Gavin Rossdale's mum is delighted her son and his kids with Gwen Stefani are photographed so often - as she can keep up to date with news on her grandchildren.
The former Bush frontman and his singer wife have two sons together, two year old Kingston and Zuma, eight months.
The family live in Los Angeles, which means Rossdale's British relatives don't see the kids very often.
But the rocker's mother Lucy has come up with a novel way of seeing her grandsons' progress - watching the family's exploits through the media.
Rossdale says, "She goes, 'I saw a great picture of you guys.' I played a show in L.A. and there's a picture of Kingston at the sound mixer - he's wearing a Rasta hat, he's got sunglasses on and he's got a microphone that's switched off - but he's singing.
"My mom's like, 'Did you see that picture? That was the best picture!' I was like, 'Yeah, it was a paparazzi picture.' And she says, 'Yeah, but if we didn't have that we wouldn't see what you're doing.'"
