The father-daughter duo looked like they were in great spirits as they posed for a photo while enjoying tasty looking scones with cream and jam, and a pot of tea. The Welsh-born actress joked that she was enjoying the food more than her dad, captioning the photo: "Two of my favorite things in one picture. My daddy and my traditional British afternoon tea!!!! Scones, jam, Cornish clotted cream. Just weighing up who comes first! Sorry Daddy then I will go and weigh myself."

She likened their marriage to a daily party, writing: "17 years ago today, I said ‘I do’ to my best friend and father of our two and a half month old son. Thought it could never get better than that day, but it did. Happy anniversary darling, Michael. With you, in my life, and Dylan and Carys, every day could be a twelve hour fantastic party at the Plaza in New York. Love you. #love#lovestrong."
