Arthur Gourounlian is saying goodbye to his mum Maria as her visit to Ireland comes to an end.
Maria had been enjoying a trip to Ireland visiting Arthur, his husband Brian Dowling, and new grand daughter Blake, for the past three months. Being there for some of the tiny tot’s biggest milestones, like her Christening day, and first Christmas. But now she is returning to Belgium.
Sharing just how much he will miss mum, Arthur posted a sweet tribute to Maria, with photos and videos documenting all the happy moments from her trip.
Writing: “We laughed, we cried, we partied, and we danced. What an amazing three months that was spent with you Maman Cherie aka Tati.”
Continuing: “It was our first time spending so much time together since I left home when I was 16. That was over 26 years ago. The memories we have created over the past 3 months I will cherish ALWAYS and FOREVER.”
But what Arthur really cherished was seeing his mum getting to know baby Blake. As he explained: “The highlight, of course, was you spending all this precious time with Blake. Sadly she won’t remember this time but trust me, I have all the memories to remind her what an incredible Tati you were for the first few months of her life.”
However, the pair won’t be separate for long as the Dancing With the Stars judge hinted at a trip to visit Maria soon. Saying: “I know you are leaving now, and we are all going to miss you SO SO much, but we shall be reunited before you know it. You better get our room ready for the end of March.”

Writing: “Oh my god Arthur I’m crying. Blake is so lucky to have Tati, we all are. See you soon Maria. We LOVE YOU.”
