"They were all really supportive," she told HELLO!. "Kate had a good bit of advice: she said I should really commit to the training, that there's a lot of laughter, but that it's important to hit the ground running with the training and absorb what I'm being told."

On her son's reaction, she added: "You should have seen his little face – it lit up. I should have videoed it. "He was so excited. I said we were going to have to keep it a secret together, which made it even more exciting."
