orion.
In 2019, Ocasek passed away from heart problems. It was Porizkova who found him dead.
In 2021, the former Dancing with the stars The contestant shared a thoughtful tribute on Instagram to her late husband.
“It’s been two years already. It’s only been two years,” Porizkova captioned the post. “This photo is from our last vacation. Coffee of the world. He brought me here for many years to celebrate the day we met, May 4, 1984. We would have a most romantic and wonderful weekend in New Orleans. He wasn’t a big drinker, but here we once tried the Hurricanes, the street portables, and got so drunk we couldn’t find our way back to our romantic little inn. So many memories. And in the 35 years of knowing each other, an overwhelming number of them were wonderful.
She concluded, “That’s where I’m going to park. With twenty-five years of incredible memories. My love, you know we miss you everyday.
Porizkova had a complicated relationship with Ocasek, who removed her from his will just a month before his death, claiming she had “abandoned” him.
In April 2021, she told Yahoo Life that time has allowed her to think differently about her late spouse’s decision.
“I think of Rick every day, sometimes with anger. But the more time passes, the more I think of him with more and more tenderness,” she explained. “He made a mistake, but he didn’t survive to correct it, and it’s not his fault. And I’m going to choose to go because there’s no one to tell me otherwise.
