Martin Freeman admits ‘it’s hard not to feel hurt’ when kids are with ex-wife

Radio Times."I always knew it, but it was like a rocket."Nothing to call social services about, but I knew I could and should be better."He added that he needed to teach himself not to be that way, as he navigated fatherhood.Meanwhile, the actor suggested that scenes from Breeders often emulated his real life with his children, right from the beginning."The first scene of the whole series came from a dream where I was going upstairs to shout at my children and talking myself down with each step I took," he recalled."Then [I] opened the bedroom door and went mad at them anyway."Martin has previously admitted to carrying out corporal punishment on both of his children, and "smacking" them on occasions when they fell out of line.He admitted: "Parenting taught me that, having thought I was a good person for 30-plus years, actually I’m not that good."I didn’t think I was Gandhi, but I thought the world was reflecting back to me that I’m all right."Martin's priority was for the show to be "real" and reflect the parenting experiences that fathers - and mothers - genuinely have.However he reports that his eldest child, son Joe, is a fan of the show - and that he even makes suggestions for the scripts."[My kids] joke about me owing them commission because without them, the show wouldn’t exist," he joked.However he added firmly: "That’s not going to happen!"

Mick Jagger, 78, tamed by girlfriend Melanie Hamrick, 35, after bedding thousands of women
A source close to the couple revealed to the Mirror that the Let's Spend The Night Together star "made a commitment to Melanie" during a Christmas time getaway in Mustique."He’s finally ready to settle down and be a one-woman man," the source added.Melanie reached out to him as a friend after his ex-fiancée L'Wren died at her New York home in 2014.The late fashion designer is believed to have had money worries which caused her anxiety to spiral out of control.However, American Ballet Theatre star Melanie stepped in to offer him support, which is said to have gradually blossomed into romance.Now she is the proud mother of their son, Deveraux, who at five is already displaying facial characteristics just like his famous father.At the Rolling Stones concert last month in Liverpool, little Jagger Junior also took the opportunity to practise some of his best Moves Like Jagger as he danced around to his father's music.However Melanie, who is currently a dance choreographer, is adamant that she doesn't think of herself as a "baby mama" - and that she sees the term as derogatory and offensive.“In the technical sense, I’m not married to the father of my child," she conceded, "but I am in a great, wonderful relationship with him, so I don't see myself [as a 'baby mama']."When Marie Claire suggested she had been branded a gold-digger due to the uncommonly large age gap between the pair, she was quick to correct the idea.“I dance with one of the most well-known ballet companies in the world," she continued"To be put in that category is insulting and it’s insulting to my boyfriend.”Melanie has also dismissed the suggestion that she Can't Get No Satisfaction due to her boyfriend's touring lifestyle, assuring the world that she gets
