This isn't the first time the mother-of-three has stunned fans with rare family updates. Back in July, the presenter sparked a sweet fan reaction when she posted a string of photos documenting her father's first ever interaction with Nina's latest family addition: baby Nancy.

Nina and her two sisters have been co-caring their father ever since his devastating dementia diagnosis back in 2022.

During a segment on BBC Breakfast, Nina explained: "We have been fortunate that my dad has never gotten angry... I know that can happen with different forms of dementia, but he didn't understand it was happening. When we had conversations about changing the set-up, maybe giving some respite care he thought nothing was wrong."

She continued: "Having to tell little fibs all the time just broke your heart but it was in his best interest. There were times when, 'If I don't fib to him to get us over this hump, we are not going to get there.'"

The 42-year-old admitted that she felt guilty when she became angry with him, saying: "At that point, it is hard not to be cross and that was the surprising thing, I felt really guilty because I was getting angry with him.

"I was taking it out on him and I had two tiny kids at home that I wasn't seeing as much and I wasn't focused at work, there are these ripples that then go through your family as well."
