Sunrise host Nat Barr has had an emotional reaction on live TV after a mother’s generous act for her daughter was revealed.
Nat and co-host Matt Shirvington were interviewing Aurora Iler and her mum Cat about the teenager’s nomination for the Gold Coast Bulletin’s Women of the Year Awards.
Aurora is a young filmmaker whose movies about important issues affecting young Australians – such as peer pressure and vaping – have received widespread acclaim.

Her latest film Grape has been selected for the 15th annual Lady Filmmakers Festival in Beverly Hills, however high airline prices meant Aurora and her family couldn’t afford to be in LA for it.
However during the moving interview, Cat revealed a jaw-dropping surprise for Aurora – moving the mother and daughter, along with Nat, to tears.
“Another finalist in the Gold Coast Women of the Year Awards – her name is Michelle Massey,” Cat said.

“Oh, that’s so lovely,” Nat said.
Shirvo added: “What a surprise!”
