Mother of three children, Raworth juggles her work and family
To be a BBC correspondents and a mother of three children is itself a challenging task. Sophie roars with laughter when she is asked if she’s some Superwoman.
BBC news presenter, Sophie Raworth makes her weekend perfect by hanging out with her husband and kids as much as she can. Her working hours at the BBC are family-friendly.

“I am not super-organised, but I have become the ultimate juggler. I live in dread of losing my diary, as it has everything in it from the children’s play dates to my work meetings and where I have to be. But I like being busy. I wouldn’t stop any of it, as I feel really energised. I feel lucky to be able to do it all.”
“I love fiddling around with the pots”- Sophie Raworth
Sophie’s parents had a dilapidated house in Twickenham, southwest London with a garden converted into a show garden. Since then, Sophie had been indulged in gardening. Sophie and Richard have a small place at her London home, but she still loves fiddling around with pots. Sophie said,
““We only have a small space, but I love fiddling around with the pots and I find it very therapeutic. Chelsea is going to be fantastic and I am hoping to draw massive inspiration from it all.”
Sophie also helped to open a garden known as The Legacy Garden that was transplanted from the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show. This garden is designed for the First Touch charity, which supports babies, families and neonatal unit's staff at St George's Hospital.

Sophie Raworth discovers her ancestral history:
In what might be one of the most surprising episodes of 'Who Do You Think You Are' a show where celebrities discover their ancestral identity, Sophie found out how her forefathers were, and she was not pleased.
Sophie grew up believing that she was the successor of the famous piano maker Henry Robert Mott, who played for King George IV in the late 18th century.
However, it turns out that her ancestory was actually Samuel Mott, a failure in the piano making business who was sacked and abandoned by his family.
"I came thinking I was related to Isaac Mott – the piano maker who made pianos for the king. I discover I’m directly related to his cousin who was a ‘mule of a chap’. It’s not quite the same is it?”
Says Raworth after finding of her lineage.
The news came as quite a surprise to Raworth and it didn't help when she found out about the life of Samuel Mott. Apparently, Samuel lost his parents to yellow fever at a young age him and his family moved to America, in search of a new life.
After their death, he and his siblings were separated and Samuel was taken care of by a bankrupt guardian, lived a life full of strife and hardships, and eventually committed suicide.
She was saddened by this truth but was enthralled at this discovery nonetheless and was quoted saying,
"I have been enchanted by the Motts. Like hands reaching out from the past, they really came alive. There’s a spirit in the Motts that I can still see filtering through my family now. I’m in awe of what they did, and I’m very proud to be one of their descendants."
On the bright side, she did discover that her great-great-great-great-great-grandfather was a Yorkshire pineapple grower in the 18th century. Let me tell you what, Pineapple in the 18th century in Britain, was worth a LOT.
