Amanda Holden is one proud mother! The Britain's Got Talent judge took to Instagram at the weekend to wish her daughter Lexi a "Happy Birthday" in a sweet post. Alongside a picture of Lexi, who turned 12 on Saturday, the 46-year-old gushed: "#happybirthday to our #beautiful #lexi #12 today. We couldn’t be more proud of this sensitive, funny, artistic, perceptive and completely nuts girl #lucky to be your #mama and #dada. We all love you." [sic] Later on that day, the mother-of-two posted a snap from a birthday outing to Cirque du Soleil, where the mother-and-daughter duo watched a performance of Ovo.

The couple tied the knot in December 2008, and Amanda has previously spoken about balancing her family and work life. She told Metro: "We're both so busy. It's about trying to carve out a bit of time for us - we have to explain to the girls that they must go to bed and let us have time alone, which is hard. My poor husband - he's so far down the list." Discussing Lexi, Amanda joked: "I do this thing at the moment when I drop Lexi off at school - I wind the window down and shout, 'I love you!' and she turns round and glares at me. Or I turn the music up really loud and wind the windows down so I'm like a rapper mum. It's hilarious!"
