Gemma McCaw has shared a rare video of her baby daughter Charlotte and we can tell you now it’s probably the cutest thing you’ll see all day.

In the video, which the former Black Sticks captain shared on social media, Gemma’s mother Michelle Flynn (Charlotte’s nana) builds a tower of blocks for Charlotte then knocks it down. Charlotte thinks it’s hilarious and the pair giggle and laugh together as only grandparents and grandchildren do.

Gemma captioned the short clip, “Someone’s happy to see nana.”

Gemma shares a close bond with her Tauranga-based mum and it’s clear to see Charlotte will also share a lovely bond with her nana.

Gemma and Michelle no longer get to see as much of each other as they’d like because Gemma, who grew up in Tauranga, lives in Christchurch with her All Black legend husband, Richie McCaw.

However, they speak on the phone every day and Gemma often travels to Tauranga to visit Michelle and her extended family, who are close-knit.

In May Gemma posted a heartfelt message to Michelle on social media, saying, “Happy mothers day Mum. You truly are the most selfless, caring and loving Mum and Nana I could ever ask for.

“Since having a baby, I have a whole new level of appreciation for you and every parent out there. Thank you for taking the first term off teaching to help us in those first few months. I am eternally grateful for everything you’ve done and will look back on those moments where we laughed, cried and reminisced together with a smile.

“When your family doesn’t live in the same city as you, you cherish the times that you do have with them and I am so thankful for the time I got with you by my side. My heart goes out to all of those people whose mums are no longer with them – thinking of you all ❤️ #mothersday

Gemma and Richie welcomed baby Charlotte into the world in December 2018.

Gemma writes a regular column for Woman’s Day and has writtenabout the exhaustion she felt during the first few weeks of her pregnancy.

She also used her column to express how grateful she was to her midwife for delivering baby Charlotte’s safely.

On navigating the first few weeks of motherhood, Gemma has said, “The first few months of parenthood can be the most physically and emotionally demanding.

“Motherhood is joyous, wonderful and overwhelming, but there are plenty of moments of doubt too. I’ve found that being grateful is the best way to centre myself and shift my perspective during those tough times as a new mum. For example, instead of saying, “I have to do this,” I say, “I get to do this.”

“We can also draw strength in knowing that many other mums are sharing similar struggles and joys. And remember that there is help available – we just need to be brave enough to ask for it.”
