Michelle Heaton's daughter Faith at ballet performance

SINGER Michelle Heaton has revealed her daughter is just like her when it comes to performing.

The former Liberty X star (35) was as proud as punch as her daughter Faith took to the stage for the first time last week.

"This week has seen one of my proudest moments yet as a mum. Faith was part of a big show at her theatre school," the TV presenter said.

She explained how the 3-year-old has been learning ballet for the last number of months and "jumped at the chance" to show off her new talent on stage.

Despite making a few mistakes during her performance, the mum-of-two was still delighted with her eldest child's efforts.

"She started with them a few months back for ballet lessons and jumped at the chance of being part of their annual production," she explained.

"My little princess was a vision of beauty in her glittery outfit.

"Bless her, maybe next year she'll get the moves right - trust Faith to run around the stage in the wrong direction."

Michelle admitted she felt emotional while watching Faith perform, saying: "As I felt a united, 'Ahhhhh, bless her', from the audience, there was a real lump in my throat."

The brave mum, who had a full hysterectomy last year after being finding out she had a mutated BRCA2 gene, also revealed that she hopes to follow in Katie Price's footsteps and renew her wedding vows with her Dubliner husband Hugh Hanley.

After almost five years of marriage and two children together, Michelle said she would like to have Faith (3) and AJ (1) see them renew their vows.

The star, who attended the model and husband Kieran Hayler's vows in over the weekend, said she believes it's a great idea.

"I'd love to do it with Hugh one day. Who knows, maybe next year," she added.


The former girlband member also criticised Kim Kardashian for sharing a picture of daughter North dressed in a bulletproof vest.

The reality star sparked controversy when she tweeted the picture of her 1-year-old daughter in the protective vest last week.

"To be honest, most things Kimye do confuse me, but while I do write about Faith and AJ in my blog, I'd never use them to try to make a political point," Michelle said.
