We're living rightby Central Park. It's amazing, so amazing actually. It's C2ADeverything I've ever wanted. "My life could not be lovelier.
Max was one of the reasons I did the show to be honest.
I wanted to take him to America with Julia and for us tolive here for a few months so that when he's older we can say, 'You did that.' "Every day so far there's been a C2ADmoment where we are walking through the park or having a picnic and Jules and me look at each other and say, 'Oh my God, this is b**ody amazing.'"
