Tamara Ecclestone celebrates husband's birthday with family trip to Lake Como

Tamara Ecclestone treated her husband Jay Rutland to a fabulous 34th birthday trip - a family holiday to Italy with a stopover in Lake Como with their baby daughter Sophia. Tamara allowed her fans a glimpse into their getaway through Instagram pictures - and even shared a sweet snap of Sophia "catching up on some current affairs".

The trio spent time in Milan, where Sophia helped Tamara with a good day of shopping, before they enjoyed a night at Villa D’Este Hotel in Lake Como.

Early on Thursday morning, Tamara shared a picture of her family in front of a waiting helicopter. "Sad to leave Lake Como one of the most beautiful places we've been to", the 30-year-old captioned the snap.

On their trip home, daughter Sophia, who turns one on Tuesday, was caught reading Newsweek, leading to Tamara's witty message.

Proud mum Tamara has previously spoken about how much she loves being a mother and said that it has completely changed her life. "I'm totally exhausted all the time, but I don't care because it's a happy exhaustion," she told HELLO! magazine.

"I'm not drinking or having coffee and I'm being so healthy for Sophia. I'm sorry, but I'm completely obsessed with Sophia. I love her so much I'm like a crazy woman."

She added: "I've never felt like this before. I feel like a completely different person to the girl I used to be and I'm so much happier. I've never been this happy in my life."

Tamara married her husband Jay Cutler in the south of France in June 2013 after a whirlwind romance. The couple announced they were expecting their first child together just four months later.
