"Ella hasn't really seen many people, and my dad cried the other day, he said he just wanted to hold her," Ola said. "I was FaceTiming my mum and dad and Ella was watching the phone. My dad was making all of these noises and speaking to her, and she was really smiling and moving and my poor dad just bursts into tears!"

"Your mum was laughing at him," James added fondly. "But at the end of the day, we wouldn't want to put them at risk on a plane." Ola agreed, adding: "The thing is, I don't know when it would be safe for them. I don't want to put them at risk. Even if everyone starts flying tomorrow, I'd still want them to wait."

Speaking about when the proud grandparents might finally meet Ella, James said: "I reckon she's going to be a year old when they meet Ella." Ola seemed less sure, adding: "I don't know, I would like to hope that they would come for Christmas but I don't know! No one knows. I don't know when I'm going to see them and it's really heartbreaking."
