Former Seinfeld star Julia Louis-Dreyfus is receiving kudos for a role she's played recently: that of a doting mother!
Louis-Dreyfus, 56, was recently spotted at her younger son Charlie's basketball game, cheering loudly as she watched her son's Northwestern Wildcats take on the Rutgers' Scarlet Knights. Big congrats are in order for the entire Northwestern men's basketball team as this is their first NCAA tournament ever!
As the game drew to a close, ESPN filmed her reaction, and in typical fashion, she was downright hilarious!

The Veep star can be seen recording her son on her phone. As soon as the play starts she's hooting and hollering, totally cheering on her son. When Charlie grabs a rebound, she throws her hands up and rises to her feet with her husband.

Louis-Dreyfus and her husband of 29 years, Brad Hall, are the parents of two boys: Henry, 24, and Charlie. Hall, 58, is a Northwestern alum, so he must be particularly proud to see his son play for his alma mater.

"We do not miss a game," she told the Chicago Tribune. "If we can be there, we are," she said, but if productions schedules are too busy Louis-Dreyfus will always watch the game on TV.
"We think he is outstanding in every regard. We're his biggest fans."
It's hard out there for a mom. We all have days when we forgot the diaper or the game after school--or simply tried too hard. Here, some funny examples!
