Savannah was overjoyed to be reunited with her family after so long 

The TV star - who also has an older brother, Camron - is incredibly close to her family and throughout the global pandemic she's told fans how she has longed for a hug from her mum.

The tragic death of Savannah's father when she was younger made the bond between them even stronger. 

She spoke about it during a segment on the Today show in 2017 when she opened up about going off to college shortly after her dad passed away.

Savannah's children were also reunited with their other grandmother 

"We both decided to live at home," she said of herself and Annie. "And we had a spoken or unspoken pact that on the weekends, even though we were college girls, one of us would always stay home on one of the weekend nights so that my mom wouldn't be alone. That was just something we did together as sisters."
