Hi­lary Barry

Sunday Star-Times - Sunday Magazine - - THE GRILL - Pho­tographed by Be­van Read Night owl

When word went around that it was Hi­lary Barry’s turn to as­sume the Mother of the Na­tion man­tle pre­vi­ously held by Judy Bai­ley, not a sin­gle per­son com­plained (as far as we know).

Barry pos­sesses the kind, prag­matic, al­wayshas-a-Band-Aid-in-her-hand­bag vibe that you want in a na­tion’s mother. She’s also a real-life mother to two sons and such a re­li­able broad­caster that her shock exit from TV3 last year rocked New Zealand. We could barely face our ce­real un­til she showed up on TVNZ’s Break­fast. We treated Barry to a Mother’s Day Sun­day Grill.
