FINALLY! BOW DOWN AND WORSHIP SELMA BLAIR – A CELEBRITY PARENT WHO ACTUALLY KEEPS IT ‘REAL’

  I love Selma Blair. And I love her even more after seeing this set of photographs taken during a weekend stroll with her 16-month-old son Dylan in Laurel Canyon, LA yesterday. All too often celebrity mothers leave their children with an army of nannies so they can emerge from the house immaculately coiffed, wearing a full face of make-up and stylist-picked clothes on their gym-honed bodies to give breezy interviews to magazines about what a doddle parenting is - serving only to heap yet more guilt on the already-laden doorstep of us normals. As the 40-year-old actress shows, the reality of dealing with a toddler - particularly now she's split from his dad Jason Bleick and she's doing it all alone like a plate spinner at a circus - is hard. You barely have time to nip to the toilet, let alone brush your hair or eat. Of course the pros outweigh the cons but she gets my full respect for prioritising spending the morning with her child before she left the house for some fresh air rather than with her stylist. Sleep deprived? Yes. Selma really is just like Us. She also gets full props from me for spending time with her child at 5am in the morning rather than her trainer- like Gwyneth, Beyoncé, Madge, Heidi, JLo et al.  They look adorable together. Dylan'll soon be able to make his own cereal and Selma will get some lie-ins and all the tough times now will be but a distant but worth- it-in-the-end dream.
