Gemma Wilkinson said that she was nervous that her daughter would not recognise her after they were separated for three years. It's emerged that she was only told yesterday that she would be reunited with her daughter.
"Atiya was told that I was Mummy and she said Mummy and smiled.
"I was worried that she would be upset or scared but she hasn't been.
"I don't know anything other than Atiya's back. I believe she is very happy to be back. She has a big smile, she is happy, she is playing nicely."
The mother of a six-year-old girl who was kidnapped by her father and taken to Pakistan three years ago said she was "overwhelmed".
