He's just seven-years-old, but Dru Sweeney is already following in his model mum Seana's footsteps.

The Lucan boy, who makes his Communion later this year, is signed to Andrea Roche modelling agency along with his mum (31), who couldn't be prouder of her son.

"He's already been booked for some jobs. He's doing great," Seana told the Diary.

With years in front of the camera and on the catwalk under her belt, Dru couldn't have a better mentor than his plus-size mum Seana - especially when it comes to body confidence.

Unlike many of her modelling colleagues, Seana feels completely happy when strutting her stuff down the catwalk during lingerie shows, as there isn't the same pressure on her to stay slim.

"I think for a lot of my friends in the agency who are a size eight, it's harder for them," she said. "I'm getting booked because I'm the size and shape that I am. It's quite liberating."

Seana first began modelling after being chosen by top plus-size model Saffi Karina to take part in her fashion and body confidence workshops, The Curve Project.

"[Plus size modelling] wasn't as common at that time, I was a bit self- conscious," Seana said. "I came across this competition to go to London, where it was a bit more popular at the time, and I was selected."
