When we first met Alex McCord's son Francois, he was an adorable kiddo about to enter kindergarten. (See the clip above to relive the then-4-year-old's first day of school.) Since then, the years have flown by — and Francois has sprung up a few feet.
Now living with his folks in Australia, Francois is well into his teenage years. And on her son's 17th birthday, The Real Housewives of New York City alum posted a snap that had us doing a double take.
With a sweet smile and a head of golden curls, Francois takes after both his mother and his father, Simon van Kempen. Looking quite grown up, Francois sported a striped suit jacket with a crisp white shirt and eye-catching turquoise tie.
"THIS GUY," Alex wrote in her caption. "[Francois van Kempen] is 17 today, and the whole family is proud of his accomplishments (which are many), his empathy, his leadership skills and his wicked sense of humor. We love you so much!! Happy birthday!!"
