Rochelle Humes is going through all the emotions as her eldest daughter spends her first night away from home.
The former The Saturdays singer, 34, is the mum to her three children - Alaia-Mai, ten, Valentina, six, and Blake Hampton, two - all of which she shares with husband Marvin, a former member of JLS.
As all parents will relate, the first time a child spends the night away with absolutely no contact is always going to be tough... and right now, Rochelle is feeling all the emotions as Alaia has gone away on her first residential school trip.
While these milestones need to be made, it doesn't make them at all any easier for us parents!
And Rochelle is no exception.
Taking to Instagram yesterday, the This Morning presenter shared a snap of a suitcase and wrote: "Home and just finished packing Alaia's case, she's off on her first-ever residential school trip tomorrow morning until Friday afternoon."
She then revealed: "No contact, I'm not okay."
While Alaia will more than likely have the time of her life with her friends, Rochelle decided to send her off with an adorable little gesture in the form of handwritten notes.
Sharing a snap on her Instagram Stories, Rochelle had folded up two pieces of paper to pack in Alaia's case, with one saying 'Open on night one' and the other saying 'Open on night two'.
Rochelle also indulged in a bit of TLC for herself, writing on Insta: "Comforting myself with a ginger tea and homemade bread pudding my girl @buildandstyle made me."
This comes after Rochelle and Marvin decided to renew their wedding vows last year, ten years to the day they originally tied the knot.
Their three children were all in attendance and actually held major roles in the celebrations, with it being thanks to them that their parents decided to renew their love for one another.
Rochelle told Hello!: "The girls have watched the video and seen the photographs from our wedding day and Alaia, in particular, kept asking, ‘Why wasn’t I there?'"
Although Blake, who was born in October 2020 and was just one at the time, is unlikely to have any memories of the day, Marvin said his son ‘will look back one day and know he was part of it’.
