CELEBRITIES shared cute pics of their kids going back to school today and got emotional in posts on Instagram.
Stars shared sweet photos of their offspring with some of them in school uniform for the first time in yonks after their extra long summer and months at home during lockdown.
Coronation Street’s Andy Whyment, 39, told fans he was one “proud dad” today.
The soap star, who plays Kirk Sutherland on the Cobbles, wrote: “First day back at school can’t believe @tomwhyment is going to High School and Hollie is going in to year 5 #prouddad xxx”
His former co-star Adam Thomas wrote about five-year-old son Ted, who is big brother to two-year-old Elsie-Rose: “First day back at school for big ted he ain’t so little anymore so today he turned into BIG ted ! So proud of the boy … The perfect son and big brother anyone could ever ask for one day he will show you just how special he is”
While original Towie star Amy Childs said she couldn’t stop crying as her daughter Polly got all dressed up for her first ever day at school.
The little girl wore a yellow summer dress with a blazer and a hat, with socks and shiny new shoes that featured bows.
Amy captioned her post: “Go and get them my darling girl, mummy is so so proud of you , you make me so PROUD your first day at School …. a very emotional mummy today how are you going to school already ps I can’t stop crying! Anyone else today ??? XxX”
Even Piers Morgan melted hearts today when he phoned daughter Elise, eight, live on Good Morning Britain to wish her “good luck” on her first day back at school.
The proud dad took a moment to call his daughter, who he shares with wife Celia Walden, at 8.20am before she headed off to primary school for the new year.
Piers, 55, made the call during the advert break but was caught chatting away to the youngster when the show returned.
The camera landed on the host, who told viewers: “Just speaking to my daughter live on air wishing her good luck on her first day back at school, and all her friends.”
His co-host Susanna Reid called out to the camera: “Good luck Elise!”
Piers joked that Elise had a few stern words for Susanna, who came second on Strictly Come Dancing in 2013, and a warning for Ranvir Singh after she was confirmed as the fifth celebrity to join the 2020 dance competition.
He said: “Susanna, she’s got a message for you.
“It’s fine to have fun on things like Strictly but actually you have to win. So have fun but win.”
Returning to Elise, he said: “Right, Elise I’ve got to go. We’re live on air.”
Rather than taking the blame for Elise’s competitive nature, Piers added: “She’s got three older brothers, it’s all about winning.”
