Awww! Ed Westwick loves his mum.

The Gossip Girl actor, who is thought to be in a relationship with co-star Jessica Szohr, says he has only been in love once – with his mummy.

“I’ve only been in love once — with my mom,” he said.

“There’s only one woman in my life. Am I a mummy’s boy? Absolutely. I love her.”

The 23-year-old also spoke about not being much of a hit with the ladies when he was younger.

“I was a 24/7 stud. It came effortlessly, girls were dripping off me,” he said.

“No, not at all. I’m joking. I was jealous of one of my friends at school because he was always dating the older, good-looking girls. That never happened to me.”
