Lorraine Kelly pays tribute to ‘brave’ mum on Mother’s Day

Lorraine Kelly has shared a sweet tribute to her “inspirational” and “brave” mum.

Lorraine’s mum, Anne, is not well at the moment. Last year, Lorraine rushed to be by her mum’s bedside when she was admitted to hospital. While there, Anne was diagnosed with nephrotic syndrome which is a kidney disorder that causes your body to pass too much protein in your urine.

And at the weekend, the telly favourite issued a health update on her elderly mum – while penning a heartfelt tribute to her.

Fans were quick to send their well wishes to the pair in the comments section. One person said: “AHH what a lovely post, and your mum looks so sweet. Happy Mother’s day to you too Lorraine.”

Someone else added: “Your mum’s looking very well. Lovely photo.” A third added: “Happy Mother’s Day beautiful lady and Lorraine you are so blessed to have your wee mum.”

Lorraine Kelly’s update on mum

In an interview in February with Yours Magazine, Lorraine shared an update regarding her mum with readers. “Mum might need to go on dialysis although she’s doing well at the moment,” she said.

Talking about the impact her mum and grandmother have had on her, Lorraine said they “were a huge influence on me”. She stated: “They taught me to read and write and left books around the house. My parents were working-class, self-taught and well-read people who didn’t get the benefit of university because they didn’t have the money.”
