So much for rest and relaxation! Busy Philipps gave fans a sneak peek at her nighttime ritual when she shared a flirty photo from her bathtub, only to discover she wasn't alone. 

The Girls5eva star slipped into the tub with a good book and shared the photo on Instagram, but her social media followers weren't her only audience as she revealed her 12-year-old, Birdie, had appeared in the bathroom for a chat too.

She wrote: "Today, my incredibly talented friend @caseyrosewilson has her FIRST BOOK OUT! #thewreckageofmypresence is hilarious and moving and inspiring and you should buy it ASAP (from an independent bookseller if you can!) because you’re gonna want to add it to your own book clubs and talk about it with your friends and it’s just a delightful book that feels like you’re chatting with your friend."

Busy revealed that the author is also a big fan of a bath so it was the perfect place for her to read it.

Busy was enjoying her friend's book when she got a visitor 

She then added: "Please swipe to see how committed I am to bath time that I sometimes have visitors like while I was taking this picture."

The second photo was of Birdie sitting in a chair with a phone and appeared to also be deep in conversation with Busy. 

Her followers loved the post and found it so relatable too: "When you just want privacy. I can relate," wrote one, while a second added: "Best bath photo ever!"
