Carla Bellucci, 36, mum to Jermaine, 15, Tanisha, 13, and Jayden, 10, from Borehamwood, Herts., said she was taking her lead from actress Liz Hurley, 51, whose son Damian is begging her to change the way she dresses because his mates think she's hot.
But year 10 pupil Jermaine said he had every sympathy with Damien because, like him, he was embarrassed by his mum’s behaviour.
He confessed if he passes her in the street he pretends he doesn’t know her.
“If I see my mum and my sister in the street when I am with my mates I pretend I don’t know her or to not see her,” he confessed. “My mates see mum at school or at my house and tell me how jealous they are.
“They say they want to date her or be me and I just want to die. I wish she’d be like other mums. She should cover up. I’m embarrassed.”
Jermaine told how his pals tried to befriend his mum, who has had breast implants, on social media – forcing him to take the reins of her account.
“The lads constantly try to friend her on social media and I have to go through her account and tell her who to block,” he admitted. “I wish she wasn’t on social media. It’s so embarrassing to be told mum is hot.”
Like Damien, who has confessed to snapping pictures of her mum, Jermaine has also been encouraged to photograph Carla as she poses.
“When we’re on holiday she asks me or my sister to take pictures of her,” he admitted. If she asks me to take a picture of her I deliberately mess it up so she can’t use it.”
And he thinks all parents should be banned from social media or at least only have private accounts.
“I have begged her to set her account to private,” Jermaine confirmed. “I even try and sneak onto her accounts and delete pictures. My mates love trying to find other kids parents on Facebook and Twitter and then ribbing each other. I get why Damian, Liz Hurley’s son, would be embarrassed.
“My mates tell me mum is fit. I hate that because she’s my mum and it’s just gross. If I told them I fancied their mum they’d get all weird too. I hate it when they perve on my mum – I have to live with her. She should understand that.
"Why do teenagers have to suffer like this?”
But Carla, who works in retail sales, said she found her son’s mates’ comments funny – and he needed to accept she was proud of her body.
“My son complains he is embarrassed by my clothes and looks because that his mates tell him I am ‘fit’,” Carla, who is a fan of Liz Hurley, said. “He complains my jeans are too tight, or that I don’t wear clothes that are mumsy enough.
“I am not going to ever be a mum who wears twin sets and pearls. Looking good and wearing on-trend clothes is a great example to my kids."
She continued: “My kids know my motto is, ‘Have pride in yourself and you’ll feel great.’
“I refuse to walk around with a paper bag on my head.”
Like Liz, Carla plans to “still post photos of herself when she is 51”. “Parenting these days is complicated because mums don’t immediately become ‘old’ or ‘old fashioned’ the moment the kids are born or start school,” she explained. “Liz and I are the new generations of mums who are proud of our bodies and looks.
“Cosmetic surgery, skin care products and access to gyms mean we’re able to look better for longer and no one wants to hide that under baggy jumpers and tracksuit pants."
“Just because I look good and am not a wrinkly doesn’t mean should change even for my son. Being embarrassed by your mother is part of growing up.
Kids will just have to get used to it. Being a hip mum means my kids get to do hip and fun things and I know they won’t give those things up.
“Liz shouldn’t back down either. She’s got a fabulous body and I hope I look that good in my 50s. Let’s face it teenage boys will always find something to complain about. That’s how we know we’re being good parents when they complain.”
Liz Hurley wore a very revealing dress for son Damien's birthday.
And this mum and daughter are mistaken for sisters – despite their age gap.
