Joan Collins hasn’t always had the best relationship with her son Alexander Newley.

Her second child, to her second husband Anthony Newley, Alexander (born Sacha) told media in 2015 that while he loved her he felt abandoned by her as a child.

He’d even written a memoir titled Hollywood Child, talking about how he was raised by the nanny because Collins was overwhelmed by being a mother.

Collins has been busy filming season four of The Royals with Elizabeth Hurley, where she plays a sassy mother, so maybe it’s brought out some motherly instincts.

The 84-year-old posted this photo of herself with Alexander on Twitter, describing how proud she was of her artist son.

Even a bathrobe. And bathrobe it was, recently filmed on a break from filming Hurley.

Hurley has said her take on her role as Queen Helena in the series was inspired by Collin and her role in Dynasty. 

“She was the best villain on television,” Liz Hurley said, reported Daily Mail UK.
