Junior, 15, simply said: "Love you big bro" and uploaded a photo of his mum and Harvey to his Instagram stories. Princess, 13, replied to her mum's message with: "I love you Harv soo much."

It comes shortly after Peter shared a birthday message for Harvey in honour of his 18th on 27 May. Peter, 47, was Harvey's stepfather during his marriage to Katie, from 2005 until 2009. Harvey's biological father is former footballer Dwight Yorke. Together, Peter and Katie, 42, welcomed Junior in June 2005 and Princess in June 2007. The Australian singer went on to have a son and a daughter with wife Emily MacDonagh - Amelia, six, and three-year-old Theo. Katie, meanwhile, is now a mother of five.
