Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has paid tribute to her mum Joan with the sweetest snap on Instagram. The singer was celebrating Mother's Day on Sunday by harking back to her childhood in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Posting a photo of herself as a young girl in the company of her family, Cheryl captioned the image: "#HappyMothersday to my Mother and best friend. You have one of the kindest hearts in the world and are the most selfless person I have the pleasure of knowing. I Love you."
The throwback picture showed a cute Cheryl dressed in a white dress and wearing a red ribbon tied in her hair. The brunette beauty was pictured flashing her winning smile at the camera, and clutching the railings of a fun fair ride while her mum sat opposite her.
@KimberleyJWalsh Happy 1st Mothers Day!! You are a natural, beautiful amazing first time mother and I am so proud of you! 👶👩👪😘— Cheryl (@CherylOfficial) March 15, 2015
Cheryl Fernandez-Versini also celebrated her close friend Kimberley Walsh's first Mother's Day
Cheryl, who is married to Frenchman Jean-Bernard, most recently came out with the single Only Human, with its official digital release date set for 22 March. Earlier this week her husband took to Instagram to complain about the lack of airplay her track was getting.
"I would like an answer on how come people don't push people who deserve it," he wrote. "How come somebody as exceptional as my wife has to fight for being the best and even her own management, label and people that decide who goes on radio don't move their a****?"
