British actress Patsy Kensit looks to ex-husband Liam Gallagher's mum for tips about parenthood after her own mother passed away when she was 22.
The Lethal Weapon 2 star was wed to Gallagher, her third husband, from 1997 until 2000 and they share a son, Lennon. Kensit is also mum to James, 18, her child from her second marriage to rocker Jim Kerr.
The blonde beauty admits she stayed close to her ex-partners' mothers and they've dished out invaluable advice on how to raise her kids.
She tells Britain's Celebs on Sunday, "Jim's mother Irene, who died last December, brought three boys up in Scotland. She and Liam's mum Peggy have become role models for me. They are strong women who brought up these boys.
"I have such admiration for them. Motherhood and career is what it's about."
But Kensit admits not having her own mother around has been hard - Margaret lost her battle with breast cancer in the early 1990s before her grandsons were born.
The star adds, "My parents died before the boys were born and my one big sadness is they never had mum as their grandmother."
