Katherine Jenkins' photo with her daughter on the beach is melting hearts

Is this the sweetest Instagram snap ever?

Katherine Jenkins tends to keep her children out of the limelight, but on Thursday the opera singer couldn't help sharing a gorgeous photo with her daughter Aaliyah. The little girl melted hearts as she was pictured running along the beach next to her gorgeous mama, leaving tiny footprints in the sand. "Me & my girl..." Katherine simply wrote.

"You have the cutest jogging partner!!" one fan replied to her Instagram snap, while a second couldn't believe how big Aaliyah has grown, writing: "She's getting so big!" "Following mummy's footsteps," another commented.
