"My mom reminded me of a great saying that goes something like 'Don’t be sad that it’s ending. Be happy that it happened'. I can’t remember the exact wording so pls share it if you know it; And I would love to hear any other comforting words that might come in handy as I celebrate this milestone with my first born today."

Her co-stars Amy Robach and Sam Champion both sent their love and support, with Sam sharing heart and fist bump emojis, while Amy commented: "Congratulations- I’m in the same boat girl - bittersweet and beautiful."

Lara shares her two teenage children, Duff and Katharine, with her ex-husband David Haffenreffer.
