Suzanne Shaw Foresees Racing in her Son's Future

Celebrities sometimes don’t want their children following in their footsteps, but Suzanne Shaw is not one of them. In fact, if her and ex-boyfriend Darren Day‘s 3 ½-year-old son, Corey Mackenzie, wants to join the entertainment business she will "just make sure he knows that it’s very unpredictable at the best of times." However, Suzanne, 26, thinks that her sons has a different career choice in mind.

I think it’s more likely he’ll be a racing driver if his obsession with toy cars is anything to go by, but of course I would support him in whatever he wanted to do.

Juggling her acting and singing career along with motherhood is hectic, and the Brit star shares that the only way she can handle it is with her "amazing network of family and friends around me," adding that "my boyfriend JK [Jason King] is fantastic with him." That’s not always a good thing though — "They are a little team and sometimes even gang up on me," Suzanne laughs. Thanks to the support of those around her, Suzanne was able to participate in and win the UK reality show Dancing on Ice earlier this year — an experience she found comparable with Corey’s delivery, minus one part!

It was the most intense experience of my life, apart from giving birth to Corey, although at times it was more painful than childbirth!

I remember seeing a lot of her son when she would bring him to the Dancing On Ice live shows. There were times when I began to wonder if Corey was going to be a new contestant, we seemed to see more of him than what was happening on the ice! He’s cute, looks very like his dad.

Suzanne lives in the same town as me. She often has Sunday lunch in the local pub. The last time I saw her was a few weeks ago, she was fussing over my daughter after she banged her head and Corey kissed it better! He is a very confident little boy and is also very polite. He chooses what he wants from the menu and is very chatty with everyone. They seem like really good friends as well as mother & Son!
