Maura Derrane shares magical pictures with her son on recent Lapland trip

The TV host afforded us with an insight into her winter holiday on Instagram.

The lovely Maura Derrane went on the dream holiday recently, taking her four-year-old son Cal to Lapland.

The stylish mum of one posted some pictures on her Instagram account of the snowscape and it really looked magical.

Forty-eight-year-old Maura shared a snap with Cal right next to a reindeer in matching snowsuits and people adored it.

Her followers were quick to compliment the photo saying:

“Beautiful photo and precious memories to cherish. You look fabulous Maura.”

She also posted a gorgeous snap next to an open fire – it doesn’t get much more hygge than that!

Maura recently opened up about being an older mother. She told the RTÉ guide:

“The only thing you can hope for your child is that you’ll live long enough to see them grow up.

Sometimes I think ‘Oh Lord, I’ll be 80 and Cal will be in his 30s’ or at least I hope I will.”

The Today Show host returned to work this week and while we were glad to have her back on our screens, we really hope she had an amazing holiday – it certainly looked like she did.
