While the actress is enjoying spending quality time with her daughter at home, the star admitted that the pandemic has been hard for her teenager, especially during the lockdown.

She told The Telegraph: "Lockdown was very difficult for teenagers. "My daughter Valentina was very independent and did her online schoolwork on her own, but she didn't enjoy it. She also really missed her friends."

The actress loves nothing more than being a mum and opened up about parenthood during an interview with The Guardian. "I have never been apart from Valentina for more than a week – even when my husband and I went on our honeymoon, we were only without her for one week," she said.

Earlier in the month, Salma marked a double celebration on 14 February, which was both Valentine's Day, and her wedding anniversary.

The actress and Francois tied the knot in 2009, and Valentina was there at her parents' special day as a flower girl, just shy of her second birthday.

The actress was 41 when she welcomed her daughter and has always stood by the fact she says she's a better mum for being older.

"I feel that I've done enough things in life where I can appreciate the time I spend with her as my No. one priority and not feel I’m missing out on something," she said after her birth.

"I feel I’m a lot more patient. I wouldn’t trade this for anything in the world."
