"Date night is cancelled, first mumma, and now this… My emotions, just can't cope," she wrote on her stories. Showing the incredible clip on her Instagram grid, she said: "And he's off! Oh pickle. Honestly I am sobbing. If there's one good thing to come out of these scary hard times it's that mummy and daddy both being home to see this moment. Rex we are so proud of you. Oh my goodness it feels like time is going by at the blink of an eye and you're growing so so quickly. It's sad and I want time to stand still for a moment but at the same time watching you learn grown is the most incredible, most wonderful thing in the world. If anyone needs me I'll be in the egg chair with 100 Daim bars sobbing into Rex’s baby book. Love you all. P.S Theo is like 'I'm bored of this mum... I've been working since I was born and never got this attention."

The star's celebrity friends were quick to send in their well wishes, with Davina McCall writing: "Look how chuffed he is," whilst Myleene Klass shared several crying emojis.
