Fans adored the post - as did her daughters, who were quick to react to the loving tribute.

"Hehehe love you!" wrote Maddie, 18, to which Nadia jokingly replied: "Shhhhh people will know I'm your mum!!"

A fan added: "What a beautiful picture, they must be so proud to have a mum like you," whilst another remarked: "Best picture I have seen today for this special day."

Nadia has spoken out about her daughters in the past, telling HELLO! that homeschooling them for five years had brought them closer.

Nadia and Mark have been married for 19 years

"We are incredibly close. Being with the children 24/7 – well our kids actually went to homeschooling groups prior to the pandemic – but being with them for the amount of time that we are, it is a big deal," she said.

Nadia and Mark have been married for 19 years. When the couple tied the knot, the Loose Women star became a stepmother to Mark's two other daughters, Izzy, who was eight at the time, and Fleur, who was just three.
