SUNRISE presenter Nat Barr was reduced to tears on live television after a mother was incredibly generous for her daughter on the show.
Nat and co-host Matt Shirvington interviewed Auora Iler and her mother Cat about her nomination for the Gold Coast Bulletin’s Women of the Year Awards.
The teenage filmmaker has received widespread acclaim for her films about important issues affecting young Australians.
These include topics such as peer pressure and vaping.
But it’s her latest film, Grape, that boosted her popularity after it was selected for the 15th annual Lady Filmmakers Festival in Beverly Hills.
Unfortunately for Aurora and her family. However, they cannot afford a trip to Los Angeles due to the high airfares.
But in a turn of events unexpected to everyone in the studio, Kat revealed a stunning surprise.
It moved mother and daughter to tears, while Nat herself couldn’t hide her emotions.
“Another finalist in the Gold Coast Women of the Year Awards – her name is Michelle Massey,” Cat said.
“She works for Amplify Travel and your dad and I worked with her and we’re taking her with us. We’re leaving in 11 days!”

Shirvo added: “What a surprise!”
