After welcoming her first-born baby Harry just a month before the UK went into the first Covid-19 lockdown, Michelle shared a gorgeous photo of her cradling her newborn, penning a touching caption to thank the NHS staff who helped her in her birth journey, despite her health worries.

"Myself and Jeff will never be able to thank the staff at the Princess Royal Maternity Hospital in Glasgow for the care and attention they’ve given us over the last 9 months to ensure our darling son was delivered safely into the world," Michelle wrote.

"As a type 1 diabetic my pregnancy was to be a little more challenging but thanks to the constant support from the phenomenal diabetic and obstetrics teams at the Princess Royal I sailed through it with no complications, something I could never have done on my own," she added.

"We are so so lucky to have our NHS in Scotland 🏴 To each and every one of the incredible staff I met during my week in hospital I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you did for me and my family. You gave me the light of my life in my son and I’ll be forever in your debt.

"To think of our country without our NHS is unimaginable so here’s to supporting our National Health Service and all the angels who work within it ❤️."
