As we all bask in the afterglow of our favourite day honouring and celebrating our favourite people -- our mums -- we speak to our favourite groom, Brady, of Mrs and Mr Smith fame, and his mum, Lea, about their relationship and their special mother-son bond.

PF: So Lea, what did Brady inherit from you?

L: All the good bits!

B: Too many things to count! Whenever Mum and I do something similar we always put it down to us both being a Leo.

PF: What is the naughtiest thing Brady ever did?

L: When he was little, he raided the biscuit barrel and hid in the car in the garage. I couldn't find him anywhere! It was such an awful feeling not knowing where he was, all the neighbours were out looking for him, and as I came down the road distraught, he calmly came out of the garage oblivious to everything!

PF: Brady, what's the most embarrassing thing your mum has done to you?

B: Mum certainly has had the potential to embarrass me, but she has never embarrassed me in public. (Thanks Mum!)

PF: What did Brady want to do when he grew up?

L: His dream was to be a professional footballer. (We're not sure how close that is to his profession as a Provisional Psychologist?! X PF Ed)

PF: What's your favourite memory of you and your mum together?

B: I still vividly remember spending time with mum at a café in our local area when I was a kid. We used to go there after the grocery shopping and I would always have a banana or chocolate milkshake. The shelves of the café were filled with old teapots and teacups and I would love looking at them all. At the end, I would be allowed to pay the lady and buy a chocolate freckle as a treat.

PF: What is the best piece of advice you can give Brady as an adult?

L: I know your heart is in the right place, so just keep doing what you're doing. Anything is achievable.

PF: What do you love most about Brady? L: So many things! First and foremost, I love his loyalty and love for his family and friends.

PF: And Brady, what do you love most about your mum?

B: She is kind, supportive and hilarious (sometimes without even knowing it!)
