Selma shares Arthur with American fashion designer Jason Bleick who she dated from 2010 to 2012.
Selma’s service dog Scout, who helps her in case she faints, was also spotted in the adorable snap.
‘The thing is, I pass out a lot,’ she told Entertainment Tonight in an interview during her time on Dancing With The Stars.
‘It’s part of the reason I have Scout and it doesn’t mean I lose consciousness [or] it’s a whole ambulance experience, it’s something that I lose my vision, gravity pulls me down and I’m very disoriented and gone for a spell,’ she added.

Selma explained that her dog is ‘kind of there to also catch me, you know, make the ground a little closer with his back.’
She is teamed up on the show with professional dancer Sasha Farber, who shared that Selma once fainted before a rehearsal – but insisted on coming in anyway.
”I’m like: “Take the day off, just chill.” She’s like: “Nope!”‘ Sasha spilled, adding that she stretched their scheduled two-hour rehearsal into a whopping five hours.
Selma brought Scout home this past December on the advice of her neurologist, she revealed to People magazine earlier this year.

She noted that her new English Labrador ‘kept me moving and helped me build stamina’ and noted that her son Arthur, 11, ‘loves knowing Scout is by my side.’
The Hellboy actress explained: ‘It’s a big undertaking, and he’s still young, not yet two, but he’s a tremendous gift. He’s with me all the time.’
She added: ‘If I fall into a big [muscle] spasm or have some trouble moving and need to recalibrate, he can get between my legs, help me get up, and balance me. It’s given me a lot of independence.’
Adding a new friend: Because of her fight with multiple sclerosis, Blair added Scout to her family back in December after a rigorous 18-month-long training process
