As women around the world mark this year's International Women's Day, TV presenter Holly Willoughby decided to pay homage to some of her loved ones in honour of the celebration. The This Morning host, 36, took to her social media pages on Wednesday to share a rare picture of her mother, daughter Belle and niece. The beautiful snap sees the three hold hands with their faces turned away from the camera. "My daughter, my niece and my mother... follow her lead! My ultimate woman on #InternationalWomensDay," Holly wrote alongside the Instagram image.
Last month, on her 36th birthday, Holly told her followers she was grateful because she already had "everything" - her three children. She posted a candid picture of herself hugging her three kids on the morning of her birthday. "Everything I could possibly ever want on my birthday!!!!" she simply commented. Holly, who shares children seven-year-old Harry, five-year-old Belle and Chester with husband Daniel Baldwin, recently opened up about her role as a mother. Speaking to HELLO! and other reporters at an event last week, the TV star explained: "I have become quite good at becoming strict with my time and in everything I do in life. I think people think that I work a lot more than I actually do, I work Monday to Thursday and I always have Fridays off."

Elaborating further, Holly admitted that her number one priority will always be her family - no matter what. "If I work in the afternoons than I make sure I'm home in time for bedtime," she added. "I have to do that, otherwise I go a bit grey inside. I love work but the most important thing is my family and making that right. If that doesn't feel right, I really put the brake on and pull back. Even friendships will sort of go down the pecking order because it's not as important as that really, if I'm honest. If they're true friends, they'll always understand that. I have a group of mums who are friends and we all are on the same page."
