Lorraine Kelly sobbed as she enjoyed an emotional moment with Hannah Hawkins’s newborn.
On Friday’s broadcast of her eponymous daytime programme, the 64-year-old host was joined by the husband and infant of ITV producer Hannah Hawkins, who died last month at the age of 33.
Lorraine has assembled a choir of women spared by the Change + Check campaign to raise awareness of breast cancer.
The Change + Check Choir sang their ballad Golden at the close of Friday’s broadcast, and the host was obviously touched as she watched alongside Hannah’s husband Ben and their son Rory.
Lorraine sobbed when she spoke to him after the concert since the baby was born just months before the producer died of breast cancer.
‘Wow, wow, wow. That’s your Mummy’s song, baby,’ she said through tears. ‘That was beautiful.’
Trying to compare herself for the This Morning link, she added: ‘Sorry. Shush. Right, Dermot and Lisa are up next!’
Earlier in the show, Lorraine was joined by Tom and Rory, and Hannah’s distraught husband acknowledged the two of them are “getting by day by day.”
The Change + Check campaign was vital to her, and the family spent an amazing time together only ‘a few hours’ before her death, listening to Golden.
Tom recalled: ‘I was sent a version of the song just a few hours before she died. One of the very special memories I’m going to take forward is playing that to her, the three of us there in the room just taking it all in. It’s very, very special.’
Lorraine also took the moment to tell him how their son is ‘so like her’, adding: ‘Her eyes – he’s got Hannah’s eyes.’
Christmas is difficult for the family, especially since she died only a few weeks ago, and while there are no plans for a large celebration this year, the family will be there for each other.
‘She passed away the day before my birthday, we’ve had our wedding anniversary fall a couple of weeks ago, her birthday as well,’ he explained.
‘Christmas will be a case of just getting through it. We’re obviously not particularly celebrating, but it’s a time where the family is together.’
Lorraine airs weekdays at 9am on ITV1.
