Becoming a mother changed me forever. It didn’t happen the way I thought it would, but I wouldn’t change it for anything. It has been the hardest thing I have ever done but has also given me the greatest gift I could never have even imagined. I also have a wonderful mother and had an amazing Nanny too. We’ve always been close, so when it comes to Mother’s Day it’s wonderful to celebrate both being a mother and of course the women who have inspired me too.
