GOOD Morning Britain’s Laura Tobin gave a rare update on her personal life live on the show today, bursting with pride as her daughter started school.
The 39-year-old star told viewers how four-year-old Charlotte had bravely defied all odds as she enjoyed her first day yesterday – having been born extremely prematurely.
Charlotte was just 2lb 8oz when she was born at 27 weeks in July 2017.
Speaking to Sean Fletcher before she delivered the weather on Good Morning Britain, the proud mum couldn’t resist sharing a photo of her little girl in her primary school uniform.
She gushed: “I think it’s a little more special than most people starting school, viewers are aware that she was born really prematurely. She was born just before 28 weeks in July, it should have been October, so she was born in the completely wrong school year.
“I guess we always thought she’d start school next year, September 2022, you can defer a child in that situation. But they’re so happy with her progress and how she’s doing, she started almost a year early.
“So we are just so proud of her, she ran in and had two and a half hours, day off today, back tomorrow. A wonderful, wonderful day.”
Sharing the same photo to her Instagram page last night, Laura had added of Charlotte: “She has blown us all away with how she has developed, she is amazing, kind and clever and here we are staring school ‘early’.
