It’s a big day in Madonna’s household as her eldest child Lourdes turns 21! The singer paid tribute to her daughter on Saturday by posting a throwback photo of the pair together with a sweet message. The photo shows Madonna and Lourdes lying together on the grass in their garden and captures a wonderful mother-daughter bonding moment.

On her Twitter page, the proud mum shared three pictures of Lourdes, who she affectionately calls ‘Lola’. Madonna captioned the photos: "Whether you are in Cuba… Or in Kenya… Or in our own backyard!! You are always in my heart. Happy Birthday Lola. La Princessa," with several heart emojis.

The star’s fans loved the tribute, with one saying: "Such a beautiful photo!!! You can feel the love!" A second follower wrote: "Happy Birthday Lola! Beautiful as her mother!" Another fan told Madonna: "Happy Happy Birthday Lola!! All blessings...Enjoy every bit of it!! Beautiful picture!!"

In August, Madonna shared a photo of her family all together as she celebrated her 59th birthday with a gypsy-themed party in Puglia, Italy. Posing with her six children, the star looked happy and content to have all her children together. Standing alongside her were her sons Rocco, 17, and David, 11 and her four daughters, Lourdes, then 20, Mercy, 11, and twins Esther and Stella, age four.
