By Jessica Sansome

Good Morning Britain's Laura Tobin paused her weather update for a sweet update on her daughter.

The TV meteorologist was out on location on Wednesday morning as she gave ITV viewers an update on the mini heatwave'.

During a brief chat with Sean Fletcher, who was reading the latest headlines, Laura spoke about daughter Charlotte.

Speaking to Laura, who was in Hampshire, via video link, Sean said on GMB : "Laura, I saw it was Charlotte’s first day of school yesterday.

"It’s always a great occasion for the parents and the child, isn’t it?"

Laura replied: "I mean, I know my whole feed has just been full of people and their children’s first day at school but this is a picture of my little Charlotte and I just think it’s a little bit more special all the viewers are aware she was born really prematurely so she was just born at 28 weeks.

"So she was born in the July, she should have been born in the October.

"She was born in the completely wrong school year."

Laura added: "So, I guess we always thought she would start school next year, September ’22, you can defer children in that situation.

"But they’re so happy with her progress and how she’s doing, she started a year early."

Speaking about how Charlotte got on, the mum-of-one said: "So, we were just so proud of her, she ran in, she just had two and a half hours, she came out, she had a fantastic time.

"She had a day off today, because it was all a bit too much, then she goes back in tomorrow.

"So yeah, it was a wonderful, wonderful day."

Sean said: "It’s amazing how the time flies. I can’t believe how much she’s grown."

Earlier this year Laura's co-star Dr Hilary Jones recalled how he almost had a birth on his hands when she went into labour at the GMB studio.

In July 2017, meteorologist Laura went into labour 12 weeks early after suffering stomach pains as she arrived at work.

But in the most professional of fashion, Laura still attempted to record the weather for the ITV programme.
