Before the birth of her first child, Laura made it very clear she had no intention of giving up the career she worked so hard to build.

Speaking to The Telegraph she said; “When people ask if I’m going to give up work this year because of the baby, I’m like, ‘Why? Mum did it in ’80s Ireland!’

“My mum grew up the youngest of 13 children in Catholic Ireland. She had a child out of wedlock and worked full-time, which taught me that there’s nothing you can’t do.

“All my friends from school are doctors or teachers. The fact that I even thought it was possible to go off and work at MTV came from my mum because her attitude was: ‘If you want to, then why not?’”
