'IRELAND AM' presenter Anna Daly is planning a September return to TV3.

The mother of two is on leave for six months to spend time with her eight-week-old son Euan.

The 33-year-old was yesterday crowned the 2013 'Woman's Way' & Lidl Celebrity Mother of the Year.

She admitted that hearing stories of fellow winners made her appreciate how lucky she and husband Ben Ward were to have a healthy, happy family.

Joan Egan (46), from Blackwater, Co Kerry, was named the overall mother of the year at the event in Dublin's Four Seasons Hotel yesterday.

Ms Egan was nominated by her daughter Avril, who described how her mother had helped her through difficult times.

"My mum saved me," Avril said. "She pulled me from the gutter and made me shine again."

Ms Egan took home €5,000 in Lidl vouchers plus €2,000 in pampering and luxury products.
