Whee! Gretchen Mol and 19-month-old son Ptolemy John celebrate a successful slide in the West Village on Wednesday afternoon.

The former Life on Mars star, who posed on a recent cover of Cookie with her little boy, says you have to roll with the punches of parenthood. “Some days, you have it easy. Other days, you’re the person wrestling with the stroller and screaming in public,” she explains. “I’ve been on both sides.”

Dad is director Kip Williams, Gretchen’s husband of four years.

I don’t know why, but for some reason I just love these two : ) They seem like two perfect little peas in a pod and I love that Gretchen is always seen out and about with him! So cute.

Cute boy!
How exactly do you pronounce his name though? I’m very curious.

Oh Ptolemy is precious! He really is. Jazz, you pronounce it as ” Tol-emy” on

These two are really cute together! On a related subject, was anyone else totally disappointed with the ending of the Life on Mars series?!

UggaMugga, I wasn’t expecting that ending to Life on Mars at all either.
