Hollywood star Ben Stiller has introduced the world to Derek Zoolander's son, played by Cyrus Arnold

Ben Stiller has introduced the world to Derek Zoolander's son.

The 49-year-old star - who starred as the male model in the 2001 hit comedy film 'Zoolander' - is set to reprise the role in the eagerly-awaited sequel and has revealed the identity of his character's on-screen son, played by Cyrus Arnold.

The comedian posted an image of himself alongside Cyrus on Instagram, and captioned it: "Meet @cyrusarnold. Son of Derek. #Zoolander2"

The image comes shortly after Karl Lagerfeld revealed he's turned down a cameo role in 'Zoolander 2'.

The Chanel creative director was approached to make an appearance in the long-awaited movie but said he has no desire to turn his hand to acting.

He revealed: "I don't want to be in the movie. They wanted me to be in the movie! I'm not an actor."

The film was officially announced when Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson made a surprise appearance in character as Derek Zoolander and Hansel McDonald during Valentino's recent Paris Fashion Week show.

However, the outspoken designer didn't welcome the interruption, saying: "I didn't like it."

'Zoolander 2' - which is also rumoured to star hip-hop icon Kanye West - is set for release in February 2016.

Derek Zoolander (Stiller) is living in the New Jersey woods as a 'hermit crab' after the collapse of his centre for 'kids who can't read good' and the death of his wife, but then he and former rival Hansel (Wilson) are drawn into a plot. Chaotic, scattershot, largely laugh-free sequel to the fondly-remembered 2001 original.
