For some, Mother’s Day can be a bittersweet moment that’s less of a celebration and more of a reminder of a mum that is no longer with them.
Tonight’s hosts of Sunday Project Lisa Wilkinson and Sarrah Le Marquand are examples of two such women. Both mums themselves, Wilkinson lost her mum two months ago, and Le Marquand’s mum passed away when she was 17.
However, their co-hosts had a surprise for them.
While they couldn’t bring their children to the studio itself, The Project team did the next best thing and asked Wilkinson’s three children – Louis, Billi and Jake – to film a special message for their mum.
“Wishing you guys a Happy Mother’s Day to my mum and all the mums on The Project,” said Louis from South Korea.
“We’re so lucky to have such incredible and dedicated mum. I can’t wait until we are all together again so we can shower you with love and gifts. We love you to bits,” said Billi.
Appearing with his cat, Jake shared a similar message.
“Me and my grumpy little cat wanted to wish you a happy Mother’s Day. To the hardest working mum in Australia, love you mum,” he said.
