Michelle Heaton beamed from ear to ear as she posed up a storm with daughter Faith as they attended two film events
Michelle Heaton was all smiles as she enjoyed a day out with her daughter on Saturday.
The Liberty X star – who shares son Aaron and daughter Faith with husband Hugh Hanley – appeared the picture of happiness as she and Faith attended a screening for A Merry KIDZ BOP Christmas at London’s Odeon BFI IMAX.
In snaps captured from the red carpet at the event, the pop sensation – who went to rehab this year to battle her addiction issues – wrapped her arm around Faith as she posed up a storm in a green rollneck paired with patterned shorts.
Faith cut a cute figure in a blue velvet jumper teamed with leggings and appeared in her element alongside her doting mum.
After the first event of the day they then made the most of being in the capital by heading to the BFI Southbank to watch a screening of The Abominable Snow Baby.
Following the fun day out, which Faith’s pal also took part in, Michelle reflected on how grateful she is to be able to make the most of mother and daughter days following her recovery.
Taking to Instagram to share her joy, the A Night to Remember singer penned: “love my life right now I can’t explain how happy and free I feel I’m so grateful I am standing here with my girls !Me, faith & Alyssia have had the most wonderful morning at the premiere of #amerrykidzbopchristmas @kidzbop_uk live from tomorrow on @skytv.”

She continued: ” So lucky to have met the kids in person, who were kind enough to wait while I got my camera to work! And after over 3 years I got to cudddle one of my longest friends the beautiful @laylaintl who looks after the kids. #blessed #sobriety.”
Michelle – whose three-year drink and cocaine battle nearly killed her – recently shared her excitement at spending Christmas with her children this year.
“We’re celebrating Christmas early,” Michelle told The Sun at Christmas Wonderland Lakeside.
“Christmas will be extra special this year, for many reasons.”
After she was asked about her health battle, she said: “I’m doing really good. Thank you, you’re making me well up.”

Michelle had been drinking two bottles of wine and a bottle of vodka nearly every day and snorted cocaine.
It wasn’t until she went to rehab that she realised just how severe her addiction problem was.
“There was a moment when I said, ‘I’m not going’. My best friend kicked off at me and said, ‘Michelle — you’re dying’,” she previously told.
“It was a joint effort from all my very dear friends who wanted me to live.”
She shot to fame on ITV’s Popstars in 2000, which resulted in the forming of Liberty X a year later.
After the band split in 2007 she turned to writing and took TV work.
But in 2012 she discovered that she was a carrier of the mutated BRCA2 gene, meaning she had an 85 per cent risk of breast cancer and up to a 40 per cent risk of ovarian cancer.
She made the agonising decision to have a double mastectomy in 2012 and a hysterectomy in 2014.
The operation sent her into early menopause and she struggled to come to terms with the loss of her female organs.
“The hysterectomy plunged me into early menopause. On paper I’m not recognised as a woman, I have no womanly organs.”
