This is the heart-warming moment a self-isolating nurse was able to hold her two-year-old son for the first time after being forced apart for 11 WEEKS.
Little George Cole grins as he hugs his care home nurse mum Charlotte for the first time in almost three months.

The two-year-old had been staying with grandparents to keep him safe from coronavirus during the lockdown.
Charlotte and husband Daniel, both 30, made the tough decision after a confirmed Covid-19 case at one of the seven care homes she oversees.
During lockdown the couple could only see the tot through a window.
Charlotte placed her hand on her son’s in heartbreaking photos featured in The Sun in May.
The couple had to distract themselves while George was away, so “painted the fences, the garage, and we eventually ran out of things to do”.
Eleven weeks later, the family are back together in Kirkham, Lancs.
Join our George Cross campaign for NHS staff
SUN readers are today urged to sign a petition calling for our NHS staff to be awarded the George Cross.
Yesterday, we backed a proposal by Lord Ashcroft to honour our health heroes with the gallantry gong given for acts of bravery that did not take place in battle.
A No10 spokesman said: “The NHS is doing a fantastic job and the nation will want to find a way to say thank you when we have defeated this virus.”
SAS hero Andy McNab added: “The award of a George Cross would show an emotional appreciation.”
We are asking readers to sign the petition online at thesun.co.uk/georgecrossfornhs.
Charlotte said: “We went to pick him up and he came running at us — it was so overwhelming.
"I’ve never seen him run so fast and he grabbed on to us so tightly. I never wanted to let him go.
“It was the most difficult decision we ever had to make but also the easiest as we knew it was to keep George safe.”
