ALISON Hammond appeared to break down in tears on This Morning today as she celebrated her 46th birthday.
The star got moist-eyed as she gulped back water during an emotional tribute from pal Dr Zoe Williams.
Former Big Brother star Alison had been celebrating all day on the show and the pregnant doc, 40, wanted to read out her own message.
She said: "Happy birthday, Ali, here's your card, I'll open it for you. It's got a pink flamingo on it, it's a bit soppy."
The star urged her to read it out loud saying: "I love, I like a soppy card, read it to me."
Zoe read: "Alison, happy birthday to you. Have the best day and weekend – as much as you can. Some years bring the best and the worst.
"We're almost through with the worst bits. The best bits are just getting started."
Alison sobbed: "That's just lovely, that was lovely. Thank you."
She's not the first This Morning host to break down in tears as the prospect of good news on the horizon.
Last month Holly Willoughby swept live on air after two singing nuns assured her: "It will all be OK."
Today's This Morning was largely turned over to Alison's 46th, with a huge video tribute unveiled in her hometown of Birmingham.
There was also a video appearance from pal and co-star Josie Gibson, who wished her a happy birthday from her home in Bristol.
But, as many viewers pointed out, there was a spelling mistake in her balloon tribute, which read: Happy Birthray."
