Kiwi mums across the country were celebrated on Sunday, and for Toni Street, it was an extra special day – as it was her first Mother's Day with her baby boy Lachie.

Lachie – who is now 9 months old – was born via surrogate, and so it was only right that Toni shared a heart-warming tribute to the woman who helped bring her adorable baby boy into the world.

Alongside a snap of her with her three children Juliette, Mackenzie and of course, little Lachie, Toni wrote: "First Mother's Day as a mama of three. Thinking of you today Sophie Braggins for making this happen."

So sweet!


Sophie - who also happens to be Toni's best friend - gave birth to Lachie in August last year.

She kindly offered to carry Toni's biological child as Toni's autoimmune disease Churg-Strauss syndrome meant it was too dangerous for her to go through another pregnancy.

Meanwhile, Hits host Stacey Morrison shared a moving message about her mother, who she lost in 2002 when she was only 27.
