lisa snowdon 48 says she has made peace with not having kids

Lisa Snowdon has revealed she has ‘made peace’ with the fact she will never have children with her fiancé George Smart during a candid interview.

The TV presenter, 48, told Ok! magazine that she knows ‘being a mum wasn’t meant for her in this life’, as she discussed her future with George, 41.

The This Morning regular insisted that she doesn’t feel ‘childless’, due to the close nature of the relationships she has with her nieces and nephews.

Lisa and George announced their engagement in 2017, after the entrepreneur surprised her with a ring while making her coffee one morning.

When questioned about whether she sees them having children, Lisa replied: ‘No, no, no! I’m going to be 49 in January. I can’t believe it.’

‘I’ve totally made peace with it now. Being a mum wasn’t meant for me in this life. My niece Willow is bonkers, she’s just like me. We’ve got five little nieces and nephews all under the age of eight and they’ve this little crazy bunch.’

Explaining that she doesn’t feel ‘childless’, the star added: ‘We get to hug them and then we get to say goodbye. We don’t feel childless because Willow is always texting me and we’ve got a lot of contact with them on a daily basis.’

George agreed that they feel ‘very lucky’ to have nieces and nephews, before sweetly admitting that Lisa has always been his ‘priority’.

Earlier this year, Lisa said she often feels ‘sad’ seeing families on Instagram after deciding to not have children – but says she enjoys the ‘freedom’ it brings her lifestyle.

The model, who is unable to conceive naturally, told Closer she discussed having children through IVF with her fiancé, shortly after they became engaged. 

They ultimately chose not to go through the ‘tough process’ of fertility treatment.

While Hertfordshire-born Lisa insisted she couldn’t be happier with entrepreneur George, there are times when it’s difficult to see other people with their children on social media.

Speaking about how she decided against going down the route of IVF, she told the magazine: ‘I knew I was well into my 40s and it would be a tough process and I very much enjoyed the freedom our lifestyles gave us.

‘Although I have moments when I feel sad seeing Instagram pages with pictures of other people’s kids, I’m a realist. But I feel so blessed that I’ve met George and I really couldn’t be happier with how things are’.

The TV presenter, who had a fertility test when she was 39 which showed her chances of falling pregnant would be low, admitted she had even considered freezing her eggs. 

But after thinking long and hard about children, her Yorkshire-born partner told her he ‘just wanted to be with her’.

She told the magazine: ‘We discussed alternative ways to do it and he said “Do you know what? I want to be with you. It’s about me and you”.’

Lisa has previously opened up about having children and earlier this month posted a message on Instagram revealing she sometimes craves ‘a family of my own’, despite admitting ‘it is too late’ for her to have her own children. 

She told MailOnline: ‘I didn’t have kids and that decision was made for me. I wasn’t with the right people so I didn’t want to bring a child into a relationship where I wasn’t happy or would have to do it by myself.

‘I’m quite fortunate that I came to terms with not having my own family but that doesn’t stop me when looking at Instagram.

‘It didn’t happen for me. It’s too late for me. I’ve come to terms with that. I’m sad for people that can’t come to terms with it, my heart breaks for them. It’s the maternal instinct that will never go.’ 

Lisa is really close to her nephews and nieces; Filey, eight, Willow, six, Rudie and Sidney, both three, and six-month-old Stella, and loves that she can give them back to their parents at the end of the day.

‘I’m with my sister and her kids a lot. George’s brother has two gorgeous little girls aged three and six months.

‘Finley is eight, Willow is six and Ruthie is three. I don’t feel childless because I get all the fun stuff and then I can give them back.

‘They’re a nightmare to get out the house when we have a time frame. I feel very lucky I have that fix.

‘I don’t think I could love them anymore if I’d had them and birthed them. I love them so much.’

She advises other women in her situation to ‘get amongst your friends’ kids’ for ‘cuddles, connection and love’.        

The model and presenter first dated George years ago when they both worked for MTV, but it wasn’t until the pair were reintroduced to each other through a mutual friend four years ago that their relationship was rekindled.

In January 2017, the couple announced they were engaged after 14 months of dating.

Lisa has enjoyed a number of high profile relationships over the years – most notably her five-year, on-off romance with George Clooney.

today co anchor craig melvin surprises overlooked school with free laptops and internet access

Students and teachers across the U.S. are trying to navigate the new normal of virtual and hybrid learning amid the coronavirus pandemic and, unfortunately, not all are equipped to handle the changes. 

Today co-anchor Craig Melvin stepped in to help out one such group of students in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, and joined DailyMailTV’s Thomas Roberts exclusively on Friday to talk about the big surprise.

The 41-year-old broadcaster partnered with Dell and NBC’s parent company, Comcast, to outfit teens from the underserved school district with new tech equipment and internet access.

‘This is one of those schools in one of those school districts that’s often been overlooked,’ Craig explained. ‘And, a number of students there have been on the frontlines, if you will, in this fight against COVID-19.’ 

In McKeesport, 65% of students live below the poverty line and the city is one of the most dangerous in the country. 

According to superintendent Mark Holtzman, over 50% of students enrolled in the high school were also working jobs in essential services. 

When the COVID-19 pandemic first hit, the school was forced to shut its doors which meant losing contact with many students who didn’t have computers or even internet access. Virtual learning was nearly impossible.

'This is one of those schools in one of those school districts that's often been overlooked,' Craig explained. 'And, a number of students here have been on the frontlines, if you will, in this fight against COVID-19.'

‘It was like a nightmare,’ Holtzman told Today. The superintendent went on to say that the education of the students was forced to the back burner at the start of the crisis as he tried to figure out whether or not the children’s basic needs were being met at home.

‘When we heard about the fact that they were lacking adequate internet access and also lacking just the devices to get online and to do the remote learning we thought “Oh, here is an opportunity to do some good,”‘ Melvin told DailyMailTV. 

To reveal the big donation, Melvin traveled to Pennsylvania and got students together outside on the football field at McKeesport Area High School.

Nicola quit Made In Chelsea at the end of 2016 after more than a year on the show, following the breakdown of her romance with Alex Mytton.  

The former couple were an item for two years, after meeting in August 2014 while he was DJing in Ireland.

However, Nicola, who was once romantically linked to Cheryl’s ex-husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, was left heartbroken when he ended their romance via text, while she was enjoying a family holiday in Florence, Italy.

Speaking to Hot Press magazine in 2018, Nicola said of their split: ‘He cheated on me and it all kind of went spiralling downwards. Oh, God, I was devastated. Absolutely. I’ve had counselling about it.

‘In extreme cases, when I broke up with my ex, I took tablets to calm me down. Or if I’m travelling I take some stuff to calm me down. I’m a really bad traveller – planes, tubes, sometimes in taxis. I don’t like being in any confined space.

‘I go to events regularly and they can make me panicky because I’m surrounded by loads of people. So, it’s weird the job I do because I do suffer from that really badly.’

The rumored couple were first spotted out together in March during an outing at Delilah before pictures of them getting increasingly cozy began to surface in July.   

Rexha has claimed publicly that her last relationship ended in 2015 after saying she was not ‘one to throw her heart around.’

Talking to Health in May 2019, Rexha spoke out about her sexual fluidity, revealing, ‘I just want to find someone I love and who loves me—and I don’t care if that’s a boy or a girl.’ 

Five years later it appears as if she has found her happy ending though she admits to being incredibly guarded.

On her birthday, the singer took to the virtual VMA stage to present Video of the Year to the Weeknd for his song Blinding Lights. 

When it comes to new music she shared on social media that she would not be releasing her new music until ‘the world is in a better place.’
