It's no secret that Sarah Ferguson is all about her family, even going as far as to describe her "chief role" as being a mum. But not many will be aware of her close bond with her son-in-laws Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and Jack Brooksbank.
The Duchess of York, fondly referred to as Fergie by most, is mum to two daughters Princess Beatrice, 33, and Princess Eugenie, who she shares with the Queen's son, Prince Andrew, 62.
Sarah, who recently described Andrew as a "wonderful father and good grandfather", has often spoken highly of her children and has approved of their choice of partners as Princess Eugenie married bar manager and brand ambassador for Casamigos tequila, Jack, 36, back in 2018, and shares son August, one, with him.
Meanwhile, Princess Beatrice married her property developer other half Edoardo, 38, during the lockdown amid the pandemic back in 2020 and shares daughter Sienna, eight months, with him.
Now, in an exclusive chat with OK! at the launch for her debut adult novel Her Heart for a Compass, Fergie has opened up about her friendship with Jack and Edoardo – who she refers to as simply "Edo".
"With regards to partying, I have the best rookie son in laws," she started before referring to Jack as she said: "And one used to work for a tequila company."
Fergie, who recently said she has her grandchildren over to her place for sleepovers, went on to reveal that she's even Edo's younger brother Alby Shale's godmother.
"So you know, they've got great friends and a lot of their friends are my friends. Yeah, I love my son in law," she continued. "I've known Edo all my life. I'm his brother's godmother. So we've always brought him together. I like partying."
Fergie also spoke out on how she is with her two daughters as she explained they're all best friends – which is a role she puts above being a mum.

"I'm best friends with my children because I watched them be very good mothers," she explained. "I love bringing them up the way I brought them up, which is their feet on the ground.
"And I've always said, 'If you can't go out with a smile, then don't go out until you can smile. Because everyone's watching you, and they'll want you to be smiling."
"To be a good mother is to really listen, to have empathy, to shut the door on the world when… and turn the telephone off," she went on.

Fergie continued: "I do the five points which are: 'Are you cross with me? Are you cross with your father? Are you angry with a friend at school or…' you go through the five points and then you're giving them time to open up to discuss…
"Mothering for me is my chief role. Good mothering means you never forget that you were once a teenager."
