Rochelle Humes fights back tears as she sends kids back to school after lockdown lifts

ROCHELLE Humes has been seen fighting back tears as she took her seven-year-old daughter back to school.

The 31-year-old, who is mum to Alaia, 7, Valentina, 3, and Blake, 4 months, shared the emotional moment on her Instagram stories.

Singer Rochelle appeared teary-eyed as she told fans it was "harder than she anticipated" to do the school run for the first time in months.

The video comes as children returned to school for the first time after the third national lockdown closed classrooms across the country.

"I've just dropped off Alaia at school and that was harder than I actually anticipated," the former Saturday's member revealed.

She warned mums and dads to "prepare" for the moment they had to part with their kids if they "haven't done the school run yet".

"[Alaia] was happy this morning and excited – and then she said, 'I'm worried I'm going to miss you'," Rochelle recalled as she wiped away a tear.

"I said, 'Are you joking? You're going to be back with your favourite people', and I just didn't make a big deal out of it.

"When we got to the gates she started crying and obviously I didn't and I was like, 'You're going to have the best day, this is amazing!'

"Then she shut the door," Rochelle went on, before explaining she started to sob – emulating the sounds of someone crying.

Admitting she cried down the phone to her mum, she concluded: "It's so weird, because we've been waiting for this day for so long.

"I'm so desperate for homeschooling to be over and I'm so desperate for them to have normality. That was harder than I thought it was going to be."

Last year, the star opened up about feeling  "awful" for not realising her daughter Alaia needed glasses after she complained about her sight.

She wrote: "My Alaia has been complaining about her eyes and that she wants to sit at the front of the class with her friends so she can see better, she also says that her eyes are blurry every time it’s time to go to bed.

"Being a Mum that normally knows when my kids are trying their luck I honestly have been dismissing it, I thought she was stalling going to bed and wanted to sit at the front of class so she could have a gossip with her best friends.

"Turns out I was wrong..she needs glasses…How do I feel? AWFUL. Being a parent isn’t easy is it?"

Rochelle has been taking it easy since giving birth to her son Blake in October, her third child with husband Marvin, 35.
