BBC Breakfast presenter Emma Vardy has embarked on her first road trip with her newborn son Jag ahead of her big move to the United States.
Over the summer, the journalist, who is the BBC’s Ireland correspondent, stepped in for Nina Warhurst who is currently on maternity leave. Not long after, Emma welcomed her first child last month.
Revealing that she traveled to the UK this week ahead of her permanent move, the journalist gave fans an insight into her journey with her three-week-old son.
“Baby Jago is starting his travel career early!! He is 3 weeks old, and the three of us are already on our first flight together on a short trip to friends and family in England. The beginning of many…”, she wrote in the caption.
Don’t miss it
Her followers were quick to react, with one writing: “You’re a machine. I’m not sure we’d even be able to get on the bus after three weeks.” Another said: “You look fantastic 3 weeks post baby! Huge feat getting on a plane with a baby! Have fun on your travels x.”

A third post read: “WOW! I can’t tell if I’m more impressed by the baby or his parents! Either way, congrats!!”
The trip comes a week after Emma revealed she will be leaving her role in Ireland to become the BBC’s LA correspondent. “We sure have had our hands (and hearts) full lately, now my little family has a big adventure ahead,” she wrote last week. “After an amazing 5 years in Northern Ireland, Jago Fionn @mr_plusone and I are off to real Hollywood!”
Confirming her new role at the BBC, Emma added: “Not for my acting skills, but to become the BBC’s LA correspondent… covering everything from red carpets to the presidential election and catching a few waves.
“I absolutely loved my time in Northern Ireland and it will always have a special place in my heart. I will cherish our final weeks before we say goodbye to NI [heart emoji].”
