The TV presenter took to Instagram on Wednesday and shared a snap of Malcolm posing with a lightsaber.

Alongside the post, she wrote: ‘Tonight I had a 27min instruction on lightsabers from the youngest Ungrateful.

‘He has just returned from the States where he custom made one. Himself.

‘This is important because today I was told by the @ukhomeoffice that this half-yank, half-Viking boy has been given leave to stay in this country for an indefinite period. He finally has Settled Status.

What is settled status?

Settled status grants EU nationals the right to live, work, and remain in the UK indefinitely, free of immigration control after Brexit.

People who have settled status can use the NHS for free, access public funds and travel in and out of the UK.

Those with settled status are also able to apply for British citizenship if eligible. 

Ulrika referred to her son as ‘half-yank, half-Viking’, referring to the fact she is originally from Sweden. 

The deadline for most people to apply to the Settlement Scheme was 30 June 2021. 

‘So thank you, UK for letting me keep him by my side. And if anyone is interested in lightsabers, you know where to find the bugger.’

MailOnline has contacted Ulrika for comment.   

The TV presenter was married to ex-husband Brian for eleven years before the couple parted ways in 2019.  

Ulrika is also mother to son Cameron, 26, with John Turnbull, daughter Bo with ex Markus Kempen and daughter Martha, 17, with Lance Gerrard-Wright. 

It comes after Ulrika vowed to ‘own’ her body after she shared a naked picture of herself in support of men’s mental health campaign, Bare Yourself.

Writing in her new column, the presenter candidly admitted that she was put out of her ‘comfort zone’ for the snap, saying: ‘I cannot avoid seeing the excess skin, the cellulite on the back of my legs and my ever-decreasing bum.’

Yet Ulrika insisted that she has to ‘accept’ and ‘take ownership’ of her nearly body as it has ‘given life to four beautiful, ungrateful children’.

The presenter shared the image of herself wearing nothing but a pair of wellies while tending to her garden to Instagram last month.

Ulrika penned in her column for The Sun: ‘I cannot avoid seeing the excess skin, the cellulite on the back of my legs, the diminished muscle on my forearm, my ever-decreasing bum and my beloved varicose veins which I’ve had operated on no fewer than three times.

‘But as my best friend Laura ­physically held my hand when I pressed the “go” button on Instagram, I felt I had to accept and take ownership of this nearly 54-year-old body. Own it. It is what it is. It’s given life to four beautiful, ungrateful children.’

Ulrika added: ‘I treat my body as a vessel for food and rum. It has carried four children for a total of three years. It has breastfed and gone up and down in size more often than a tart’s knickers. It has suffered operations and many invasive treatments.’

The presenter confessed her four children ‘rolled their eyes’ over the campaign photo.

Ulrika insisted she never asks for her children’s permission but rather questions their thoughts, which received no ‘outright objections’ over the snap.

Ulrika hit back at a troll who slammed her for sharing the naked picture of herself.

The mother-of-four responded to one shocking comment left on her picture which claimed she was ‘guilty of young girls getting raped’.

Sharing a screenshot to Stories, Ulrika sarcastically wrote: ‘That’s absolutely right. I’m guilty of the rape of young girls because I’ve taken my clothes off for charity.’

The troll had commended: ‘This has nothing to do with men mental health, this is just another attention seeking person who porn c**p and is responsible if someone gets raped.

‘Men are NOT the only one that is guilty of young girls getting raped. These stars are just as much guilty because of their part in everything, (sic)’

Despite the troll’s words, Ulrika’s post was overwhelmingly flooded with praise from other fans who applauded her for being brave enough to strip for a good cause.
