Jason Isaacs got in on a mother-child shot:

Havent posted in a few days as Ive been busy doing two of my favourite things: working, and celebrity hunting at TIFF. Ive always told myself I can't let being a mom get in the way of the things I love doing. All through pregnancy I kept doing red carpets, kept going to concerts and kept going out with friends. Some people gave me very odd looks when I was hanging out at Sneaky Dee's looking like I was ready to pop! When mini-me was born, I still didn't stop. She's come to friends parties, she's spent hours waiting at red carpets and she's been to the movies. I like to think taking her to all these experiences has helped her become the people loving, adventurous and curious kiddo she is. Here's us with Jason Isaacs, aka Lucius Malfoy, aka one of my favourite evil characters last night at TIFF. She waited around for hours with me through this and didn't complain once. I'm so thankful for her ❤
