Will Reeve, the youngest son of Superman actor Christopher Reeve, attended the annual fundraising gala for the nonprofit established in his parents’ names, The Christopher And Dana Reeve Foundation.
Will, 25, bores a striking resemblance to his famous father with the same chiseled jawline and dark hair.
Christopher Reeve died in 2004 at the age of 52 after spending the last nine of his years paralyzed from the neck down as the result of a horse-riding accident.
Before he passed away, the Hollywood star established the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation to support the search for treatment and ultimately a cure for spinal cord injury.
Following the lung cancer death of his wife, and Will’s mother, Dana in 2006 at the age of 44, the charity was renamed the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation.
A Magical Evening, held in New York, is the foundation’s biggest fundraiser and this year it was hosted by actor Jerry O’Connell with guests including Glenn Close.
Reeve leads the Reeve Foundation Champions Committee, which furthers the foundation’s mission through advocacy and fundraising.
Not only is he a spitting image of his “Superman” father, but William Reeve is making quite the name for himself in the sports broadcasting world.

Also joining Will at the event was his older half-brother Matthew Reeve, 37. Matthew and his sister Alexandra are the children of Christopher and his longtime partner Gae Exton.
Hollywood star: Christopher, pictured in 1982, was catapulted to international stardom after starring as Clark Kent in 1978’s Superman, a role he reprised in three sequels.
Keeping the memory alive: Will, 25, was only 11 when his dad died. He is a college graduate and dabbled in acting before focusing on a career in sports broadcasting.
Christopher died in 2004 at the age of 52 after spending the last nine of his years paralyzed from the neck down as the result of a horse-riding accident. His wife Dana, Will’s mother, passed away from lung cancer two years later at the age of 44. The three are pictured in 1997.
