Fox News host Laura Ingraham, whose name has been mentioned as a replacement for Tucker Carlson’s old prime-time slot, shared some heartwarming and touching news with fans during an interview published on Mother’s Day.

The Washington Examiner’s Restoring America column noted that Ingraham “discussed her children, her journey with cancer, and the lessons she took from her own late mother, Anne Caroline Ingraham.”

“You think that kids when they get older, it’s easier. And to some extent it is,” said the Ingraham Angle host told the outlet.

But, she added, “The challenges and concerns in many ways get bigger … whether it’s school, or navigating romance, or social media — those kinds of things.”

Ingraham became a mother in 2008 when she adopted her daughter from Guatemala. During the interview, she shared a heartfelt memory, noting that her daughter recently celebrated her 18th birthday, which happened just a day before the interview took place.

“I felt so emotional because it was five minutes ago, it seems when we picked her up from Guatemala,” she recalled. “She was turning three a couple of days after she came to the United States in 2008. And that was the first — it was her first birthday in the United States and my first Mother’s Day.”


She went on to say it seems as though her daughter grew up very quickly, adding it was “terrifying” to watch.

Honestly, it’s just — it’s terrifying,” she said. “But it’s funny, every stage of being a mom, it’s obviously different.”

“It almost does get better as time goes on,” the Fox News host detailed. “For me, I mean, you can really have real conversations with them, and you can share more of life with them. And our relationship has gotten better and better as time has gone on.”

“I’m so thankful for that,” she added.

She admitted that, as her daughter got older, they “butted heads” like parents and their kids tend to do. “But now, I’m finishing my show at night, her light is still on, and we gab and gossip about her day. Same thing with me. And we just — it’s fun,” she said.

“I’m dreading her going to college and not having that,” Ingraham told the outlet. “It’s going to be sad for me.”

On her daughter’s birthday, Ingraham revealed:  “I got so many texts from people who said, ‘You did such a great job. And she’s such a wonderful young lady, and she’s so helpful,’ and that made me — they took all my doubts that I had about how to do things differently. And It just kind of washed it all away.”

“I just feel blessed. I think every day I thank God for these children. More so than anything,” she noted further.

If her daughter someday decides to become a mother herself, Ingraham said she hoped that she instilled certain principles and values in her daughter, like the value of patience and the power of prayer.

“I know my kids are good, and I think she will make those a part of her daily life. To take the time to breathe and thank God for everything,” she said.

Ingraham was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005. She attributed her successful battle against the disease to her unwavering faith in God and the support of prayers, she told Restoring America.

And, as a survivor, Ingraham opened up about the valuable lessons she learned during her journey with cancer and how it has profoundly influenced her perspective on motherhood.

“You just appreciate the time that you’re having when you have it,” she said. “And try not to allow the small stuff to make you sweat too much.”

Her mother died of lung cancer in 1999, she said, adding that she worked as a waitress until the very end.
