In an interview with Sunday magazine, Paul Henry confessed that he once ran over his daughter Bella when she was a child.
"I ran over her with a tractor once and she was running in screaming and crying to tell her mother that her father had run over her with a tractor," said Paul.
Paul revealed that the accident happened when Bella fell off the trailer which was attached to his tractor.
"She got to the kitchen and I just got there behind her when she said, 'Daddy ran over me with the tractor!' and I said, 'Oh for goodness' sake, obviously, she's exaggerating'.
"Her mother said, 'Bella, turn around and show your father your top,' and she turned around and here was this tyre print right across her top, but it was actually not the tractor.
"She was sitting on a trailer that I was towing and we went over a bump and she went up in the air and fell down and the trailer ran her over," Henry says.
"It's not as bad as she made it sound, she was just trying to get me into trouble."
The father-daughter duo currently work together on Paul’s morning news show Paul Henry where Bella is a makeup artist, and it is clear that she is the apple of her fathers eye.
“What I love about Bella is that she has this extraordinary enthusiasm for things, even things she passionately dislikes,” Paul told Women’s Weekly
”She has a passionate view on things she knows absolutely nothing about and I love that.”
