"Admittedly at the time I didn't know about the wonderful block button. Over time I realised that if I saw anything remotely negative, I'd block it straight away before reading the whole sentence."

At the time, her proud dad shared a sweet birthday tribute on his own account, writing: "To my beautiful, kind, considerate, moody, helpful, tantrum-throwing, loving, selfless, moody (did I mention that?) teenage daughter. Happy 13th birthday. Love you so very much.
"You're an amazing daughter, the best. A great sister and all-round good girl... BUT, God help me."

Speaking on his reality show, Life with the Andres, he explained: "With regards to music and stuff they say they really want to do it but when I say, 'Okay let's go and record' they get shy. And I say to them, 'No pressure, when you're ready, do it'.

"Unfortunately, and this is where I get scared with social media is because they're constantly, 'Well what's this person going to say?' or 'What's that person going to say?'
"This is where my concern was with Bista having a public Instagram account, which I didn't want her to have."
