Ulrika Jonsson praises daughter Bo for working hard to become Norland nanny

Ulrika Jonsson has paid tribute to her "determined" and "loyal" daughter Bo on her milestone 21st birthday.

In a post shared to her Instagram account on Tuesday morning, the former Gladiators host gushed over Bo as she offered an update on her training to become a nanny at the prestigious Norland College – which she began in 2018.

Ulrika, who woke up with "two men in her house" after "drunk night out", also expressed gratitude at Bo ringing in her 21st after doctors expressed concerns about her lifespan after she was born with a congenital heart defect, which she still receives treatment for.

"Happy 21st, my darling, Bo Eva Coeur. Well, this was a day I never thought I'd see," Ulrika penned. "They said they hoped you'd live to be a teenager – but here you are in all your glory."


Ulrika continued: "You found your vocation and you're working so hard at Norland to become the very best @nannybojonsson there is."

Three years ago the television personality revealed that Bo had accepted a place at Norland College in Bath.

Sharing the news on Instagram at the time, Ulrika wrote: "This one's face. The face of a girl who has just been offered a place to train as a Nanny at Norland College! We're now all in tears….'

It is the same school where Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, the nanny of Prince William and Kate Middleton's three children, trained.


Norland College has been known for producing nannies for the rich and famous for over a hundred years.

Tuition comes at a hefty £36,000 in total, and students are required to wear distinctive uniforms. Alongside the traditional curriculum, the likes of martial arts training and stunt driving are also taught to cater for high-profile clientele.

Meanwhile, Ulrika continued to gush over her "four seasons in one day" daughter, Bo.

"You're stubborn. You're very nice. But like all Scorpios, you have a sting in the tail," she wrote.

Ulrika added: "You're determined and wilful. You're a loyal, fun friend. You have the best laugh. You're also a bit stoopid at times. But you're savvy and sassy; an emotional mess; energetic, needy, dramatic, obsessive and sensible: all in one day.

"Happy Birthday, my four-seasons-in-one-day child. Happy birthday, my daughter I didn't know would live. Happy birthday to my ugly duckling who actually turned into a beautiful swan.

"We love you. Almost as much as you loved @joe_sugg and @harrystyles 100yrs ago. #congenitalheartdefect #chd," Ulrika concluded.
