Television presenter Grant Denyer has delighted fans with footage of his daughter achieving a major milestone, following her recent health battle.

Denyer’s daughter, Sunday, has been in a full-body cast for the past 8 months after undergoing surgery for hip dysplasia.

Sunday clearly hasn’t allowed her recent health woes to slow her down with a recent video shared by Denyer showing her running for the first time.

“She’s running !! This is huge! So proud of our gorgeous little Sunday. She has not let her hip dysplasia hold her back. It’s been 8 months of a full body plaster cast and now this one, finally she’s figuring out a way to get the mobility she’s always dreamed of. What every kid needs and deserves,” Denyer captioned the heartwarming video.

“She’s so far behind in some milestones compared to others because of her dislocated hip but then again, she’s blossoming like you wouldn’t believe in so many other ways. And she’s never complained or gotten frustrated with it. Her spirit is simply extraordinary. Always smiling, always playing and always captivating us all with her gorgeous attitude to life.

“She is a true delight to be around and watch grow. We love you so much Sunday… you make us proud every day.”

Denyer directed the post to Sunday, expressing his sorrow at seeing her in such a condition.

“Oh my poor little bubba!” he wrote.

“I’m so sorry to see you in this state.”

The day after her procedure, Denyer gave fans a look at what life was like for little Sunday post-recovery.
