Ryan Tubridy shared a heartwarming story about his beloved mother Catherine on the radio this morning.
Speaking on his RTÉ Radio 1 show, the broadcaster told listeners that he’s been getting up extra early lately, so he can deliver the morning newspapers to his mother.
The 47-year-old revealed: “For the month of January, it started by accident, I said I’d drop the papers down to my mother’s house.”
Ryan then explained that when he dropped the newspapers off this morning, his mum had left him a little gift on her doorstep to say thank you.
The TV presenter recalled: “This morning she had left a gorgeous thing…”
“It was an envelope with photographs of all the children in the family from Christmas a year ago as a little gift for me.”
“I thought, what a nice thing to do? Because it’s a difficult time…”
Ryan then added: “I don’t want to make myself out to be a hero by the way, my sisters do more than I will ever be willing to admit to.”
“As I always say to my sisters if you need anything done, call someone else and that’s the joke but it’s a true story in some ways.”
The news comes after Ryan shared exciting news for fans of The Late Late Toy Show this week.
