ALISON Hammond has called teen son Aiden "the last real love of my life".
The This Morning star, 47, rarely speaks publicly about her only child, but when she does it's always full of love.
Yesterday she paid tribute to the 17-year-old as he nears manhood, writing: "My baby is growing up so fast. Everyday I pray for him and he will always be the apple of my eye. My Aidan, My last Real love."
The tight-knit mother and son share the same birthday and their bond is undeniable.
It's possibly made even deeper by Alison's regret at not having a bigger family.
She previously told OK!: “I wish I’d banged out two at the same time. As soon as I had Aiden I went straight on contraception because the doctors encourage you to.

Together with co-host Dermot O'Leary, the mum-of-one had spoken to a viewer who fell pregnant aged 50.
The lady named Shelly, who had called into the show, said: "I thought I was going through menopause and I found out I was pregnant. I already had a 20 year old and it changed my life so so much."
Alison replied: "Imagine going to the menopause and finding out you've had a baby? I'm 47 I thought it was the end of my time. I could have another baby."
