Lauren’s prayer read: “Dear God. Can I ask that you watch over my new born baby sister Holly so that she will start taking her bottle so that she will be home in time for the Late Late Toy Show. Amen.”

After Ryan read the prayer on-air, the infant’s father Alan Buckley got in touch to say thanks and to let the team know that Holly is doing well.
