When Asher Keddie agreed to reprise her role as the loveable Nina Proudman on Offspring it came with one very important condition- that she be allowed to bring her 11 month old son to work every day.
The 41 year old actress took a 12 month break to have her son Valentino with husband Vincent Fantauzo and it looks like she is not ready to part with him just yet. Asher had it written into her contract that her adorable son could accompany her on set during filming of the new season of the popular Channel 10 series.
‘I will be bringing my child to work every day, that was part of the deal,’ she said.

Asher stated that she was nervous about returning to work with such a young child.
‘It was a little nerve-racking but I absolutely know why we’re here,’ she said.

In a previous interview the actress gushed about motherhood and how important it was for her not to miss any one Valentino’s milestones.
‘It’s been fantastic with the baby, I love it. He is going to come with me, so I’m going to have him while at work,’ she admitted.
Kat Stewart, who plays Nina’s neurotic by loveable sister Billie, will also be bringing her child to the ‘family friendly’ set. Kat’s daughter, Georgia was born in April this year and also has a little brother – Archie, who is 4.
I think it will only enrich the experience of doing the show having them around,’ the 43 year old Kat said.
‘Archie was on set with me when he was really little and I’m doing the same with Gigi,’ she said.
Offspring has been off our screens for more than 12 months and will return to Channel 10 on June 29th!
