Scottish actress Kelly MacDonald is grateful her rocker husband Dougie Payne is on a break from his band Travis - because the hiatus has left him free to babysit their son while she pursues her acting career.

MACdonald admits she's glad her husband has been on hand to help out, but often feels guilty about leaving him to look after their son on his own.
