Sunrise star Natalie Barr makes emotional confession as a parent: ‘I’ll cry next week’
Natalie Barr says she became emotional at the thought that her youngest son Hunter was about to graduate from high school.
The 17-year-old student had his last day on Friday and his famous mother, 55, said she would “cry” next week at her final assembly.
Speaking to pregnant Miranda Kerr on Sunrise that morning, Natalie told the Australian model to make the most of her four boys’ childhood years.
“It’s my last child’s last day of school today, so I know it’s busy, but make the most of it,” she told the beauty who is expecting her fourth child at CEO Evan Spiegel.
“Because then you’ll cry like I will next week when they have their assembly.”
Natalie Barr, 55 (pictured), revealed she became emotional thinking about her youngest son Hunter, who was soon to graduate from high school.
It comes just weeks after Natalie admitted she felt like a “failure” as a mother after giving birth to her first son, Lachlan.
The Sunrise presenter, who shares Lachlan, 22, and Hunter with husband Andrew Thompson, said she felt like a “useless mum” when she couldn’t get her firstborn to sleep when she was baby.
She admitted on the No Filter podcast late last month that she had become “distraught” by the situation.
Speaking to pregnant Miranda Kerr on Sunrise, Natalie told her to make the most of her younger years with her children as the TV presenter will be “crying” next week when Hunter finishes high school.
“I was so distraught because I had a baby who wasn’t sleeping and it was, as many moms know, a helpless feeling,” she told host Mia Freedman.
“My father had just died, I was six months pregnant when my father died, so you think, is that why? Am I still grieving?
Natalie then revealed that a woman in her mother’s group was blaming her for going back to work, claiming that was the reason her baby wasn’t sleeping.

“There’s all this useless information everywhere. You take responsibility for everything, you feel like a useless mum,” the breakfast show host confessed.
Lachlan’s agitation became so bad that Natalie and her husband Andrew, who are notoriously reserved about their children, sought help from a “baby whisperer”.
Natalie then revealed that her second son, Hunter, born four years later, was sleeping much better.
The journalist has spoken openly in the past about the difficulties she faced as a mother when her boys were young and admitted she struggled being at home.
