Transtasman bubble joy: Daughter surprises mum live on air with news she’s coming home

Aussie mum Michelle Daniels couldn’t control her tears today after her Kiwi-resident daughter Chelsea called her live on Newstalk ZB radio to surprise her with news she had booked flights home.

Adelaide-born Newstalk ZB reporter Chelsea had not been back to visit her family in more than a year after the Covid-19 pandemic restricted travel between New Zealand and Australia last year.
