Celeb mums donned their posh frocks for lunch at the Langham Hotel, London, for the annual Tommy’s Let’s Get Baby Friendly Awards – and MFM had a seat too!
The tears were flowing as we heard celeb dad Lee Mead, Patsy Palmer and Stacey Solomon read out letters of appreciation for the winners of their Hero awards.
There was plenty of cheer too, though, as Tommy’s saluted their most baby and family-friendly companies and products.
Sipping pre-lunch drinks alongside Terri Dwyer, Nancy Sorrell and Katy Hill the MFM crew felt more than a little star struck! But we’re pleased to report everyone was very down to earth, especially the lovely Patsy Palmer, who posed for a shot with MFM representative and deputy Editor of Practical Parenting and Pregnancy magazine Jenny Stallard.
And while her little ones are all grown up, we have to give a special nod to our star mum guest, Samantha Bond, none other than MoneyPenny from the James Bond franchise. What an amazing day, thanks Tommy’s!
