‘Thank you so much, it makes me so happy to be in the place I love! I can’t tell you, especially after a year that has been a real kick in the clam,’ she began. ‘But, it feels like we’re starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel.’

She went on: ‘People are getting the vaccine, my parents got theirs, I’m very happy to report that. It’s spring, so goodbye sweater weather.’

Rudolph noted her four children were in the audience, who she addressed directly at one point to give a little disclaimer.
