Michelle Heaton says she’s ‘grateful’ to spend time with daughter Faith after addiction battle

Michelle Heaton has admitted she is "grateful" for the time she now has to spend with her daughter Faith after her addiction battle.

The former Liberty X star, who recently celebrated 200 days sober, enjoyed a day out with the nine year old as they attended a screening for A Merry KIDZ BOP Christmas at London's Odeon BFI IMAX on Saturday 4 December.

Taking to her Instagram account shortly after, the 42 year old, who also shares son Aaron, seven, with husband Hugo Hanley, shared a sweet snap from their mother and daughter red carpet experience.

Gushing about the time she spent with her daughter, Michelle couldn't resist adding a lengthy caption to the picture in which the pair had their arms around each other and smiled for the camera.

"I love my life right now. I can't explain how happy and free I feel. I'm so grateful I am standing here with my girls!" she began.

Michelle continued: "Me, faith & Alyssia have had the most wonderful morning at the premiere of

"So lucky to have met the kids in person, who were kind enough to wait while I got my camera to work!

"And after over 3 years, I got to cuddle one of my longest friends, the beautiful @laylaintl who looks after the kids. #blessed #sobriety."

Earlier this week, Michelle enjoyed a family outing with her husband Hugo and their two children as they visited LaplandUK.

"We @hughhanley have been coming here for 7 years, I can't imagine a Christmas without meeting the elves, helping make the toys for the children around the world, eating at the countless options and stalls, mulled wine (without the wine this year lol) ice skating, popsicles, meeting the huskies and the actual sleigh pulling reindeer and the sleigh it's self!," she wrote.

Michelle, who fought a battle with alcohol addiction following a number of severe health issues, entered rehab in April of this year.

She has been bravely documenting her journey ever since as she continues on her road to sobriety, and her recent Instagram post revealed that she had been 200 days sober.

In October, Michelle shared a candid post as she sent "strength, hope and faith" to any of her followers who may be struggling, revealing that she was working her way through the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.

She penned: "Today, it may seem like the end of the world to you, but there are hundreds and thousands like you. I was one. Almost SIX months ago, i accepted I was powerless over my addictions. I thought it was the end.

"I thought I would fail. I thought there was no hope. But it was just my beginning.. a beginning of a new way of life. A better way of life. One filled with hope, faith and courage. Where there was pain, danger and sadness. We will all have our own journey.
